Combining ten inputs, ten outputs, and eight VS Preamps with transparent 24-bit/192 kHz audio quality, the Roland Octa-Capture sets a new standard for portable USB 2.0 audio interfaces. High-level audio production comes easy with this fusion of premium components, Roland-quality engineering, and proprietary preamp and streaming technology. Octa-Capture is not only the perfect interface for multi-channel computer-based production, but also a great solution for expanding the I/O capability of the V-Studio 700 and V-Studio 100. Brimming with quality and performance seldom seen in its price range, Octa-Capture is the next-generation audio interface.

Eight Premium Mic Preamps

With its eight mic preamps, Octa-Capture shows its mettle in multi-mic applications like recording drums or full bands. The input level specs for Channels 7 and 8 have been optimized for extremely dynamic sound sources with high peak levels such as kick drums; the extra headroom (up to +16dBu) available on these channels helps prevent clipping and other recording problems. OCTA-CAPTURE also features independent compressors on its eight analog inputs to control the dynamics of difficult sound sources, ensuring solid recordings with clear sound and consistent levels.

One-Click AUTO-SENS: Automatic Input Level Adjustment

Setting optimum recording levels is an indispensable part of capturing high-quality recordings. If input levels are too high, the sound will distort; if levels are too low, you lose the advantage of the excellent resolution afforded by digital recording, and the sound suffers from signal-to-noise ratio deterioration. To solve these issues, OCTA-CAPTURE is equipped with a newly developed "AUTO-SENS" function, which makes it quick and easy for even novice users to set the optimum level for a particular sound source. With AUTO-SENS, all you have to do is press a button, supply sound input, and the built-in DSP will analyze the sound and set the optimum input level. In addition to Manual mode, where the DSP begins analyzing when you press the button and stops when you press it again, you can also define a preset analysis time of 30 seconds, 1 minute, 3 minutes, or 5 minutes. This revolutionary function is a real time-saver in recording sessions where setup time is limited.

Extreme Low-Latency Driver

Octa-Capture offers incredible stability and industry-leading low-latency USB performance via 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 use multiple devices (two Octa-Capture units or one Octa-Capture plus a V-Studio 100 or V-Studio 700) on the same USB bus without compromising stability, performance, or audio quality.

Four Flexible Monitor Mixes

With OCTA-CAPTURE and its high-performance DSP boasting 40-bit internal processing capability, you can use up to four digital mixers in two different categories (input mixer and output mixer) without tasking your PC. With these "direct mixers," you're able to directly output any connected source without routing it through your DAW program, and also tweak your sounds using OCTA-CAPTURE's built-in digital reverb and compressor. You can provide four independent latency-free mixes for performers, with different source volumes and dry-wet balances to suit the preferences of each musician. Each digital mixer also features a patch bay, which allows you to route your outputs for various applications and save these settings on your PC

Link Two Units for 16 x 16 Audio Input/Output

Need more flexibility? Link two Octa-Capture interfaces for 16 x 16 audio I/O, letting you add more instruments, mix more tracks, and more.

Supports Major Digital Audio Workstations (DAW)

Thanks to ASIO 2.0/WDM support for PC and Core Audio drivers for Mac, the Octa-Capture supports all major DAW platforms, including Cakewalk, ProTools, and more.
