Sound Blaster R3

Audio Recording Starter Kit for YouTube

Ever wanted a fuss-free, all-in-one home recording solution? Look no further! The Sound Blaster R3 is the perfect YouTube™ starter kit for budding musicians and anyone who wants to have high quality recordings at home. It comes with an advanced recording interface and two high quality microphones for vocals and guitar.


What You Need To Record Your Music, Right Out Of The Box!

The Sound Blaster R3 is a complete starter kit that comes with a dynamic microphone for vocals and a clip microphone for your guitar, and these work seamlessly with the included advanced audio recording interface. Dive into your recordings right away!

Simplify Your Recording Sessions!

The Sound Blaster R3 expands your laptop audio connections to more than one input. Dedicated connections such as the dual microphone input or line-in allows you to sing and play with your favourite guitar tunes simultaneously, as well as plug in other sources of music such as your MP3 player. With the dedicated line-out connection, hook up some powered speakers and play out your latest tracks to your friends, in all its glory.

Sing, Play, or Both. We have you covered.

The Sound Blaster R3 also comes with both a high-quality XLR vocal microphone and a clip-on instrument condenser microphone. The vocal microphone fits into standard microphone stand clips and also features an on-off switch integrated into the microphone.
The instrument microphone has a clip designed to secure to acoustic guitars, but is also suited well for other acoustic instruments.


Fuss-Free Set Up

Unlike some other external recording cards using FireWire, the audio interface in the Sound Blaster R3 utilises simple USB connectivity, which means that PC and Mac users can now enjoy simplified connectivity to desktop and notebooks with a single USB cable. Simply plug it in and you're ready to go.

Recording Outdoors? You Can!

When connected to an external USB battery for use with tablets or mobile phones, the Sound Blaster R3 uses the USB port for power, and the “mobile in” port to handle audio transfer. This means that the Sound Blaster R3 works even when you like outdoor recordings, or when travelling around the world and inspiration hits you!


Real-Time Hardware Monitoring with Reverb

When recording, it's essential to be able to monitor audio in real time. This limits the number of takes needed and also allows creativity to flow much easier.
The Sound Blaster R3 allows for real-time monitoring in hardware with the added bonus of being able to add in and adjust hardware reverb as well. The reverb level that you hear in your monitors is applied to the output stream for a truly “what you hear is what you get” result.

Effortless Reverb Adjustments

The dedicated hardware reverb control knob lets you adjust the level of reverb to dress up your voice for professional recording sessions.

600 Ohm Headphone Amp – For Studio-Grade Monitoring

Tired of having to choose specific headphones impedances to match your setup? The Sound Blaster R3 has a 600 Ohm amplifier, which means you can even use studio-grade headphones to monitor your recording.

Dual Microphone Inputs

The dual microphone input allows you to sing and play with your favourite guitar tunes simultaneously!


Sound Blaster R3 Control Panel

Sound Blaster R3 Control Panel gives you the ability to control and customize every aspect of your recording.

Integrates Into Your Workflow

Do you produce in GarageBand®? Or do you prefer an advanced editor like Logic® or Pro Tools®? There's no problem in either case as the Sound Blaster R3 is designed to integrate into both basic and complex production workflows.

Stereo Mixing Function

Stereo Mixing allows you to record from your microphone, Line, Wave sources – giving you flexibility in various recording set-ups.

No Two Singers Are The Same

Use Mic EQ to custom balance any microphone to your desired settings, from volume to effects.
