Gearank Recommendation

The Rubix 44 appeared on our recommended list for USB Audio Interfaces from December 2019 until October 2020.


For many people, Roland isn’t the first name to come to mind when deciding to get a USB Audio Interface. However, Roland released the Rubix series in 2018, to much critical acclaim.

It includes 4 mic preamps via 4 XLR/1/4″ combo jacks and built-in compression to catch sudden peaks while recording.

The Roland Rubix 44 is another pebble in the pond that is USB Audio interfaces. While it does what so many others do, it adds compression, a great layout and solid build quality into the mix at not a lot of cash. Get it if you want an audio interface for live performance recording and need onboard compression preventing clipping.
