No-fuss interface for latency-free recording on Macs, PCs & iPads
When it comes to computer-based recording, everybody sweats the big stuff: the guitars, the hard drives and the software. But if you’re wondering why the process is giving you such a headache, maybe it’s because you’ve neglected the small stuff – like a top-quality interface. Roland’s UM-One Mk2 is a no-fuss MIDI interface that gives modern musicians a compact and simple way to connect electronic music gear to their computers. For flexibility, it’s compatible with Macs, PCs and iPads, and for convenience, bus-powered USB operation means it doesn’t need batteries. The best news? If you’ve had the frustration of hearing a split-second delay in your headphones as you record – otherwise known as latency – the UM-One Mk2 will transform your experience with high-performance data processing that ensures ultra-tight tracking.
A no-fuss interface that banishes latency
Standard sound cards and inferior audio interfaces can suck the joy from computer production by causing infuriating delays in data transfer. Unlike those, the UM-One Mk2 features Fast Processing Technology (FPT), meaning that MIDI data is transferred at rapid speed and high-resolution. The upshot is that your recordings are seamlessly captured as you play them, with no delays, jitters or skipping of triggers.
Works with Macs, PCs and tablets
Let’s say you create your music on a Mac at home and a PC laptop on the move. No problem: the UM-One Mk2 is compatible with both operating systems. Even your iPad is welcome at the party, hooking up via the Apple Camera Connection Kit and allowing you, for example, to use your electronic V-Drums kit with your Garage Band app.
Won’t disrupt your recording sessions
When inspiration strikes, you don’t want a fiddly interface breaking your flow. The UM-One Mk2 couldn’t be simpler. It connects your musical e-gear to your chosen computer via simple one-in/one-out MIDI cables, has helpful twin data indicator LEDs and features USB bus-powered operation that means you’ll never have sessions interrupted by a hunt for batteries.
