The Roland UA-1010

The Roland UA-1010 OCTA-CAPTURE Hi-SPEED USB audio interface sets a new standard in portable interfaces with its ten inputs, ten outputs, eight VS preamps and superb 24-bit/192 kHz audio fidelity. The UA-1010 has clearly been designed for high-level audio productions. It combines Roland-quality engineering with premium components, not to mention Roland's proprietary preamp and streaming technology. With its spectacular audio quality and compact design, OCTA-CAPTURE is not only the ideal interface for multi-channel computer-based production, but is also a great solution for expanding the I/O capacities of the V-STUDIO 700 and V-STUDIO 100 units. For information on how to accomplish that, see this support document here: OCTA-CAPTURE w/ VS-100 & VS-700

Eight Professional Grade Mic Preamps
The Roland UA-1010 OCTA-CAPTURE sports eight digitally controlled mic preamps (VS PREAMPS), built with the same premium components as those in the V-STUDIO 700 and M-400 V-Mixer. Eight 1/4"/XLR combo inputs are available for the preamps, including independent phantom power, low-cut filters, phase inversion and digital compression for the individual channels.

Featuring AUTO-SENS Automatic Level Adjustment
The Roland OCTA-CAPTURE makes it super fast and easy to set your ideal input levels — just activate the AUTO-SENS feature with the push of a button, then pick up your instrument and play. OCTA-CAPTURE automatically sets the optimum recording level for each input. It’s certainly a great feature for fast and accurate audio recording when miking either a full drum kit or an entire band.

Extreme Low-Latency Driver
The Roland OCTA-CAPTURE provides unparalleled stability and industry-leading low-latency USB performance through Roland’s proprietary VS STREAMING technology. Virtually all current Mac and PC DAWs (Digital Audio Workstations) are supported through ASIO 2.0/WDM (Windows) and Core Audio (Mac) drivers. With VS STREAMING, you can use multiple devices (two OCTA-CAPTURE units or one OCTA-CAPTURE with a V-STUDIO 100 or V-STUDIO 700) on the same USB bus without compromising stability, performance, or audio quality.

Four Independent Monitor Mixes
Above and beyond audio interfaces that have come before it, the Roland OCTA-CAPTURE provides four independent Direct Mixers for making software-controlled monitor mixes. Each individual mix can be routed to any of the available analog outputs and can take advantage of the internal 40-bit DSP processing - ideal for sending custom monitor mixes to speakers, recording devices and/or headphones.

Cakewalk's SONAR X1 LE
Included with this impressive audio interface is the critically-acclaimed digital audio workstation: SONAR X1 LE. SONAR X1's unequaled Skylight user interface speeds up your workflow and offers a clean and modern creation environment that allows you to focus on your music rather than having to stumble around navigating through the more technically complex interfaces of some of its competitors. Recording is just as fast and intuitive as editing your recordings. You'll be able to take your music to heights previously unheard by producing and mixing your music using SONAR X1's phenomenal music creation tools and its comprehensive suite of powerful software instruments and effects.
