The only feature of this unit is the relatively low output latency which is less than 30% compared to my FW16e interface at really low buffer settings and for 64 or 128 it's not even noticeable. In addition to that, the interface itself has other problems: -Not a low latency interface at all. I get much better roundtrip latency with my Motif XF fw16e interface! The input latency on this audio interface is really poor and disappointing. -It clicked several times while playing a wave file at 48khz 24bits. -The mic knobs when you rotate them, you can hear a clicking noise (not that I'll be recording while increasing the gain but it's very odd). -The worst thing is if you set the settings to 192khz it becomes a 2x2 interface which renders it useless. I don't have any of the above-mentioned issues with my other interfaces and that basically sums it up. Look elsewhere.

Rented it from L&M for about 4 months and am going to buy it now. Pros + Phenomenal sound quality (With Sennheiser HD 380 Pro) + Very easy setup (Driver install from Roland's website) + Nice knobs, LEDs, I/O terminals, and overall build quality + Phantom power for microphones and guitars Cons - A bit pricey but it is well worth it in the long run Overall = Would recommend this for anyone into home recording and audio mastering/engineering.

this is probably the best interface i've ever used, the auto-sens button works great, gives that perfect amount of gain even though i'd normally have the gain turned up a bit more... the built in compressor is a cool feature to mess around with, helps with the sound being recorded, while giving low latency i've owned a focusrite 2i2 and a alesis multimix 8 usb and the quad capture blows both of them right out of the water the only problem i've had is the usb output on the back seems to be a little loose and because of that the unit wouldn't turn on but that has only happened twice so far i'd give this interface a 9/10 due to the loose usb port otherwise it would get a perfect 10/10

I previously had M-Audio fastrack pro. It was full of issues. Ultimately I found Roland Quad Capture. It works seamlessly with my Cakewalk Sonar 8, not problems and sound quality is great. Highly recommended
