Los Angeles, CA (November 13, 2012)—Roland Systems Group has introduced the Roland M-200i, a compact mixing solution for the iPad, aimed at live sound.
The iPad app is fully functional on all key aspects of the M-200i mixing and control parameters. It not only contains the typical Preamp control, Pan, high pass filters, and extensive PEQ and GEQ control, it also includes the ability to store and recall scenes, adjust compressors and gates, sends on faders, effect editing and many other controls. This enables complete remote control of a mix from any location in the room.
Wirelessly connect using a router plugged into the LAN port on the M-200i or use the Roland Wireless Connect adapter (WNA1100-RL) plugged into a USB port. Additionally you can connect an iPad using a multi-pin iPad cable included with the M-200i that not only provides wired connectivity but also charges the iPad.
The physical console features a 32-channel architecture with 17 motorized faders, 8 AUX, 4 Matrix, 8 DCAs, 24 physical inputs and 14 outputs (expandable to 64×54). In addition to the physical inputs, the M-200i can mix in audio sources from the USB port (flash key). If you don’t have an iPad available, the console is fully controllable via the built-in LCD screen along with buttons to navigate all the mixing parameters in the M-200i.
The M-200i also includes a Roland Ethernet Audio Communication (REAC) port that opens the door to expandability options, including multi-channel playback/recording, additional remote physical inputs, and personal mixing system. The REAC port can expand the number of physical inputs by connecting one of the popular Digital Snakes heads such as the S-1608 a 16-input, 8-output box connected via a single, inexpensive Cat5e/6 cable. In addition, the REAC port can provides live multi-channel recording using Cakewalks SONAR Producer.
The Roland M-200i also supports the M-48 Personal Mixing System. The Roland M-200i is making its debut at the InterBEE show in Tokyo on November 14th and is expected to be available in January 2013.
