TC-Helicon GO XLR Mini
Designed for content creators and live streamers, the TC Helicon GoXLR Mini is a device that combines a preamp, a studio-quality effects engine, and a USB interface to give you the power to create high-quality audio content without negatively affecting video quality.
On Windows platforms, the GoXLR Mini establishes up to 12 USB audio devices; assign your various apps to each device so you can control app volumes individually from the device. Like the GoXLR, the GoXLR Mini utilizes a high-quality Midas preamp to provide a powerful, yet quiet operation. As such, the unit is suitable for any microphone, even those requiring phantom power.
The hardware itself sports a balanced XLR microphone input, a 3.5mm mic input, and a 3.5mm line input. 3.5mm line out and headphone outputs are on hand. Connect to computers over USB 2.0 or TOSLINK optical connections.
With EQ, compression, and gating coming from the unit itself, you don’t have to spend DSP processing audio on your computer. This leaves the processing power on hand for keeping up high frame rates without issues while live-streaming.
A mute button and a censor button are both provided, so if you find yourself coughing or cursing, you can easily keep offending sounds out of the broadcast. Download the GoXLR Mini app, and you’ll be able to control aspects of your studio, such as lighting, audio routing, and more. With this handy little device, you can go from gaming to ASMR profiles at the press of a button.
