Steinberg announces UR22 - Portable Audio Interface (USB)

Steinberg Media Technologies has announced the upcoming release of their latest audio interface. The UR22 features 192 kHz audio quality, USB 2.0 connectivity, MIDI input/output alongside two combo inputs with D-PRE microphone preamps and line outputs. Its portable size and solid build make it an ideal choice for mobile setups and small-spaced recording studios.

"Together with Yamaha, we aimed at designing a compact audio interface with sufficient connectivity plus a build and audio quality that will simply blow you away. The UR22 is the result of this development. And by combining the UR22 with the Cubase AI music production software you get an eminently professional recording environment at an affordable price," commented Stefan Schreiber, hardware product marketing manager at Steinberg.

On the front side of the UR22 interface, two Neutrik combo connectors provide microphone and line input, each with gain control and peak indicators plus an additional high-impedance switch on the second input. The panel also includes a headphones output with a dedicated volume control, a master output volume control and a mix knob for hardware-based zero-latency monitoring. The rear panel features two balanced line outputs, MIDI input/output connectors, a phantom power switch enabling +48 Volt supply on both channels and the USB 2.0 port for high-speed connectivity to PCs and Mac computers.

The UR22's full-metal chassis houses studio-grade converters, delivering pristine sonic fidelity with a maximum sample rate of 192 kHz and a 24-bit resolution. Yamaha's discrete Class-A analog D-PRE preamps ensure sound quality on top of the stable gain required by microphone signals.

Freely available as download to all UR22 customers, Cubase AI provides a comprehensive set of tools for recording, mixing and editing audio. The UR22 is compatible with other major recording software applications and includes drivers for Windows and OS X systems.

Features at a glance:

  • 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.

  • Zero-latency hardware monitoring with mix balance knob.
