dspMixFx mixing application
Thanks to the built-in DSP chip and inclusion of dspMixFx technology*, most UR interfaces provide zero-latency monitoring with effects for every DAW, with straightforward control of all routings and settings. Powered by Yamaha’s custom-designed SSP2 DSP chip, dspMixFx offers latency-free monitoring, together with the highly acclaimed REV-X reverb, the Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip and Guitar Amp Classics for users of any DAW. When using Cubase, all of the advanced monitoring capabilities are fully integrated into the application’s GUI by True Integrated Monitoring technology, with users able to choose to control the monitoring capabilities from either Cubase or the dspMixFx application.
.::ADVANTAGES OF USING THE UR44::.
While your project studio is unlikely to need a huge analog mixing desk or dozens of inputs, you rightly demand outstanding audio quality and the ability to record a wide range of instruments, microphones and other audio sources. You want phantom power for condenser microphones, MIDI connectivity for external hardware and know you can get the most from your mix by the ability to connect several pairs of monitors for checking on different speaker combinations. And what about DSP FX with no latency for recording guitars? The UR44 delivers all this, letting you integrate all your gear with one compact, portable interface.
The all-round solution for multi-role musicians
As a musician today, you need to be versatile. You might be recording your band in a rehearsal room one day, then helping out on a friend’s album production, DJing, playing audio backing tracks for a live gig or setting up a home studio. Then you might need a portable interface to record an idea that’s been bouncing around in your head all day while you are travelling or on tour. With its perfect balance of inputs, outputs, portability, outstanding audio quality and control, the UR44 is the ideal interface for the modern, multi-role musician.
Backing the band
Audience expectations have never been higher, which is why these days many performers augment their live sound with pre-produced backing tracks, perhaps also using MIDI to trigger additional equipment like stage lighting. You can be part of this performing revolution with the UR44, which offers an ultra-flexible, reliable and portable solution for live shows. With up to two separate stereo mixes for the house system and performers, MIDI I/O for controlling lighting equipment and independent headphone outputs allowing someone to be in charge of cueing the next song, the UR44 is ideally suited to being the heart of your live performance.
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.
The built-in DSP of the UR interface provides zero-latency monitoring with effects for every DAW, including straightforward control of all routings and settings. Powered by Yamaha’s custom-designed SSP2 DSP chip, our dspMixFx technology brings many benefits, including latency-free monitoring, the highly acclaimed REV-X reverb, the Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip and Guitar Amp Classics for users of any DAW. When using Cubase, all of the advanced monitoring capabilities are fully integrated into the application’s GUI by True Integrated Monitoring technology, allowing users to control the monitoring capabilities from either Cubase or the dspMixFx application. The dspMixFx for UR mixing application allows control of all effects when the interface is used with any other audio software.
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.
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
