Ultra-rugged build
The robust metal casing and exceptional build quality of UR interfaces makes them rugged enough to withstand all the rigors of the road. Whether you are location recording or just moving your gear from one place to another, you don't need to worry about the risk of damage to your interface. They are rugged enough to ensure that, when you are ready to record, they will work perfectly every time.

High speed USB 2.0
UR interfaces feature high speed USB 2.0, which provides fast, reliable and seamless connectivity to Mac and PC computers, iPads and iPhones. Together with the enhanced low latency of our SSP2 chip and the latest drivers, the UR series gives you peace of mind wherever you are recording.

24-bit/192 kHz audio resolution
The premium converters used in the UR-series deliver great audio quality, thanks to a maximum sampling rate of 192 kHz with 24-bit resolution*. High-quality conversion is a crucial first step for any audio production and, with the UR interfaces, Steinberg’s designers researched the best combination of components for optimized analog to digital conversion. Alongside great build quality, the sound quality of the UR models is refined by the inclusion of 24-bit converters. These accurately capture the detail of every recorded signal, ensuring that the fidelity of sound throughout the recording process is maintained.
*UR28M only supports up to 96 kHz

Latency-free hardware monitoring with switch
The UR12 features latency-free hardware monitoring with an easy-to-use monitor source switch that lets you choose between the direct signal and the output of your host application.

Class-A D-PRE mic preamps
The UR series features Yamaha’s highly acclaimed D-PRE preamps, offering recording quality unmatched in this price class. D-PRE preamps deliver beautifully transparent and detailed sound, with remarkably detailed high end, rich low frequencies and exceptional dynamic response. Praised by industry professionals and media alike, D-PRE is a very special, class-leading preamp. And to faithfully capture and replay that warm, transparent sound, UR interfaces feature AD and DA conversion stages with up to 24-bit/192 kHz resolution*.
*UR28M only supports up to 96 kHz

Compatible with all major audio software
The UR12 interface is compatible with all major audio software which supports the ASIO, Core Audio or WDM standard.

iOS ready via CC Mode
You can combine UR units with an audio application like Steinberg’s Cubasis for iPhone and iPad, giving you a fully mobile audio recording solution. All UR interfaces can switch to Class Compliant (CC) mode* when connected to an iOS device, providing an effortlessly intuitive, ultra-portable production experience.
* UR28M, UR824, UR44 need to be switched to CC mode manually.

Loopback function for streaming
The Loopback function of the UR interfaces offers an easy way to stream performances live to the internet. Often used by hosts of live online broadcasts, when the function is active, incoming audio signals to the UR (such as microphone, guitar or line source) are merged with the signal coming from audio playback software like Cubase or another DAW inside the computer. The merged signal will then be sent back to the computer for online streaming via your software of choice. And with the onboard DSP effects of some of the UR interfaces* you can tweak your sound, for example adding some reverb when doing online karaoke.
* Onboard DSP effects are not available on the UR12 and UR22mkII.

WaveLab Cast included
WaveLab Cast makes your podcast or video sound spectacularly clear and intelligible. Use sound correction tools to remove unwanted noise or hum, rearrange different parts of an interview and add your favorite background music, which is automatically lowered when speech is detected on the voice track. The easy-to-use Inspector Channel Strip allows you to EQ your audio, enhance the presence of speech using the Voice Exciter or give it more punch using the compressor. WaveLab Cast connects you directly with five different podcast directories, including Spreaker, Podbean and Soundcloud. Export your audio in various formats, including MP3, WAV and AAC.

Cubase AI
Based on Steinberg’s award-winning advanced music production system Cubase Pro, Cubase AI is a powerful, one-stop music software solution for studio-quality recording. Combining audio and MIDI recording, editing, mixing and scoring in a single, integrated software package, Cubase AI is the perfect entry into the world of computer-based music production. Featuring Steinberg’s advanced audio engine, flexible routing and full automatic delay compensation, it supports 48 MIDI, 16 instrument, 32 audio tracks and 16 physical inputs. Cubase AI comes with a range of high-quality audio effect processors, the HALion Sonic SE workstation instrument and MixConsole for a stellar mixing experience.

Cubasis LE
The UR seamless integration with iPhone and iPad is enhanced by the inclusion of Cubasis LE, for creating professional audio productions in the most portable, convenient way possible. Featuring the same look and feel of its bigger brother Cubasis, Cubasis LE is especially designed for quick and easy operation, making recording, editing and mixing a breeze, and opening up a new world of possibilities for your creativity. It supports up to four audio and four MIDI tracks, features a mixer with studio-grade effects processors and also includes MicroSonic, a virtual instrument with 25 virtual instrument sounds, a virtual keyboard, sample editor and key editor.
