ROLAND Rubix44 £195 STREET

Who knew Roland makes audio interfaces? Andy Jones tests the company’s top-of-the-range Rubix44. It should’ve been cubed-shaped, though, surely?

Contact Roland |

Roland, let’s be honest, is more famous for its synths than its interfaces. The company produced keyboards that defined much of 80s synth pop, and then (rather accidentally) defined dance music with its 303 Bass Line, which was designed more as a bass accompaniment than a squealing acid-music backdrop. Then there are the company’s drum machines and, again, the TR-808 and 909 still provide most of the beats and backbone to dance and have done for three decades. So, indeed, who knew that the company makes interfaces? However, not only is the company’s latest interface, the Rubix44, a well-spec’d and sturdy unit, it comes in at a shade under 200 quid street price, putting it firmly within reach of most of us. So exactly how good is it?
