Boss GIGCASTER 5 Audio Streaming Mixer

Plug in a guitar or bass to the Boss GIGCASTER 5 and play with flagship-level GT amps and effects. Connect mics and shape voices with studio-grade processing from the VE series. And bring in another instrument using the stereo line input. Specifically, you can mix up to five sources as you stream. Specifically, this includes background music and sound from a remote guest or student.

Adding in customizable features, external control support, and more, Gigcaster 5 is an essential partner for music performers, remote educators, podcasters, and anyone creating music-focused media.

Killer Guitar and Bass Sounds, No External Gear Needed

With Gigcaster 5, you can stream and jam with impressive guitar and bass tones without the need for external processing. Just plug into the front-panel jack and start rocking with premium amps and effects ported from the top-line GT-1000. Versatile preset patches provide 100 ready-to-play sounds, while 200 user locations are available for storing parameter tweaks and custom-built setups.

A built-in tuner is always at hand, a vital tool for every session. And with extensive control support via footswitches, expression pedals, and the GA-FC or GA-FC EX, you can operate your rig hands-free as you perform.

Perform with Mics and Other Instruments

Gigcaster 5 also features inputs for additional gear and playing along with other musicians. Tap into broadcast-quality XLR mic sounds with two low-noise preamps, wide dynamic range, and phantom power support. And use the stereo line input for an instrument such as a keyboard or drum machine.

Dedicated vocal effects from the popular VE series allow you to sing with effects. Use compression, pitch correction, delay, and reverb, and you can even dial up harmonies that automatically follow a set key. Effects are also available for speaking—including fun transformer effects that change the sound of your voice. Alongside this are console effects to enhance the sounds of connected sources.

Pro Multichannel Audio Mixing

Boss GIGCASTER 5 puts a deep array of mixing and audio routing features at your fingertips. Along with the three analog input channels, there are dedicated stereo channels for Bluetooth® and USB audio. Also, each mixer channel includes a variety of sound-shaping options for pro mixing on the fly.

Gigcaster 5 can also communicate with multiple computer audio channels over USB. This provides lots of flexibility for different streaming applications and working with remote guests, DAW music tracks, game audio, and more.

Compact Streaming Power – GIGCASTER 5

The compact Gigcaster 5 delivers a host of real-time creative tools while taking up minimal desktop space. You can play music from a mobile device via Bluetooth. Also, there’s a ducking function to automatically reduce the volume as you speak over it.

When connected with the Gigcaster 5 App, it’s possible to trigger sounds. Trigger theme songs, sound effects, sample loops, and backing tracks with touches on the display as you stream. Eight pads and eight pad banks provide a total of 64 on-demand sounds, which you can easily configure and organize into libraries within the app.

Grab-and-Go Control

With the color touch display and intuitive panel controls, you can operate Gigcaster 5 using nothing but the hardware. Mix sources with the faders and mute buttons, view signal levels on screen, quickly access and edit effects, and apply noise suppression, de-essing, and other tools for a polished sound.

Additionally, you can go even further with the Gigcaster 5 App, tweaking various parameters on your computer’s screen as you work.

Customize Your Workflow with GIGCASTER 5

Gigcaster 5 offers many configurable features to suit any streaming style. Eight onscreen effect pads—configured in eight banks—give you 64 command sources for quick sound changes from the touch display. Up to four effects controls can be assigned to each pad, including preset selection, bypass, and more.

It’s also possible to control pad assignments via external footswitches for hands-free access. MIDI over USB is supported as well, providing advanced control of music, video, and streaming applications that respond to MIDI commands.

Pro Recording Partner

Additionally, Gigcaster 5 works as a high-quality 16×12 USB audio interface for recording streams and song productions in a DAW. Capture a live stereo mix in your streaming software for archiving and distribution. Or use Gigcaster 5 and its latency-free effects as a multi-channel front end for recording tracks.
