Product Description

Highlighting two industry-acclaimed D-PRE microphone preamps, class-leading 24-bit/192 kHz converters and a rock- solid metal housing, the Steinberg UR22 audio and MIDI interface provides pure sound wherever you are. With a dedicated high- impedance switch, a separate headphones jack and phantom power supply, this portable 2-in/2-out device is the perfect choice for mobile musicians, touring DJs and everyone in between.

24-bit/192 kHz USB 2.0 audio interface

With a maximum sampling rate of 192 kHz and a resolution of 24 bits, you are more than ready to deliver great-sounding music productions.

Two Class A D-PRE mic preamps

Yamaha's highly-acclaimed D-PRE preamps deliver a truly transparent and beautifully detailed sound that is unrivaled in this class.

Rugged full-metal casing

Built to the most exacting standards by Yamaha's experienced engineers, the UR22's full metal chassis is rugged enough to withstand all the rigors of the road.

Latency-free hardware monitoring

The UR22 features latency-free hardware monitoring and an intuitive Mix knob that allows you to blend between the direct signal and the output of your host.

Compatible with all major recording software

The UR22 is compatible with all major audio editing, mastering, and music production software supporting ASIO, Core Audio, or WDM standard.

MIDI input & output

For utmost flexibility, the UR22 is equipped with a MIDI I/O to connect your favorite synth, a drum trigger module or whatever MIDI device you prefer!

Your Mobile Studio

Together with the included Cubase DAW running on your PC or Mac computer, the UR22 audio and MIDI interface is a full- fledged mobile recording studio defined through total mobility, ultra-solid build and superb sound quality.

Pure sound...
The microphone preamp is one of the key factors in recording and that's why the UR22 interface is equipped with two stellar-sounding D-PREs. These preamps are the culmination of years of development by the experts at Yamaha. The result is a truly transparent and beautifully detailed sound that is unrivaled in this class. Whether you're looking to record acoustic instruments, vocals, an electric guitar or ambient textures, with the UR22 you can easily capture any audio source.

Just as important as the preamps are, of course, the converters. The UR22 includes first-rate A/D and D/A converters that provide supreme sonic fidelity. And where others come to a halt, the UR22 begins to shine. With a maximum sampling rate of 192 kHz and a resolution of 24 bits, you are more than ready to deliver future-proof music productions.

...wherever you are
The UR22 is addicted to touring. It's small enough to be rushed from gig to gig and rugged enough to withstand all the rigors of the road. Built to the most exacting standards by Yamaha's experienced engineers, the UR22's full metal chassis is reassuringly solid. You're free to hit it with your drumstick, throw it into the tour bus or simply open a beer with it; thanks to its impressive manufacturing quality, the tour-tested UR22 is always ready to roll.

And regardless of its size, the UR22 exhibits all the core features of its bigger brothers, the UR824 and the UR28M, allowing you to realize rock-solid recordings without restrictions. Simply connect it via USB to your computer and start making music without any additional power supply, and always in class-leading sound quality.

Great Things Come in Small Packages

The UR22 features all the connections needed for pro-sounding recordings. Its two Neutrik analog XLR/TRS combo inputs with Peak LEDs and switchable +48V phantom power enable you to connect even the most valuable condenser microphones, whereas the Hi-Z switch on input 2 allows for direct recording of electric guitar or bass without the need to use an additional DI box.

Best of all, the UR22 offers latency-free hardware monitoring -- what you play is what you immediately hear. The Mix knob allows you to seamlessly blend between the direct signal of your instrument and the output signal of your host. And, thanks to the independent headphones and main output controls, you can adjust the monitor and phones level individually. The MIDI I/O allows you to connect your keyboard or any other MIDI-compatible control device, such as pad controllers, footswitches and sound modules. Two TRS outputs, ultra-stable drivers and a USB 2.0 connection complement the feature set of this professional yet affordable device.

A True Team Player

The UR22 is compatible with all major audio editing, mastering and music production software supporting the ASIO, Core Audio or WDM standard.

Plus, the UR22 comes bundled with Cubase AI, a lean version of Steinberg's popular DAW. Based on the same core technologies as Steinberg's highly acclaimed Cubase DAW, the AI version offers a comprehensive feature set for composing, recording, editing and mixing. Run it together with the UR22 audio interface and you get a one-stop solution for recording music in studio quality.

Cubase users will benefit from additional features, such as auto-setup functionality, which enables the complete I/O setup to be handled directly from within Cubase. Once your UR22 interface has been installed, Cubase detects the device and automatically embeds it into Cubase's production environment -- it couldn't be easier.

Features:

- 24-bit/192 kHz USB 2.0 audio interface
- 2 Class-A D-PRE mic preamps supporting +48V phantom power
- 2 Analog XLR/TRS combo inputs (Hi-Z switch on input 2 for electric guitar), 2 TRS line outputs
- MIDI input and output
- Headphones jack with independent level control
- Zero-latency hardware monitoring with mix balance knob
- USB-powered for mobile recordings
- Rugged full-metal housing
- Cross-platform compatibility with major recording software applications
- Best performance with included Cubase AI music software

Note: The UR22 supports a sample rate of up to 192 kHz, however, the included Cubase AI 6 DAW features a maximum sample rate of 96 kHz. The upcoming Cubase AI 7 will ensure 192 kHz compatibility on the software side and every UR22 customer will be eligible to a free update to version 7.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Audio Interface"
Overall: This Sound Card has proved to be a good performer. It has always been very easy to set up on any computers I use it with, no issues there. I have not used any inputs, but I have used the MIDI Ports. Everything works great. - Great Beginner Audio Interface but I do believe I could have gone with something less expensive for my skill level. I don't have very much experience with Audio Interfaces specifically for Music like the Steinberg UR22, but I do have experience with Sound Cards for gaming rigs and this has effectively replaced my X-Fi sound card in my computer. It's a solid performer with superb sound quality. Build quality is very good, metal/aluminum casing with sturdy knobs for DAW/Input Mix, Headphones Vol, and Master vol. I wish I could give more accurate ratings but I do not have a use for everything included with this audio interface. But anything that I rated 3 stars was because I simply do not know how good or bad it is.
