Supports 8-Channel Audio Transfers

Roland’s R-BUS format is a convenient way to exchange up to eight channels of 24-bit digital audio between R-BUS equipped V-Studios or an MV-8000. With the DIF-AT24, you can convert R-BUS to ADAT for easy audio transfers between a V-Studio/MV-8000 and an ADAT-compatible sound card or digital mixer.

Mind Over MIDI

The DIF-AT24’s MIDI In and Out connectors let you easily transfer tracks while syncing to a software sequencer or ADAT recorder. When connected to an MV-8000, the MIDI Out connector adds another 16 MIDI output channels—making the DIF-AT24 a great way to expand your sequencing power.
