USB 2.0 allows data transfer and audio interface functionality with Windows and Mac-based computers. Users can connect the R-26 and use its built-in mics and external inputs as a high-quality input device with their audio recording software. Loop-back recording allows users to combine audio from the onboard mics with streaming audio from the PC.

Roland’s proprietary IARC (Isolated Adaptive Recording Circuit) has been integrated in R-26’s inputs for the built-in mics and external inputs. Its analogue and digital circuits are completely isolated with individual power supplies.
