The Most Powerful Rack-Mountable Digital Mixing Console

RSS by Roland is continuing to evolve digital audio and live audio mixing. The V-Mixing System is fully digital using Roland's REAC (Roland Ethernet Audio Communication) technology to transfer audio from the high quality mic pre-amps on stage to the mixing console. V-Mixing System is the next generation in live audio mixing technology.

The M-380 is a compact and rack-mountable console with the same mixing engine as the M-400 and with REAC digital audio transfer technology. It enables a powerful and configurable mixing environment with high sound quality, intuitive operation and easy set-up for mobile applications or space-restricted installations.

  • - 48 Ch Digital Audio Mixer powered by REAC technology
  • - 18 buses/ 8 matrices can be fully assigned from the patch bay
  • - 4 dual-mono effects processors, and four 31-band GEQs/ 8-band PEQs
  • - Support for M-48 Personal Mixing System
  • - Rack Mountable Size (12U)

Powerful Mixing Engine

48 Ch Digital Audio Mixer powered by REAC technology
18 buses/ 8 matrices can be fully assigned from the patch bay
4 dual-mono effects processors, and four 31-band GEQs/ 8-band PEQs
Support for M-48 Personal Mixing System

Rack Mountable Size

Equipped with the M-380 mixing engine but rack mountable (12U)

Superb Sound Quality

The V-Mixing system uses the REAC technology to convert the audio to digital on stage using high quality 24-bit remote-controlled mic pre-amps. Because the V-Mixing System is all digital, the integrity and sound quality of the audio signal is maintained from the stage units to the M-380 V-Mixer and back to the outputs for connection to amps and speakers.

Quick and Easy Installation and Setup

The V-Mixing System uses the REAC protocol between the stage units and console using a simple Cat5e cable connection. The Cat5e connection is also immune from the hums buzzes and crosstalk associated with analog snakes. With no configuration required, simply plug the Cat5e cable from the stage units to the REAC A & B port located on the rear of the M-380 V-Mixer and the system is ready to go.

Intuitive and Easy Operation

The M-380 V-Mixer features 13 x 100mm motorized and touch sensitive faders, a large bright 800 x 480 color screen, dedicated effect knobs for EQ, Pan, and Gain, and fully recallable scene settings. Designed for all levels operator, the intuitive interface is quick to navigate and easy to learn.

Record and Playback audio to/from USB memory drive

The M-400’s USB Memory Recorder facilitates the playback of linear audio files using standard USB memory drives. It can also be used to record high quality stereo mixes of the live event. The USB drive is also used for saving/loading console us

Direct Connection with PC for multi-track recording

The M-380’s REAC Split port enables direct connection with a PC's gigabit Ethernet port using only a Cat5e cable. This allows multi-track recording of up to 40 channels using Cakewalk’s SONAR software without the need for any external audio interfaces.

* REAC Split function can be used on Standard System or Basic System.
* REAC driver must be installed on PC for multi-track recording.
* The number of recording tracks may differ depending on the PC performance.

Remote control and offline setup using a PC

The M-380’s second USB port provides direct PC connection for remote control and saving/loading presets from a PC. When a PC is on a wireless local network and connected to the M-380 a wireless tablet PC or other computer could be used on stage or in the house for any real time mixing or setup functions (using Microsoft’s Remote Desktop function).

Setup Example : Broadcast

Here's an example of the advantages of REAC's ability to create digital signal splits. Using an M-380 for mixing and a split to an S-0816 Digital Snake and/ or M-380 provides a variety of options in a broadcast suite.
