Edirol UR-80
Great features, it's a audio and MIDI interface and MIDI controller in one.Good quality considering the price.

Price paid: €400


It's easy to use and comes with free software to create your own control maps.


It's steadily built, not heavy but I never had any problems.


The internal audio interface isn't that great, but good for beginners.

I love it, I stopped using the audio interface when I bought my Mackie Onyx 1220 with firewire. But I'm still using the MIDI interface and controller functions and never experienced any problem.Works great!

Midi Control 96 24 + Sound card


Automatic installation although it faile to install the audio drivers CAN noon, everything is done alone.
The Handbook is perfect for every Retailer squenceur known.


Drivers no problem, the update is available on the Roland site, the last fixation was a while ago. Pleased to problem. 7ms latency on average but can go to 5ms.


I use it for over 3 years. I am not tired of his capabilities. Particularly in terms of transport, very practical and Job title perfectly for me on Reasn and Ableton mainly.

I would do this choice for the multiplicity of types of I / O, MIDI, transportation, at least for the preamps.

See above!

My config: 3GHz MEDION Portable / DDRAM 512 / Dual Screen


Fast installation / Good compatibility with Windows XP Sp1
Manuel super


Drivers not stable at all, I have to reinstall every boot
With Cubase SX, the ACCOUNTING is laborious, but stable APRS have found the trick.


I used to beginners in recording voice with an electret was happening but with a SM58, no level in pramp but the noise function is acceptable.
Then went to the live recording Stereo and wham! the slap ... the usb does not cash, and there are audible in the jumps tracks, etc ... klick
APRS, the studio track by track ... same prob, ss all evening! dgout

The most particular feature is that all intrrssante is assignable and that it is super convenient to have one for Cubase tlcommande!

The report price is quality glove! I chop the NEW 220 euros in Germany ...

So I strongly deprecated if you want to own the recording, but for the price, it was suspecting a bit!

I do not remake the same choice! shame ...

Features: Compilation + Midi Sound Card, interesting when one starts in computer music, everything is there.

Usage: Live, control software (vegas, cubase ...), recording.

INSTALLATION: risky: sound card + noon DRIVR 2, 2 x more fuck.
Once c has c'estf ok. Failure to load one of two made themselves
only 2 or 3 times for 6 months. Reboot and c ok.
Sound: clean output, input a bit unprofessional.
PM: nickel, preseeding very well but to restrict the use (after you are not obliged to use it ...), s and stuff which I do not use yet.

PRICE? c the console that you'll take plaque on the wall and make you enjoy that what we say, I pecho 200 euros and I have better than 33 ucr rotten
and a sound card and more ultra rich connections with output more than drinking
a recording rate up to 96 (three choices: 44.1,41,96).

after registration for the song, will reach ca
not studio quality c no way.
But it can make good prod ... by traffickers.
C midi of course not self-sufficient but ca gere well
bcr 2000 with more you should be king of the world.

if cta re ... and that I had the same wallet, of course.
With more than often I pecho a sound card as most proud
and just as rich in socket (2 xlr, jack, RCA, digital optic ...)
but it exists? behringer and noon if there is no better.

C a great success for a combo like that should not be abused. After be
know how to manage your PC.


Manuel + + +


Drivers stable at 85%, not stable ...
never tried the updates
running ok on: reason
Latency: Adjustable and very correct (dependance pc)
REASON FOR A BOMB IN GEN and soft !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Really just a C: 2I/2O so the minute entry output, quiet, quality ok, preamp
small but good purpose and not c c not bad for the same level qd, and
mechant control surface.
Reason for it is set to MIXER! C enormous, suddenly have the impression t
+ Or-serious mastering with Reason ... Finally, brief version of the hardware mixer, c is that c is ca Reason for that is good.


6 months of use

I do it again this choice for a matter of money, no experience.

No problem for installation, compatible with all apps that I used currently.

For cons, the control surface is configured for boring trs softs less ambitious. It is really basic paramtre for Cubase, ProTools and other ...

The manual ... frankly, there's really much more boring but there's even more explicit when


There are two big problems with c'te machine:

The first is that there is no possibility to use the 96khz in rerecording, which in-home studio, is frankly a handicap if you want to have an acceptable quality of his.

The deuxime, I knew that by buying it, is the non-motorized faders ... I dropped the case, I find my good old mouse automation, so it galre ... Unless the Russians the first draft. Anyway ...


I use it for more than 2 years, despite my Previous criticism has remained a product of quality and a good value qualitprix trs.

I would say its main default are non-motorized faders, the 96khz used very little in this case prcis, and ... the pre-amps that are not really transparent.

The quality of c'te machine are its compatibility (audio), the transport section (really useful), and that it impresses the girls to see a machine with a few buttons and faders ... j'dconne. There's still stuff frankly useful and well made (see the Technical Specifications for this), and especially its price.

Edirol UR-80
Detailed in "detail-General" (Back).

Rich and easy connectivity.
Programming commands effective and varied!


Installing Windows 98 2nd Edition impossible (even after updating the system plug and play, and a good test 10aine hours ...)
Grrrrraaaaaaaa!! Should I take Mr Bill or UR80 ?.... Still, the UR-80 should work!
Test with another PC with Win 98, 2 nd failure.
Notte -> 0

I therefore turn on XP pro, oh surprise, successfully installed in less than 5 minutes. The manual is not helpful, everything is done alone!
Notte -> 9

Overall, to do with the vagaries of Windows !!!!! -> 4


For now, no limit to the number of tracks played at the same time (I have not exceeded 22).
Latency is fine with Cubase SX (still not as good with my Delta 44), and Midi control system is effective.

No problem either when I connect my MIDI keyboard on it, stepping Nickel works ....


- Update my opinion -

Use for 5 weeks.
I still like the presets for controlling the various sequencers and controls in real time.

Oh surprise, the two preamps from the death blow to -15 to -10 dB, even with my good old SM58! I decided to do some tests.
Gain 0dB but never reaches the stagnation always to -5 before the clip LED lights up.

For the price, it's nice. (For Win XP ....), but I am really disappointed with the preamp, which really are not clean!

Edirol UR-80
Dj is characterized by the manufacturer


Installs XP, laborious !!!!! Call hotline EDIROL 3x?


Rest in tps tps crashes!! Sonar3 essay or Cubase sx, same stability not impossible for me to use the Hyper Canvas?? it has no effect on the software?? otherwise good latency


Bought a year ago, I like its ergonomics, I like the amps at all: with SM58 or NT1 ditto of breath and they must be put back?
Too bad because the concept is very intrssant: Midi, Audio Console.
Report Qualit Price: I would give 9 / 10 if it worked compltement while I put the price of a quality report 5 / 10
With the exprience I do not Rasht, j'conomise (long) and I take the Yamaha .... But it's even nerva to buy a product that only works from time time and not compltement!!

One small gripe is the look a bit fake.
