Audio and Video Mixing
The hardware interface handles all your audio input and output needs with the power of a small broadcast mixer. Using simple and straightforward controls, one person can manage video switching and audio mixing—all at once—with no prior production experience required. Monitor your audio mix through headphones or connected monitor speakers, you’ll know that your livestream viewers are hearing the content you’re delivering.
The AeroCaster hardware features two combo XLR-1/4″ inputs for connecting microphones, electronic musical instruments, or a live sound console. A wide range of onboard effects allows your talent to sound their best. The headphones jack supports a feed from a headset mic or the mic on your earbuds for a third vocal source, and you can bring in additional audio from a mobile device or music player via the 3.5mm stereo input.
AeroCaster LIVE App
From within the AeroCaster LIVE app, you have integrated access to media content stored on iCloud Drive. Play your opening theme to start the stream, trigger bumpers between breaks, or simply add some cool background music or sound effects whenever you like.
