Whether you're looking to record acoustic instruments, vocals, an electric guitar or ambient textures, with the UR22 you can easily capture any audio source.

Highlighting two industry-acclaimed D-PRE microphone preamps, class-leading 24-bit/192 kHz converters and a rock- solid metal housing, the UR22 audio and MIDI interface provides pure sound wherever you are. With a dedicated high- impedance switch, a separate headphones jack and phantom power supply, this portable 2-in/2-out device is the perfect choice for mobile musicians, touring DJs and everyone in between.

The microphone preamp is one of the key factors in recording — and that’s why the UR22 interface is equipped with two stellar-sounding D-PREs. These preamps are the culmination of years of development by the experts at Yamaha. The result is a truly transparent and beautifully detailed sound that is unrivaled in this class.

Just as important as the preamps are, of course, the converters. The UR22 includes first-rate A/D and D/A converters that provide supreme sonic fidelity. And where others come to a halt, the UR22 begins to shine. With a maximum sampling rate of 192 kHz and a resolution of 24 bits, you are more than ready to deliver future-proof music productions.

On the Road Again
Wherever you are, the UR22 is addicted to touring. It’s small enough to be rushed from gig to gig and rugged enough to withstand all the rigors of the road. Built to the most exacting standards by Yamaha’s experienced engineers, the UR22’s full metal chassis is reassuringly solid. You're free to hit it with your drumstick, throw it into the tour bus or simply open a beer with it — thanks to its impressive manufacturing quality the tour-tested UR22 is always ready to roll.

And regardless of its size, the UR22 exhibits all the core features of its bigger brothers, the UR824 and the UR28M, allowing you to realize rock-solid recordings without restrictions. Simply connect it via USB to your computer and start making music without any additional power supply — and always in class-leading sound quality.

Great things come in small packages
The UR22 features all the connections needed for pro-sounding recordings. Its two Neutrik analog XLR/TRS combo inputs with Peak LEDs and switchable +48V phantom power enable you to connect even the most valuable condenser microphones, whereas the Hi-Z switch on input 2 allows for direct recording of electric guitar or bass without the need to use an additional DI box.

Best of all, the UR22 offers latency-free hardware monitoring — what you play is what you immediately hear. The Mix knob allows you to seamlessly blend between the direct signal of your instrument and the output signal of your host. And thanks to the independent headphones and main output controls you can adjust the monitor and phones level individually. The MIDI I/O allows you to connect your keyboard or any other MIDI-compatible control device, such as pad controllers, footswitches and sound modules. Two TRS outputs, ultra-stable drivers and a USB 2.0 connection complement the feature set of this professional yet affordable device.

Includes Cubase AI
The UR22 is compatible with all major audio editing, mastering and music production software supporting the ASIO, Core Audio or WDM standard.

Plus, the UR22 comes bundled with Cubase AI, a lean version of Steinberg’s popular DAW. Based on the same core technologies as Steinberg’s highly acclaimed Cubase DAW, the AI version offers a comprehensive feature set for composing, recording, editing and mixing. Run it together with the UR22 audio interface and you get a one-stop solution for recording music in studio quality.  

Cubase users will benefit from additional features, such as auto-setup functionality, which enables the complete I/O setup to be handled directly from within Cubase. Once your UR22 interface has been installed, Cubase detects the device and automatically embeds it into Cubase's production environment — it couldn't be easier.

  • 24-bit/192 kHz USB 2.0 audio interface  
  • 2 Class-A D-PRE mic preamps supporting +48V phantom power

      Comments about Steinberg UR22 USB Audio Interface:

      I have been doing home recording for several years. This interface really makes it easy. The built in preamps make everything sound great. Plug in a good vocal recording mic and let the interface do the rest. Not too much editing is needed to get a good sound. You can also plug an instrument straight into it. This interface will last for years and you will make many great recordings to use for demo or semi-professional purposes. The software that comes with it is easy to use and if you have your own program this interface will do just fine. This is a hands on review from Zak at Sam Ash Buffalo Grove.

        Comments about Steinberg UR22 USB Audio Interface:

        I use this product in a home studio for my DJ set, as well as a recording interface for ableton. For an audio interface in the $150 range, but still high quality; look no further. this interface has high quality mic pre amps for any home or studio recording; it records at 192khz which is simply unbeatable for its price !

          Comments about Steinberg UR22 USB Audio Interface:

          This interface is great for a mobile recording guy, or DJ or just a musician wanting to have some rough demos from a gig. The usb connection is great so you don't need an outlet for it. It has two inputs for xlr or instruments. It has no humming or distortion so you have a nice clear recording. The separate headphone jack has it's own volume control.

            Comments about Steinberg UR22 USB Audio Interface:

            This is a great little interface. There are several on the market but not many that can compare to the mic pre's this thing has. I would certainly reccomend this interface for anyone who has a simple recording setup. Clear tone and little buzz/distortion. Well worth the money.

              Comments about Steinberg UR22 USB Audio Interface:

              I wanted an interface with above average mic preamps.
              There were a couple of choices, but the winner was the UR22.
              Sweet sounding preamps.
              My vocals came out warm and clean.
