Blast Mic has 8 points of interaction:
- The onboard Stereo Microphone
- Two microphone inputs
- Line-in input
- LED display
- The red broadcast button
- The cream status button
- Three volume buttons (volume up, down and selection)
- Two headphone out jacks
The onboard stereo microphone features two electret microphones in XY configuration with adjustable gain. When your Blast Mic is on, you can speak directly into the mic.
You can also use the two microphone input jacks with 3-volt phantom power to connect external microphones. This is especially helpful if you choose to use lavalier microphones for multi person conversations. If you are using these inputs, the stereo microphone will be disabled.
Blast Mic also has a line in input, which can be used to connect an external audio source such as a computer to play music with your broadcast.
The red broadcast / power button
Press and hold the red button to turn Blast Mic on and off. If you’ve already set up, press the red button to start and stop a broadcast.
The status button
Press the cream button to toggle between battery, wifi, your profile name, and the time code screen. You can also use this button to toggle between volume controls for the different inputs and headphone outputs.
Long hold this button to enable ducking, which unmutes the on board microphone and reduces volume of line-level input to enable speaking over background music.
The volume buttons
These buttons control the microphone gain on the two external mic inputs, the headphone volume for those two outputs, and the internal stereo microphone.
The cream volume button (in the middle of up&down volume buttons)
The volume button in the middle toggles between the two outputs and the stereo microphone.
When you are live the LED screen will show how long you’ve been broadcasting, how many people are tuning in, and your audio levels. Whenever listeners send you vibes and whenever you get a new listener, the screen will glow red.
Two headphone out jacks
The two headphone output ports have with separate volume control for each and outputt 98dB SNR, 124mW.
