Why We Love This Product!

Sweet Analog Sound, Plus Onboard DSP!

Looking for big studio sound, low-latency performance, and onboard DSP - all from an affordable interface? How about eight microphone preamplifiers and tons of expandability too? You got it! Check out Steinberg's UR824 USB 2.0 recording interface. This bad boy's got it all. Eight totally discrete analog microphone preamplifiers give you amazing sound quality and killer dynamic range. What's more, you can also hook up your line-level outboard gear or plug-in guitars directly. And that's just the beginning - the Steinberg UR824 is full of surprises!

Next, there's the UR824's amazing onboard DSP. That's right - this fantastic audio interface gives you more than just killer analog sound quality, it also lets you record with compression and EQ, without adding latency or bogging down your computer's processor. It even features a DSP-driven master REV-X reverb, so you can add life to your monitor mixes - just what singers need to perform their best. And it's totally easy to use, thanks to Steinberg's amazing dspMixFx mixer software. You can even use it to quickly set up multiple monitor mixes, again, without adding latency.

And talk about expandability! The Steinberg UR824 is an audio interface you can really build your studio around. Two sets of optical I/O let you add an additional 16 channels of extra preamps or other optical-equipped outboard gear, giving you a massive 32-channel system. You can also use these optical ports as two separate S/PDIF I/O ports or combine them in SMUX mode for eight channels of 96kHz digital I/O. When you have a Steinberg UR824 audio interface, you're ready for the future!

Killed by Software & Support

Written by Data-Bank-A from Lowell, MA, USA
February 20, 2016
Music Background: 35 years of recording.
Here's a case of a good piece of hardware killed by Horrible Software.
The "mixer-ware" does not include functions to route audio to the 8 outputs, only the master, rendering 6 out of 8 outputs Useless.
And the "customer support" is worse than useless.
There's no phone support. And when you email them, you get the response "re-install the software."
Are they kidding?
This doggy needs to go back where it came from.
