Record a podcast with up to four people with the TASCAM Mixcast 4, a tabletop mixer and recorder with sound effects, independent headphone outputs, and mix-minus functionality, for live or streamed guests and more. With the Mixcast 4, you'll have everything you need to record a high-quality multicast podcast straight to an SD card or straight to a stereo USB feed, for instantaneous streaming over your favorite platform.

You'll enjoy the form factor of eight faders at your fingertips, as well as the eight sound-effect pads, and the built-in 5" touchscreen for deeper control. You'll be able to record up to 14 tracks at a time straight to an SD card, or record stereo over USB straight to your DAW, or streaming platform. In addition to TASCAM's Podcast Editor Software, the Mixcast 4 ships with an included AC adapter and a USB Type-C cable.

Comprehensive Recording for Podcasting
Record up to four people in person with the built-in mic pres, which accept XLR-1/4" connections for all manner of microphones. In addition, you'll find stereo line inputs with selectable 1/4" or 3.5mm connections to interface with phones and consumer devices. Pair this with a Bluetooth input for wireless connections to phones and devices, and you'll have everything you need to capture audio for all your guests.
Mix-Minus Functionality
Stereo line inputs and the Bluetooth inputs both come with mix-minus functionality, so your remote guests won't hear an echo of themselves when they're talking.
Headphones Galore
Four independently controlled headphone outputs are on hand, but that's not all. A 3.5mm TRRS headphone output mirrors headphone output 1, should you only have a headset with a 3.5mm connection on hand. The Mixcast 4 also provides a Talkback function that allows you to speak to the participants privately over their headphones, as well as guests connected via USB, smartphone, and Bluetooth.
Pads and Faders
With 8 faders and 8 sound pads (in 8 banks) under your fingers, you'll feel like a consummate professional. You'll have full sound pad control for editing and triggering sound effects, and transport functionality for one-touch recording. Adjust levels between pads and switch sound pad banks while recording for access to more sounds. There's even a normalizing function for pad sources.
Export Files in Multiple Formats
Export files in WAV, MP3, and MP4 formats.
Record How You Like, When You Like
Record to an SD card to work without a computer, or route the Mixcast 4 into a Mac, Windows, iOS, or Android device for a 14-in / 2-out audio capture.
Included Software
The Mixcast 4 comes with TASCAM's Podcast Editor software, for basic editing and mixing duties as well as control over the sound pads.

Has anyone tried the USB Power Cable from Rode ...

Has anyone tried the USB Power Cable from Rode (DC-USB1) to see if it works? The voltage is the same, and the screw-on connector looks identical.
Asked by: Bob
We do not recommend using the Rode DC-USB1 USB Power Cable with the Tascam Mixcast 4. The RodeCaster Pro uses AC power while the Mixcast 4 requires DC power. Tascam specifically points out that only the included Tascam power adapter should be used to power the Mixcast 4. Using adapters from other manufacturers may cause damage and will definitely void your warranty.
