Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "UR824 Cost Effective and Great Quality"
Overall: I've been working with an M-Audio ProFire 2626 for quite some time. It's been a somewhat painful experience from temperamental FireWire (not every chipset works wit the interface), to lack of driver updates, etc.Recently, I decided to reevaluate what's available in audio interfaces. My requirements were as follows: 1. Must have stable drivers for Windows 8. 2. Must work well with Cubase. 3. Must support at least a 96k sample rate. 4. Must have low latency. 5. Prefer USB over FireWire for ease of setup. 6. Would like zero latency monitoring capability. 7. Prefer interfaces that can retain mix and other settings after powering off. 8. Would like to be able to expand to at least 16 inputs by cascading units. 9. Price. The Steinberg UR824 has met every one of those needs and more besides. It also has a built-in DSP chip that implements a hardware reverb with sends for each channel and a common return. Each channel also has it's own DSP-based parametric EQ and compressor called the Sweetspot Morphing channel strip. In addition, there are separate native software versions of both the reverb and channel strip provided with the unit. With the $200 rebate that Steinberg is currently running, this is an exceptional deal. I highly recommend upgrading the Firmware on the unit. Doing so will give you access to more sample rates. One warning though, the updater should be run only with the interface plugged directly into your computer and no other devices hooked up to the USB ports. It can be a little temperamental otherwise.
