Almost perfect, but lacking a few small things
Dyils.TV, 07.09.2020
It's a great replacement for my software processing. I used to use:
1. Voicemeeter Banana for routing my audio
2. Cantabile with Reaper plugins for microphone audio processing in real time
3. Equalizer APO for Equalization on my headphones.
4. A small AMP for my headphones
5. StreamDeck with Voicemeeter plugin for audio routing changes

I have managed to replace 4 of 5 of those things with the GoXLR mini
1. The routing table in GoXLR mini allows a lot of flexibility in routing audio to wherever I want
2. Built-in microphone processing with EQ, Noise Gate and Compression
4. Provides quite a decent amount of power and sounds quite nice. I no longer use my AMP, even though I've heard there's a way to connect it and use it together with the GoXLR.
5. StreamDeck with GoXLR plugin for easy audio routing changes

So overall, this has already been fantastic, it gives so much control at your fingertips, especially if you combine this with a StreamDeck, because it has a plugin for it where you can control either the Routing Table by itself or switch between different profiles you create in the GoXLR app itself if you want to change more than just the Routing Table.

There are several cons however:
1. Audio Routing - the routing table is great, but I would have liked to see at least one more output for speakers. We currently have Headphone Out and Line Out. That's enough for headphones and speakers if you do not have a second (streaming) PC. If you do, you have to use the Line Out for the second PC instead of speakers and then you have nowhere to connect your speakers and you can't switch to them with the press of a button any more. I feel like this is a common need for people who don't want to wear headphones 100% of the time. It's potentially doable if you have 2 GoXLRs and connect them to each other via Line In / Out and connect each via USB to each computer.

2. Very small con but microphone processing lacks a de-esser on the mini version, just because for some reason they decided to make this bus powered (i.e. usb powered) instead of having a separate brick for powering it. I am not sure why though, such a powerful and flexible device, who would complain if you had to power it separately? Just get an extension and problem solved. The de-esser would have been nice but this is a very small con.

3. Neither GoXLR version has any EQ on outputs! - this is a big con for me and I would like to see EQ on outputs, not just on the microphone in future versions of this product. There are 2 alternatives currently - if you use the Sampler channel that is detected in Windows to send your music with EQ to it. Then you use the Music channel to send your music without EQ to it. You can route the Music channel to the stream and the Sampler channel to yourself so only your music is EQed but not the stream's EQ. The 2nd alternative is to just send EQed music to your stream and then apply an equal and opposite EQ on the stream to cancel it out. So one EQ on your music with Equalizer APO and another opposite EQ in OBS to cancel it out for the stream.

4. The StreamDeck plugin keeps breaking constantly - if you are using this, make sure you find a version of stream deck and the GoXLR plugin that works for you and then make sure you do not update it! Every other update breaks the plugin and makes it unusable. It's incredibly frustrating.

Amazing mixer for the price
Diego Mauricio, 26.11.2020
Decided to buy this mixer to go with my Røde Podmic and it has been amazing so far, it's powerful enough so I do not need a cloudlifter.
I like that I can play with the settings and I get to sound just like I want to, there are also a lot of videos how to use them, definitely easier than it looks. The only downside I have so far is that the mixer doesn't turn off when you shutdown your pc, so all the lights are still ON and the only fix so far is to change it to Sleep mode before shutting down your PC.

Great product!
Picky, 17.11.2020
I ordered this product because I wanted to be able to quickly control the volume of the microphone, chat and music. I use it mainly to stream on twitch but also to control everything related to PC audio. A product that does exactly what was created for. Also this product is used together with a stream deck. The possibility of this pair is unlimited. Thank you for a awesome experience.

Due to the fact that thomann uses high quality boxes when the products are shipped, my package arrived safe in Romania. Awesome job thomann!

Really like it
11happy, 13.11.2020
easy to set up, just watch a video on youtube and its all done.
for the one that wonders if u need a cloudlifter for shure sm 7b and this go xlr, the answer goes both ways. It provides enough power so if u max it out, it will clip (arround 59 gain with no compression, is enough, keep in mind 72 is max posibile), but if u want a clean sound with no noise on background, u need a CL, because than u can lower gain on go xlr. Really like it c`ose it has EQ and Compressor and u can easely use zoom with it, to broadcast music and use ur mic, or stream with it or whatever you do. Happy holidays !!

Only option worth buying under $400
Taylor., 26.11.2020
It works great. It's amazing how easy it is to setup. Although I wished it had one more volume slider and that the *bleep*-button was customizable; it is without a doubt the most complete usb soundcard in its price range.

Bought this for streaming and found it to be amazing. Paired with rode procaster and it was an amazing combo. Loving it so far, so many features at your finger tips I was really surprised by this little hardware. So happy to ditch adobe audition and voicemeter don't even need it with this little thing. Hosnestly if you have a little extra cash laying around this will for sure make you life easier. Recommend.

Great mixer with a one aesthetic issue
Smurphy89, 12.09.2020
I've found the GoXLR Mini to be a fantastic mixer for livestreaming on Twitch, as it gives me the ability to adjust sound levels on the fly, without having to dive into individual apps (games, Discord, Twitch alerts etc) to change volume levels. However, one thing that gets on my nerves is the fact that the sliders have printed names above them. I wish these were little LED screens so you can change text. My slider marked 'Music' for example is used for game sounds rather than music. I wish it could be changed to say 'game sounds'. But this is very minor. All in all though everything is built very well, slliders are smooth and the ability to measure volumes using the onboard LED equiliser is great. For those wanting a little more control over your streams, but don't want to spend the cash on the full sized GoXLR, then the Mini is definitely one to get.

Good product but lacks in a few small areas.
OzymaticTV, 05.09.2020
Build quality is okay, nothing special but solid enough.

lacks a few vital features
1) dedicated monitor headphone volume, you either dedicate and solider to headphone volume or use the software to change it.
2) software support is limited, updates and infrequent and honestly support is impossible to contact.
3) doesn't shutdown with the PC (stays lit up) unless you make some BIOS changes

positives
1) great sound
2) nothing compares on the market
3) mixer really helps to keep a 2 pc setup simple

JoshuaP, 20.10.2020
If you're looking for a simple, feature packed interface to process your audio for a livestream, or even if you're a casual gamer. This has made things a breeze to set up. It's got everything you'd need to get what you need out of your microphone.
