Easily create exciting webcasts from your smartphone or tablet with the Roland GO:LIVECAST, a complete live streaming production studio with a compact desktop interface and a flexible, interactive app. Its versatile I/O and tactile controls let you integrate multiple sound sources, control your device's camera, and trigger media files in no time.

With plug-and-play setup and intuitive icons labeling all ports and controls, the GO:LIVECAST is purpose built for user-friendly operations. Since it is compatible with popular streaming platforms and includes multiple cables for simple hookup to Lightning- or USB-equipped mobile devices, the GO:LIVECAST seamlessly fits in with your preferred workflow.

The companion app offers several features for enhancing the appearance of your webcast—a skin filter provides a softer look, in-camera mirroring delivers the correct left/right perspective to the viewer, automatic portrait/landscape switching. Incorporate a second smartphone camera via Wi-Fi to take advantage of split-screen views and one-touch camera switching for more complex video production techniques. Additionally, the app displays viewer comments in a scrolling window, so you can stay in tune with feedback from your audience.

Complete Miniature Webcasting Studio
Take control of your webcast's audio and video via the straightforward and customizable control layout. At your fingertips, clearly labeled buttons let you start your stream, show titles, and trigger various media files such as photos, videos, music, and sound effects in an instant.
Easy Setup and Operation
Forget about installing special drivers and fiddling with device settings; the GO:LIVECAST offers plug-and-play setup so you can get started right away. Simply connect your smartphone/tablet and a pair of headphones; you don't even need an external microphone because the GO:LIVECAST boasts a built-in mic, which also offers a reverb effect for added spaciousness. If your connected headset has an onboard mic, the GO:LIVECAST can utilize it instead.
Enhance Your Live Stream with Various Media
You don't need prior webcasting experience to use the GO:LIVECAST app's intuitive media tools and bring a competitive production quality to your content. There are preinstalled options for launching photos, videos, music, and sound effects, and you're free to build custom libraries at any time.

Push your productions further into the realm of professional with custom titles and text. To maximize efficiency and make your work easier, store media elements for different shows in Live Sets, which can be pulled up for easy access before you start streaming.
Supports Popular Streaming Platforms
The GO:LIVECAST app logs you into your accounts on popular streaming services such as Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook Live, enabling you to select a platform and press a button to begin your webcast. During your stream, a scrolling window in the app displays viewer comments.
Supports iOS and Android Platforms
The GO:LIVECAST is compatible with both iOS and Android devices, and includes Lighting and USB connectors.
Designed for Optimal Visuals
In the GO:LIVECAST's companion app, select your mobile device's front or rear camera and apply a skin filter for a softer, smoother appearance on camera. Your phone's position automatically determines portrait or landscape mode, and in-camera mirroring ensures that your audience will see you with the correct left/right perspective.

For more complex video production techniques, you can set up a second smartphone camera through Wi-Fi and either switch between the cameras or use them both in split-screen mode.

Versatile Connectivity
Since the XLR-1/4" combo input provides switchable 48V phantom power, you can use your preferred dynamic or condenser microphone. A dedicated 3.5mm stereo mini-jack input is provided to accommodate a line-level source such as a mixer, media player, synth, or drum machine. Use the 3.5mm stereo output to connect your favorite earbuds or headphones.

Via the GO:LIVECAST's four knobs, you're given effective control over the levels for the mic signal, line input, pad playback, and headphone output. Plus, there's a mic-mute button for times when you need to cut the mic feed if you need take a drink or cough.

Roland GO:LIVECAST Reviews

Cool features but too limited by the Roland app

By Andrew
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2021-11-07

I really want to love it, but the app is so limited, and I don't think Roland is very interested in updating it or expanding on what could be a very cool thing. My main issue is that it will not stream to multiple platforms. You have to choose Facebook, or Youtube, but can't stream to them both at the same time. I feel like that would be an easy upgrade for Roland to configure, but I highly doubt they care. Secondly it only works with phones and ipads, not your computer and not with an external camera. It doesn't work with 3rd party streaming apps like Streamlabs or Melon. The proprietary cable is really short, which means that unless you are filming 3 feet from your phone, if you want to push one of the cool buttons midstream, you have to walk up while on camera, push the button, and go back to where you were, which looks stupid. The cool things about it are that you can hook up an external mic, you can hook up external sound, and dial in the volume with a physical knob, and you can program the buttons to do various cool things like punch up titles, text, images. But like I said you have to be 3 feet from the camera in order to do that because of the cable length. And really my biggest beef with Roland is that they need to update the app to be multi stream compatible.

Supporting App needs work

The product itself is nice and easy to use. However if you're a content creator that plans to use this item to stream with multiple different client FB/Youtube logins, I would not purchase this. I tested this product by using my personal Facebook account and it worked fine. However, when I went to use the product day of the shoot with my client, the app would NOT let me sign out of my Facebook and into my clients. Completely impossible. I wrote to Roland and called... with absolutely no answer. In the end I now have a really cool paper weight. Thanks Roland.

No Brainer For Beginners

I’ve been wanting to learn how to live stream and record videos of myself playing drums or band practice with the guys, but also be able to have professional sound quality being able to plug into a pa mixer or a line in. I’m new to all of this and just didn’t know where or how to start. Searching around for some kind of device that would simplify things, that was easy to use and get me up and running quickly. Since I play Roland V-Drums, I saw that Roland came out with this new Go: LIVECAST device and after reading reviews and watching some video tutorials about it, I figured this might be what I’ve been looking for. When I finally received it and started setting it up, I was super surprised out how easy and pretty quickly I was able to learn how to use it and also be able to use another iPad/iPhone or android device to add another camera so that I can get another point of view while using the LIVECAST unit. Within an hour I had everything set up and was able record my first video. There were some adapters that I didn’t have that I needed yet to be able to do all the things I want to, but after ordering and getting them, I’m doing some really cool stuff with the Go: LIVECAST that I never thought a beginner like me would be able to accomplish in such a short time. I have a very low attention span, so I get frustrated pretty quickly when I can’t figure something out relatively fast and I was having fun with this right away. I love this little device and I’d recommend it not only to beginners, but to seasoned professionals as well. It’s awesome and kudos once again to Roland for coming out with another great product.

App doesn't allow you to change angles or zoom with your camera. Doesn't make sense.

Information regarding compatible devices is subject to change and I do see that the Roland GO:LIVECAST app is now compatible to use with an iPod touch running iOS 12 and later, so it should work.
