Roland also announced the new R-1000 48 channel hard disk recorder. It interfaces perfectly with any of their V-Mixers, and with anything else with MADI using the S-MADI Bridge. They figured out a pretty great way to do virtual soundcheck with it as well. It’s a bit on the pricey side at around $5K (list), but given the high level of integration and ease of use, it may well be worth it as part of a V-Mixing system.
