Roland UA-55 Quad-Capture 4-Channel USB Audio Interface (Discontinued)
The Quad Capture is a sleek audio interface with the company's brand of quality and functionality.
It features two XLR/TRS combo inputs that is equipped Roland's VS preamp.
Roland gave the Quad Capture Auto-Sens, which automatically adjusts the gain levels for optimum clip free sound. This feature makes the UA-55 easy to use with different instruments, making it novice friendly.
Although this is a 4-channel interface it only records from 2 analog inputs + 2 digital inputs simultaneously - you can't record from 4 simultaneous analog sources.
If you only need up to two instrument/vocal ports, and you're looking for a reliable audio interface, then the Roland Quad-Capture can get the job done.
One thing to note is that it doesn't have a dedicated volume control for headphones.
