SteelSeries unveiled its latest innovation in gaming audio at the Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit (ESGS) 2023 in Pasay City, Philippines. The Alias series of microphones, powered by Sonar for Streamers, is the first microphone solution that has been designed specifically for gamers and streamers who want to sound like professionals.
The Alias microphones feature a custom-built 1-inch condenser capsule that captures every detail of the user’s voice with extreme accuracy, while a finely tuned cardioid capsule pattern minimizes background noise.
The microphones also come with a custom-built shock mount that absorbs vibrations and allows users to move around and get animated during their streams. The microphones have a sleek and streamlined chassis that is compatible with standard video broadcasting software.
To complement the Alias microphones, SteelSeries has developed Sonar for Streamers, a free studio-grade software suite that provides users with an all-in-one sound studio. Sonar for Streamers offers features such as an independent 10-band Parametric EQ, ClearCast AI noise cancellation, Compressor and Limiter, and Drag ‘n’ Drop Audio Routing. It also supports dual PC streaming for content creators who want to use two USB ports for audio input and output.
The Alias series of microphones powered by Sonar for Streamers are available in two options: Alias and Alias Pro.
The Alias is a 24bit/48kHz broadcast-quality USB microphone that has a 5-stage LED indicator, real-time mic monitoring, a built-in RGB downlight, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The Alias Pro is a 24bit/48kHz broadcast-quality XLR microphone that comes with an XLR Stream Mixer, a professional-level command station that allows users to mix up to five audio channels and adjust them individually. The XLR Stream Mixer also has custom-designed LED indicators, ambient RGB lighting, and customizable dial and button assignments.
The Alias and Alias Pro microphones powered by Sonar for Streamers are available at SteelSeries.com and retailers around the world for ₱11,100 and ₱19,555, respectively. Sonar for Streamers can be downloaded for free at SteelSeries.com/gg/sonar-for-streamers.
