UR-C SERIES Steinberg New Audio Interfaces

Steinberg launches a new range of USB 3.0 audio interfaces, each featuring different input/output capabilities, overall robust build quality, premium audio, and a comprehensive software bundle.

The new range of audio interfaces starts with the UR22C, the UR44C, and the UR22C Recording Pack. An additional UR816C rackmount interface will be released in November.

Used worldwide by everyone from top producers and rising bands to popular YouTubers, our UR audio interfaces have become legendary for their outstanding sound, stability, versatility, and rugged reliability. With the new UR-C models, Steinberg added a new range to the UR family which takes audio recording to the next level.

Designed for musicians and producers, the entire line-up of UR-C audio interfaces provides USB Type-C (USB 3.1 Gen 1 SuperSpeed) connectivity to ensure universal compatibility with both PCs and Mac computers, as well as iOS devices. Every model features 32-bit/192 kHz audio resolution, MIDI and delivers DSP power for using effects when monitoring audio without latency. Alongside the dspMixFx mixer that accesses the DSP effects, each interface comes with a comprehensive software bundle: the Cubase AI music production software, the Basic FX Suite consisting of effects and sound processing tools, and the iOS Cubasis LE iPad music production app.

Boasting a compact design for optimum portability, the UR22C has two balanced Neutrik combo inputs, each with a Yamaha D-PRE microphone preamp behind it. The rear panel holds the MIDI ports and two balanced line outputs. Another highlight is that the UR22C can be bus-powered by Windows or Mac computers which follow the USB 3.0 or USB-C standard.

The UR22C is the perfect audio partner for composing and producing songs anywhere. With inputs for microphones and instruments (including onboard phantom power), MIDI inputs and outputs, latency-free monitoring with DSP effects and fast, reliable connectivity to computers or iOS devices, it is remarkably versatile. Not only that but with two top-class mic preamps, 32-bit/192 kHz recording quality and high-quality components throughout, the UR22C records your performance with stunning clarity and detail. Ideally sized to travel anywhere with you, its tough but lightweight construction and included Cubase AI recording software make it a great music-making companion.
