Cakewalk UA4FX USB Audio Interface

The Cakewalk UA-4FX USB Audio Interface with FX is perfect for Guitarists and Singer/Songwriters and can be used with Macs and PCs. The UA-4FX is a compact and portable 24-bit/96 kHz USB audio interface featuring genuine Roland COSM preamp emulation technology and high quality effects. The UA-4FX provides mobile recording, built-in effects, and great sound in a compact package making it ideal for guitarists, singer/songwriters, or any musician on the go.

High-quality Audio
If you demand pristine performance, the UA-4FX can handle audio at up to 24-bit/96kHz resolution. Send audio in and out of the UA-4FX via its analog I/O or, for the ultimate in high-end audio quality, take advantage of its S/PDIF optical output. Windows users can use the optical output for Dolby Digital or DTS 5.1 Surround output as well.

Built-In Effects
Great audio and versatile MIDI combined with a quality suite of built-in effects make the UA-4FX an irresistible package for computer-recording enthusiasts on a budget. Why pay extra for outboard or plug-in effects when the UA-4FX provides a quality, low-latency COSM tube mic-preamp simulator, multi-band compressor/limiter for mastering, amp-simulator and distortion/chorus/delay for guitar, center cancel, reverb, noise suppressor, and more.

Cross-Platform Compatibility
Good news for both Mac and PC users -- the UA-4FX is cross-platform compatible. It supports WDM, ASIO 2.0, and Mac OS X Core Audio formats. Enjoy low-latency audio performance on both platforms!

Low-Latency MIDI
Great audio is only part of what makes the UA-4FX a star performer. Connect your synths, modules, and controllers via MIDI, and enjoy ultra-fast,stable performance thanks to FPT (Fast Processing Transmission) technology. A single USB cable provides both the MIDI and audio links between your computer and the UA-4FX.

Portable Power
The UA-4FX receives its power via USB, which means no AC adapter is required. Great for musicians on the go!

Bundled Software
For Windows-based musicians just getting started, UA-4FX includes the Cakewalk Production Plus Pack, a feature-rich recording software bundle consisting of SONAR LE, Project5 LE, and Dimension LE for PC-based recording. The CD-ROM also includes the latest ASIO, WDM, and MME drivers for Windows XP and Vista (32-bit versions), plus Core Audio drivers for Mac OS X.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Why isn't stuff like this home-grown?"
Sound: I really only bought it for the RCAs, and that it could do 24/96. I needed that kind of interface (USB) for my laptop, and wanted good quality for transferring my LPs and 78s, with a new preamp (yes, analog) I got for RIAA. So I now have a high-quality equivalent to those USB turntables you see. The UA4FX has not disappointed. I have not used it for the effects, or with a synth, but I'll get to that; give me time! Feature: As stated above, haven't begun to use it all. So far it wotks fine as a USB A-D converter. Expect to use it all eventually. Ease of Use: For what I've used it for, great. I used the Cakwalk synth stuff just with my keyboard to play the piano etc. Sounds very cool. Need to get a MIDI rig. Quality: Well worth the extra coin for the Roland name and some confidence in the quality. It will get used musically and will be dependable. Worst is the size of the switches: the sliders do not seem like the kind that last, and the positions are hard to distinguish. Value: OK or I'd have gotten a refund. Manufacturer Support: So far so good but I've never dealt with the maker or the seller. The Wow Factor: Male Overall: As long as the slider switches hold out, I'd expect it to continue. Might need another one, though. I wish I had been able to use it a year or so before buying it, but then I would have, honest! Seriously I had a hard time because other suppliers could not get me one of these, and I wondered if it was being obsoleted before I'd even heard of it. Don't do this until you have something better. Plus the "Made in China" could be better, if it were replaced with "Made in USA".

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
