In this 2 part podcast,will take a look at the roland TRI-CAPTURE hardwhere audio interface.
In part1, we take a look at the units im-puts, nobs, and buttons, and describe what they all can be used for.



  1. I need to correct something said in this podcast. Applying phantom power to a microphone which does not need it is definitely not guaranteed to do it any damage at all and there isn’t nearly enough power involved to damage a microphone cable. It is, i think, possible to damage an unbalanced microphone with phantom power, although I’ve never witnessed it, but as far as I know, if a microphone is balanced, phantom power won’t do any harm.
    Otherwise, thanks for an informative introduction to this unit.
