Edirol Corporation North America, the exclusive distributor of Roland ED products in North America, announced the shipping of the first Roland ED U-8 USB digital studios to consumers and dealers, bundled with Steinberg's Cubasis U-8 software. The Roland ED U-8 and Cakewalk Home Studio 9 package should be shipping shortly.

The Roland ED U-8 Digital Studio is a complete PC based hard disk recording system. The U-8 intuitive front panel design includes sliders, faders, transport controls, and pan pots providing direct control of software mix and control functions. This new hands-on approach gives you the most powerful desktop recording device on the market. No more mixing with a single mouse or computer keyboard.

The U-8's unique EZ recording function provides users an easy 4 step interactive recording setup procedure. Simply press the EZ record button on the U-8 at it will guide you through the record process from selecting an input source, digital effect, to adjusting your record levels.

The Roland ED U-8 is equipped with over 130 onboard 24-bit DSP effects that are controlled through the effect window in the U-8 controller software. Adjust each individual effect parameter such as amp simulation, compression, distortion, chorus, reverb, delay, EQ, and noise suppression with 3 assignable effect knobs on the U-8.

The U-8 comes equipped with inputs for microphone, guitar and line. Optical digital in and out is included for digital recording with no signal loss. The Roland ED U-8 is distributed in North America by Edirol Corporation. Dealers can order through ThinKware, San Francisco.
