    The UltraLite-mk4 delivers exceptional sound quality, new ultra-low latency drivers and expanded DSP for studio-grade mobile audio recording.
    Superb Audio Quality
    Analogue outputs deliver 117dB dynamic range at sample rates up to 192 kHz. Renowned drivers deliver rock-solid performance and industry-leading low latency.
    Ultra-Low Latency
    New, optimised drivers for both Mac and PC deliver ultra-low latency performance. With a high-performance DAW such as Digital Performer, the UltraLite-mk4 delivers an astonishing round trip latency (RTL) of 1.83 ms (milliseconds) on OS X and 1.84 ms on Windows over USB (at 96 kHz with a 32-sample host buffer).
    Built For Studio And Stage
    Housed in a compact, aluminium-alloy enclosure you can take anywhere, the UltraLite-mk4 is equally well-suited for studio and stage, with or without a computer. As an interface or mixer, the UltraLite-mk4 provides 18 ins and 22 outs, for a total of 40 simultaneous I/O channels.
    All The I/O You Need
    Connect all of your audio gear, including speakers, headphones, mics, guitars, synths, keyboards, drum machines, effects processors and even MIDI devices.
    Large Console-Style Mixing
    Record, monitor, route and process all live inputs using the on-board 48-channel, console-style mixer, with no latency and no processor strain on your computer.
    Modelled Analogue EQ And Compression
    Further sculpt your sound with 4-band parametric EQ featuring filter types carefully modelled after British analogue console EQs. Choose between two forms of compression: a conventional compressor and the Leveler™, an accurate model of the legendary LA-2A™ optical compressor that provides vintage, musical automatic gain control.
    Advanced Extras
    Analyse and scope your audio with advanced diagnostic tools, including a full-screen real-time FFT display, spectrogram 'waterfall' display, full- featured oscilloscope, X-Y plot and phase analyser.
    Web App Control
    The software that you use to control the UltraLite-mk4 doesn't reside on your hard drive. It's a web app served from the hardware itself. This means you can control the UltraLite-mk4's on-board DSP, mixing, and device settings from the web app software running in your favourite web browser on the computer, or even a tablet or smartphone on the same Wi-Fi network as your computer.
    Solid Metal Chassis
    The UltraLite-mk4 aluminium chassis is lightweight, yet incredibly sturdy and durable, and designed to withstand the rigours of the studio, stage, and tour bus. In a world awash with cheap plastic, the cool touch of the UltraLite-mk4's metal exterior in your hands is a reassuring reminder that you are holding quality engineering and construction built to last.
