Start Simple
Launch your solo podcast in moments, and easily take the quality of your content to a higher level with the Focusrite Vocaster One. This ultraportable podcast interface turns your computer or USB-C iPad into a potent and intuitive content-creation station, with gobs of automatic gain for any kind of microphone, onboard sound enhancements a button-push away, and a smart selection of podcast-centric software. With the option to tap remote guests, infuse music and other audio clips, and even feed the mix to a camera, the Vocaster One is a well-rounded podcasting solution that remains simple.
Good Sound in No Time
Just talk and let Vocaster's Auto Gain function automatically set your level in seconds before you record. With phantom power and over 70 dB of gain on tap, Vocaster can boost any mic's output to a strong signal. Plus, you can sweeten your vocal sound instantly with three different podcaster-approved presets and tap the Mute button to keep coughs, gulps, and sneezes out.

The interface's Easy Start tool helps get you going quickly, bypassing the turmoil of having to figure everything out on your own. If you run into a roadblock, award-winning support is available at any time, day or night.

Easy Hookup for One Mic and More
Connect your preferred XLR microphone, a set of headphones, and stereo speakers straight to the Vocaster. For vloggers, there is a dedicated TRS output that lets you feed your mix right into your camera. Input and output levels are easily adjustable from the tactile controls on the Vocaster.

Being a class-compliant USB-C interface, Vocaster works with most Mac/Windows computers as well as USB-C iPads. Since it can be powered through a USB connection to your host device or via an external USB power supply (available separately), it is truly portable and convenient.

Guests Welcome
Plug your smartphone into the TRRS port (TRRS cable available separately) to feature a call-in guest, or bring in any other audio from your phone. If your mobile device doesn't have a TRRS headphone port, snag an adapter—Lightning to TRRS and USB-C to TRRS are the two most common—to make the hookup possible.
Add Computer Audio
Equipped with two sets of stereo loopback, Vocaster allows you to stream virtually any audio from your computer, such as:

  • Music beds and themes
  • Intros and outros
  • Soundboards, sound effects, calls, and more
Software to Boot
With Vocaster, you're never on your own. It comes with Hindenburg Lite (and a six-month trial to Hindenburg Pro) recording software, a six months of Acast Influencer for hosting and monetizing your podcasts, and a six-month trial of Ampify Studio Premium to find and tweak music loops for your project.
It's Showtime
Designed like a broadcast studio, Vocaster Hub is an integrated mixer that provides access to levels, sound enhancements, audio routing from your computer and phone, and more. Not having your computer handy won't stop you from checking out what your listeners will hear, thanks to Show Mix.
Made for the Future
Focusrite's carefully chosen components, biodegradable and recyclable packaging, and use of recycled sources for over half of the plastics used in the product reduce the impact Focusrite interfaces have on the planet.
