Audio Technica Details AT UMX3 Livestreaming USB Audio Mixer

Audio-Technica announced the AT-UMX3 livestreaming USB audio mixer — Audio-Technica’s first USB audio mixer for streaming and other applications. Audio-Technica says the AT-UMX3 is a compact, desktop audio mixer equipped with all the functions needed for livestreaming.

The AT-UMX3 is basically an all-in-one interface with one XLR / 1/4-inch microphone input, two LINE inputs and a headphone jack for monitoring. The AT-UMX3’s loopback function allows users to mix mic and instrument audio with sound from their computer into a single stream — and be confident their audience will hear the same mix. When loopback is turned on, it is possible to play background music while streaming or to stream game sounds and voices at the same time.

The mixer is filled with features for those new to livestreaming, including a control panel, microphone mute function to quickly silence the microphone, and a microphone monitor mute function to mute the mic audio only in the mix sent to connected headphones. The mixer’s high-performance A/D converter provides resolution up to 24-bit/192 kHz, ensuring output for voice and instruments. Additionally, the AT-UMX3 features an advanced noise-resistant design to prevent the pickup of unwanted electronic noise from smartphones, Wi-Fi routers, and other sources.

The AT-UMX3 is equipped with professional audio features such as a Neutrik XLR/6.3 mm (1/4-inch) combo microphone jack, stable 48 V phantom power supply, a Hi-Z input jack for direct connection of an electric guitar and a stereo input for a keyboard. The system is compatible not only with Windows and macOS, but also with iOS, iPadOS, and Android OS. Compatibility has also been verified with major livestreaming apps and online chat apps.
