The World is Yours
Together with the included Cubase AI and Cubasis LE software, the Steinberg UR22 MKII audio and MIDI interface is a fully-fledged mobile recording studio. Offering easy and stable connection to PC or Mac computers, the Steinberg UR22 MKII version now adds pro-level recording for iPad and iPhone with the CC Mode and external power input. The Steinberg UR22 MKII 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.

iPad and iPhone Ready
The Steinberg UR22 MKII turns your iOS device into a full-on professional music production platform. Connect to your iPad or iPhone with CC Mode using a compatible Apple camera adapter. The power input socket supplies your Steinberg UR22 MKII 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. And with the included Cubasis LE version for iPad, you can start recording and mixing straight away, with the option to upgrade to the full Cubasis version via in-app purchase.

Compact without Compromises
With Steinberg UR22 MKII, 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 Steinberg UR22 MKII can withstand the rough and tumble of mobile music production. On tour, at home, on stage, or at your rehearsal space: take your Steinberg UR22 MKII with you wherever you need ultra-reliable recording and first-rate sound.

Reliable Recording
The Steinberg UR22 MKII is designed to give you completely dependable performance and a sound quality that can only be described as outstanding for a bus-powered USB interface. And these qualities make it an ideal mobile solution for recording gigs, choirs, concerts or field recordings. With the D-PRE mic preamp, the Steinberg UR22 MKII is equipped to offer a sumptuously detailed sound far beyond what is normally expected of compact interfaces in this price class. And despite its modest size it features switchable phantom power and thus allows you to connect a wide variety of microphones — up to the most expensive condenser mics. All AD/DA conversion is accomplished using choice components that deliver a transparent, detailed sound that does full justice to the original source.

The Power to Perform
The Steinberg UR22 MKII is designed for touring bands, gigging guitarists and mobile DJs. This compact interface fits snugly into your bag or case yet thanks to its steel casing, it’s virtually indestructible. The Steinberg UR22 MKII offers the same performance hallmarks of as its bigger siblings, the UR824 and the UR28M, such as premium-quality D-PRE preamps, switchable phantom power, a Hi-Z input for guitar and bass recording as well as 24/192 sound quality. Take it to your rehearsal space or your next gig or show — wherever you are, the Steinberg UR22 MKII provides breathtaking audio quality and reliability.

Enjoy High-Resolution Audio
The Steinberg UR22 MKII offers the same sonic precision, clarity of tone and flawless dynamics as the other members of the UR family. Hooking up the Steinberg UR22 MKII to a pair of high-quality headphones will let you listen to your music collection with a new sense of perspective. This is thanks to the incredible sonic fidelity offered by 24-bit resolution and a sample rate of up to 192kHz. Each component of the AD and DA conversion stages has been selected to offer astounding quality; simply hook up your high-quality speakers or headphones to the appropriate output on the Steinberg UR22 MKII to lend your music collection a new lease of life.

In the Club, On the Stage
Because it’s been designed to offer so much versatility, the Steinberg UR22 MKII is a perfect companion for live shows and gigs for DJs, guitarists, bands, drummers and just about any other kind of live performer. One of the most important features here is the monitoring architecture: independent headphone and output controls mean you have all your audio channels under full control. This means that, say, bands sending backing tracks to the FOH mixer have an independent headphone output for the band member operating the laptop. Guitarists needing a reliable interface for live shows can plug directly into the Hi-Z input and route the audio to a virtual amp such as the VST Amp Rack in Cubase. You can even start and stop playbacks or record loop-based tracks on the fly by connecting a MIDI footswitch to begin a hands-free recording session. And thanks to its steel casing, the Steinberg UR22 MKII can take the little knocks and scratches that are bound to happen when you take your equipment onstage.

    Happy Customer

    I already own an M-Audio Audio Interface that works great. But I needed another one that would be compatible with my iPad Pro 11 inch.
    After reading reviews, I decided to go with the Steinberg UR22 mkII audio interface. After installing and then opening the Cubasis app on my iPad, the UR22 is readily recognized by the software. I prefer to set the sampling rate at 196 KHz, but the Cubasis app limits the maximum sampling rate to 96 KHz. I am still in the middle of running some tests. So far I have not had any problems either with Cubasis app or the UR22 device.

    Good value

    Posted by ldolamore on Apr 12th 2016

    After a decade of using an M-Audio Delta PCI interface with my Win7 PC I wanted to check out USB. I was concerned about latency (none with the Delta) but interested to learn if modern devices had better sound quality. I was pleasantly surprised to hear the UR22 MkII is somewhat of an improvement over my old interface. I did experience random, short drop-outs but learned I had to use a USB port on the back of my PC instead of the front connection. After that I have had no drop-outs and the sound is clear and full. I detect no latency so that fear was unfounded. I can barely believe such a low cost device sounds this good.
