An Interface for Your Mac/PC and iPad

With Steinberg's UR22mkII, you can record studio-grade sound, right on your laptop or iPad. When it comes to audio and build quality, the UR22mkII punches above its weight with top-shelf components, flexible I/O, and bundled software that make it a veritable mobile production platform at an unbelievable price. Of course, connected to a Mac or PC, the UR22 has always been a solid interface. But now with the mkII version, you also have pro-level recording on your iPad for an unprecedented level of flexibility. On the road or in the studio, the Steinberg UR22mkII delivers.

Steinberg UR22mkII USB Audio Interface at a Glance:
  • Easy, stable integration with any recording rig
  • Bundled Steinberg software for computer and iPad
Easy, stable integration with any recording rig

For the UR22mkII, Steinberg's crack team of audio and driver software developers engineered an I/O implementation that gives you both stability and flexibility, with drivers that support ASIO, Core Audio, and WDM standards. This means you can connect to all DAWs that support any of these universal standards. What's more, the UR22mkII features CC Mode, which enables it to easily connect to your iPad and work with a broad range of iOS audio apps.

Bundled Steinberg software for computer and iPad

The UR22mkII includes Cubase AI, a streamlined version of Steinberg's world-class Mac/Windows production environment. On the road? Download Cubasis LE from the App Store for an enticing palette of recording and mixing features optimized for touchscreen operation on your iPad. Especially cool is the fact that Cubase can open Cubasis LE projects, so you can quickly capture your musical ideas on your iPad, then transfer them to Cubase for further development in your studio. With this degree of flexibility, you can take projects from concept to mastered album - all with one compact and cost-effective piece of hardware. The first-generation UR22 was a hit here at Sweetwater, but the UR22mkII ups the ante, big time!

Great DAW Interface

I owned a different brand at first, (the red colored brand) and it just underwhelmed me. I returned it and went with this unit, the UR22 Mark 2. Much happier now! This unit has MIDI connections in the back, the other unit did not. Very simple to set up, and I am now a happy man.

Gets the Job Done

As a VO pro, I gots to have me some clean, clean preamps! Also needed an easy-peasy, portable pre for my big girl mics when I travel. My Apogee Duet was legacied Price was right, gets the job done, very happy. Been working with Brian Loney and Hunter now for about 20 years - great, great service and support.

Awesome interface

This is great quality for such a low price, just what I needed for vocals and midi recording. I am pretty sure you cant find another at this price that has midi in/out as a added feature. And a bonus it comes with cubase AI to get you started. Easy install love it.

Excellent Solid Product with a Mix knob even!

This has been the best USB interface I've had so far. You can read the specs. It's built very well, the driver has been very stable. I REALLY like the "Mix" ability to select either DAW or Input, even their other units don't have this feature. Can't go wrong with this puppy.

Awesome interface at a great price!

My old Presonus Firepod finally bit the dust, so I had to bite the bullet and buy a new interface. Wow! I am actually glad I had to get a new one. I absolutely LOVE this Steinberg UR22mkII! Incredibly easy to install, and it sounds fantastic. I dare say it is even better sounding than my Presonus. Plus it's small enough to use with my laptop for portable recording. It feels very durable with it's metal casing as well.
