Roland Unveils Line of Rubix Audio Interfaces

A portable 2-in/2-out interface with dual mic preamps.

Los Angeles, CA (October 24, 2017) -- Building on a legacy that includes the world's first multiport USB 2.0 audio interface, Roland announces the availability of Rubix, a line of audio interfaces for Mac, PC, and iPad. Rubix is designed to offer a perfectly balanced combination of high-fidelity sound, solid build quality, compact size, affordable price, and crucial features for today's musicians and producers.

The Rubix audio interface line consists of the Rubix22, 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.

Rubix22 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. Rubix24 adds two extra outputs and a hardware compressor/limiter for controlling highly dynamic sources. Rubix44 adds two additional mic preamps for a total of 4 inputs and 4 outputs.

The Roland Rubix series is available with pricing as follows:

  • Rubix22: U.S. street $149.00.
  • Rubix24: U.S. street $199.00.
  • Rubix44: U.S. street $299.00

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
