Together with the included Cubase AI and Cubasis LE software, the UR22mkII audio and MIDI interface is a fully-fledged mobile recording studio. Offering easy and stable connection to PC or Mac computers, the MKII version now adds pro-level recording for iPad with the CC Mode and external power input. The UR22mkII offers total mobility, ultra-solid build quality and incredible sound characteristics for its price class, covering all aspects of recording and production in small studio environments as well as mobile production situations.
Connect To Cubase, Or Directly To Any DAW
UR22mkII is compatible with all audio editing, mastering and music production software that support the ASIO, Core Audio or WDM standards. Installing the driver is very simple, with an assistant to guide you through every step of the process. With installation complete, the UR22mkII now seamlessly integrates into your favourite DAW, putting its flexible I/O options at your disposal.
Cubase owners will benefit from additional features, such as the auto-setup functionality, which enables the complete I/O setup to be handled directly from within Cubase. Your UR22mkII is detected automatically by Cubase and embedded into your production environment.
UR22mkII includes Cubase AI, a lean version of Steinberg's advanced music production system. Based on the same core technologies as Steinberg's highly acclaimed Cubase DAW, the AI version offers a comprehensive feature set for composing, recording, editing and mixing. Run it together with the UR22mkII audio interface and you get a one-stop solution for recording music in studio quality.
With full iPad connectivity via the CC Mode and external power input, the UR22mkII combines with the included Cubasis LE software — a streamlined version of the highly acclaimed Cubasis iOS app — to form a full-on mobile recording and production solution.
The D-PRE: Beyond Precision
The virtues of the Yamaha-designed D-PRE have been sung by industry veterans and trade press alike since the introduction of this class-leading preamp. A sumptuously detailed high-end, immaculate dynamic response and a rich, rounded low-end sound are the hallmarks of this very special preamp. The UR22mkII features two D-PRE preamps, each offering stellar recording quality unmatched in this price class. And to faithfully capture and replay the warm, transparent sound of the D-PRE, the UR22mkII features AD and DA conversion stages with up to 24-bit, 192 kHz resolution.
Compact Without Compromises
With UR22mkII, you're ready for a huge range of recording and production scenarios, even when you're on the move. Record vocals, guitars and other audio equipment with up to two audio channels in pristine 24/192 quality while simultaneously recording MIDI signals. And you won't have to carry it everywhere on a silk cushion: its sturdy construction and steel casing means the UR22mkII can withstand the rough and tumble of mobile music production. On tour, at home, on stage, or at your rehearsal space: take your UR22mkII with you wherever you need ultra-reliable recording and first-rate sound.
The UR22mkII turns your iPad into a full-on professional music production platform. Connect to your iPad with CC Mode using either the Camera Connection Kit or Lightning to USB Camera Adapter. The power input socket supplies your UR22mkII with the electrical voltage needed to run professional equipment such as condenser microphones requiring +48 V phantom power by letting you plug in a USB power adapter or a USB battery pack.
