    Product Description

    Combining ten inputs, ten outputs, and eight microphone VS Preamps with transparent 24-bit/192 kHz audio quality, the Roland Octa Capture sets a new standard for portable USB 2.0 audio interfaces. High-level audio production comes easy with this fusion of premium components, Roland-quality engineering, and proprietary preamp and streaming technology. Octa Capture is not only the perfect interface for multi-channel computer-based production, but also a great solution for expanding the I/O capability of the V-Studio 700 and V-Studio 100. Brimming with quality and performance seldom seen in its price range, Octa Capture is the next-generation audio interface.

    Roland Octa Capture USB Audio Interface Features

    • Eight premium mic preamps built in (VS PREAMP)
    • Auto-Sens function intelligently sets optimal input levels for all preamps
    • Extremely stable low-latency VS Streaming driver
    • Four independent software-controlled Direct Mixers for creating custom monitor mixes
    • Supports all major DAW platforms on Mac or PC, including OSX 10.6 and Windows 7, through ASIO 2.0/WDM (Windows) and Core Audio (Mac) drivers
    • Rackmount ears included
    • Bundled with Ableton Live Lite
    Eight Premium Mic Preamps
    Octa Capture boasts eight premium-grade digitally controlled mic preamps (VS PREAMPS), built with the same high-grade components as the preamps in the V-Studio 700 and M-400 V-Mixer. Eight XLR inputs are provided for the preamps, plus independent phantom power, low-cut filter, phase invert, and digital compression for each channel.

    Auto Input Level Adjustment
    Never before has it been this fast and easy to set perfect input levels — simply activate the Auto-Sens feature with the push of a button, play your connected instruments, and Octa Capture automatically sets the ideal recording level for each input. It’s great for quick, fail-safe audio capture when recording either a fully mic’d drum kit or an entire band.

    Extreme Low-Latency Driver
    Octa Capture offers incredible stability and industry-leading low-latency USB performance via Roland’s proprietary VS Streaming technology. All current Mac and PC DAW platforms are supported through ASIO 2.0/WDM (Windows) and Core Audio (Mac) drivers. Thanks to VS Streaming, you can use multiple devices (two Octa Capture units or one Octa Capture plus a V-Studio 100 or V-Studio 700) on the same USB bus without compromising stability, performance, or audio quality.

    Four Flexible Monitor Mixes
    Beyond traditional audio interfacing, Octa Capture offers four independent Direct Mixers for creating software-controlled monitor mixes. Each mix can be routed to any of the analog outputs and can take advantage of the internal 40-bit DSP processing — perfect for sending custom monitor mixes to headphones, speakers, or recording devices.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    Just bought this interface to use with Pro Tools 10 on my PC. Flawless compatibility and amazingly intuitive, with exceptional quality. Buy this for the Auto Sense feature alone, it will save you tons of time! The preamps and all the other features are great as well, but I know most prefer to use externals. This works great with my Pro Tools 10 on my PC Dell laptop...I know this info will be helpful for people looking for specifics. Best price I found (by $100) was here on A.M.S. for $499.00. Buy it with confidence and go make some music!
