Hi everyone,

I have a Roland RPC-1 R-Bus card, and have a chance to pick up an M-Audio R-Bus card. I know that M-Audio built the card for Roland. Both have the R-Bus connector, but the M-Audio card also has a 15-pin connector, which connects to a cable terminating in 6 RCA female connections, plus another (BNC?) connector.
Questions:
Does anyone know what the OTHER functions are for the M-Audio card besides feeding the R-Bus?
Is the M-Audio card significantly higher in value/utility than the Roland version?
Are drivers (or a program needed) for the M-Audio card to work?
(The current owner has neither).

Thanks guys!

This link ought to get you somewhere.

I don't own one, but in all likelyhood, the rca jacks are for digital spdif (two-channel I/O) and stereo analog line I/O. The other connector does indeed look like a bnc jack.... that would likely be for word clock sync, but I don't know if it would be In or Out...

The BNC connector on The M-Audio Delta R-Bus card is a wordclock output, according to the M-Audio site info. Stereo analog inputs and outputs, and S/PDIF inputs and outputs are also supplied by the breakout cable from the 15-pin connector.

I guess that wordclock out would make sense, now that I think about it.
