Roland intros two USB and one MIDI interface [NAMM11]


Anyone interested in personal audio recording could do worse than take a look at Roland’s latest pair of USB audio interfaces, the TRI-CAPTURE and DUO-CAPTURE.

Whether you want to record vocals, guitar or other types of mobile audio, the TRI-CAPTURE lets you do it. It features a mixer-like design with dedicated front-panel controls allowing for easy mixing, monitoring and controlling of various input signals.

If you’re looking for a decent yet simple USB MIDI interface, the UM-ONE is just that: a single in/out MIDI interface featuring high-performance FPT processing. FPT is a technology that allows for high speed, high resolution MIDI data transmission by a combination of driver and hardware improvements to take advantage of the high-speed extensive transmission capability of USB.

The cables are already integrated, so no searching around for separate cables when you need to plug it in.
