The UR-RT 24-bit/192 kHz USB 2.0 audio interfaces use transformers by Rupert Neve Designs, the circuitry of which was specifically developed for audio interfaces, aiming in part to provide a touch of natural compression and saturation.

The UR-RT4 offers six inputs and four outputs—four analog XLR/TRS combo inputs (Mic/Hi-Z on input 1/2 and Mic/Line on input 3/4), plus two TRS line inputs, and a pair of separate headphone buses with individual outputs.
