    Steinberg's flagship audio interface, the UR824, offers a host of analogue and digital I\O making it the perfect centrepiece for your studio. When paired with Cubase PRO 9, the power and flexibilty of this system rivals more expensive options.

    Steinberg UR824

    The Steinberg UR824 is a 1U rack-mountable USB2.0 audio interface designed for serious studio usage. It features eight combo analogue inputs, each with high quality mic preamps with phantom power, eight balanced analogue outputs, two sets of ADAT optical I/O, MIDI and a high speed USB2.0 connection. Its DSP-powered dspMixFx technology boasts latency-free monitoring in conjunction with the REV-X reverb and Sweet Sport Morphing Channel Strip effects and is Mac and Windows compatible.

    The
    UR824's front panel hosts two Neutrik combo TRS/XLR connectors for balanced microphone/line input with switchable 48 volt phantom power and Hi-Z, pad push buttons for signal attenuation, gain controls with peak indicators. On the opposite side there's a single output level rotary knob that allows you to easily adjust the levels of the eight line output signals alongside two headphone connectors, each with a dedicated level control. The output signal to be controlled by the front panel rotary is selected through the software.

    The rear panel provides six Neutrik combo TRS/XLR inputs and eight analogue balanced TRS outputs as well as two pairs of optical ADAT inputs and outputs. Also on board are two BNC connectors for –switchable word clock input and output. Developed by using advanced technologies to offer seamless scalability, this mixing and recording interface offers options to expand the number of analogue inputs and outputs across the system via ADAT to provide up to 24 input and output channels.

    For signal synchronisation, the
    UR824 interface also features JetPLL, a patent-applied solution for audio network jitter. JetPLL provides the same performance as traditional, expensive clocking solutions found in the world's best professional clocking products.

    All Power To Dsp
    Powered by Yamaha's custom-designed SSP2 DSP chip, you now can enjoy the benefits of dspMixFx technology which offers latency-free monitoring together with the highly acclaimed REV-X reverb and the Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip for users of any DAW software. The Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip consists of a sidechain-enabled compressor and a 3-band parametric equalizer, which can be applied to up to 8 mono input channels or 4 stereo input channels on the UR824. Both EQ and compressor were developed to attain a highly musical sound. Its featured morph knob smoothly allows you to morph through both EQ and compression settings in combination in order for you to come up with the ideal sound very quickly just by using one single control element. The REV-X built into the UR824 is a complex reverb algorithm developed by Yamaha. Renowned for its high-density, richly reverberant sound quality, with smooth attenuation, spread and depth that work together to enhance the original sound, the REV-X features three types of reverb effects: Hall, Room and Plate simulations with reverb time and level control.

    Cubase All The Way…
    Running with Cubase, the UR824 does away with any need for additional mixing software between DAW and I/O. This means that all aspects of I/O handling and DSP management are handled directly from within Cubase. Once your UR824 has been installed, Cubase detects the launched device and automatically embeds it into the Cubase production environment. With Steinberg's acclaimed True Integrated Monitoring technology, Cubase manages all audio streams with perfect sync, allowing for a highly efficient workflow that boosts productivity to new levels. The URs feature direct integration into Cubase with dedicated windows and views that only appear when they are connected, providing full control of the hardware's functionality from within Cubase itself. This not only includes the Cubase Mixer extension for the Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip and REV-X reverb DSP effects, but almost all hardware functionality.

    …Plus Overall Daw Support
    Zero-latency monitor mixes with DSP effects are managed alongside mixes played back through your DAW of choice via the included dspMixFx mixing application, combining hard disk audio data and live streams being recorded at the same time. Each independent monitor mix can utilise the DSP capability for an outstanding sound that you will feel extremely comfortable performing to. The effects can be included in the signal recorded to the input track but the signal can, of course, also be recorded dry with no FX or bypassed completely.

    Cubase AI 6 Included
    Cubase AI 6 is a lean Cubase version tailored to record your music without additional bells and whistles. Based on the same core technologies as Steinberg's highly acclaimed Cubase 6 advanced music production system, Cubase AI 6 offers a comprehensive feature set for composing, recording, editing and mixing. Run it with the UR824 audio interface and Cubase AI 6 provides a full system solution for recording music in studio quality, used by many musicians and producers around the world.

    What's New in Cubase Pro 9.5

    64-Bit Mixing Engine: Taking Your Sound To New Heights
    Get your mixing down the line — with the new pristine 64-bit floating-point mixing engine you will no longer need to compromise when it comes to quality, precision and realism. The advanced audio engine calculates your summing, mixing and effects processing with double-precision accuracy, performing each task with the utmost level of detail, dynamics and transparency.

    Zoning 2.0: Speed Up Your Workflow
    Three new sections made their way into the right zone to enhance the flow in your work. The new file browser lets you browse, preview and import your media files in your project without leaving the window: the new metering section in the right zone shows the master and loudness meters to have a lock on your mix at any time and then there's the Control Room, providing direct access to your cue and monitor mixes.

    More Metronome
    You want the click to follow your signature shift? The new Metronome follows your lead no matter where you're heading! Compose custom click patterns with up to four different accent levels in the new Click Pattern Editor, and assign several different patterns to the Signature Track. Load your own click sounds or select one of the many pre-installed sounds. Every metronome helps you keep in time, but the new metronome in Cubase 9.5 does this so much more effectively.

    Automation Editing Just Got Curves
    Cubase 9.5 introduces ultra-precise automation curves for creating and editing smooth transitions, allowing you to go creative with musical build-ups and providing detailed automation lanes — all this while keeping mouse clicks to a minimum. One might think that a streamlined workflow possibly comes at the expense of accuracy. But no,not at all! Even the automation of tracks controlled by VCA faders will incorporate all automation data of the connected tracks and will remain 100% on target.

    More Inserts Now With Flexible Pre/Post Fader
    By doubling the number of insert slots for VST effects on each track, Cubase 9.5 expands your creative horizon, inviting you to experiment with rich effect combinations and plug-in chains. Whether you want to insert your VST effects before or after the fader, the new flexible insert section lets you dynamically adjust the position of the separator and gives you full control of your signal flow.

    New Looks For Vintage Compressor, Tube Compressor And Magneto
    Three of the most acclaimed VST processors available to Cubase have received a fresh overhaul. The Vintage Compressor, the Tube Compressor and Magneto tape saturator shine with redesigned user interfaces and workflow-oriented improvements that bring out the best in each of them.

    Direct Offline Processing: Ideal For Frequently Used Process
    Extend your creative potential with the improved workflow of event-based offline processing. Apply any kind of process offline in a VST plug-in chain for one or multiple selected events — with the feel of real-time effects — without the CPU load. This way you can keep your MixConsole clean but at the same tine have paved the way for further non-destructive changes.

    HALion Sonic SE 3 Feat. The FLUX Wavetable Synth
    The new FLUX wavetable synthesizer library for HALion Sonic SE combines top-notch sound quality and the latest HALion technology with an engaging user interface. The collection of 100 cutting-edge presets for electronic music productions includes leads, basses, pads and effects.

    Automation Range Tool
    The new Range Tool lets you edit your automations faster, easier and more conveniently. Create a selection on an automation lane and edit segments by simply dragging them without having to create any additional automation markers. The Range Tool adjusts the level, creates ramps and scales the automation in either absolute or relative mode — just like that!

    Softube Console 1 Supports Cubase
    Sweden and Germany — two countries come together to celebrate the deep integration of the Console 1 from Steinberg's friends at Softube with Cubase. You can now select tracks and control various track parameters like volume, pan or sends through Softube's beautiful hardware controller.

    Adapt To Zoom: A Clever Capability
    New to this point update, Adapt to Zoom helps you to stay in the flow in case you should be constantly zooming in and out of your Cubase project. Zooming out decreases the grid snap level so that the editing level remains effective. Zooming in increases the grid snap level for those surgical procedures at the ground level of your project. Adapt to Zoom will always adjust the grid automatically to your zoom level, allowing you to focus on your work without distractions.

    Sampler Track Enhancements
    The recently introduced Sampler Track has undergone some changes that will enhance your workflow significantly. Drag any MIDI part in the Sampler Control and start experimenting with the instantly rendered audio file. And experiment you may! You can compare the different settings you make with the convenient A/B mode, safe in the knowledge that its undo/redo capability will always allow you to return to safer ground.

    Get Inspired By Production Presets
