Studio Package Pro

Studio Package Pro
Discontinued

The New Studio Package Pro - Powered by Logic RPC Pro! The Roland Studio Package Pro gives musicians everything they need to record and mix music on a Mac or PC. It includes a hardware control surface with eight 24-bit/96kHz audio inputs and outputs (SI-24), a PCI audio card (RPC-1), as well as powerful multitrack recording software from Emagic (Logic RPC Pro). This unbeatable combination makes it possible to record and mix music on a computer, but with the added convenience of a real hardware mixer capable of controlling many Logic functions. And it’s surprisingly affordable, so there’s never been a better time to enter the world of computer-based recording.

24-bit/96kHz Recording with Hardware Control

Thanks to the new SI-24 Studio Interface, Studio Package Pro users can record up to eight tracks of 24-bit/96kHz audio simultaneously into a PC or Mac. Not just a mixing surface, but a high-quality audio interface, the SI-24 is equipped with eight XLR Mic inputs (switchable to TRS inputs), plus a Hi-Z input for recording guitar. All of these inputs are sent to the computer via a single R-BUS cable, which connects to the supplied RPC-1 R-BUS Interface Card. And with 13 motorized faders, recording and mixing has never been more intuitive.

Emagic Logic RPC Pro

Emagic’s Logic series has earned a reputation as one of the best sequencing and recording programs for Mac or PC. The Studio Package Pro now includes Logic RPC Pro, an even more powerful version of this special edition software. Aside from 24 tracks of 24-bit/96kHz recording, Logic RPC Pro includes 5.1 surround mixing, level and pan automation, Emagic plug-ins and access to VST plug-ins. Using the SI-24, you can control many of Logic’s mixer functions—including track level and panning, EQ, send levels and plug-in parameters—using real faders and knobs. Recording and mixing has never been so fluid or easy!

The Studio Package Pro includes the following components:

SI-24 Studio Interface
The SI-24 provides all of the analog and digital connections needed for recording, plus a tactile mixing surface for Logic RPC Pro. Thirteen motorized faders make it possible to instantly recall mixer settings and create Automixes, while dedicated transport controls, rotary knobs and buttons allow for hands-on control. There’s even a joystick for 5.1 surround!

RPC-1 R-BUS Interface Card
This cross-platform PCI audio card uses Roland’s R-BUS audio format to send up to eight channels of audio in and out of a computer—along with MIDI data—using the supplied R-BUS cable.
