A Compact Version of the M-5000

The compact Roland M-5000C digital mixing console is ideal for theaters, portable churches, and mobile recording rigs. It provides you with everything you need to run your live show with ease. The M-5000C features Roland's O.H.R.C.A. technology, which stands for Open High Resolution Configurable Architecture. You can configure up to 128 audio paths which can be any combination of input channels, aux sends, submixes, and matrices, all at 24-bit/96kHz sound quality. Add to that a plethora of expansion options, and the Roland M-5000C makes for a phenomenal compact digital mixing console.

Roland M-5000C Digital Mixing Console at a Glance:
  • Configure 128 audio paths to be input channels, mix buses, and more
  • Powerful processing for outstanding sonic control
  • Up to 300 inputs and 288 outputs at 96kHz, even more at 48kHz
  • Built-in I/O for small-format mixing, REAC for larger shows
  • Two expansion ports for Dante, MADI, SoundGrid, and more
Configure 128 audio paths to be input channels, mix buses, and more

No matter what type of mixing application you're in, you'll find the M-5000C digital console to be amazingly configurable. It's a powerful solution for front of house, monitor mixing, and even broadcast applications. Instead of a fixed number of input channels, aux sends, mix buses, and so on, the M-5000C gives you 128 configurable audio paths at 24-bit/96kHz sound quality. These audio paths can be assigned as input channels, matrices, outputs, Mix-minus buses, and more. Whether you mainly need lots of inputs, lots of outputs, or many of both, the M-5000C has you covered.

Powerful processing for outstanding sonic control

Every one of the M-5000C's 128 audio paths has DSP for a 4-band EQ, two dynamics processors, and an adjustable delay. You can adjust the delay in milliseconds, by units of distance, or even video frame rates, making it incredibly easy to make sure your audio is all lined up in any application. On top of this powerful input and output processing, the M-5000C includes eight stereo or dual-mono multi-effects processors based on classic Roland and BOSS effects. To round out the toolbox, the M-5000C gives you a total of 32, 31-band graphic equalizers that can also be switched to an 8-band parametric mode. While it's still relatively easy to connect a rack full of compressors, EQs, and effects to the M-5000C, its built-in processing means you probably won't even want to.

Up to 300 inputs and 288 outputs at 96kHz, even more at 48kHz

The architecture of the Roland M-5000C supports up to 300 inputs and 288 outputs at 96kHz, and 448 at 48kHz. Any input can be patched to any or multiple outputs, without having to be patched through a mixing channel. And how you configure your mixing channels is up to you. You'll have incredibly efficient and precise control over high channel counts, even across a wide range of protocols and formats.

Built-in I/O for small-format mixing, REAC for larger shows

The M-5000C is ready for small-format applications with 16 analog inputs and 8 outputs on balanced XLR connections, plus digital I/O via AES/EBU. There's even a built-in 16 x 16 USB audio interface for computer recording and playback. When you need more connectivity, you'll tap into the convenience of Roland's REAC protocol. Connect Roland's REAC-ready stage boxes, personal monitoring systems, and even recording systems directly to the M-5000C via simple Ethernet cable.

Two expansion ports for Dante, MADI, SoundGrid, and more

You can expand your connectivity options greatly with the Roland M-5000C's dual expansion ports. Add connectivity for Dante, MADI, and SoundGrid digital audio formats, or add more REAC connections to support more of Roland's REAC devices. These versatile expansion options give you the connectivity you need to integrate the M-5000C into any live sound, recording, or broadcast environment. It didn't take long for the sound engineers at Sweetwater to recognize the incredible potential of the Roland M-5000C digital mixing console.
