Overview

The UA-3FX offers a tremendous variety of connection options and features in a compact, USB bus powered audio interface. With added WDM, ASIO, and Core Audio support, it offers incredible creative capability with a comprehensive set of effects at an attractively low price point.

What can you do with the UA-3FX?

Even without a recording program, the UA-3FX offers some very valuable capabilities that will help you enjoy your music more.

Using any playback program, such as iTunes or Media Player, you can use the UA-3FX to change the tonal characteristics of your audio on playback. For example, the mastering effects section offers a noise suppressor, enhancer, low-end boost, and a peak limiter. Using these effects you can remove background noise from the silent points in songs, adjust the high and low EQ properties, and compress the sound to make the over all volume greater without clipping.

Using the listening effects section, you can remove sounds from the center channel, typically used to remove vocals from a stereo mix, adjust the high and low EQ, and add reverb. This allows you to make your own karaoke files directly from professional recordings.

The UA-3FX also offers a performance bank of effects which allow you to adjust pitch for gender-bending voice effects, distortion/overdrive for jamming along with songs on your guitar, chorus to add a little depth to the sound, and a delay which is well suited to guitar use.

All of these controls can be adjusted in real time and allow you to quickly make subtle (and not so subtle) changes to the music you listen to, and allow you to interact with your music directly.

UA-3FX for Recording

The UA-3FX is best suited to the recording artist on a budget. It works on PC and Mac with low-latency driver support and supports your software effects as well as those on the UA-3FX. It can function quite well with most popular DAW programs and it offers mic, guitar, line, and digital inputs.

The UA-3FX has a capture and playback option for the effects onboard. When set to capture, you can record the processed source directly to the computer. When set to playback, you can monitor the effect on the output of the UA-3FX without applying it to audio coming into the UA-3FX.

Adaptive Focus Technology

The UA-3FX also employs Adaptive Focus Technology. Adaptive Focus Technology combines powerful DSP and 2 sets of 24-bit AD converters. The DSP acts as the brain for each AD converter offering more sensitive sound expression while maintaining a greater dynamic range.

Any product shipped to RSG without a Return Authorization number shall be refused.

RSG will repair or replace this product at its sole option at no charge to you for parts or for labor within the warranty period; provided, however, that RSG reserves the right to determine whether the product is “defective” for purposes of this Limited Warranty. This Warranty does not apply to damage to this product that occurred as a result of abuse, misuse, abnormal service or handling, battery leakage or failure, damage which may have been caused either directly or indirectly by another product, or of the product as been altered or modified in any way, or if the damage was caused by repairs or service provided or attempted by anyone other than RSG or an RSG-Authorized Service Center.

In the event that RSG determines that the product requires repair as a result of any damage listed previously, accident, natural disaster, regular wear or the like, RSG will assess a fair repair or replacement fee. You will have the option to pay this fee and have the product repaired and returned, or simply have the unit returned unrepaired. In any case, a nominal handling fee plus return shipment from RSG will be borne by the purchaser for all non-warranted investigations or repairs.

SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

Where applicable, if you qualify as a “consumer” under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, then you shall be entitled to any implied warranties allowed by law for the period of the Limited Warranty as set forth above. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you. EXCEPT AS STATED ABOVE, THE FOREGOING WARRANTIES ARE IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER CONDITIONS OR WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, AN IMPLIED CONDITION OR WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND OF ANY OTHER WARRANTY OBLIGATION ON THE PART OF RSG.
