Flagship 16x10 interface with 12 premium mic preamps.

With the new STUDIO-CAPTURE, Roland once again raises the performance standard for computer-based audio production. The latest addition to the acclaimed CAPTURE family boasts 12 premium-grade mic preamps, an industry first for a compact USB audio interface. A total of 16 audio inputs, 10 audio outputs, and MIDI I/O offers massive connectivity for pro-level setups, all in a single, tabletop unit that fits easily into a travel bag. Other top-flight features include 24-bit/192 kHz audio quality, comprehensive front-panel metering, XLR monitor outputs with dedicated level control, dual headphone outputs, rock-solid drivers with VS STREAMING technology, and much more. Durable, portable, and ready to take on large-scale recording projects both in the studio and on the road, STUDIO-CAPTURE stands head and shoulders above all other USB audio interfaces on the market.


TOP QUALITY FOR MODERN AUDIO PRODUCTION

Combining pro-level audio performance, abundant I/O, and a versatile mobile design, STUDIO-CAPTURE is a powerful solution for today’s musicians, composers, and recording engineers. It delivers quality equivalent to dedicated rackmount audio interfaces costing much more, all in a compact, go-everywhere package that’s equally suited for traveling production, tabletop use in home studios, or permanent installation in commercial studios 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 synthesizers 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

Among its many standout features, STUDIO-CAPTURE offers 12 digitally controlled mic preamps (VS PREAMPS), built with premium-grade components for 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

STUDIO-CAPTURE is equipped with a total of 16 input channels and 10 output channels. With the versatile, space-saving combo jacks, each of the 12 XLR mic inputs can alternately be used as a balanced/unbalanced ¼-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. STUDIO-CAPTURE also features MIDI I/O, with Roland’s proprietary FPT processing for superior high-speed performance.

HIGH-PERFORMANCE VS STREAMING TECHNOLOGY

STUDIO-CAPTURE 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, 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.

        Comments about Roland STUDIO-CAPTURE USB 2.0 Audio Interface:

        Can only use 96 Khz when using all channels. Has limited digital in/out options. The auto configuration device is very good, sometimes it don't get the bass guitar loud enough in my opinion. You can make compression and rev adjustments pretty good but I don't think you can save settings as preset. Super clear sound but most of all - Drivers have NOT CRASHED...EVER. Amazing. I run windows 7.

            Comments about Roland STUDIO-CAPTURE USB 2.0 Audio Interface:

            I have owned the Studio Capture a little over a week, and am already thoroughly impressed with its features and ease of use. The last audio interface I bought (6 years ago?) was an Mbox 2, which is a USB 1 device, and limited to recording two analog inputs simultaneously. I used the Mbox with the light version of Pro Tools that came bundled with it. I had a top of the line laptop (for that time) but was severely limited in what I could produce.

            Perhaps that experience tarnished my expectations, but when I decided to refresh my home recording gear with Pro Tools 11 and the Roland Studio Capture, I had no idea how far home recording has come. Yesterday, I tracked 12 analog inputs simultaneously on the Studio Capture with my four piece band, which yielded incredible recordings, even before I added a single effect or equalization. With a little tweaking, this little (and it is indeed more compact than the pictures suggest) device is well on its way to providing our band with superb demo recordings. For the price, the Studio Capture can't be beat.

              First unit had a high pitch ringing sound on outputs 1/2 even when disconnected from PC.
              Exchanged unit works perfectly. Great Pre's and the auto sensing inputs are a real time saver.
