The Quad Capture USB audio interface makes it easy to set input levels. Simply activate the AUTO-SENS feature with the push of a button, play your connected instruments, and Quad Capture automatically sets the ideal recording level for each input.

Low-Noise Power Supply
One of Quad Capture's key 'behind-the-scenes' features is its low-noise, wide-ranging power supply. Designed to deliver a clean, balanced input and output, it provides a reliable foundation for any professional audio application or environment. When driven by the USB bus power supply, Quad Capture's power is regenerated, providing the analog circuitry ideal voltage for the very best sound quality and efficiency in mobile environments.
Aluminum Build, DI Functionality
Quad Capture is small, strong, and housed in a road-tough aluminum body, so you can transport it anywhere with the confidence that its premium internal components are securely protected. For live-concert environments, Roland Quad Capture also provides Direct-Box (DI) functionality, essential for noise-free live stage use.
