4 x 2 USB 2.0 audio interface with 192 kHz support & MIDI I/O.

Be ready to record music in studio quality on your notebook or iPad with the UR242. Engineered to offer outstanding audio and build quality in its price class, the UR242 combines choice components with advanced onboard DSP-powered FX to offer solutions for a huge range of mobile production scenarios. Plug in condenser and dynamic microphones to one of the two onboard D-PRE preamps, connect your guitar to the Hi-Z input and use the dedicated line inputs for your keyboard. Add MIDI equipment, monitor speakers and headphones, and monitor sound with top-quality FX at zero latency.

Built to impress
The UR242 offers a perfect balance between three vital factors: quality, portability and cost. First-class components and integrated DSP-powered FX engineered to fit into a small yet rugged interface at an eminently affordable price point ” that' the UR242.

Record vocals, guitars, MIDI gear and other audio equipment with up to 4 audio channels at once in pristine 24/192 quality, yet without making any compromises in terms of durability: full metal casing means the UR242 is ready for the rough and tumble of life of a mobile lifestyle. That could be between your recording studio and your hotel room, or between your home recording rig and your band' rehearsal room: the UR242 offers the features and quality to manage a huge range of production situations.

Full integration with any DAW with dspMixFx
The UR series integrates seamlessly ” as you™d expect ” with Cubase, yet also with just about any DAW out there. Just like the 19" rack model in the UR range, the UR242 offers latency-free monitoring with DSP-powered FX thanks to the onboard SSP2 DSP chip and the latest dspMixFx technology. This gives you a fully integrated DSP-based monitoring setup wherever you are and with whichever DAW you use.

When running with Cubase, the UR242 no additional virtual mixer apps are required! All aspects of I/O handling and DSP management are handled directly from within Cubase. Once your UR242 interface has been installed, Cubase detects the device and automatically embeds it into the Cubase production environment.

iPad connectivity
Connect the UR242 to your iPad thanks to the Class Compliant mode. iOS music production apps like Steinberg' Cubasis are a perfect way to sketch out ideas at home or on the go; then hook up the same interface to your PC or Mac to take your musical ideas to the next level.
