Tascam Updates MiNiSTUDIO Interfaces For Podcasters

Tascam has announced a new software and firmware update for its MiNiSTUDIO line of personal broadcasting interfaces. The Version 2.3 update offers a host of new features, including the addition of an expanded set of ASIO drivers.

With the new architecture, Tascam said Podcasters can now easily record their shows, including interviews with guests and sound effects, and have each element recorded on unique tracks within their Windows-based Digital Audio Workstation, giving them complete editing access. This level of control during post-production addresses a long-standing need of podcasters the world over.

Other features in the new update include the addition of SceneMemory, as well as selectable reverb send on the individual inputs of the MiNiSTUDIO Creator US-42. SceneMemory enables users to save snapshots of their MiNiSTUDIO configurations for instant access between—or during—broadcasts. These snapshots include memory of all settings, including PON assignments, Vocal Effect selections, Compressor and EQ settings and more. For US-42 users, the Expert panel now allows users to select whether each input is routed to the reverb engine or not. This feature delivers deeper creative control for musicians who enjoy live streaming, enabling them to selectively add reverb to their vocal microphone while not adding reverb to their guitar sound.

MiNiSTUDIO software and firmware version 2.3 for both TASCAM MiNiSTUDIO Personal US-32 and MiNiSTUDIO Creator US-42 are available now as a free download.
