STOP PRESS! As Perry White or one of those folks might say… The Roland Rubix22, Rubix24 and Rubix44 USB audio interfaces have been announced.
Now there are a good few USB audio interfaces around these days – you may have noticed – but there are some nice features in these ones that make them a bit more worthwhile of your time.
Meet the Roland Rubix22, Roland Rubix24 and Roland Rubix44
So, let’s see what we’ve got. You’ve got support for recording up to 24-bit, 192 kHz audio, nicely neutral, transparent preamps – always nice to be able to record clean and add the character you need later – and the bright, obvious level meter means it’s easy to get the right amount of gain dialled in.
The metal casing keeps things rugged and portable and it works on Mac, Windows PC and iPad. Ableton Live Lite is included, so you can be making tunes straight out of the box!
The Roland Rubix range should be with us in March/April time.
The Roland GO:MIXER
Or the Roland Go Mixer, if you prefer. A handy little thing this one for those of you who make a few videos. The Roland GoMixer (in case you prefer that) is the perfect little device if you need to record multiple sound sources when making smartphone videos.
It’s the size of the average palm (probably, I’ll admit I don’t have those figures to hand), it’s powered by your phone, and you can connect a microphone, a guitar or bass, keyboards, synths or other instruments, and another device such as an mp3 player.
If you’re recording some demo videos for YouTube and need to mix your commentary with your playing to save time in post-production.
Nice one. And March/April time again for this one.
