Steinberg AXR4 Thunderbolt 2 Interface

The industry-leading converters used in the Steinberg AXR4 series deliver exceptional quality audio, thanks to a maximum sampling rate of 384 kHz with 32-bit resolution.

High quality conversion is a crucial first step to a great audio production. With the AXR4, Steinberg's designers invested many months of careful research in choosing the very best combination of components, to create the ultimate analogue to digital conversion currently available in an audio interface. We have set a new standard by including 32-bit integer converters, which not only allows for a significantly higher dynamic range, but also captures every nuance and detail of the recorded signals in the most precise, transparent manner.

32-bit resolution allows you to record signals with greater headroom, to prevent clipping or digital distortion while recording. Thanks to the higher dynamic range, quiet, subtle and highly detailed signals can be boosted during mixing, without any annoying noise or digital artifacts.

We have raised the bar further with a sample rate of up to 384 kHz, allowing the reproduction of transients, the stereo image and the recording environment to be much more detailed, while the anti-aliasing filter can be set at a level where it won't be heard.

AXR hybrid mic preamps

Hybrid mic preamps, which feature in Yamaha's state-of-the-art digital mixers, combine clean, natural analogue sound with Rupert Neve Designs SILK processing.

The microphone preamplifiers at the input stage of every audio interface provide the fundamental character of the overall sound. The AXR4 features extraordinarily natural-sounding hybrid microphone preamps, developed by Yamaha, which are available for use on all front input channels. Developed as part of Yamaha's 'Natural Sound' philosophy, the choice of components, mechanical construction, circuit layout, power supply and grounding were all painstakingly evaluated and refined in the AXR4. Final adjustments were made after extensive aural tests by both Yamaha experts and eminent outside engineers, resulting in a totally new design that is genuinely worthy of 'flagship' status.

Rupert Neve Designs SILK

The AXR4 features precisely-modelled emulations of the SILK processing found in the high-end analogue devices by Rupert Neve Designs.

Recording engineers have used microphone preamps designed by the legendary Rupert Neve for many years, giving their sound a highly appealing touch of natural compression and saturation. SILK processing adds power and flair to take that exquisite sonic quality to new levels, giving sounds that tend to get lost in the mix new life and lustre.

The SILK processing function provided in the AXR4's hybrid microphone preamplifiers offers two choices, Red for sparkling energy, and Blue for solidity and power. In addition, a continuously variable Texture control musically shapes the harmonic components to best suit the sound source. The benefits of SILK processing are also evident in the way channel EQ and reverb plug-ins affect the sound.

SILK can be used on all mic input channels, either to specific channels or to all mic input channels to add depth and perspective to the overall mix.

Thunderbolt 2 with low latency

By using Thunderbolt 2 technology, the AXR4 delivers very low latency and high CPU efficiency, a high number of I/Os and two system expansion ports.
