High-quality interface in a compact unit

Roland's Studio-Capture packs twelve digitally controlled premium VS preamps. These are the same preamps found in the V-Studio 700 and M-400 digital mixers. With a 24-bit/192kHz sample rate, you can rest assured your audio will be clean and clear. The Roland Studio-Capture is the perfect interface for your home studio or on the go. Each channel offers independent phantom power, a low-cut filter, phase invert, and digital compression, accessible via the included software control panel.

Get the perfect input levels with the push of a button

An Auto Input Level Adjustment lets you instantly set the ideal input level of each of the Studio-Capture's analog inputs with just the push of a button. Just push the front-panel button and play your instrument for automatic level setting. Useful for beginners and pros alike, this is a fail safe to capturing great audio every time.

Custom monitor mixes straight from the Studio-Capture

Create individual monitor mixes, with effects, all within the Roland Studio-Capture. With four independent zero-latency monitor mixers, you'll be able to create the mixes your band needs and wants. Powered by the Studio-Capture's internal DSP, each mix can be routed out various outputs. You can even save mixes for later use. A built-in reverb processor lets you add reverb to any or every mix to help your performers.

Mobile 12 Pre Production Rig

I purchased a used Studio Capture online, and I'e been using it for recording live jam sessions. I was skeptical about running 12 mics, four with 48v into my pc, but I have had zero USB or DAW issues while pushing this thing in Cubase 8. It has advanced on board audio processing capability and is quiet and transparent. You could easily spend twice as much on a boutique interface with 8 fewer preamps and not notice a difference in performance or quality. It's a professional, budget buy for the intelligent engineer. I keep it in a large gator case with a mini-atx pc and portable monitor. I like how it's design isn't overly large like most rack gear. The utilization of space on this machine is a notable feature in itself. The only con I have is that the super cool auto-sens feature can be a little unpredictable in it's results, and you shouldn't rely on it entirely (Don't hit it and immediately start recording, knuckleheads), but I'm sure if I read up a bit more on what the chip is actually doing I would be able to predict and utilize it's benefit more.

It's a Roland

I know, and you will probably secretly admit, that all things Computers, Software, and Electronics are work of the Devil, and thus possessed by Demons and Bugs, and SKEEERS me. That being said, Roland's Studio Capture worked flawlessly and immediately with the latest version of ProTools 12 on the latest version of Windows 10. No crashes, no conflicts, just works. Very intuitive, which for the totally intimidated and uncomprehending TechnoPhobe like me, also SKEEERS me. How do it Know?

I did my research for months and found this Treasure. I Ordered it and Greg Savino was my Sales Engineer. Within an hour of buying it, He called me and thanked me for my purchase and offered any help or answers to any questions I had. He was Great! I received the Studio Capture on the exact day they said it would be at my house. Easy Installation of Software and started recording within 10 minutes of taking it out of the box! Excellent Preamps with no noise and the Auto Sense function is SO convenient! I recommend this to anyone with a home studio and looking for a Professional, Fully Loaded Interface for a Low price for what it can do! And I give Greg S. a 10/10 for service! Sweetwater is THE BEST Company to go to for any of your music needs! Knowledgable, Friendly, and Honest Staff! I couldn't be Happier!

Incredible sound!!!

I first bought a more expensive interface but it just did not sound that great. So I set out to find the best sound I could in my budget. I use to record with the Roland VS2480 years ago and it sounded great. So I decided to to what Roland has to offer. After my research I decided on the Roland Studio Capture. It was everything I had hoped it would be. It sounds so much better then the flagship model of another manufacture I bought first on a suggestion by a friend. I rerecorded the same band with all the same instruments, mics, and rooms. The Studio Capture blew my other new interface out if the water and at less then half the cost. I finally have the open top end sound I have have been looking for. I highly recommend the Studio Capture. It sounds great, is easy to use, and has fantastic features. My other interface is for sell.
