With a pair of premium VS Preamps onboard, plus superb 24-bit/192 kHz audio quality, ultra-low latency performance, and convenient USB bus power, QUAD-CAPTURE sets a new standard for portable USB 2.0 audio interfaces. Its compact, durable design and pristine sound makes it the perfect foundation for portable, multichannel computer-based productions on the go. With quality and performance that far exceeds its size and price, QUAD-CAPTURE stands at the head of its class.

VS Preamps
QUAD-CAPTURE 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.

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, QUAD-CAPTURE also provides Direct-Box (DI) functionality, essential for noise-free live stage use.

Pro performance for portable production.

  • 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.
  • Two combo XLR/TRS inputs with premium mic preamps (VS Preamps), two TRS outputs, coaxial I/O, headphone out, and MIDI I/O
  • Graphical Control Panel software provides fast, intuitive control of the VS Preamps
  • Phantom power, ground lift, and Hi-Z switches
  • One-click AUTO-SENS function intelligently sets optimal input levels for the preamps
  • Extreme low-latency VS Streaming driver
  • Low-noise, wide-range power supply
  • Compact with durable aluminum body and Direct Box functionality
  • Bundled with Cakewalk SONAR X1 LE

With quality and performance that far exceeds its size and price!

Don't be fooled.

Comments about Roland Quad Capture USB 2.0 Audio Interface:

Musician's Friend promises a Cakewalk Sonar DAW software to accompany the Quad Capture , which is a very good product. However, they sent Ableton Live 9 LE and when asked about it they said if you don't like it, return everything. Called Roland. They haven't packaged Sonar with the interface in years and they deny any responsibility for MF posting a misleading description. Roland promised to contact MF and tell them to fix their website on this matter. We'll see.

Comments about Roland Quad Capture USB 2.0 Audio Interface:

Very clear, full sound with reasonable gain. Auto gain/sens button is handy for recording in stereo. Sounds better than focusrite and presonus units and seems better built.

    Comments about Roland Quad Capture USB 2.0 Audio Interface:

    I bought this when it went on sale. I'd been eyeing them for a while. I own a Roland VS700- the premier interface from Roland that cost over 3K when they came out. I was looking for a 'good' interface that was portable so I could do editing outside the dark studio- especially when the weather got nice in the spring and fall. Well, it just so happens my projects over the last few years have been recorded at 88.2 and this inteface doesn't support it. ...kinda goofy I think. So while I don't mind recording at 96K in future, the present projects wont play on this interface- bummer. Otherwise, it seems pretty nice and I'm not gonna diss it because I didn't do my homework.
