Following on from the introduction of the Duo-Capture and Tri-Capture at NAMM, Roland has announced QUAD-CAPTURE, which they describe as an ultra-compact 4-input/4-output USB 2.0 Audio Interface for computer-based audio recording. Here's their press release with the full details...
Designed for pro-quality audio capture at home or on the go, QUAD-CAPTURE boasts two premium microphone preamps, ultra-low latency operation at rates up to 24-bit/192 kHz, digital I/O, and MIDI in a portable package that runs on USB bus power.
QUAD-CAPTURE's two digitally controlled VS Preamps provide performance that rivals devices costing much more. Based on the microphone preamps found in Roland's flagship V-Studio 700 and M-400 V-Mixer, VS Preamps are built with premium components for clean, transparent audio with a superior signal-to-noise ratio. Each channel features selectable low-cut filter, phase invert, and digital compression, all of which are accessible through an easy-to-use software control panel.
The convenient front-panel combo jacks accommodate XLR or _-inch connectors, with a selectable Hi-Z instrument input on channel 1. Additional connectivity includes two _-inch TRS output jacks, coaxial digital audio I/O, MIDI I/O, and a headphone jack. Besides providing mobile recording convenience, QUAD-CAPTURE's USB bus power circuitry features a special design that provides the interface's analog components optimal voltage for pristine sound quality.
The unique AUTO-SENS function makes it easy for users to set the preamps' input levels--a simple button press is all it takes to set the optimum levels for any sound source. QUAD-CAPTURE also features a Direct Monitor function with a handy front-panel balance knob for monitoring input sources while overdubbing.
Roland's VS Streaming driver offers the latest technology for powerful low-latency performance and unprecedented stability. All popular DAW platforms are supported via ASIO 2.0/WDM (Windows) and Core Audio (Mac) driver versions. The VS Streaming driver is compatible with the very latest computer operating systems, including Windows 7 and Mac OS X 10.6.
Super-compact and durable, QUAD-CAPTURE is perfect for grab-and-go recording with a laptop, and it excels as a small desktop interface as well. Bundled with QUAD-CAPTURE is SONAR X1 LE, Cakewalk's award-winning DAW software.
