Low profile, high fidelity interface.
A lot of musicians work mostly by themselves, so high input interfaces are not required. What is required is impeccable audio quality, low latency, versatile patching configurations and rugged construction. The Roland UA-S10 has it covered. It comproses two separate units, one that does the D to A and A to D conversions, and a separate module that houses the XLR I/O component of the UA-S10. This fact of the microphone inputs being separate from the conversion compnent of it makes for excellent studio ergonomics and minimization of desk clutter.
Whether you're mixing and editing in the studio or playing to sold-out crowds on the road, you need an interface that presents your music with stunning clarity and maximum impact. Our newly developed S1Lki DSP engine and high-resolution DACs delivers the latest in high-resolution audio playback. The Super UA's high-end DAC supports 2.8 MHz/1-bit DSD and 192 kHz/32-bit floating point PCM playback - so you can experience the full resolution of your DAW's 32-bit audio engine. Hear the most precise edits and subtle mix details. On stage, softsynths and backing tracks sound their absolute best, leaving a lasting impression on your audience.
Today's musicians and producers are often on the go - composing in a hotel room, editing on a plane, or mixing at home. The Super UA was developed with the modern “ and sometimes mobile “ musician in mind. Its flexible design makes it feel like a permanent fixture in the studio yet easy to grab and go when needed. The Super UA consists of a main tabletop unit with two channels of TRS I/O and headphone jacks, plus a separate I/O module that connects with a single, sturdy cable. The I/O module is equipped with XLR jacks for hooking up microphones and studio monitors. Sitting neatly on your workspace, the main unit features a large, multi-function knob surrounded by LEDs, along with recessed, illuminated buttons that allow direct access to all four inputs, two sets of monitors, and two sets of headphones. When you want to work on music away from your studio, the main unit easily detaches from the I/O module and functions as a standalone two-in/two-out interface with dual headphone jacks. This lets you leave your mics and monitors connected in the studio while you bring the Super UA's exceptional performance with you on the road, to a gig, or anywhere else life takes you.
Build quality was a prime consideration when developing the Super UA. We wanted it to feel solid and reliable. So it's made entirely of die-cast metal. It grips whatever surface it's on and won't slide around. The solid, accurate knob has just the right amount of reassuring click. And the smooth meters and LED illuminated controls are bold and beautiful.
While the Super UA was designed for audiophile-grade sound, it was also engineered for pro-studio performance. Whether recording, mixing, or playing live, you need reliable, low-latency operation with your favorite DAW and soft synths. Roland's expertise in hardware design and years of experience in audio driver development mean you can breathe easy while you sound your best.
I had M audio audiophinle 192(good), Digital Audio labs Card Deluxe (great converters), Focusrite Saffire 24Pro (clean sound), Steinberg UR28m (clean sound), Roland super UA and now a Antelope Zen Studio (clean, wide and professional 3d sounding interface). I really loved the Roland, preamps sounded so musical compared to the others. The dinamic range was great, not as large as Zen studio, but miles ahead the others. It had a certain 'clean darkness' to the tone very very very beautiful. A carachter interface. Had to sell it, but on another chance i'll buy another one. Roland should build a rack/thunderbolt version and start to compete with UAD, Claretts, Symphonys, Antelopes, etc.
This is probably one of the most underrated audio interfaces in the market. With an output of 32bit, you are able to master your songs without the extra expense of other hardware.
I managed to snag this brand new at half the normal cost as a replacement for my Focusrite Forte (drivers were too unstable for me). Sounds brilliant, looks great, and very simple to use. Big fan of the tactile buttons vs the press-and-hold icons on the Forte screen. The software control panel is very nice as well. Roland has been hit-or-miss with synths and stuff lately, but this thing seems to be a massively underrated unit, especially considering the price (even without the discount I got). Why are there almost no reviews out there???
