Braven makes a line of Bluetooth speakers. But in January the company unveiled something a bit different: a Bluetooth portable audio mixer called the Braven Fuse.
It’s a small device that can connect to multiple devices to let you mix audio in real-time.
The Braven Fuse should be available soon for $100, and the portable mixer just passed through the FCC website on its way to store shelves.
Here’s how it works: Pair the Fuse with up to two audio sources (like phones or tablets) and up to two speakers. Then you can use hardware knobs and dials to adjust the tone and volume for each.
You can use the setup to play sounds from multiple devices and use a crossfade bar to make mash-ups on the fly. There’s also a headphone jack and separate headphone controls.
The mixer measures about 5 inches long and includes a 1,200 mAh, 4.44 Wh battery for up to 12 hours of run time.
