Steinberg UR44C 6x4 USB Gen 3.1 Audio Interface
Steinberg UR44C Overview
The Steinberg URC44C is an audio interface designed to record small ensembles anywhere with professional-grade sound quality all the while. Make use of its 32-bit converters for a wide dynamic range, and record at sample rates of up to 192 kHz for capturing detailed sonic nuances. Whether you record yourself at the home studio or want to record your record at the rehearsal space, the UR44C will come in handy, particularly if you wish to record your own band's music.
The interface offers four combo XLR-1/4" inputs, two of which can accept Hi-Z instruments, so you can record your basses and guitars direct and with fine degrees of resolution. In the back, you'll find two more line inputs, as well as four 1/4" line outputs.
Connect to your monitors via two 1/4" TRS jacks in the back of the unit, or make use of two 1/4" headphone outputs on the front panel with their own volume controls. That way, you can monitor while you engineer, and the instrumentalist can listen while recording.
The interface can communicate over a USB GEN 3.1 connection for seamless integration with Mac and Windows computers. The port is also backwards compatible for USB 2.0. Even iOS devices running iOS 10 and later are supported, so you can record straight to your iPad.
If broadcasting DJ sets, lessons, or twitch streams with high resolution is something that piques your fancy, you'll be excited for the Loopback function. This merges your recording channels with playback audio from your DAW, so you can broadcast it all at once.
Multiple effects are included, including REV-X reverb and guitar amplifier emulations. For home recording and production, Cubasis LE and Cubase AI are included, as is zero-latency monitoring matrix software called dspMixFx. The interface is powered over USB, though you can use a separately available 5V DC adapter.
