Roland Systems Group Releases Mac Remote Control Software
AMSTERDAM: Roland Systems Group
released new software and system updates at the Integrated Systems Europe event
held in Amsterdam Jan. 31-Feb. 2. Roland released a Mac version of its S-4000
Remote Control Software. It has the same functionality of the S-4000RCS for PC,
which provides setup and control for Roland’s Personal Mixing and Digital Snake
An update was released for the R-1000--a dedicated 48-track
recorder/player for live production. A new firmware feature enables playback to
be driven by markers, allowing play to a set point, and then continuation on
cue. New functionality also includes pan settings for each track when
monitoring the sound from the R-1000 itself. Additional firmware updates
support the R-1000RCS (PC/Mac software) including export track name function,
RS-232C command controls for track status, and pre amp gain control with
phantom power on/off.
A new firmware update for Roland’s S-4000 Series Digital Snake
Systems also debuted.
New functionality allows the S-4000H 8x32
digital snake head to support samples
rates of 48 and 44.1 kHz--in addition to 96kHz.
This enables the unit be used in V-Mixing System configurations, especially as
an analog breakout box. It also provides control of pre-amps of the S-4000S set
in REAC Master mode using the S-4000R or S-4000 Remote Control Software
(PC/Mac) without the need for slave equipment or the M-48 personal mixers
The update will be available this month on
