Discontinued

The most powerful rack-mountable digital mixing console

The M-380 is a complete 48 channel digital mixing system compacted into a rack-mountable footprint. The complete system incorporates a digital snake and mixing console in one integrated system.

The M-380 is ideal in a number of applications

Boardrooms & conference rooms - Install the M-380 into an A/V rack control it remotely by a touch panel using RS-232. Perfect for large boardrooms with many microphones and audio sources. Schools - Install the M-380 in a rolling rack case and move the M-380 from the auditorium to the cafeteria or the gymnasium. Portable churches - The M-380 offers a high channel count in a small and highly transportable package. Event set-up is quick and easy with simple Cat5e connections from the Digital Snakes on stage to the M-380.

Easy to Use

The M-380 V-Mixer is designed to be fast and intuitive to use for the beginner or the experienced professional. It features dedicated knobs and buttons for all console functions, 13 touch-sensitive moving faders, onboard Help, large - bright TFT LCD display and Cat5e connectivity for low cost installation and truly portable systems.

Outstanding Sound Quality

The M-380 is a complete digital solution maintaining 24-bit audio from the stage to the splits and back to the stage. Preamps on stage provide the highest possible sound quality and intelligibility. Cat5e snake eliminates the high frequency losses inherent in analog snakes. Onboard digital processing, channel DSP and routing eliminate any chance for buzzes from extra cabling and analog to digital conversion losses. Built-in 24-bit recording provides lossless capture of live events. The Digital Split allows lossless transmission to monitoring, recording or broadcast positions. Bus and Main LRC return over Cat5e enables a complete digital signal path back to the stage.

Powerful Digital Benefits

Instantly change from event to event with 300 Scenes for total recall of all mixer, effect and routing parameters. Password level access provides only the relevant controls for any particular type of user. PC software allows loading/saving setups as well as real-time control. Libraries provide the ability to for storing custom channel, patchbay and effect settings. Direct to PC recording over Cat5e enables up to 40 channels of direct digital recording.

RS-232 Control

System integrators are able to create control interfaces for the M-380 V-Mixer from industry standard system control touch panels by harnessing the power of the RS-232 connection on the M-380. Users can recall scenes, adjust volume levels, mute channels or groups and control dozens of other mixing parameters. The M-380 can be discreetly installed in a hidden rack with all control happening from the interface designed by the system integrator.

Vintage Effects

Roland has been a leader in creating some of the world's most popular effect processors. Included in the M-380 are six perfectly emulated popular and classic vintage effects.

Support and management of multiple M-48 Live Personal Mixers for the ultimate in monitoring environments

For the performing musician wanting the best possible sound quality and flexibility in their individual stage mix, the M-48 Live Personal Mixer offers control over 40 audio sources that can be easily managed in 16 assignable stereo groups. Configurations are straightforward with the ability to control, save and recall all connected M-48s from an M-400 or M-380 V-Mixer allowing the FOH engineer to assist in setup and mixing. The use of IEMs (In-Ear Monitors) dramatically reduces the amount of sound picked up by stage microphones. It also eliminates feedback while providing superb sound quality for both live performance and recording.
