Tascam MiNiSTUDIO overview

  • 1Description

The 2-Person Online Broadcasting Kit from B&H is a space-efficient online broadcasting setup designed to provide versatile, easy, and fun functionality for two people in podcasting, live streaming, or gamecasting. It includes a Tascam MiniStudio Creator US-42 audio interface, two dual-sided headsets, and two 3.5mm TRRS to XLR 3-pin and 3.5mm TRS splitter cables.

Use the supplied cables to connect the headsets to the audio interface; the headset's gooseneck mic negates the need for an external microphone. Once the audio interface is plugged into your computer, take advantage of its selectable voice effects and three trigger pads, which can play the supplied bell, buzzer, and applause sounds or activate your own custom samples. Easy and expert modes offer friendly and comprehensive customization.

  • Tascam MiNiSTUDIO Creator US-42 Audio Interface for Online Broadcasting

    Designed for gamecasters—those who broadcast their gaming prowess over the web—as well as podcasters wishing to expand their horizons, the TASCAM MiNiSTUDIO Creator US-42 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 familiar layout and various inputs for recording the human voice, it can give you the tools to introduce many elements into the milieu of your podcast, such as the ability to record guitar directly, as well as the support for two microphones at once—should you have guests coming over to chat.

    For inputs, the US-42 sports two high-definition discrete-architecture preamps, two combination XLR/TRS connections, a 3.5mm jack suitable for headset mics, and an auxiliary 3.5mm stereo input most agreeable for introducing the signal of consumer-grade audio equipment. In addition to the stereo RCA outputs for connecting to monitors, the unit offers 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 Overview
    The US-42 features an efficient hardware layout that clearly displays its various features. Glancing at the tabletop interface, you'll see the sizable level meter in the middle for monitoring incoming signal. It sits between two combination XLR / 1/4" TRS jacks for accepting your microphone signals. Below this row of features, a reverb-blend knob sits prominently between two input-selector switches.

    The lower portion of the interface clearly shows two output knobs—one for monitors, one for your various headphones—three pads for triggering on-board sound effects, and an effect on/off pad. Thus, while creating your 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-42. 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-42'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.

  • 2 x Senal SMH-1020CH Communication Headset (Dual-Sided)

    Designed for wired and wireless communications alike, the Senal SMH-1020CH is a dual-sided communications headset for use in TV or radio broadcast settings, as well as sports applications and behind-the-scenes theater environments. First, you'll notice its deep, padded ear cushions, which offer not only comfort, but isolation and noise-reduction in noisy scenarios. Behind the ear cushions, 40mm neodymium drivers give you a wide frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz, as well as an expansive dynamic range.

    The microphone supplied with the SMH-1020CH is a cardioid dynamic capsule, designed to minimize pickup of off-axis sound while capturing your voice clearly and intelligibly. It sits upon a durable gooseneck that can be rotated 180°. This configuration can be used on the left or right side of the SMH-1020CH. Additionally, a switch is built into the gooseneck that automatically mutes the signal when it's swiveled into the vertical position; thus, to mute your microphone, all you have to do is flip the gooseneck into the upright position. 

    The SMH-1020CH interfaces with a variety of cables that offer compatibility with many major wired and wireless systems, such as Telex and PortaCom. You can also use this communication headset with broadcast consoles, mixers, and computers. Simply plug your separately-available, corresponding cable into the SMH-1020CH's twist-locking jack, and you're good to go. The headphones are also collapsible, making storage and transportation a cinch.

    Note: Please note, the SMH-1020CH does not ship with an output cable; for a list of compatible cables, please see our various kit configurations, or contact one of our specialists online, over the phone, or at our illustrious SuperStore.

  • 2 x Senal SMH-HM3X Cable for Senal SMH-Series Communication Headsets

    The Senal SMH-HM3X is a replacement cable intended for use with SMH-series communication headsets. It can also be used to augment your headset's versatility, giving you the ability to plug into a broadcast console or mixing board.

    At one end, you'll find the 3.5mm TRRS connector and corresponding locking jack. This twists into your SMH-1010CH or SMH-1020CH communication headset, establishing a secure and reliable connection all the while.

    At the other end, you'll note two different connectors. One is a 3.5mm phone-type plug, while the other is a male 3-pin XLR connector. These two connections allow you to monitor incoming signal while simultaneously using the microphone to communicate with your cast or crew. The SMH-HM3X is part of a whole ecosystem of SMH-series cables, all of which let you swap between the pin-outs of different communication and broadcast systems with ease.

    Compatible with Senal SMH-Series Headsets
    The SMH-HM3X fits perfectly into the twist-lock of your SMH-1010CH or SMH-1020CH, ensuring a secure connection to your headset.
    Compatible with Broadcast Consoles & Mixing Boards
    This cable terminates in two connection points—a 3.5mm male plug and a 3-pin male XLR connector. As such, this cable allows you to connect your SMH-series headset to a mixing board or broadcast console, giving you the ability to monitor incoming signals while communicating with a cast/crew.
