LivePod Plus is a smartphone-sized micro-studio for live streaming
The LivePod Plus Live Streaming Audio Processing Interface from iCON Pro Audio is the world’s first smartphone-sized micro-studio for live streaming and recording.
LivePod Plus brings fun and excitement to content creation by offering real-time vocal processing and sound effects at the touch of a button on a compact, easy-to-use, hand-held portable device.
LivePod Plus is also available as part of the LivePod Plus Live Stream Toolkit (bundled with iCON Pro Audio’s C1 condenser microphone, MB-02 tabletop microphone stand, Scan-7 in-ear monitoring headphones, two tabletop LivePod Plus/smartphone stands, and all necessary cables)
The interface literally fits into the palm of one’s hand while letting you change effects at the touch of a button.
Under the hood lies a custom DSP (Digital Signal Processor) with four 24-bit DSP (Digital Signal Processing) cores and a 16-bit CPU (Central Processing Unit) unleashing advanced digital voice parallel operational processing.
LivePod Plus has some cool features
Other cool features include colour-coded, backlit buttons, instant access to eight DSP-derived presets perfectly suitable for singing and speaking in a variety of styles — namely, the self-explanatory (blue backlit) POP, Karaoke, MC, Live, Bypass, Pitch, Hi Tone, and Lo Tone — with echo adjustment available on select presets.
The three green-coloured backlit buttons positioned above allow Hi (high), Mid, and Low adjustable tone effects to dial in the desired sound, while the adjacent Vocal Tune orange-coloured backlit button automatically shifts vocal pitch to tune it accordingly (with a stick-on ‘template’ to assist).
Elsewhere, eight built-in samples — Fun, Laugh, LOL (laugh out loud), Siren, Thrill, Air-horn, Clap, and Slap, as indicated by the associated emojis on their respective light blue backlit buttons — are always on tap to bring fun and excitement to content creation (and can be added to the streaming audio on the mobile device or through an audio interface and into a computer).
Continuing in a downward direction, the red- coloured row of backlit buttons below those quick-fire sample triggers include Dry Wet — sending signal to the main output without and with effects, respectively — alongside Loop Back and Voice Over controls, the latter ducking audio when background music is present.
Further front facia-sited features include eight-LED (Light Emitting Diode) mic gain level metering and eight-LED line in gain level metering (for the topside-sited 3.5mm stereo line input socket, labelled BGM IN — indicating background music input), while a four-colour LED indicates battery level — clearly crucial for any portable device, hand-held or otherwise.
iCON Pro Audio’s LivePod Plus Live Streaming Audio Processing Interface is available through the company’s global network of distributors, priced at $229.99 USD and the Toolkit version is priced at $349.99 USD.
