Los Angeles, CA, August 3, 2015 — Roland’s Professional A/V division announces the M-5000C Live Mixing Console. The M-5000C is the newest addition to the growing line of O.H.R.C.A.-based consoles from Roland that provide powerful features at an affordable price point. Measuring under 30 inches (74 cm) in width and weighing just 70 pounds (32kg), the compact M-5000C maintains the quality and many features of the popular flagship M-5000, making it ideal for theaters, portable churches, OB trucks/vans, touring or any application demanding power and flexibility in a small footprint.

Along with a 96kHz sampling rate for superb sound quality, the M-5000C has a 72-bit summing bus, newly designed, discrete analog circuitry and redundant power supply. In addition to 16 inputs and 8 outputs on the console, the M-5000C also features two expansion interface slots that can accommodate REAC, Dante™, MADI, Waves SoundGrid® and other XI-Series expansion cards.

The M-5000C supports the flexible workflow at the heart of Roland’s O.H.R.C.A. platform. Control includes a 12” color touchscreen; 20 channel faders in three groups; anchor points; DCA spills; multifunction knobs and buttons; and a user assignable section. Remote control software (Mac/Windows) that extends the user interface beyond the built-in GUI, resulting in flexible organization of critical pages or meters on external monitors will be available soon.

The O.H.R.C.A. (Open High Resolution Configurable Architecture) platform brings a new dimension of configurability to a live mixing console by providing a mix engine of 128 freely definable audio paths; open audio architecture supporting Dante, MADI, Waves SoundGrid, and REAC audio protocols; and audio delivery over video using SDI, DVI and SFP cabling. Built-in REAC ports support seamless integration from the console for multi-track recording/playback, Roland M-48 personal mixers, and a plethora of I/O box choices to fit any need, all at high-resolution 24-bit 96kHz.

The M-5000C will be available in Q4 from authorized Roland Resellers.
