TASCAM’s US-32 MiNiSTUDIO Personal and the US-42 MiNiSTUDIO Creator have been changing the way podcasters create their content, delivering an easy to use, professional quality interface with real time effects in a rugged, compact design.

Now, with the introduction of the new Version 2.1 update, TASCAM is about to change the world of online gaming and streaming audio as well.

Available now, MiNiSTUDIO version 2.1 includes updated drivers and firmware, as well as an updated user interface application for both for MacOS and Windows. This update adds a host of new features designed to take the MiNiSTUDIO to a whole different level.

Featuring a powerful new driver architecture optimized for popular videoconferencing applications such Skype and Google Hangouts, The TASCAM MiNiSTUDIO is able to deliver studio quality sound along with real-time voice processing, special effects and audio sharing, without the echo and feedback issues that have long plagued computer based communications. In addition, this new architecture, along with the creative possibilities inherent in the TASCAM MiNiSTUDIO, makes this the ideal counterpart for powerful game streaming platforms like Gameshow, Telestream’s industry-leading broadcast application for online gamers.

In addition to these new audio routing configurations, MiNiSTUDIO Version 2.1 includes a new Audio Ducking feature which will automatically lower the volume of background music or game sounds when the user begins speaking into the microphone.

TASCAM MiNiSTUDIO Version 2.1 is available as a free download now here and here.
