MFR# UR824

Product Description

The Steinberg UR824 interface conveys pristine, transparent audio quality through various analog and digital I/O formats, offering convenience for studio and stage alike. Connecting to Mac or PC via high-speed USB 2.0, the rackmountable UR824 boasts 24 channels with 8 premium D-PRE mic preamps alongside its dspMixFx technology for latency-free monitoring with effects, also available as native VST 3 plug-ins.

Inputs and outputs as far as the eye can see

The UR824’s front panel hosts two Neutrik combo TRS/XLR connectors for balanced microphone/line input with switchable 48 volt phantom power and Hi-Z, pad push buttons for signal attenuation, gain controls with peak indicators. On the right hand side there’s a single output level rotary knob that allows you to easily adjust the levels of the eight line output signals alongside two headphone connectors, each with a dedicated level control. The output signal to be controlled by the front panel rotary is selected through the software.

The rear panel provides six Neutrik combo TRS/XLR inputs and eight analog balanced TRS outputs as well as two pairs of optical ADAT inputs and outputs. Also on board are two BNC connectors for switchable word clock input and output. Developed by using advanced technologies to offer seamless scalability, this mixing and recording interface offers options to expand the number of analog inputs and outputs across the system via ADAT to provide up to 24 input and output channels.

The UR824’s eight line outputs offer full support for surround productions up to 7.1.
