At CES 2017, you find also brands like Roland and they announced in Las Vegas a couple of new audio interfaces. They are designed to offer a perfect combination of high-fidelity sound, solid build quality, compact size, affordable price and a good amount of features for musicians.
The new audio interface line consists of the Rubix 22, 24 and 44. Each multi-platform interface is carefully engineered to have extremely low noise from input to output. Clean, detailed sound is the top priority, with transparent, low noise mic preamps and support for audio resolutions up to 24-bit/192kHz. Highly visible indicators clearly show the presence of a good signal or an overloading input, even from a distance. Extensive shielding and ground lifts help ensure clean, quiet operation in a variety of venues, and the compact metal construction means Rubix can provide studio-grade performance just about anywhere.
Rubix 22 is a 2-in/2-out model with dual mic preamps. When coupled with an iPad, it creates a highly portable recording or performance rig. Rubix 24 adds two extra outputs and a hardware compressor/limiter for controlling highly dynamic sources. Rubix 44 adds two additional mic preamps for a total of 4 inputs and 4 outputs.
