1 Unprecedented Personalization
The M-48 enables control of up to 40 audio channels via 16 stereo groups. No longer do you have to share the same sources and in the same order as everyone else. Each musician can choose what he or she wants to listen to ‒ a truly personal mix.
2 Professional Sound Control and Quality
Sweeten your monitor mix to your exact preferences with volume, pan, 3-band EQ and built-in reverb per group ‒ all instantly adjustable by convenient encoder knobs. A Limiter is incorporated for protecting your ears from sudden and dangerous volume spikes. Based on REAC, the all-digital connection results in a low noise floor, improved musicality and crystal clear sound.
3 Unparalleled Usability
The LED indicators on the control knobs enable instant adjustment and visual confirmation at a glance, even on a dark stage. The built-in ambient mic aids in communicating with other musicians without have to remove your IEMs or headphones as well as enabling a stage/room feel if desired. The AUX Input allows a metronome or other device to be mixed into the primary sound.
4 Convenient Connectivity
Our newly developed “REAC Embedded Power” transfers both power and 40 channels of audio to the M-48 via a single CAT5e cable ‒ dramatically simplifying wiring and stage layouts. Mini jack and 1/4 inch phone jack headphone outputs are provided. Balanced TRS line outputs support wedge or other types of powered monitors. An independent stereo output mini jack enables recording with superb sound quality.

The Next Generation of Simple, High Quality Audio Transfer
REAC (Roland Ethernet Audio Communication) is Roland’s original technology for low latency, high quality digital audio transfer. Products using REAC technology are installed today in many venues and have been used for high profile events worldwide. REAC’s 24-bit, 40x40 channel protocol delivers pristine digital audio via lightweight, inexpensive and easy to install cable (Cat5e). REAC technology is immune to externally induced signal quality degradation or hums and buzzes typically found in analog systems. You have more freedom in cable placement resulting in lower cost and better sounding installations.
