Stream a Little Stream
M•Caster was designed to make it easy to get great audio on your smartphone for live streaming and content creation. Want to use your phone to go live but not a fan of the built-in mic? Ultracompact and ultra-capable, M•Caster packs all the tone shaping and connectivity you need without making things complicated.

M•Caster was created with content creators at the top of the list. Every feature from easy tone shaping and effects to plug-and-play operation and ultracompact size, makes M•Caster the audio solution you've been looking for. And with its sleek looks and RGB lighting, you'll want it proudly displayed on camera for your next stream or video.
Big Sound, Little Mixer
At the heart of a M•Caster is some serious sound-shaping horsepower. Choose between an array of different ContourFX Presets that can add anything from thunderous depth to sparkly angelic tones to your voice with the turn of a single knob. Dial it in just right with the ContourFX control on each channel. Try each profile preset and find your signature sound.
The Finishing Touches
Want to add a little audio flair to your stream? How about punching up your vocals to get the hype train really moving? M•Caster makes it easy with fun StreamFX voice changing effects that you can activate at the turn of a knob.
Choose Your Mood Lighting
Everyone knows that slick RGB lighting is what really makes your computer run faster (not really), so Mackie made sure that M•Caster provides that extra LED-fueled oomph that you require. All along the bottom is an LED strip with 7 gorgeous colors to choose from.
Size Matters
M•Caster Live's ultracompact design makes it insanely easy to take with you anywhere and capture pristine audio for your streams. Being powered via USB means you can plug in a USB small backup battery and use M•Caster for hours on the go.
USB Yourself
Just plug in with the included USB cable, tweak a couple software settings, and boom you've got that M•Caster sweetness direct into your computer. Easily integrate a phone caller into your stream by utilizing the Phone input and automatic Mix Minus will make sure the caller only hears you and not themselves.
Powerful Accusonus Plugins Included
Need a bit more refinement? M•Caster Live includes a lifetime license for the Accusonus ERA Voice Leveler and ERA De-Esser plugins plus 3-month subscription to Accusonus' All Access Suite, which gives you access to tons of great tools for audio repair, voice optimization, plus tens of thousands of royalty-free sound effects and background music.
