You can record 6 audio tracks simultaneously, good for recording my band ( acoustic setup)
When I bought this product, my first impression was this is good and professional equipment. Even the packaging is good, you will keep it for remembrance
This equipment has complete instructions and manuals inside the box. The installation was very easy. Just download the updated driver, hook the interface and your ready to go. ( Registering this product online is optional but I suggest have time registering it for support)
So far it didn’t give me headache and it always run very smoothly
I am a very satisfied customer of this product because it has no latency, noise free pre amp and it looks very professional
what i didn't want was the free guitar effects and amplifier simulator it sounds like a crap
I have tried different kind of audio interface like m-audio fast track, but my vote is still on this interface, the Steinberg UR44
-Sufficient input for semi professional studio
- professional looking and its built like a tank ( metal casing)
- the pre amp let your vocals sound more warmer and smooth
- importing this product ( there is no Steinberg products available at my country, Philippines) so i need to go to singapore by myself to buy this product

6 inputs: 2 Neutrik combo XLR / TRS mic / Hi-Z with peak indicator inputs 1 and 2 + 2 Neutrik combo XLR / TRS mic / line with peak indicator for inputs 3 and 4 +
2 analog TRS inputs on the back for inputs 3 and 4.
all in a half-rack size transportable very well built.
the power supply is small, it adds a + not negligible for the portable side, seen what can weigh heavy but it is very solid, I personally love, coupled with a ultrabook that's just in the 3 kilos carry, this is cool I think.
Stable hyper Driver (Yamaha) on Ableton Live 9, the computer does not crash ever, sampling frequency change during playback It was always works, it's reassuring.
Trouble-free installation on Windows 7 has nothing to report this is perfect. I use whatever the frequency (44.1 to 192 kHz) minimum buffer asio and it not crash.
I leave a Focusrite Forte has excellent mic preamp, but 'was not stable on Windows 7 and had no MIDI and just the ability to record 2 input at the same time I sold to buy steinberg I'm really not a shield! Instead I'm even surprised value for money bought € 279 in promo (I've even seen thereafter to 249 €!) Anyway I would recommend this course is stable, very good recording quality, pre ample amp for studio use or mobile homes.
I do not usually put 10 everywhere but here I must confess that I have nothing negative to say at the moment and my config Windows 7 core i7-3610QM is perfect for me
