Housed in a compact, road-tough metal case, the new DUO-CAPTURE EX is perfect for both home recording and mobile production. The rugged USB audio interface is outfitted with a pair of VS Preamps, which feature the same professional components used in Roland's high-end digital mixers. Two combo XLR/TRS inputs are provided, including a Hi-Z input for connecting a guitar or bass directly. The three-way power supply offers the ultimate in operational convenience, allowing you to power the unit from the computer's USB bus, batteries, or an optional AC adapter. Powerful and flexible, the DUO-CAPTURE EX is compatible with Windows, Mac OS X, and iO.
DUO-CAPTURE EX boasts two premium-grade, digitally controlled mic preamps (VS Preamps) made from the same high-grade components as the preamps found in Roland's V-Studio 700 and M-400 digital mixer. Two XLR/TRS combo inputs are provided for the preamps, plus independent phantom power for each channel.
Low-Noise Power Supply
One of the DUO-CAPTURE EX's key "behind-the-scenes" features is its low-noise, wide-ranging power supply. Designed to deliver a clean, balanced input and output, it provides a reliable foundation for any professional audio application or environment. When powered by the computer's USB bus, the DUO-CAPTURE EX internally regenerates the incoming power, ensuring the ideal voltage for optimal sound quality and efficiency in mobile environments.
For Home Recording
The DUO-CAPTURE EX is equipped with two XLR/TRS inputs (with phantom-power support for condenser microphones), plus a Hi-Z input switch for direct connection of an electric guitar or bass. The DUO-CAPTURE EX is compatible with all major computer platforms, including WDM/ASIO (Windows), Core Audio (Mac), and even iOS for the iPad.
For Mobile Musicians
Perfect for traveling musicians, the DUO-CAPTURE EX is compact and solidly housed in an aluminum case. It easily fits in a backpack, and weighs just one pound (440 grams). For the ultimate in mobile convenience, the DUO-CAPTURE EX can be powered via your computer's USB bus, two AA batteries, or an AC adapter (sold separately). Its premium preamps and low-noise design enable pro-quality results anywhere you record, indoors or out.
Turn your iPad into a professional recording device by connecting it to the DUO-CAPTURE EX*. Record vocals, guitar, keyboard, or other instruments with superb quality through the DUO-CAPTURE EX into the iPad using your favorite iOS apps. Additionally, the DUO-CAPTURE EX can function as a USB-MIDI interface to control iOS apps with electronic instruments such as MIDI keyboards, V-Drums, etc.

Comments about Roland UA-22 DUO CAPTURE EX USB Audio/MIDI Interface:
This one works ! it's the first compact easy to use and great sound there is only a small issue of the thing being battery powered the power only lasted me about 1 min before I get an error message on my ipad stating this unit does not have the power to run this app. and the batteries that came with were good so I would get the power adapter than it works great also install the software , a must.. If your using it with computer power , no problem . this is a solid interface I would have given 5 stars if not for the battery power issue.
Comments about Roland UA-22 DUO CAPTURE EX USB Audio/MIDI Interface:
THIS ONE ACTUALLY WORKS! the sound Is clear and as loud as you want it. easy to hook up and use (lot less trouble than the less expensive midi rig) I bought it to expand my studio W /synth apps .and THAT IT DID! It runs them with authority. It also has a lot of other computer audio features which would be more attractive to studio/vocal fans. My only tiff( and its a little one) the apple camera connect adapter usb plug keeps coming off on occasion I did a little trick with a rubber band to keep it on. I think a newer ipad with lighting plug and adapter will take a better hold. aside from that this is a solid piece and should be required for all IPAD USERS.
