  • Tascam MiNiSTUDIO Personal US-32 Audio Interface for Online Broadcasts

    Designed for personal and aspiring broadcasters and gamecasters (i.e. those who broadcast their gaming prowess over the web), the Tascam MiNiSTUDIO Personal US-32 is a high-speed USB 2.0 interface. It's capable of capturing 24-bit/96 kHz audio, compatible with Mac and Windows computers, works with most DAW software, and can even interface with iOS devices using an adapter (available separately). With its intuitive layout and various inputs for recording the human voice, it's suitable for those looking to get into podcasting, gamecasting, and broadcasting—though its included software and high-resolution digital capacity renders it useful for all levels of broadcasters as well.

    For inputs, the US-32 sports a combination XLR/TRS input, a 3.5mm jack suitable for headset mics, and an auxiliary 3.5mm stereo input most agreeable for looping in the signal of consumer-grade audio equipment. A built-in omnidirectional condenser mic bypasses the need for extrinsic microphones, should you wish to speak directly into the interface. The unit provides two headphone outputs—one 1/4", one 3.5mm—as well as 48V phantom power for condenser microphones and support for 4-pole headphone/mic configurations.

    Hardware Components
    The US-32 features an efficient hardware layout that clearly displays its various features. Glancing at the tabletop interface, you'll see the combo XLR / 1/4" jack on the left, the built-in microphone in the center, and a sizable level meter to monitor the incoming signal. The reverb-blend knob sits prominently between the input-selector switch and on-air button, which commences transmission to your computer or device.

    The lower portion of the interface clearly shows its output knob, three pads for triggering on-board sound effects, and an effect on/off pad. Thus, while creating your personal broadcast, you'll have the tools you need to keep the show running at your fingertips.
    Included Software
    This device comes with software for better utilizing the hardware component of the US-32. The software features two panels, giving you an Easy view into the system and an Expert peak behind the curtain, so to speak.

    The Easy panel breaks down your options for manipulating signal into three overarching categories: Sound (presets for your particular sonic setup), Effect (presets for manipulating your vocals upon pressing the effect on/off pad), and Reverb (types of ambiance with which you can effect your vocal). Beneath these knobs, you can assign the sounds of the trigger pads, and set their volume as well.

    The Expert panel, on the other hand, gives you comprehensive controls of the US-32's compressor, equalizer, and reverb. In this panel, you also have control over buffer size, as well as the ability to manipulate the trigger pad's settings further; for example, you can set the rate of fade-in and fade-out for the sample being triggered.

  • Auray BAE-2X Two-Section Broadcast Arm with External Springs & Integrated XLR Cable

    The Auray BAE-2X is a sturdy two-section broadcast arm with external springs. It's a versatile and practical accessory for professional and home studios, and is ideal for broadcasts, voiceovers or podcasts. The arm features an integrated 15' XLR cable.

    The BAE-2X is designed with a wide range of motion for precise microphone placement and minimal noise when repositioning the microphone.

This broadcast arm features a standard 5/8"-27 microphone stud mount that's compatible with most shockmounts and microphone clips. The angle of the stud mount can be adjusted and secured with the locking knob, and the angle is maintained when repositioning the arm - eliminating the need to readjust it every time the arm is moved.

    The heavy-duty combo mount, consisting of a sturdy C-clamp and a heavy metal desktop mount, offers options for fastening the broadcast arm onto a desktop or permanent installation with the included mounting screws. The 14-inch riser is included to add height to the arm so that it extends over computer or studio monitors.
