Comments about Roland UA-55 Quad Capture 4-Channel USB Audio/MIDI Interface:

First off, yes this unit has just TWO mic pre's. "Quad" is because it does have four channels. Two digital and two analog. It's surprising the bad reviewer really liked the sound quality but gave it one star because they didn't understand the connectivity. Oh well. It works really well for my portable recordings. I use it with my laptop power and it's pretty clean. If I get noise I switch the ground lift switch and that normally fixes it.

My levels can be instantly set with the auto-sens function so I don't worry about clipping when recording live sources. The mic pre's sound great and are supposed to be the same as on the more expensive Octa-Capture. It can record and playback at 24bit 192kHz. And it sounds incredible when you set it for that. Just beware, you'll need to make sure you have your computer set right to avoid clicks and pops at that sample rate.

Lastly, it works as a great output source for my live projects with backing tracks and is equally suited to record live sessions.

Highly recommend!

Comments about Roland UA-55 Quad Capture 4-Channel USB Audio/MIDI Interface:

How can a Quad Channel device have only 2 channels. Sure, there are 2 other channels, but not pre-amped, phantom powered mic inputs. Next thing they'll start calling the midi input as another channel. Anyway, the two Real Channels sound very good.
