Roland aims to solve your audio I/O problem with its new Rubix interfaces

All three models work with PC, Mac and iPad

Roland has refreshed its line-up of USB audio interfaces by introducing the new Rubix range. This comprises three products, all of which are compatible with PC, Mac and iPad.

As you'd expect, the Rubix22 is a 2-in/2-out model, while the Rubix24 adds a couple of additional outputs and a built-in compressor/limiter. If you want another two inputs on top of that, you can choose the Rubix44.

We're promised low noise from all of the interfaces, with support for audio resolutions up to 24-bit/192kHz. Indicators tell you whether you've got a good signal or an overloading input, while compact sizes and supposedly solid build quality means that the Rubixs should be equipped for life on the road.

Find out more below and on the Roland website. We're still awaiting prices and release dates.
