Portable audio interface with Roland audio fidelity
The Roland Rubix44 USB Audio Interface is compact yet mighty, with its ultra-portable design meaning you can take your interface wherever you go, perfect for spontaneous recording sessions and more. The studio-grade audio supports resolutions ranging up to 24-bit/192kHz for optimal audio performance and quality. The immense clarity and transparency, the Rubix44 delivers ensures you capture every nuance of your source material as it was intended, ideal for both instruments and vocal recordings.
The four low-noise mic/line preamps feature XLR combo jacks and built-in 48V Phantom Power for connecting condenser microphones for studio-grade recordings. The single Hi-Z instrument input gives you the ability to capture high-level inputs such as electric guitars, meaning you can capture everything you need at any time.
One of the most unique and useful features of the Rubix44 USB Interface is the integrated hardware compressor/limiter. When recording dynamic sources like vocals and percussion, usually the levels may need taming. The built-in dynamic processors ensure a good hot signal without clipping or distortion for optimal audio quality.
The four high-quality microphone preamps are low in noise and deliver the highest definition audio performance for clean and transparent recordings. This is paramount for studio recordings as it ensures a flat and uniformed waveform, which you can edit and manipulate to bring out the best in your audio. The flexible combo jacks on the preamps allows you to connect a wide variety of sources including line instruments such as keyboards.
In addition to the dual microphone preamps, there are also MIDI In/Out ports for connecting MIDI instruments and outputting to external devices such as MIDI interfaces. The Rubix44 USB Audio Interface also provides seamless integration with Mac and PC computers and even features support for iPads, making it one of most versatile audio interfaces on the market.
Ergonomic design, complete with free music software
The ergonomic design of the Rubix44 makes it ideal for quick and easy monitoring, with the big clear level indicators allowing you make precise changes to your levels without having to be close to the interface. The large rotary knobs also allow you to dial in the precise amount of volume for each of your microphone inputs and the Rubix44 interface even features a front-panel headphone output for monitoring your levels privately. The robust construction of the interface ensures optimal sturdiness and durability, with its metal exterior designed for longevity.
The rear of the interface even features a switchable power source, allowing you to choose between USB hub power and 5V DC power for added versatility. Additionally, the Roland Rubix44 comes complete with a copy of Ableton Live Lite, allowing you to start recording, editing and arranging music straight out of the box.
