R-BUS/ADAT Interface Box


The DIF-AT24 Interface Box easily converts the 8-channel R-BUS audio format found on compatible V-Studios and MV-Series products to the popular ADAT format. As such, this 1/3 rackmount box is ideal for transferring audio between your Roland gear and a lightpipe-compatible audio card or digital mixer. And with MIDI built-in, the DIF-AT24 can also be used to expand the MV-8000/-8800’s available MIDI outputs.

Supports 8-Channel Audio Transfers

Roland’s R-BUS format is a convenient way to exchange up to eight channels of 24-bit digital audio between R-BUS-equipped V-Studios or an MV-8000/-8800. With the DIF-AT24, you can convert R-BUS to ADAT for easy audio transfers between a V-Studio or MV-8000/-8800 and an ADAT-compatible sound card or digital mixer.

Mind Over MIDI

The DIF-AT24’s MIDI In and Out jacks let you easily transfer tracks while synching to a software sequencer or ADAT recorder. When connected to an MV-8000 or MV-8800, the MIDI Out jack adds another 16 MIDI output channels—making the DIF-AT24 a great way to expand your sequencing power.
