Can't get more for the money. Great value. Try finding just an eight channel input card assembly for your pc and you'll pay more than you will for this package. There is a learning curve but,there is info available on the net if you look around. Also, I recommend buying the instruction video on the 3100Pro from Roland.I have it installed with Win 98SE and it works great. Using CubaseSX software. The mixer has great features and FX's, especially for the money. Excellent for home studio.

I use it to mix keyboards and one guitar, no mics. I use it pluged to RPC-1 pc card (studio Pack) for digital recording. Some things that could be better:

a) moving faders b) pc editor for editing the effects and routing c) more sample rates (48kHz at least)

Very good for the price.

Blah, I cant even get the damn thing to work. Ive read manuals over and over called tech support. More or less made my hard drive barrenof anything that isnt needed to keep everything running. Wasted countless hours in discussion boards on official websites and still nowhere. Unless this thing works by this wednesday im sending it back and getting a new bass.

I have the Roland Studio Pack, and I love it. It's underated in a lot of ways, in my opinion. One obvious thing about the VM3100pro as compared to something like that cheap software mixer by Peavey is that it IS actually a digital mixer. DOUBLES AS A SEPERATE DIGITAL MIXER. It records at 24-bit quality. It has Busses for 2 different kinds of digital outputs. Onboard compressors and FX.(aww, too bad there's only 2 compressors. *sarcasm* IT ISN'T A COMPRESSOR!! IT'S A MIXER!!) The software installed easily on my system, and I have a PC! The studio pack is affordable at $695, without cutting back from quality of professionalism. (I made that one up)

Drawbacks: (the few there are) - R-bus should be longer. (bo-hoo) - Logic RPC software should be updated for audio file conversion options along with compatibility with Windows XP. (the biggest problem I've found) - Roland tech-support costs money. (GET A PHONE CARD YOU CHEAP PEOPLE!!) - Can't figure out everything aboutit in one day. (Sue them for being a little complex)

All in all : MY BEST PRO AUDIO PURCHASE YET!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
