Hamburg, Germany (February 17, 2017)— Steinberg Media Technologies GmbH has announced the UR22mkII Recording Pack, a very affordable yet impressively capable audio production kit.

The centerpiece of the kit, the UR22mkII USB 2.0 audio interface, features two D-PRE mic preamps with phantom power—the same Class A discrete preamps found in top Yamaha mixers—via TRS/XLR combo inputs plus two TRS outputs, MIDI I/O and one separate headphone output.

The UR22mkII is capable of latency-free hardware monitoring, operates up to 24-bit/192 kHz, and is Mac OS, Windows OS and iOS compatible.

Users can connect to an iPad with CC Mode using either the Camera Connection Kit or the Lightning to USB Camera Adapter; the unit also provides an additional USB mini socket for power source connection and is fully USB powered for Mac and PC.

Rounding out the recording pack is the ST-M01 large diaphragm studio condenser microphone, ST-H01 closed-back studio headphones, and a collection of software: Steinberg’s Cubase AI digital audio workstation, WaveLab LE audio editing and mastering software with Internet audio publishing features, and Cubasis LE, the compact version of Steinberg’s multi-touch sequencer app, Cubasis.
