The UA-25EX is a feature packed, professional-level, ruggedly made 2x2 24-bit/96kHz USB Audio Interface for Mac and PC. With its professional quality mic preamps and compact size, the UA-25-EX is equally suited in the project studio or as a mobile solution on the road for high-quality audio recording and music production.
Don't let its compact size (or body) fool you”the UA-25EX is a full-featured, professional audio interface with extras you wouldn't expect in its size and price class. It's capable of handling audio at 24-bit/96kHz resolution, and boasts newly-developed high-end mic preamps, plus pro-quality balanced audio inputs and outputs, and an integrated low-noise, wide-range power supply.
Analog Compression & Limiting
The UA-25EX features a modern analog compressor with variable attack times and threshold control for smooth capture of vocals or dynamic instruments. The accompanying limiter prevents input clipping from occurring so you'll never lose those perfect takes.
Pro-Quality Shielding with Ground Lift
With its high-grade aluminum chassis, the UA-25EX can withstand hard impacts, and is shielded against high-frequency interference from other electrical components. Should a ground loop occur, the new ground-lift function eliminates the noise by disconnecting the sleeve pin of the master output from the earth ground.

Love it. I bought a new high end Dell computer with a supposedly high end sound card and spent several hours trying to make it work with Sonar 8.5. I decided to purchase the Cakewalk UA-25EX. It took about 10 - 15 minutes to hook it up and I was recording. I highly recommend this audio interface. Extremely low latency and very easy setup. Wish I would have bought this months ago.
Cakewalk UA-25EX USB Audio Interface is alright. If I have money, I'll perfer a power interface than a USB Interface because sometimes USB gets very crazy and it doesn't quite work sometimes and it's easily broken. However, the UA-25ex will be a good experiment to those rookies who find interested in recording music.
