Compatible with all major audio software
The UR22mkII interface interfaces are compatible with all major audio software which supports the ASIO, Core Audio or WDM standard.
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
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
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.
MIDI input and output
The UR audio interface is equipped with a MIDI I/O port to connect any MIDI device, making them extremely flexible for studio recording. With many studios and musicians still using MIDI input devices, classic sound modules, samplers and more, the MIDI I/O on the UR242 means you can combine high-quality audio interface technology with any MIDI device to make your sound just as you want it.
* UR28M, UR824 and UR12 do not provide a MIDI connection
Latency-free hardware monitoring with mix knob
The UR22mkII features latency-free hardware monitoring and an intuitive Mix knob that allows you to blend between the direct signal and the output of your host.
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.

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.
