News: Roland Tri-Capture USB audio interface

The Latest Additions to the Growing Lineup of USB Audio Capture Devices

Los Angeles, CA, May 9, 2011 — Roland U.S. is now shipping theTRI-CAPTURE UA-33 and DUO-CAPTURE UA-11 USB Audio Interfaces, the latest additions to the company’s growing lineup of USB audio capture devices for computer-based recording. The new portable interfaces offer both high performance and affordability for computer audio enthusiasts using either Windows or Mac OS platforms.

The TRI-CAPTURE UA-33 is an inexpensive, easy-to-use stereo audio interface that’s great for guitarists, vocalists, and other musicians. It also works well for video production, web streaming, and creating podcasts.

Powered via USB, TRI-CAPTURE is equipped with three kinds of inputs — an XLR mic input with phantom power, a 1/4-inch input with a Hi-Z switch that allows users to connect a guitar directly, and a stereo AUX input with a dedicated volume control for connecting a stereo sound source such as a keyboard, rhythm machine, mixer, or portable music player. Sound output from the computer is provided on stereo 1/4-inch TRS output jacks and a headphone jack. The three unique recording modes provide instant selection of recording scenarios, including LOOP BACK for web streaming applications. TRI-CAPTURE records and plays back 24-bit audio at sample rates up to 96 kHz, and is bundled with Cakewalk SONAR X1 LE.

The DUO-CAPTURE UA-11 is a compact and portable USB audio interface designed for musicians and engineers that record on-the-go with laptop computers. It features a 1/4-inch Mic/Guitar input with an impedance selector and a 1/8-inch stereo input for connecting stereo devices. Stereo output is provided on 1/8-inch and 1/4-inch headphone outputs, both of which are available simultaneously. The device also has convenient input and output volume controls, and is powered via USB.

Audio drivers for TRI-CAPTURE and DUO-CAPTURE are available for both Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.

Both interfaces are available now. MSRP is $159.00 for the TRI-CAPTURE UA-33 and $89.99 for the DUO-CAPTURE UA-11.
