    Low-noise performance from the ground up

    When it comes to fighting noise, the Rubix 24 starts off with a pair of microphone preamps that go hand in hand with its extensively shielded construction. These passive noise-reduction methods work great in most cases, but sometimes bad power can ruin your day. Roland addressed this issue by outfitting the Rubix 24 with a system-wide ground-lift switch, so you can cut off any hum coming from the power supply. That's something Music Experience recording engineers have rarely, if ever, seen on an audio interface, and it's extremely useful for recording live sound.

    Onboard dynamics save time and your tracks

    Ask any seasoned engineer/producer, and they'll tell you that getting the best possible sound on the way in will save you hours of editing when it's time to mix. One of the easiest ways to improve your incoming audio is by adding a touch of compression on the front side to keep your levels smooth. That usually requires outboard compressors to pull off, but Roland equipped the Rubix 24 with a pair of 3-mode compressor/limiter circuits. These circuits include two gentle compression modes plus a more aggressive limiter, which you'll appreciate if you record live and have to worry about sudden spikes clipping your levels and ruining your tracks.

    Cool bonus features offer added versatility

    Between its class-compliant USB, robust design, and low-noise performance options, it's clear that Roland intended for the Rubix 24 to be a great mobile audio interface, but it has some tricks up its sleeve that also make it a wonderful start or addition to your home studio. First off, it comes with a 6-month membership to Roland Cloud Pro. MIDI I/O also adds compatibility with keyboards, controllers, and other devices. Selectable headphone output sources let you create a separate monitor mix for recording, which is a real bonus if you collaborate with other artists. Finally, there's loopback recording, which lets you record output sources from your computer. That's particularly handy for podcasting and similar applications.

    What Roland Says...

    Rubix24 offers a perfect balance of high-fidelity sound, solid build quality, compact size, affordable price, and crucial features for today's musicians and producers. With support for high-resolution audio up to 24-bit/192kHz, Rubix24 sounds clear and defined and is carefully engineered to have extremely low noise from input to output. Its near universal USB support means it works seamlessly with Mac and PC computers, and even supports iPads, for the ultimate in portable music production and performance.

    Studio-grade sound you can take anywhere

    Nothing is more important than sound quality when it comes to audio interfaces. And you shouldn’t have to sacrifice sound quality to have an affordable interface that you can take with you. Rubix24 sounds clean and detailed with transparent, low noise mic preamps and supports audio resolutions up 24-bit/192kHz. It’s made of durable metal, and a lot went into its compact, low-noise design. With all the places Rubix24 can go, you’ll appreciate its extensive shielding and ground lifts, making sure you get good clean audio just about anywhere.

    2 high quality mic preamps and 4 separate outputs

    Rubix24’s dual microphone preamps are designed for low noise and high definition. They sound clean and transparent with plenty of headroom for capturing all the impact and detail of whatever you’re recording. And the flexible combo jacks mean you can easily connect a wide variety of sources without the need for adapters or special cables. Four individual outputs mean you can create more sophisticated routing and monitoring setups. This is useful for sending a click track to a performer, setting up a stage monitor, or routing audio to external gear.

    Hardware compressor/limiter

    Highly dynamic sources like vocalists and percussion instruments often need taming, especially when recording on location. Dynamics processors help ensure a good hot signal without clipping and causing unwanted distortion. Rubix24's built-on compressor/limiter provides peace of mind in the heat of a recording session.

    Big, clear level indicators

    Studios and stages can be dark places, and getting proper levels is critical. You want to focus on the performance, not on small, hard-to-see clip and level indicators from across the room. Rubix24 has highly visible indicators that are an integral part of its design. They clearly show if a channel has incoming signal, or if you’re going to overload, even from a distance.

    Built for Mac, PC and iPad

    Rubix24 is ultra-portable and ultra-flexible. It has low latency class compliant drivers for Mac and PC, so it's simple to get up and running with smooth, reliable audio performance. And it also supports iPad giving you an extremely compact system for on-location recording, on-the-go production, or live performance. It even includes six months free of Roland Cloud Pro membership with full access to Zenbeats multi-platform music creation app, software synthesizers like ZENOLOGY Pro, TR-808, and D-50, and much more.
