Universal Audio announces Volt USB Audio Interfaces

-
Universal Audio

Universal Audio has announced the Volt audio interfaces. Featuring UA sound quality, a Vintage Mic Preamp mode, built-in 76 Compressor in the 76 models, and a suite of included audio software, these all-new USB recording interfaces are designed to bring classic studio sound to Mac, PC, iPad, and iPhone users.

Record with Classic Studio Sound

All Volt interfaces feature a Vintage Mic Preamp mode inspired by the mic/line preamp in UA's 610 tube console. A UA exclusive, Volt's tube emulation circuitry allows users to dial in rich, full sound on vocals and instruments.

Volt 76 models feature a built-in 76 Compressor — an innovative analog circuit based on UA's 1176 — with easy-to-use presets for adding clarity and punch to voice, guitar, and other sources.

After registering Volt via the companion app, UA Connect, users can download the following audio production software, instruments, and plug-in bundles from industry-leading brands.

With simple audio connections, Direct Monitoring for latency-free recording, iPad/iPhone connectivity, and rugged metal construction, UA says "Volt elevates any production space or mobile recording rig with stylish UA design, built to last decades".

Volt Key Features:

  • USB 2.0 audio interfaces with 24-bit/192 kHz audio conversion for Mac, PC, iPad, and iPhone.
  • Vintage Mic Preamp mode for recording vocals and instruments with the sound of a classic UA tube preamp.
  • Built-in 76 Compressor adds clarity and punch to voice, guitar, and other sources with analog circuit based on UA's 1176.
  • Suite of audio software including Ableton, Melodyne, UJAM's Virtual Drummer, Marshall, Ampeg, and more.
  • Volt Studio Packs include Volt 2 or Volt 276, a condenser mic with XLR cable, and closed-back headphones.
  • USB bus powered with compatible devices*.
  • 48V phantom power for condenser microphones.
  • Direct Monitoring for latency-free recording.
  • 1-in/1-out MIDI connections.
  • USB-C to USB-A cable included.

*Volt 476 requires an external Volt power supply (included).

Pricing: Volt audio interfaces and Studio Packs are available for pre-order from select Universal Audio retailers, with general availability projected for late November, 2021.
