Giving you fantastic audio quality, flexible inputs and outputs with advanced DSP-based effects, it’s a remarkably cost-effective solution to all musical situations.

A pro studio at home

At the same time as you’re thinking about what audio interface to choose, you’re probably thinking about today’s DAWs, virtual instruments and boutique effect plug-ins which offer the kind of audio quality equal to top studios, even when used with a modestly-priced laptop or iOS device. Are you looking for a compact, portable audio interface with functionality and sound quality to match? Built to a truly professional standard, the UR242 is designed to offer the audio aficionado a cost-effective, mobile solution to seamlessly match the extraordinary audio quality and flexibility of today’s best music production software.

The guitar and bass pro

Whether you’re laying down studio guitar tracks or playing live through your laptop as a flexible digital guitar amp, the UR242 is designed for you as a guitar player. It includes DSP-powered, virtual amplifier FX to give you a superb, dynamic sound when monitoring, with zero latency. The Guitar Amp Classics FX suite offers four different classic tube amps with full control, the Hi-Z input on Channel 1 lets you plug your electric guitar or bass straight into the interface, while the professional quality D-PRE microphone preamps let you capture the sound of an acoustic instrument in unparalleled, sparkling detail.

Keyboards and stage pianos

As a keyboard or piano player, have you looked at mobile audio interfaces and never found the perfect one? The UR242’s mix of connectivity and portability could be just what you need. Its two line inputs and MIDI port give you parallel recording of the audio signal and MIDI data, ready for further work in your DAW also using VSTis or routing to the main outputs for live gigs, while the professional D-PRE microphone preamps ensure every nuance of an acoustic piano is captured with stunning accuracy. The UR242 is an optimum yet affordable solution for any keyboard player or pianist, wherever you play.

Latency-free monitoring with DSP effects

The built-in DSP of the UR interface provides zero-latency monitoring with effects for every DAW, including straightforward control of all routings and settings. Powered by Yamaha’s custom-designed SSP2 DSP chip, our dspMixFx technology brings many benefits, including latency-free monitoring, the highly acclaimed REV-X reverb, the Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip and Guitar Amp Classics for users of any DAW. When using Cubase, all of the advanced monitoring capabilities are fully integrated into the application’s GUI by True Integrated Monitoring technology, allowing users to control the monitoring capabilities from either Cubase or the dspMixFx application. The dspMixFx for UR mixing application allows control of all effects when the interface is used with any other audio software.

24-bit/192 kHz audio resolution

The premium converters used in the UR-series deliver great audio quality, thanks to a maximum sampling rate of 192 kHz with 24-bit resolution*. High-quality conversion is a crucial first step for any audio production and, with the UR interfaces, Steinberg’s designers researched the best combination of components for optimized analog to digital conversion. Alongside great build quality, the sound quality of the UR models is refined by the inclusion of 24-bit converters. These accurately capture the detail of every recorded signal, ensuring that the fidelity of sound throughout the recording process is maintained.


Cubasis LE included

The UR seamless integration with iPhone and iPad is enhanced by the inclusion of Cubasis LE, for creating professional audio productions in the most portable, convenient way possible. Featuring the same look and feel of its bigger brother Cubasis, Cubasis LE is especially designed for quick and easy operation, making recording, editing and mixing a breeze, and opening up a new world of possibilities for your creativity. It supports up to four audio and four MIDI tracks, features a mixer with studio-grade effects processors and also includes MicroSonic, a virtual instrument with 25 virtual instrument sounds, a virtual keyboard, sample editor and key editor.
