Excellent
Alexanderius, 24.02.2020
Using it for about a year.

Pros
* The hardware design and illumination is nice
* The controls is for people who prefer buttons and knobs over the software control
* The body is solid.
* Used it to record guiitar and bass guitar (including of mic preamps usage) in studio, the sound quality are excellent,
* The software control are very minimal

Cons
* The latency with acceptable buffer size (I use USB steaming mode 5 ) is bad, about ~22/30ms, which is not acceptable for monitoring while playing via DAW. So i use direct monitoring.

Solid unit
Synthetic_Future, 25.05.2020
I bought the Roland Rubix over the Scarlett 4i4 because it has a build in compressor that "might just safe you" when you need it.

Overall the unit is rock solid. I love the way it looks. Preamps are good... but.. don't crank them. They def. get noisy over 75%. So if you want to use it with a sm7b a CloudLifter would be a must, and even then you are probably better of with a Presonus unit.

Drivers etc work well. I run it at 10ms in Reaper most of the time so that is fine as well. Monitoring on the unit is latency free and easy to use. You can also loop between out and inputs which can be useful.

Groundlift is a nice to have as well.
