Top Quality for Modern Audio Production
The Studio Capture delivers quality equivalent to dedicated rackmount audio interfaces costing much more. Permanent installation is possible with the included rack ears. The 16 audio inputs, 12 mic preamps, and flexible monitor mixing allow you to track most bands without adding any additional hardware, or simultaneously connect multiple synths and other devices in large-scale composing setups. To take on really big projects, you can seamlessly expand your I/O to 32 inputs and 24 mic preamps simply by adding a second Studio Capture.

12 Premium Mic Preamps
12 digitally controlled mic preamps (VS PREAMPS), built with premium-grade components offer exceptional low-noise performance, high headroom, and transparent sound quality. 12 XLR/TRS combo inputs are provided for the preamps, with four inputs conveniently located on the front panel for quick and easy access. Available on each channel is independent phantom power, a low-cut filter, phase invert, and digital compression, accessible via the included software control panel.

Generous and Flexible I/O
Roland Studio Capture is equipped with a total of 16 input channels and 10 output channels. With the versatile combo jacks, each of the 12 XLR mic inputs can alternately be used as a balanced/unbalanced 1/4-inch line input, while inputs 13-16 have their own dedicated rear-panel TRS jacks. Inputs 1 and 2 can be switched to Hi-Z operation for connecting guitars and basses directly, while inputs 15/16 can be assigned to the coaxial digital input.

Eight analog outputs are provided on TRS jacks, with the main stereo outputs mirrored on XLR jacks. Two additional outputs (9/10) are available via a coaxial digital jack. Roland Studio Capture also features MIDI I/O, with Roland’s proprietary FPT processing for superior high-speed performance.

High-Performance VS STREAMING Technology
The Studio Capture interface offers high-resolution, 24-bit recording at rates up to 192 kHz, with incredible stability and industry-leading low-latency USB performance provided by 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 expand your I/O by using two Studio Captures on the same USB bus without compromising stability or audio quality.

AUTO-SENS: Perfect Levels at the Touch of a Button
Unique to Roland’s Capture family is the innovative AUTO-SENS feature, which makes it fast and easy to set perfect input levels every time. Just press the dedicated front-panel button, play your connected instruments, and Studio Capture automatically sets the ideal recording level for each input in seconds. Useful for pros and beginners alike, AUTO-SENS is great for quick, fail-safe audio capture when recording a fully mic’d drum kit or an entire band.

Comprehensive Monitoring and Metering
Bright, responsive LED meters let you keep an eye on levels for individual input and output channels and the MONITOR OUT, while dedicated input channel buttons and other intuitive controls make it easy to navigate the built-in display. The MONITOR OUT section features a dedicated LEVEL knob for control room volume, plus a DIRECT MONITOR knob for listening to selected input signals. Two headphone jacks—each with their own level knob—allow a musician and engineer to monitor at the same time without additional hardware.

Flexible Monitor Mixing with Effects
Beyond traditional audio interfacing, Roland Studio Capture offers four independent Direct Mixers for zero-latency monitoring, operated via the software control panel. Powered by Studio Capture’s internal DSP, each mix can be routed to any of the outputs, perfect for sending custom monitor mixes to headphones, speakers, or recording devices. Mix configurations can be saved for later use, providing quick setups for many different applications. A high-quality reverb processor is available for monitoring, allowing singers and instrumentalists to record dry tracks while listening to great-sounding ambience effects.

Incredible audio interface

Product Review

I had a focusrite Safire pro 40 for years that worked great until the FireWire interface on the computer gave out. Decided to update and try something new. This unit is incredibly easy to setup and has worked flawlessly for me since it’s installation. I use a windows 10 desktop with studio one, mpc touch and multiple keyboards. The unit has never crashed (knock on wood) in the 4 months that I’ve owned it. The audio is loud and super clear. If you’re looking for a great audio interface with a ton of inputs, look no further.

A Wise Choice Over Traditional Mixers

Product Review

This mixer plugs all my equipment to my monitors with a full sound. This comes with a small amount of waiting for parameter to take effect at times. However, the controls affect the sound a great deal every time adjusted. This mixer sounds wonderful!

High Quality / Low Latency

Product Review

Very good product, but not simple straight out of the box.

As with all Roland products, the user's manual is fairly useless, so it takes time to find your way around this unit. If you can invest the time to learn how to fully use this, it's a heck of an interface.

Extremely low latency, and quality of sound with this interface.

This interface has many options that others on the USB 2.0 don't offer. Again, learning how they work and using them is the key.
