Steinberg UR22 review

UR so small Steinberg introduced the UR series a little over a year ago with the UR28M and the UR824. They’re back with an entry level unit priced at under $200 with two D-pre preamps included. Verdict? Read more…

Value For Money :

yiwuaussie's review" Worked really well - Then died...."

Steinberg UR22
UR 22 Steinberg/YAMAHA
Read all the posts and reviews and found value of money with recording quality
Ran very well with Cuebase and Audacity. Perfect sound zero detectable noise on Vox and instruments


Drivers and performance is good...


All software is great - Hardware failure!


When it worked it was great!
Updated drivers as soon as we installed unit. After 3 weeks went to record and unit was 'not there' Checking power noticed red LED's were on (around half brightness) but both gains were zero....huh?
Tested alternative USB leads (2) Connected to another Windows 7 system...Not detecting. Also White LED (power/USB connect) flashing around 1 second pulses... Turned on phantom power... All lights glow... Turn Phantom power off - Gain lights on white LED flashing. Re-installed drivers. Even did a system restore...(getting stupid here)
Sent back to store.....Waiting (which is not like recording !!!)

stompboxjon's review" Good for home recordings"

Steinberg UR22
The UR22 is a 2 in and 2 out interface that works via USB. It has phantom power and MIDI connections on the back of it. This box is very small but still powerful, the preamps in it are very warm and quiet and do not color the sound at all. This interface comes with Cubase AI6, and it is very easy to set up on any computer. As long as the microphone that you use with it is good you will get a great sound. This interface is perfect for a home musician on a budget that needs an interface that has the warmth to handle vocals and instruments. But with this interface it really comes down to the microphone used.


You will get no latency monitoring with the UR22 and it can work on both Windows and Mac OS X systems. Setting this interface up with Cubase was very easy, I used it for a while and though it is not the Cubase version I am use to working with it is still very similar and it comes with VST plug ins and effects. Most of the effects and plug ins are pretty standard but you can always use your own plug ins that you are familiar with.


The manual is very easy to understand and work with it. But generally only a newer user will need it.


There are 2 TRS outputs and 2 XLR/TRS combo inputs. There are no effects built into this interface. This interface sounds very warm when used with the right microphone. I have used the Blue Bird with it and it sounded great, I have also used a Rhode microphone and it sounded just as good. This interface does not seem to be built the best though which is general what you can expect in this price range. The knobs are plastic and you will need to be very careful with this interface it will not be able to withstand much abuse.

Ours_Chauve's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good material"

Steinberg UR22
I bought this interface first for its price. It seemed really cheap.
I made a home use, connecting a guitar or bass amp output, microphone occasionally, and my PC sound. It is lit when it is ON all the time so.
The amp above is very significant, although already having an amp in my loop, we reached the peak fast enough. I'm not very familiar with the more gear interface, I still use it perhaps as a ham.


The plug 'n play system works very well. You plug it works.
Regarding recording mono / multi-tracks, I do not comment, computer music puts my PC to its knees.


5 months of use, I have not encountered a hardware problem or incompatibility.
The case does its thing, it works.


5 months of ownership, I will not regret my purchase.
It is very suitable in a home use, the power supply by USB is a real plus for mobility, but the low number of tracks and settings are in fact not really a scene tools / studio.

The price fell further (acquired € 140 in January, now it is in the 120), if it's small, rugged equipment you need, I think this is one of the best products in the market.

squiddly696's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Satisfied with the result"

Steinberg UR22
The main technical feature that motivated my choice is the low latency announced, but the 48v supply.
This low latency is checked to use.
The reviews I read on this card have (including AF) have confirmed my choice.
The relatively low price is also a strong point, especially since the card comes with AE version of Cubase 7.5.
I personally goes through a pre-amp SANSAMP PRA DRIVER before attacking the card, with a bypass channel used (to record clear sound) and the other channel from the preamp.


The drivers are stable.
I use the UR-22 to make guitar and bass taken via Cubase.
The number of available runway is more than enough to record demos, I have not yet seen the end.
As said above, the latency is imperceptible. I work on PC (quad core 3.6 GHz - RAM-16M Windows 7 64-bit - a SSD support program - internal sound card 24-bit 92 kHz)


The installation was done without difficulty. Setup is quick, just follow the user manual, and voila.
Manual, reduced to its simplest expression, is sufficiently explicit.


I regularly use the UR-22 for close to 6 months. My only regret is not directly related to the product but in my choice of base is taking a 22 (2 entries). if it again, I would opt for a UR-44 with 4 inputs, which allow me to work simultaneously with another musician in the same conditions miking.
