Roland Studio Capture ? (16 ch interface)

Not many review so i was wondering if there is anyone here using the Studio Capture from Roland.

Right now i am using a Presonus StudioLive 16.4.2.
I need more space so i was thinking about a new interface with 16 channels.
It would be nice to have something with better converters than the Presonus.

Right now in my budget i am looking at the Roland Studio Capture or
a Scarlett 18i20 + ADA8200.

Any advice would be really appreciated.

Thanks.

Maybe a second hand RME Fireface 400 + ADA8200.
Hum so much choice.

Here is a review
Studio-Capture USB 2.0 audio interface | Reviews | Tape Op - the Creative Music Recording Magazine
I have also read somewhere about people chaining two Octa-capture's
with success.

Thanks for the info

Another question, is it worth it to buy an RME Fireface 400 in 2014 ?

Here for the gear
 

I bought a Studio Capture a couple weeks ago to mic up my drum kit. It can handle twelve xlr inputs at once and the auto sens is a nice feature. I can't say I've used any other devices though, so no real comparison is offered. I got a good "Black Friday" deal from Sweetwater and for the price was better than anything else I was looking at doing. I like the interface, think it's solidly built, and have no regrets. I'm still working on mic placement though, so I've only barely used it for recording yet.

I recently bought a Studio-Capture. I upgraded from an Octa-Capture. I needed the extra mic preamp inputs. It works about the same as the Octa-Capture so I didn't have a big learning curve. I don't like the auto sense feature. It doesn't seem to work right for me, most of the time. The auto sens on the Octa-Capture works much better. I liked the push button to mute the external studio monitors on the Octa-Capture better than having to turn the external monitor volume control down.

If I didn't need the extra mic input channels I would have sent it back.

I had looked at RME and several others in the $1500 range but they didn't have the needed mic input (built in mic preamp's) channels. I would have had to also buy separate mic preamps.
