  • 1 799:-

Tascam  MiNiSTUDIO Creator US-42B är ett USB-gränssnitt som utvecklats för att  göra det möjligt för alla att enkelt sända sina podcasts till världen.  Genom att använda en dedikerad enhet med högkvalitativa ljudkretsar för  mikrofon och instrumentingång lägger du grunden för imponerande ljud i  hög kvalitet. Dessutom erbjuder MiNiSTUDIO Creator flera tekniker som  kan göra programmen mer intressanta, som ex förinspelade klapp, jubel  m.m. Med dedikerade Sound Pads på enheten kan du också aktivera sådana  ljud genom att bara trycka på knapparna. Det finns också en duckfunktion  som sänker volymen på bakgrundsmusik när någon pratar samt använda  rösteffekter och reverb för att förbättra atmosfären och höja spänningen  i ett program.

Sa vi ljudkvalitet? Att förse dina lyssnare med ljud som är tydligt  är ett krav för att att få dem att känna sig mer välkomna. MiNiSTUDIO  Creator har utmärkta ljudkretsar som ärvts från Tascams proffesionella  produkter, så att du kan fånga klart ljud bara genom att ansluta en  mikrofon eller annan ljudkälla.

Eftersom du kommer att använda den här enheten medan du sänder är  användarvänlighet extremt viktigt. Användargränssnittet har så få  kontroller som möjligt så att det kan användas intuitivt även av  personer som inte är speciellt tekniskt kunniga. Dessutom har den  dedikerade programvaran som används för att välja ljudeffekter och  utlösta ljud två olika flikar, en ENKEL sida som vem som helst kan  använda och en EXPERT-sida för avancerade användare med alla detaljer du  kan tänka dig.
