The Roland TRI-CAPTURE Demonstrates The Power of Three!

Roland's versatile TRI-CAPTURE USB audio interface is the new head of its class. The TRI-CAPTURE is a unique, compact audio interface that's ideal for mobile and personal recording, guitar and vocal recording and streaming internet applications. Because of its mixer-like design and dedicated front-panel controls, TRI-CAPTURE makes it a breeze to record, control, mix and monitor a broad variety of signals. With the TRI-CAPTURE, you can plug a microphone into the XLR input, an instrument into the 1/4" jack and a stereo instrument or device into the AUX input. The convenient and unique REC MODE section offers instantaneous selection of several recording setups, including LOOP BACK for web streaming applications. TRI-CAPTURE is comprehensive yet quite portable, and is also USB bus powered - no need to mess around with AC adapters.

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.
