• GEAR EXPO SUMMER 2022: All the latest gear from NAMM and beyond (opens in a new tab)
NAM 2022: Focusrite wants to talk about its new Vocaster audio interface range, specially designed for podcasting. This includes two devices, both of which promise excellent audio quality and “take the technical hassle out,” allowing you to chat seriously.
Despite their simplicity, Vocaster One and Two (as they are called) also come with podcast-friendly features such as Auto Gain, which will set your levels, and an Enhance function to ensure your voice sounds crystal clear. Three presets are included here to make things even easier.
There’s also a mute button, so you can quickly mute your mic if you need to, and a looping feature that lets you play pre-recorded segments (interviews, jingles, background music, etc.) from your computer.
Speaking of which, the Vocaster Hub companion software lets you setup, record, and mix your show. An additional suite of software, worth over $600, is also included.

There are also Studio editions of both interfaces. Vocaster One Studio adds Focusrite’s Vocaster DM1 dynamic microphone (with integrated grille and pop filter) as well as the HP60v closed studio headphones. The Vocaster Two Studio replaces the DM1 mic with the DM14v dynamic mic, which features an integrated windscreen and shock mount.
Available with a three-year warranty, the Vocaster One and Vocaster Two are now available for £190/$200 and £290/$300 respectively. The Vocaster One and Two Studio packs cost £290/$300 and £470/$500 respectively.
