Digital snakes couple high quality preamps with REAC technology enabling source signals to maintain pristine sound through the entire V-Mixing System. Roland Digital Snakes are immune to hums, buzzes and general impedance and capacitive losses that plague analog snakes and systems. Enjoy superior clear sound, great intelligibility with minimum latency and the freedom to split or extend your audio sources anywhere. Learn more >

Cakewalk’s SONAR, when used in conjunction with REAC, provides the most comprehensive blend of live multi-channel recording with post-production functions such as mixing, mastering and delivery. Capture up to 40 channels of audio directly into SONAR all via a simple Cat5e cable connected to the network port on a PC. Learn more >
|The backbone of the V-Mixing System is based on REAC – Roland’s Ethernet Audio Communication transmission protocol for low latency, high quality digital audio transfer. Products using REAC technology are installed today in many venues and have been used for high profile events worldwide. REAC’s 24-bit, 40x40 channel protocol delivers pristine digital audio via lightweight, inexpensive and easy to install cable (Cat5e). REAC technology is immune to externally induced signal quality degradation or hums and buzzes typically found in analog systems. You have more freedom in cable placement resulting in lower cost and better sounding. Learn more about the power and benefits of REAC >|
