With the growing demand in the world of online content creation and streaming, more manufacturers are developing solutions that not only sound good but look good on camera. In this case, the BEACN Mic, Mix, and Mix Create arrive in the form of a dynamic mic and 2 compact mixers, all with app-controlled features that allow you to streamline your workflow without the intensive learning curve associated with some equipment of this nature. Let’s dive into the features and see how these tools shape up.
BEACN Mic – A dynamic USB microphone with onboard effects
The BEACN Mic with its all too familiar design, reminiscent of the SM7, comes in both black and white and has a colourful RGB ring that lights up when the mic is in use. This is a dynamic microphone with a difference, in that firstly, it connects directly to your PC via USB-C, and secondly, it’s equipped with an onboard DSP system. This gives you real-time noise reduction and four effects, including compressor, expander/gate, EQ, and enhancer. These effects are controlled via the BEACN app, which is currently only available for Windows 10. In addition, the mic has an integrated headphone out which is also controlled via the app. The BEACN Mic is available for $279.
BEACN Mix and Mix Create – Compact mixers
Each providing a set of features for dealing with live streaming audio, the BEACN Mix and Mix Create, like the BEACN Mic are also both available in black and white. The slightly larger Mix Create gives you the useful ability to create submixes, which makes it easy to discreetly switch between the main mix, the host, or the guest. Both mixers connect via USB-C and are equipped with a five inch LED screen and four push-button encoders. This gives you direct control of your mix, but you can also do this via the BEACN app. The BEACN Mic is priced at $149 and the larger Mix Create goes for $199.
