It’s small, mobile, easy to use and perfectly capable of achieving great results. Featuring 192 kHz audio quality, this piece of gear could be just what you need to get started. The unit contains one XLR connector for microphones, a built-in discrete class A D-PRE microphone preamp and a second channel with a high impedance jack input for guitars. There are dedicated controls for each channel, a headphone output and a master output volume control.
It also comes fully equipped with analogue RCA outputs, one USB 2.0 port and one mini USB port for additional power (should you choose to use the unit with a tablet). Each UR 12 purchase is linked with a copy of Cubase AI to get you recording, mixing and editing right away. It’s absolutely one of the best value interfaces on the market.
