Roland HS-5 Session Mixer Gives Up To 5 Users Custom Mixes


Roland today announced the HS-5 Session Mixer, a digital mixer and recording interface that lets up to five musicians play and record together, with individual headphone mixes.

Players have individual hands-on control of their personal mix, plus access to reverb and COSM effects for guitar, bass, and vocals. Bands can capture stereo recordings directly to a USB thumb drive, or connect the HS-5 to a computer via a USB cable and record each channel to individual tracks in a DAW.

Additionally, each musician’s personalized settings can be saved for instant recall, providing quick setup for future rehearsals and recording sessions.


  • Performer-friendly digital mixer with high-quality sound and USB
  • Up to five musicians can rehearse or jam while monitoring with headphones
  • Independent control of the monitor mix for each performer
  • COSM amp modeling plus vocal effects and built-in reverb
  • Record stereo mixes to a USB thumb drive
  • Connect to a computer via USB for multitrack recording in a DAW

Here’s the official intro video:

Official pricing and availability info is to be announced. Full specifications are available at the Roland site.

  1. Wow! What a total JamHub ripoff. I’ll bet the folks at JamHub are not too happy right now with Roland. But this thing could be cool if the price is the same as a JamHub, but it looks like a nightmare to control. Give me easy to use knobs every day.
