Roland is proud to introduce the Roland Studio Pack: a complete, easy-to-use system for musicians looking to do 24-bit/24-track digital recording and mixing on their Mac or PC. This package includes a 20-channel digital mixer with 24-bit converters and studio-quality effects (the VM-3100Pro), a PCI audio card (the RPC-1), and a customized 24-bit/24-track version of Emagics award-winning Logic Audio recording and MIDI production software, entitled "Logic RPC."
At the heart of the Studio Pack is Rolands VM-3100Pro V-Mixing Station. The perfect "front-end" for Logic RPC, the VM-3100Pro is a compact 20-channel/8-bus/24-bit tabletop digital mixer with 12 analog inputs and two XLR mic inputs with phantom power. It is capable of routing eight channels of 24-bit digital audio plus MIDI to a Mac or PC via Rolands powerful R-BUS digital audio format and the included RPC-1 PCI/R-BUS card.
The VM-3100Pro also offers two onboard stereo multi-effects processors, giving users everything from studio-quality reverb, delay and chorus to COSM Guitar Amp, Microphone and Speaker Modeling without taxing their computers CPU. And with its built-in controller templates for Logic and other music production software, the VM-3100Pro is not just an audio routing and processing tool, but an excellent software control surface as well.
