Roland RUBIX44 overview

  • 1Description

The 4-in/4-out Rubix44 USB audio interface from Roland offers a balance of high-fidelity sound, solid build quality, compact size, and powerful features, which give you studio-grade performance just about anywhere you choose to record.

The Rubix44 is equipped with four low-noise mic preamps and two Hi-Z jack inputs for guitars or other high impedance sources. It supports audio resolution up to 24-bit/192 kHz and features class-compliant Mac and Windows drivers, for low latency. Four individual balanced outputs give you additional options for routing audio to external gear or setting up a stage monitor.

The unit also features two hardware compressor/limiter to help ensure you capture a hot signal without clipping or unwanted distortion, and big level indicators that clearly show if a channel has incoming signal or if you're going to overload, critical for working in low-level light environments such as stages.

The Rubix44 is well equipped to meet the rigors of the road. Its sturdy and compact metal construction, extensive shielding, and ground lift effectively protect it against radio frequency interference and electrical hums, often found in live venues.

Connect your Rubix44 to an iPad, and using the included Ableton Live Lite software, turn it into a compact system for on-location productions.

    Roland RUBIX44 reviews

    Rubix44 - 4x4 USB Audio Interface is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, overlooked audio interface I am using this interface primarily to record 2 stereo pairs from my Elektron Octatrack and multitracking with Ableton Live and Adobe Audition. I'm monitoring on JBL LSR205s & KRK KNS8400s. The build quality of the interface is very nice and the knobs feel durable with no wobble and a good amount of rotation pressure that feels precise and smooth. I have am experiencing very low latency on OSX El Capitan and successfully multitracked into my iPad using Beatmaker. The compressors sounds nice, especially for the price range. I find them to be perfectly subtle; there to enhance your audio recording rather than act as an effect. I think that's a smart decision for an onboard compressor since you could get more dramatic, pumping, compression in your DAW if that's what you're going for. Overall I'm really happy with this interface. I could hardly find reviews of this line so hopefully this is helpful for anyone else looking at these.
