Inspired by our earliest work with competitive gaming teams, ASTRO Gaming created the MixAmp to give professional gamers the audio control they demanded. The original MixAmp was the first device to combine game sound and voice chat, giving gamers the ability to quickly and easily adjust balance on-the-fly with a single control. By daisy-chaining MixAmps together, pro gamers could create a lag-free private voice network, allowing them to communicate much more clearly and effectively than before. And we gave tournament organizers the ability to output the entire team’s voice chat into their livestreams, allowing spectators to better understand team strategies and helping to personalize the competitors. The eSports scene has grown dramatically in the 7 years since our original MixAmp, so we are introducing a new update, the MixAmp Pro TR, to adapt to any environment and improve functionality for livestreamers and tournament organizers.
The MixAmp Pro TR is re-engineered with all digital components for lag-free and interference-free operation, and the ASTRO Command Center software allows for tuning of every input and output parameter. All TR products are the Official Equipment of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
Compatibility: Xbox One (white) and PS4 (black) specific editions. Xbox One version no longer requires an additional cable for voice chat. Both Xbox One and PS4 editions enumerate as a full USB soundcard on PC and Mac. Game:Voice Balancing now works on PC just like it does on console and easily adjusts how much game audio and voice chat players hear.
Software: ASTRO Command Center software allows for the tuning of every input and output level and other detailed settings to optimize the experience for any environment. All 4 EQ presets can be customized saved and shared. Sidetone level, which is the technical term for “how you hear yourself in the headset” can now be adjusted. Turn it up and it will prevent you from yelling during loud gun battles. Turn it down to prevent crowd noise from entering the headset in loud tournament environments. Customizable Stream Output allows full control over what your audience hears and allows audio to be streamed, recorded and shared. Stream output can be configured to output 2-channel Dolby Headphone Surround encoded game sound. Supports firmware updates for feature additions and bug fixes.
Hardware: All digital circuitry for interference free gaming and >1ms delay time. Digital Daisy chaining via firewire connection for completely lag-free local voice comms. AUX input now allows for in and out, so you can answer calls all while in a gaming session. Works with every ASTRO A40 and A30 headset ever produced.
