On the front side of the UR22 interface, two Neutrik combo connectors provide microphone and line input, each with gain control and peak indicators plus an additional high-impedance switch on the second input. The panel also includes a headphones output with a dedicated volume control, a master output volume control and a mix knob for hardware-based zero-latency monitoring. The rear panel features two balanced line outputs, MIDI input/output connectors, a phantom power switch enabling +48 Volt supply on both channels and the USB 2.0 port for high-speed connectivity to PCs and Mac computers.

The UR22’s full-metal chassis contains A/D and D/A converters converters, delivering sonic fidelity with a maximum sample rate of 192 kHz and a 24-bit resolution. Yamaha’s discrete Class-A analog D-PRE preamps ensure solid sound quality on top of the stable gain required by microphone signals.

Freely available as download to all UR22 customers, Cubase AI provides a comprehensive set of tools for recording, mixing and editing audio. The UR22 is compatible with other major recording software applications and includes drivers for Windows and OS X systems.
