Bellingham, WA (September 16, 2009)–Roland Systems Group has added to its V-Mixing System lineup by introducing the RSS by Roland M-380 digital mixing console.
The M-380 V-Mixer is a 48-channel console that has the features of the company’s M-400 V-Mixer, but in a compact rackmount footprint. The M-380 provides an additional console choice in the growing V-Mixing System lineup that also consists of digital snakes, personal mixing and multichannel recording.
The M-380 features rapid recall of setups, 100mm motorized and touch-sensitive faders, an 800×480 color screen, and dedicated knobs for EQ, Pan and Gain. It has up to 48-channel mixing capability including digital patch-bays, built-in effects processors, 16 Aux/Mon sends, eight matrices, eight DCAs, eight Mute groups, built-in stereo recording/playback and support for LCR configurations.
This fully digital system is built on REAC (Roland Ethernet Audio Communication) and reportedly eliminates the bulk and noise susceptibility typically associated with analog snakes and replaces it with Cat-5e (Ethernet/LAN) cable. It is targeted for corporate presentations, installations and portable applications.
The M-380 integrates with PCs via its remote-control software for additional control or sending/receiving setup data allowing users to prepare channel setups and configurations before arriving at the venue.
