Being an amateur guitar enthusiast and player I love creating music I was using initially Justin iPhone and the first version of I rig to record into GarageBand. A few years later a bunch more I ricks came out all the pre-Sonus and similar focusrite etc. gained a massive popularity with their bundle packages in there different colors. One day I was at guitar center which as we all know it's a love hate thing right when you walk in the door but I was talking to one of the employees that I actually love who's honest with me I told him my situation and he said that this is what he uses but saleswise he is supposed to push the other ones but he loves The onboard preamps there so many configurations that you can do it includes midi, phantom power, XLR/TRS inputs. It comes with software that I tried to use but maybe it's a little over my head compared to something as simple as GarageBand I like to be able to plug things in and go.
Best interface in its class for the price in my opinion, although I wish it had loopback recording. Other small nitpicks are that it doesn't have Linux support, and Hi-Z and +48v are only for 1 input each. I love this little thing
This is a video by Steinberg (creator of the UR22) in which the UR22mkII gets introduced. It is similar to the UR22mkI (UR22). The only difference is the missing Ipad connection on the UR22(mkI).
Works great in the studio, and on the stage. I produce with it, and record vocals. No issues at all. You do have to go to the website to install the driver though. Only downside I can think of.
I originally had the focusrite scarlett solo, but exchanged it for the UR22 for an extra output. It works great, but the sound quality of line instruments (guitars) is not as clear-sounding as the scarlett. Hoping to upgrade back to a focusrite so I can have this for portable use
Affordable price, nice looking and even better sounding (thanks to D-Pre microphone preamps) Audio Interface with metal box comes handy when you're buliding your first home studio. Specs are great too, might be useful for many many years if you don't need more I/O.
This was my very first interface and I still use it - it does whatit's supposed to do and I never had any problems with it. It even comes with a entry copy of Cubase which I uesed for my very first demos :D
Used every day as audio out device. Used as MIDI device to control Virtual Instruments and record MIDI in DAW. At the recording sessions used all inputs - two for dynamic or condenser microphones with phantom power and two linear mono inputs to plug in mixer which gives me another two inputs for guitars or microphones.
I number of channels is determined that would be okay even more less, As a result, it is looking for a 2in/2out audio interface, it was decided to this.
