Steinberg UR12 - 2 x 2 USB Audio Interface - Silver

Combining an extremely compact and rugged metal casing, extraordinary build quality, and the outstanding D-PRE mic preamp plus full PC/Mac and iOS connectivity, the Steinberg UR12 redefines its class of USB interfaces. 24-bit/192 kHz converters offer you levels of audio fidelity rarely seen on an interface of this size, while the legendary D-PRE gives your recordings incredible detail, depth and dynamics. Guitarists, vocalists, songwriters and producers needing a remarkably portable interface with amazing sonic characteristics need to look no further. The included upgradable Cubase AI offers a streamlined, easy-to-use DAW with everything you need when inspiration strikes.


If you are a newcomer to digital music production, the UR12 is the ideal audio interface to start your musical journey, record your first tracks and begin a potentially lifelong adventure of writing, recording and mixing your music on a computer. Offering the inputs and outputs you need to record vocals and instruments in outstanding quality, the UR12 also includes a streamlined and upgradable version of Cubase, Steinberg’s legendary music production system. Available at a price that offers remarkable value for making your first foray into computer recording, the UR12 is built to very high standards, very rugged and ultra-portable.


Do you want to join the thousands of people successfully streaming audio online? The UR12’s loopback function lets you broadcast your audio production live on the internet. You can combine a live microphone signal into the UR12’s mic input with the audio from any recording and stream both live to the web. You could add a live voiceover or vocal to a music backing track or sing live with your guitar or keyboard input to the UR12’s input 2, with both signals merged and looped back to your internet broadcasting software. The world is waiting for you…


Crystal-clear communication is crucial for gaming when every second counts. With the UR12, every gamer looking for high-quality audio performance has the perfect audio interface to connect to any kind of microphone or professional headset*. Instead of relying on your computer’s onboard sound, use the UR12 to connect according to your needs and make your voice heard when the action starts.
