Roland Introduces Rubix Audio Interfaces

Roland has announced Rubix, a new line of audio interfaces for Mac, PC and iPads.

Roland said Rubix is designed to offer a balanced combination of high-fidelity sound, solid all-metal build quality, compact size, affordable price and crucial features for audio producers.

The Rubix audio interface line consists of the Rubix22, 24 and 44. Each multi-platform interface is engineered to have extremely low noise from input to output. Clean, detailed sound is the top priority, with transparent, low-noise mic preamps and support for audio resolutions up to 24-bit/192kHz.

Visible indicators clearly show the presence of a good signal or an overloading input, even from a distance. Extensive shielding and ground lifts help ensure clean, quiet operation in a variety of venues.

The Rubix22 is a 2-in/2-out model with dual mic preamps. When coupled with an iPad, it creates a highly portable recording or performance rig. The Rubix24 adds two extra outputs and a hardware compressor/limiter for controlling highly dynamic sources, and the Rubix44 adds two additional mic preamps for a total of four inputs and four outputs.

The Rubix22 is priced at $149.00, the Rubix24 at $199.00 and the Rubix44 is $299.00.
