NAMM 2022: Focusrite has unveiled the Vocaster, an audio interface designed especially for podcasts.

The new devices come with either one or two inputs and include plenty of functionalities specially designed for podcasters.

One of these features, for example, is an AutoGain function which can automatically adjust the levels of connected microphones, meaning not much microphone experience is needed. This is paired with the Enhance feature for a choice of three voice enhancements, taking the need away to set your own EQ and compression.

Another clever feature is the stereo loopback function which can allow audio clips such as intros and sound effects to be integrated directly into the recording.

Both the Vocaster One and Two are bus powered through a USB-C, and can be plugged into Mac, Windows and iOS devices.

The One has a single XLR microphone input with 48V phantom power, so there’s no need to push an additional button as with other Focusrite interfaces. It also has 6.3mm headphone output and line outputs for monitor connection. The latter has dual XLR inputs and dual headphone outputs accordingly. It also features Bluetooth 5.0 for wireless connections.

Both interfaces are available for pre-order, with the Vocaster One priced at €199 and the Vocaster Two at €299. However, there are also bundle deals for both interfaces with Focusrite dynamic mics and headphones.

Focusrite are at Namm Show 2022 this weekend at booth #201A. Go take a look and find out more information at focusrite.com.
