Steinberg UR242 overview

  • 1Description

The UR242 from Steinberg is a four input, two output USB 2.0 audio interface that features dual D-PRE microphone preamps coupled with 24-bit/192 kHz converters. The portable device is housed in an all-metal chassis and also functions as a MIDI interface, allowing for connection of external MIDI devices. With on-board DSP-based effects, a separate headphones jack and phantom power supply, the unit is perfect for mobile musicians, touring DJs, or the small personal writing studio.

Audio input is available via two Neutrik XLR/TRS combo inputs both with Peak LEDs, and global, switchable +48V phantom power enables the connection of condenser microphones. A Hi-Z switch on input one allows for direct recording of electric guitar or bass without the need of a DI box and a pair of rear panel line inputs allow for connecting electronic keyboards. Independent headphones and main output controls provide for adjusting the monitor and phones level individually.

The Class Compliant mode allows the interface to connect to an iPad (with an optional Apple Connection Kit) and using iOS music production apps like Steinberg's Cubasis makes for an elegant solution for sketching out ideas at home or on the go. Additionally, the interface is compatible with all major audio editing, mastering, and music production software that support ASIO, Core Audio, or WDM standards.

Also included with the UR242 is a copy of Cubase AI DAW software. Based on the same core technologies as the full Cubase DAW, the AI version offers an intuitive feature set for composing, recording, editing and mixing. Two TRS outputs, stable drivers and a USB 2.0 connection complement the feature set of this professional yet affordable device.

    Steinberg UR242 reviews

    UR242 - USB 2.0 Audio Interface with Dual Microphone Preamps and iPad Connectivity is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service, great product! Since this purchase was my first foray into digital recording, I spent time researching comparable products and the accompanying software packages. I decided on the Steinberg UR242 because of the reviews of their preamps, four separate inputs, and the price. B&H had the product in stock when other vendors did not, and they offered free next day shipping. I received the UR242 from B&H as promised. Installation of drivers and software went flawlessly, and the UR242 works as I expected. The only drawback is the learning curve to use the Cubase DAW software, but I believe that would be the same with almost any DAW.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and very good deal Works very well. Easy to install. It was exactly what I was looking for.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good package with few cons Overall great sound quality.� Biggest problem is that the headphone output is very low.� So you will need headphone amp for serious work. Clean sounding preamps and good effects in DSP. Dspmix features could be better but for a $140 spend its good. Very portable for travelers and sturdy.
