Roland Rubix - USB Audio Interface for PC, MAC and I Pad

Roland’s Rubix series is a versatile line of USB audio interfaces that allows the user to record clean and clear audio, even in less-than-ideal environments. Rubix communicates via class-compliant USB and can be tracked on the users’ iPad. That’s because Roland built them to be as mobile as possible. Microphone preamps offers clarity and features such as a ground lift and onboard dynamics processing- on the 24 and 44 only, making it easy to capture high-quality audio.

Low-noise performance from the ground up

When it comes to fighting noise, the Rubix starts off with microphone preamps that go hand in hand with its shielded construction. These passive noise-reduction methods work efficient in most cases, but sometimes bad power can ruin the day. Roland addressed this issue by outfitting the Rubix 44 with a system-wide ground-lift switch, so the user can cut off any hum coming from the power supply. This helps recording engineers for recording live sound.

Onboard dynamics save time and tracks

Seasoned engineer or producer get the best possible sound on the way in and it saves hours of editing when it’s time to mix. One of the easiest ways to improve the incoming audio is by adding a touch of compression on the front side to keep the levels smooth. It usually requires outboard compressors to pull off but Roland equipped the Rubix 24 and 44 with a pair of compressor/limiter circuits for each inputs and it features two gentle compression types plus a more aggressive limiter useful to track live sound, where unexpected spikes can obliterate the audio quality.

Features offer added versatility

Between its class-compliant USB, robust design and low-noise performance options, Roland intended for the Rubix to be a great mobile audio interface that makes it a great addition to the user’s home studio. It comes with Ableton Live Lite, which are both a solid DAW and a powerful songwriting tool. MIDI I/O also adds compatibility with keyboards, controllers and other devices. Selectable headphone output sources let the user create a separate monitor mix for recording, which is a real bonus if you collaborate with other artists. Loopback recording lets you record output sources from your computer which is particularly handy for podcasting and similar applications.
