Eight premium mic preamps, compact I/O, pristine sound quality

Combining ten inputs, ten outputs, and eight 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 is made possible with this fusion of premium components, Roland-quality engineering, and proprietary preamp and streaming technology. OCTA-CAPTURE is not only a great interface for multi-channel computer-based production, but also a perfect solution for expanding the I/O capability of the V-STUDIO™ 700 and V-STUDIO™ 100.

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
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 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
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.

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

      Comments about Roland Octa-Capture 10X10 USB Audio Interface:

      I got the OctaCapture to add more channels to my existing rig, and it exceeded my expectations.

      It sounds better than my Steinberg MR816 but can't touch my Metric Halo ULN-8. It is easier to navigate and set the input channel (which is fully featured) than either of the other two, which is impressive given the tiny size of the unit. While I might've expected the Roland to be delicate due to its size, it is actually bordering on ruggedness.

      The combo xlr/line/instrument inputs are so user friendly, they should be on all interfaces. The display window, while small, is backlit, easily understood and well thought-out for each function or page being viewed. Getting to those pages is quite easy (one or two button pushes, usually).

      Back to the sound quality. It's clearer than the Steinberg and more open, while at the same being a little bit silky, which I think is due to the preamps. It is borderline good enough to be used professionally and if you wanted to use it for paid studio work, I don't think most people would argue or complain when they heard the result.

      For the money, I don't feel the need to look elsewhere. Other comparable units in the price range might be its equal or possibly better, but I don't think this unit leaves anything to be desired.

        Comments about Roland Octa-Capture 10X10 USB Audio Interface:

        I did quit a bit of research on this item and found a lot of information and good ratings. Although it does come with Sonar LE DAW and the drivers I downloaded the latest drivers from Roland and I all ready had SONAR X1 installed in my PC. The SONAR products interfaces nicely.

        Unless you are familiar with this product or one like it, it really does pay off to read the Octa-Capture manual and Readme Files. Note: unless your USB 3.0 is backward compatible to 2.0 the Readme file says it might not work. Also, study your DAW software interface and the hardware interfaces you will be using. Once I figured everything out, this unit worked nice using the Audio recording, playback and MIDI interfaces.

        Again if this is your first time with this kind of Audio Capturing it can be kind of overwhelming but worth every minute of ramp up learning. Just keep hacking at it. The Octa-Capture and SONAR DAW interfaces work well together.

        NO, this does NOT have the features of a unit costing more than 4 times the cost however, so far the Octa-Capture is worth every bit I paid for it.

        I wish I had these tools when I was younger and more serous in "MAKING IT". Now, I am considered a senior citizen.

        My wife has to pry me out of my Home Studio. I think she's jealous because I'm having too much fun.

        Comments about Roland Octa-Capture 10X10 USB Audio Interface:

        I've owned the Octa-Capture for about eight months now, and I love it. The reason I purchased it was that I run Cakewalk's Sonar X2, and seeing as Roland is a part of Cakewalk, they are pretty much made for each other.

        Right out of the box, the drivers were easy to install, and I was up and running in about 20 minutes total from the time I hooked it up. Seems to be solidly made. Thankfully, I haven't dropped it yet to find out.

        The auto-sens feature is a really nice touch. Once you have all your mics hooked up, press the auto-sens button and play away for a bit, and the octa-capture automatically sets your input levels.

        Bottom line is that I am very happy I bought the Octa-Capture. I'm currently planning to add a second one to piggyback onto it, so that I can run a full 16 tracks simultaneously.

        Comments about Roland Octa-Capture 10X10 USB Audio Interface:

        The Octa Capture does what it is marketed to do.
        Easy install, quiet interface.
        Very low latency.
        Solid built.
        Tons of ins and outs.
        Super easy
        Low learnign curve.
        Right size for desktop and travel although not an entry level device.
        This unit is pretty straight forward. Nvrer owned another one so this is my first time. What I liked was simplicity. So far I have barley looked at the manual. After the driver download its just pretty much tun it on and plug stuff in.

        Bottom line is it works well and is quient and stable
        Quality seems rock solid like most other Roland products I own. I am not concerned with Quality issues. This one was built in Japan, another reason I chose this product.

        Must Buy!!

        By trscustom

        from Toronto, Ontario

        Comments about Roland Octa-Capture 10X10 USB Audio Interface:

        I bought the Roland Octa-Capture with some hesitation as there isn't a tonne of info on it yet. But its fantastic!My band was doing preproduction recordings the other day for our producer. In order to record all we had to do was 1) plug it into our DAW (macbook pro with Logic) 2) Plug everyone into the octa-capture3) Hit the AUTO-SENS button4) RecordThe recording came out with perfect levels for all instruments! That is a drumset, guitar, bass, keys, vox, and a bari sax.
