Roland has announced the Duo-Capture EX USB Audio Interface, the latest member of its Capture family of products for computer-based recording.
A Roland spokesperson told Sonic State, "Equipped with pro-quality VS Preamps, flexible mobile power options, iPad compatibility, and a compact, rugged design, the brings an all-new level of performance in an affordable portable audio interface."
Here's more details in Roland's own words...
The DUO-CAPTURE EX is a two-in/two-out USB audio/MIDI interface housed in a road-tough and lightweight aluminum chassis. Small and durable, it works great for any application, from home studios to portable laptop or iPad recording setups. For the ultimate in mobile convenience, the DUO-CAPTURE EX can be powered either through a computer's USB bus, with three AA batteries, or an optional AC adaptor.
Two VS Preamps onboard the DUO-CAPTURE EX deliver unmatched performance in this price class. Made with the same premium components as the preamps found in Roland's OCTA-CAPTUREā„¢ and QUAD-CAPTURE interfaces and M-400 commercial digital mixer, these high-grade mic preamps offer super-clean, transparent sound rivaling devices costing much more.
A three-way power supply, including USB bus power, battery power and an optional AC adaptor, is also provided with the DUO-CAPTURE, offering a wide-range, low-noise power supply, and clean, reliable power performance meeting the demands of any professional recording situation. When driven by a computer's USB bus power supply, the DUO-CAPTURE EX internally regenerates the incoming power, ensuring the ideal voltage for optimal sound quality and efficiency in mobile environments.
Audio inputs are provided on the front panel via two combo jacks, which accommodate either XLR or 1/4-inch TRS connectors. Phantom power for condenser mics is available on both XLR ins, and one 1/4-inch jack can be set for Hi-Z operation for connecting a guitar or bass directly. Other front panel features include input sensitivity knobs (with peak indicator), a volume level knob, and a PHONES jack.
The DUO-CAPTURE EX's rear panel offers balanced or unbalanced audio output on two 1/4-inch TRS jacks. MIDI I/O allows users to interface with MIDI keyboards, V-Drums, and other electronic musical instruments. Switches are provided for phantom power, Hi-Z operation, and Direct Monitoring from the audio input in stereo or mono. Rounding out the rear panel are USB and DC IN jacks.
The DUO-CAPTURE EX is also three-OS supported, including WDM/ASIO (Windows), Core Audio (Mac) and with Mac and iOS music apps on the iPad via Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit (battery or AC power is required when connected to an iPad.) SONAR X1 LE DAW software is bundled with the interface, giving Windows users a ready-to-go music production environment out of the box.
