    The landscape of desktop audio interfaces is incredibly vast, with strong competition between a number of manufacturers. Focusrite, Mackie, Behringer, Presonus, and more all compete with one another based on three primary factors – number of channels, feature set, and price.

    This is especially relevant in the realm of one and two channel audio interfaces, as is the common option for most beginners.

    But what if you’re looking to do a little more? With more channels, a great feature set, and a competitive price, we think the Roland Rubix44 is a stand-out option.

    The Channels

    The most obvious feature that sets the Rubix44 apart from competition in this price point is the fact that it includes 4 Combo jack input channels, as well as 4 line level output channels.

    To sweeten the deal they’ve powered these 4 channels with Roland high-quality pre-amps carefully designed for pristine sound and low-noise performance.

    And perhaps even more critically, Roland have put particular emphasis on high quality AD/DA conversion, allowing  warm and clear high-resolution audio up to 24-bit/192 kHz, which is practically unheard of at this price point.
