Roland has announced the
TRI-CAPTURE UA-33 and DUO-CAPTURE UA-11 USB Audio Interfaces, the latest additions to the growing lineup of USB audio capture devices for computer-based recording. They tell us that the new portable interfaces offer both high performance and affordability for computer audio enthusiasts using either Windows or Mac OS platforms. Here's more details direct from Roland...
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, the 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. The TRI-CAPTURE records and plays back 24-bit audio at sample rates up to 96 kHz, and is bundled with the 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 an 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 the TRI-CAPTURE and DUO-CAPTURE are available for both Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. Pricing and Availability:
