Three Great Ways to Record, in One!

The compact and versatile Roland TRI-CAPTURE USB interface is a unique take on a tried-and-true recording concept. Equipped with four individual inputs, the TRI-CAPTURE lets you hook up your microphone, guitar, and additional stereo equipment all at once. It's convenient mixer-style front-panel controls let you quickly dial in input and output volumes. But that's not all. The TRI-CAPTURE also features a Record Mode button, which makes setting up to record a snap. When you select Mic/Guitar mode, the TRI-CAPTURE configures itself to record channels 1 and 2 on separate tracks - perfect for laying down song ideas or working with a friend.

The TRI-CAPTURE also features two stereo recording modes. When you select All Inputs mode, the TRI-CAPTURE busses all four inputs to a single stereo pair, letting you add a keyboard or drum machine into the mix. Want to recording streaming audio? The TRI-CAPTURE makes it easy. Just switch it into Loop Back mode, and the TRI-CAPTURE will record all input and outputs to a single stereo track - so you can jam along to streaming audio, without having to re-cable your system. If you want options from an easy to use USB interface, then the Roland TRI-CAPTURE is perfect for you!

Works great for R2R transfer project

I'm a classical violinist, transferring to digital files over 80 reel-to-reel recordings of concert performances. About 80% done now, and the Roland works perfectly. Couldn't ask for more. Sweetwater customer service is outstanding.

Exactly the equipment for the job!

Once I found my RCA to 1/4 reg adapter for my headphones, I was on my way. A couple reviews for function settings and the Roland Tri-Capture and I was on the job! The customer service gave me an added experience of confidence shopping with Sweetwater. Shipping was prompt! Gotta go now because I want to check out the digital mikes to go with my cardoid mikes. ;)

Awesome! Glitch free

Just starting out with the whole DAW thing. I had a POD X3 live as my audio interface before. It used to crash constantly. I got fed up and bought this unit here. I had to choose between and M-Audio ant this one. I love this unit, works great. The sound is crystal clear. Installation was a breeze and it has not crashed once in the 6 months I've had it and I used this thing all the time. Good job Roland!

Easy set up - good sound

I've only had this for a week. I took a chance buying it as I could find no reviews. I chose it because I am switching to Sonar. It worked immediately with Sonar and my wife recorded a vocal track with it right out of the box. The sound was so good that , when she was playing back over some average computer speakers, I had to look to see if she was singing live! I have since recorded my Fodera bass guitar, and also a fretless bass with very high impedance piezo pickups, with excellent results. Does the job.

Roland TriCapture

Works & sounds great, got it up and running quickly. Bought it to use for recording with Cakewalk's Sonar. For the money I'm very happy with it so far.
