8 programmable SMART pads
Instead of the sound pads of the original model, the RODECaster Pro II has programmable SMART pads. Each SMART pad can trigger audio files, trigger special effects, send MIDI commands to software or hardware, or perform mixer functions such as fades, music ducking, and bleeping.
Bank shift buttons at the bottom of the pads provide easy access to eight banks for a total of 64 unique actions.
Select the color for the pad lighting yourself, a handy way to remember which effect is on which pad.
Customizable Multi-Channel Mixer
The 9-channel mixer features 6 channels with full-size physical faders and three virtual channels, with the option to expand through digital hosting and hardware integrations with future updates.
Physical faders and virtual channels can be freely assigned to the four analog inputs, USB and Bluetooth interfaces and SMART pads.
Each channel offers a pan control, mute button and listen button (pre- or after-fader solo). Color coding for each channel on the RODECaster Pro II allows you to quickly identify the different sources.
