We are living in the age of smartphones. They have replaced portable game devices, palm pilots and diaries. However, it is the use of smartphones as digital cameras that seems to be most significant of these replacements.


Every year, the camera’s on our smartphones are getting better and better. The one area limiting the use of smartphones has always been poor audio quality. Enter, the Roland GO:MIXER. No longer will you have to record HD video with really poor audio quality.

The Roland GO:MIXER is compact, portable and easy to use. It will allow you to record high-quality music with just your smartphone. All you need to do is plug it into your smartphone, and you can record full high-quality audio directly onto your video track as you record.

In the world of social media, quality is king. Simple smartphone videos have always been rejected for being poor quality. The mono microphones are often noisy. In addition, they are impossible to control a mix with. Whoever was closest to the phone, would generally be the loudest.

Before, you could use your phone to record video, then use an additional unit to record audio. You would then need to do some post editing to align the video and the audio. After that you would then need to bounce the video down and only after that would you have a complete project.

By using the Roland GO:MIXER you are able to eliminate that step. If your band was to record live playthrough videos, you can now save hours of work. It truly is the ideal solution for adding professional sound to your social media videos.

This will allow you to create candid and on the fly videos for your audience. If you get the video you want in one take, you can directly upload it to the social media channel of your choice. And the video will have great audio quality.
