The V-M i x ing Sys t e m - a n advanced mix in g env i r onment
The Total Solut ion from Roland
The V- Mixing System is a powerful live audio production solution built on five components: Digital Consoles,
D i g i t al Snakes, Pe rsonal M i xers, Recor d i ng, and Br i dg ing. There is no need for third - party products o r
optional cards to make a complete live mixing system.
Simple and Flexible System
The V-M i xing System separates mixing ( V-Mixer ) from the input /output sect ion ( Digital Snake ) enabling
pure sound and minimal loss of transmission with very flexi ble system configuration and setup. It allows
ef fortless add-ons for mon itoring solutions ( M-48 Personal Mixer ) as well as multi-channel live recording
R-1000 48-Track Recorder/Player and SONAR REAC Recording . The V-Mixing System encompasses the entire
live sound process expanding the possibilities far beyond a mixing console.
Easy to Set up - Plug and Play
Devices are automatically recognized by the system and the appropriate menus present themselves. With
no configuration required, simply connect the devices wi th Cat 5 e/6 cable and the system is ready to go.
H i gh qual i ty so und i s obt a i n ed

REAC ( Roland Ethernet Audio Communication ) technology is the cornerstone of the
V-Mixing System. REAC is Roland’s original technology for low latency, high quality digital
audio transfer. REAC is an Ethernet based technology that enables multiple components to
be easily integrated using lightweight Cat 5e/6 cable. W i th just a single inexpensive cable,
40 input x 40 output channels of 24-bit uncompressed audio data (including level and
control information) are transferred.

48channels of 24-bit audio. Uncompressed BWF file data is stored on
a removable SSD or HDD where
it can be edited later in the

Ensuring high quality while protecting the environment: Roland is ISO9001 and ISO14001 certified
At Roland, several group companies have obtained ISO9001 certification. In addition, in January 1999, Roland also received ISO14001 international environmental management system certification. We’re actively seeking ways to maintain harmony with the environment. (ISO=International Standardization Organization: an organization for the promotion of standardization of international units and terms. They provide different categories of certification: ISO9001 Series
certification is a product quality certification for products that undergo a certain level of quality control from the design stage to the after service stage; ISO14001
