Multitrack Like You Mean It -- On This 16x10 USB 2.0 Interface!

Need more I/O? Here you go. Able to handle large-scale recording projects, the Roland UA-1610 Studio-Capture USB 2.0 audio interface sports 16 audio inputs, including 12 XLR microphone preamps for capturing every member of the band, along with 10 audio outputs, dual headphone outputs, and MIDI I/O. Add a second Studio-Capture for double the fun. Aside from its 12 mic pres, the Roland UA-1610 Studio-Capture offers front-panel metering options, flexible monitor mixing, and stable drivers with VS Streaming technology that set it apart from other USB interfaces in its class.

12 Digitally Controlled VS Preamps

A dozen digitally controlled microphone preamps (VS Preamps) with 12 XLR/TRS combination inputs -- 4 of which are on the front panel -- provide stellar performance with exceptionally low noise, high headroom, and transparent sound. On each channel, you have independent +48V phantom power, a low-cut filter, phase invert, and digital compression accessible via the included software control panel.

Up to Your Ears in I/O

On the UA-1610, there's an in and out for every purpose. Each of the 12 XLR mic inputs can be used as a balanced/unbalanced line input, while inputs 13 through 16 have their own dedicated rear-panel TRS jacks. You can switch inputs 1 and 2 to Hi-Z operation for connecting guitars and basses directly, and assign inputs 15/16 to the coaxial digital input.

On the output end, the UA-1610 Studio-Capture provides eight analog outputs on TRS jacks with the main stereo outputs mirrored on XLR jacks, along with an extra pair of outputs via a coaxial digital jack. MIDI I/O with Roland's proprietary FPT processing keeps you connected to everything in you've got.

The Hub of the Recording Studio

VS Streaming technology puts low-latency USB performance at your disposal, allowing you to connect all your instruments and mics to the audio interface and enjoy high-res, 24-bit recording at up to 192 kHz. The interface supports all current DAWs through ASIO 2.0/WDM (Windows) and Core Audio (Mac) drivers.

Put Your Levels on Autopilot

Roland's one-click Auto-Sens feature allows you to set your input levels faster than you can set the time on a microwave. Getting your levels just right is a matter of pushing the Auto-Sens button and playing your connected instruments. If you're the artist, engineer and producer rolled into one, this feature is sure to save you time (and takes).

Monitor Mixes Made Easy

Four independent Direct Mixers are onboard for creating software-controlled monitor mixes, each of which can be routed to any of the Studio-Capture's analog outputs. The interface's internal 40-bit DSP processing makes it easy to send custom monitor mixes to headphones, recording devices, or speakers.

Features:

- USB 2.0 audio interface for studio and mobile production
- 16 audio inputs and 10 audio outputs, including 12 microphone preamps (VS Preamps)
- VS Streaming technology delivers stable, low-latency driver performance for Windows and Mac
- Auto-Sens intelligently sets optimal input levels for all preamps
- Individual input/output meters and input channel buttons
- 4 independent, software-controlled monitor mixes
- XLR monitor out, direct monitor, and dual headphone outputs with independent front-panel level knobs
- Coaxial digital I/O
- MIDI I/O with FPT
- Expand your I/O by using two Studio-Captures together, both controlled with a single driver
- 2U rackmount ears included

Providing big-studio I/O in a compact enclosure, the UA-1610 Studio-Capture is the ideal recording companion to your laptop. It fits in your backpack, on your studio desk, installed in your dedicated rack, or wherever you make music.

Product Description

With the STUDIO-CAPTURE, Roland once again raises the performance standard for computer-based audio production. This addition to the acclaimed CAPTURE family boasts 12 premium-grade mic preamps, an industry first for a compact USB audio interface. A total of 16 audio inputs, 10 audio outputs, and MIDI I/O offers massive connectivity for pro-level setups, all in a single, tabletop unit that fits easily into a travel bag. Other top-flight features include 24-bit/192 kHz audio quality, comprehensive front-panel metering, XLR monitor outputs with dedicated level control, dual headphone outputs, rock-solid drivers with VS STREAMING technology, and much more. Durable, portable, and ready to take on large-scale recording projects both in the studio and on the road, STUDIO-CAPTURE stands head and shoulders above all other USB audio interfaces on the market.

The Studio-Capture can input 16 channels and output 10 channels simultaneously at 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz and 96 kHz. When operating at 192 kHz, the Studio-Capture can input 8 channels and output 4 channels simultaneously.

Top Quality Modern Audio Performance

Combining pro-level audio performance, abundant I/O, and a versatile mobile design, STUDIO-CAPTURE is a powerful solution for today's musicians, composers, and recording engineers. It delivers quality equivalent to dedicated rackmount audio interfaces costing much more, all in a compact, go-everywhere package that's equally suited for traveling production, tabletop use in home studios, or permanent installation in commercial studios with the included rack ears. The 16 audio inputs, 12 mic preamps, and flexible monitor mixing allow you to track most bands without adding any additional hardware, or simultaneously connect multiple synthesizers and other devices in large-scale composing setups. To take on really big projects, you can seamlessly expand your I/O to 32 inputs and 24 mic preamps simply by adding a second STUDIO-CAPTURE.

12 Premium Microphone Preamps

Among its many standout features, STUDIO-CAPTURE offers 12 digitally controlled mic preamps (VS PREAMPS), built with premium-grade components for exceptional low-noise performance, high headroom, and transparent sound quality. 12 XLR/TRS combo inputs are provided for the preamps, with four inputs conveniently located on the front panel for quick and easy access. Available on each channel is independent phantom power, a low-cut filter, phase invert, and digital compression, accessible via the included software control panel.

Generous and Flexible I/O

STUDIO-CAPTURE is equipped with a total of 16 input channels and 10 output channels. With the versatile, space-saving combo jacks, each of the 12 XLR mic inputs can alternately be used as a balanced/unbalanced line input, while inputs 13-16 have their own dedicated rear-panel TRS jacks. Inputs 1 and 2 can be switched to Hi-Z operation for connecting guitars and basses directly, while inputs 15/16 can be assigned to the coaxial digital input. Eight analog outputs are provided on TRS jacks, with the main stereo outputs mirrored on XLR jacks. Two additional outputs (9/10) are available via a coaxial digital jack. STUDIO-CAPTURE also features MIDI I/O, with Roland's proprietary FPT processing for superior high-speed performance.

High-Performance VS Streaming Technology

STUDIO-CAPTURE offers high-resolution, 24-bit recording at rates up to 192 kHz, with incredible stability and industry-leading low-latency USB performance provided by Roland's proprietary VS STREAMING technology. All current Mac and PC DAW platforms are supported through ASIO 2.0/WDM (Windows) and Core Audio (Mac) drivers. Thanks to VS STREAMING, you can expand your I/O by using two STUDIO-CAPTUREs on the same USB bus without compromising stability or audio quality.

AUTO-SENS: Perfect Levels at the Touch of the Button

Unique to Roland's CAPTURE family is the innovative AUTO-SENS feature, which makes it fast and easy to set perfect input levels every time. Just press the dedicated front-panel button, play your connected instruments, and STUDIO-CAPTURE automatically sets the ideal recording level for each input in seconds. Useful for pros and beginners alike, AUTO-SENS is great for quick, fail-safe audio capture when recording a fully mic'd drum kit or an entire band.

Comprehensive Monitoring and Mixing

Bright, responsive LED meters let you keep an eye on levels for individual input and output channels and the MONITOR OUT, while dedicated input channel buttons and other intuitive controls make it easy to navigate the built-in display. The MONITOR OUT section features a dedicated LEVEL knob for control room volume, plus a DIRECT MONITOR knob for listening to selected input signals. Two headphone jacks -- each with their own level knob -- allow a musician and engineer to monitor at the same time without additional hardware.

Flexible Monitor Mixing with Effects

Beyond traditional audio interfacing, STUDIO-CAPTURE offers four independent Direct Mixers for zero-latency monitoring, operated via the software control panel. Powered by STUDIO-CAPTURE's internal DSP, each mix can be routed to any of the outputs, perfect for sending custom monitor mixes to headphones, speakers, or recording devices. Mix configurations can be saved for later use, providing quick setups for many different applications. A high-quality reverb processor is available for monitoring, allowing singers and instrumentalists to record dry tracks while listening to great-sounding ambience effects.
