The recent rise of digital media production platforms like podcasting, streaming, and content creation have presented opportunities for new voices in the audio world to make a name for themselves. One such voice that has recently made waves is a Canadian company by the name of BEACN. With several recent products that have taken the streaming world by storm, such as the BEACN Mix and BEACN Mic, this small company has distinguished itself with premium tools for the modern streamer. Here, we will examine some of those products and see how they can improve your streams and content production.
First up is the BEACN Mic, a digital dynamic microphone designed with content creators, streamers, and podcasters in mind. This sleek, stylish microphone looks and sounds great, with potent onboard noise suppression technology that makes capturing clean audio a breeze, and plenty of built-in FX like a gate, an expander, compression, and EQ. And with bass enhancement/exciter and a convenient USB-C output, the BEACN Mix is truly an entire studio in one device, allowing you to set up a high-quality audio capture system with a single purchase.
The BEACN Mic will look great on your desk, too, with a customizable RGB ring light. The lights can be computer-programmed to match the color themes of your other RGB gear, simplifying the process of creating a unified, eye-catching streaming setup. Plus, with included threads for US and European mounting types and an integrated cable manager, you can use the BEACN Mic with almost any kind of boom arm and create a neat and tidy arrangement that will look great over the Web.
The BEACN Mix series is available in two flavors: The BEACN Mix and the BEACN Mix Create. Both of these beautiful control surfaces provide you with a large, customizable, 5" color LCD screen and four assignable push-button knobs that let you adjust the various settings and inputs of your stream with ease. You also get convenient app support for dragging and dropping input sources, customizable themes to match your streaming look, and universal support for all Windows-compatible hardware.
However, what sets the BEACN Mix Create apart is its Knob Paging features, with the ability to manage an unlimited number of sources. If you are someone who produces very large, sophisticated streaming content, this is an extremely vital feature that will let you break free from any limitations on your creativity. Taking things even further, the BEACN Mix Create sports the ability to produce two sub-mixes, letting you simultaneously set up one mix for yourself, and a second mix for your stream. This ensures that the audio is perfect for everyone.
That’s not all, however, because the BEACN Mix Create also sports a powerful routing table that gives you precise control over where your audio is going. This table expands and contracts automatically based on how many sources you have assigned, a serious benefit to streamers with lots of inputs and little time for menu diving or window resizing.
Plus, you get mute modes with your BEACN Mix Create, which lets you mute individual sources or entire mixes, as well as individual inputs and outputs. You can even tie this into the sub-mixes feature by allowing each sub-mix to save its own arrangement of muted channels.
