Roland to Provide REAC Recording to Users of V-Mixer Consoles

REAC is the Ethernet audio protocol developed by Roland

Roland Systems Group, a producer of commercial and performance audio/video equipment, says it will provide multi-channel Roland Ethernet Audio Communication recording via SONAR Essentials to registered users of the firm’s V-Mixer consoles.
REAC is the Ethernet audio protocol developed by Roland that is capable of transmitting 40×40 channels of 24-bit audio at rates up to 96 kHz over inexpensive Cat5e/6 cable, the company says. REAC is implemented in Roland’s Pro Audio brand products, including the Digital Snake series, the V-Mixer Consoles, M-48 Personal Mixing System and R-1000 Multi-Channel recording and playback unit.
That multi-track recording package utilizes the latest V2.0 REAC driver running on Windows 7 and 8, the company says. Simply connect a Cat5/6e cable from a V-Mixer Console or split port to the PC’s network port and capture up to 40 channels of audio directly, the firm adds.
SONAR Essentials will be available to new and current users of the M-480, M-300 and M-200i V-Mixer consoles, but it requires online registration, Roland says. Once registration is confirmed, users will be sent the necessary download links as well as the opportunity to learn more about other live recording solutions RSG provides, the company says.
That basic recording solution expands RSG’s current multi-channel recording options that include the R-1000, an intuitive stand alone, dedicated recorder/player designed to work with the V-Mixing System in any live event or production, Roland says.
The R-1000 is used as a recorder for live events to capture up to 48 channels of discrete audio all as separate broadcast wave files ready to open in a DAW of choice, according to the company. As a playback device it can be used in live events to play back selected channels to augment a live performance or as a multi-channel playback deck in a theater or amusement park application, the company says.
