Two TRS outputs, ultra-stable drivers and a USB 2.0 connection complement the feature set of this professional yet affordable device.

Compatibility: The UR22 is compatible with all major audio editing, mastering, and music production software supporting ASIO, Core Audio, or WDM standard.

  • Cubase Download Is A Virtual Nightmare

    As reviewed by DENNIS FELTNER on 1/17/2014

    I have been attempting to use this product for over a week now. First, the original download code I received when I bought it on site at Guitar Center was already used. They ordered me a new unit from the factory. I have since been tunneling through the endless nightmare of download, activation, and licensing where no single complete list of steps or directions seem to exist. What's worse, you cannot seem to call customer support. The only communication is through 24-48hr email exchanges which thus far have been less helpful than my many hours searching for my own answers online. I have not been able to use Cubase, so I cannot comment on the software or the interface at this time. However, I am completely convinced that it is easier to steal information from the NSA than it is to download software you paid for from Steinberg. That alone is how I'm influencing my rating at this time.

  • UR 22 and Stuff at Guitar Center

    As reviewed by Tom O'Dou on 9/9/2013

    I went to Guitar Center and the sales person told me about the Steinberg UR-22 and I bought it, a ST-55 microphone, and some other stuff. The quality of the UR-22 seems a lot better than other interfaces of similar cost. The drivers for the UR-22 set up right away, whereas the Presonus system I bought and returned the day before was never identified by Windows. The UR-22 works great and the Cubase LE AI Elements 7 software that comes with it is unbelievable! I don't know a lot about music software but I am amazed. I am sure that the full version is in my future. So, I had another great experience at GC, this one at their Raleigh NC store, good friendly people, good stuff! Thank You!

  • Superb!

    As reviewed by Charles-miller Wabeno on 11/12/2013

    I'm an audio engineer, recently graduated from SIRA. I went to Guitar Center with a set mind to buy a presonus or a focusrite because I was checking them out for quite some days. Then I asked the sale man to show me a better audio interface around the same price, that's when he told me to rather buy the UR22. He was right on the money. This box is as solid as a bison, the sound is crystal clear, and it has zero latency. After putting a bunch of plugins in my tracks, I went on and did another take, I didn't have any latency issues. Contrary to the Lexicon Omega interface which was getting hot after few hours of being used, the UR22 doesn't get hot at all, probably because it's USB powered. The installation is relatively easy. I highly recommend it to all with a limited budget.
