VS Preamps
QUAD-CAPTURE audio interface boasts two premium-grade, digitally controlled mic preamps (VS Preamps) made from the same high- grade components as the preamps found in Roland's V-Studio 700 and M-400 digital mixer. Two XLR/TRS combo inputs are provided for the preamps, plus independent phantom power, low-cut filter, phase invert, and digital compression for each channel. The VS preamps can be controlled easily and intuitively with the included graphical Control Panel software (Mac/PC).

Never before has it been faster or easier to set perfect 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. Whether you're a beginner or a professional, AUTO-SENS is great for quick, fail-safe recordings, saving you setup time and letting you focus on where it starts... the performance.

VS Streaming
QUAD-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).

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.

Aluminium Build, DI Functionality
QUAD-CAPTURE is small, strong, and housed in a road- tough aluminium body, so you can transport it anywhere with the confidence that its premium internal components are securely protected. For live- concert environments, QUAD- CAPTURE also provides Direct-Box (DI) functionality, essential for noise-free live stage use.

SONAR X1 LE Bundle
Every QUAD-CAPTURE package includes a complimentary copy of SONAR X1 LE software for PC that's designed to work fluidly and seamlessly with the interface. Derived from Cakewalk's award-winning SONAR X1 DAW software, the LE version give you a powerful set of software tools for writing, recording, editing, and mixing your music.

    This is a great little unit with fantastic preamps and lovely looking VU meters! - However it would be a lot better to have phantom power separately selectable on the main inputs, it would also be nice to have a separate clipping indicator on each input channel. My main problem with this device is the fact that there is currently no drivers for a Linux based system, this is normally the case with new products of this kind, but I feel it's about time companies like Roland accommodated users of free and open source software. I have written a letter to Roland expressing this concern, if you feel the same, then I suggest you follow suit - they will never give us what we want if we don't make ourselves heard! All said, this is still a fantastic interface with great quality of sound.
