    Rugged 2x2 24-bit/96kHz USB audio interface with high-end mic preamps, balanced I/O, and more.

    The UA-25EX is a feature packed, professional-level, ruggedly made 2x2 24-bit/96kHz USB Audio Interface for Mac and PC. With its professional quality mic preamps and compact size, the UA-25-EX is equally suited in the project studio or as a mobile solution on the road for high-quality audio recording and music production.

    High-Resolution Performance
    Don't let its compact size (or body) fool you—the UA-25EX is a full-featured, professional audio interface with extras you wouldn't expect in its size and price class. It's capable of handling audio at 24-bit/96kHz resolution, and boasts newly-developed high-end mic preamps, plus pro-quality balanced audio inputs and outputs, and an integrated low-noise, wide-range power supply.

    Analog Compression & Limiting
    The UA-25EX features a modern analog compressor with variable attack times and threshold control for smooth capture of vocals or dynamic instruments. The accompanying limiter prevents input clipping from occurring so you'll never lose those perfect takes.

    Pro-Quality Shielding with Ground Lift
    With its high-grade aluminum chassis, the UA-25EX can withstand hard impacts, and is shielded against high-frequency interference from other electrical components. Should a ground loop occur, the new ground-lift function eliminates the noise by disconnecting the sleeve pin of the master output from the earth ground.

    Compatible With All Major DAWs
    The UA-25EX is the perfect I/O for Mac and PC customers looking to get better audio quality from Ableton Live, Cubase, FL Studio, Digital Performer, Garage Band, Logic, Nuedo, SONAR, and others.

    Bundled Software
    For Windows customers just getting started, the UA-25EX includes the Cakewalk Production Plus Pack, a feature-rich recording software bundle consisting of SONAR LE, Project5 LE, and Dimension LE for PC-based recording. The CD-ROM also includes the latest ASIO, WDM, and MME drivers for Windows XP and Vista (32-bit versions), plus Core Audio drivers for Mac OS X.

    Simply unusable

    By Wen Qi

    from Canada

    Comments about Cakewalk UA-25EX USB Audio Interface:

    Configured everything right, but my computer just can't find the device. Everything is installed, but somehow it simply doesn't work. Roland's website is useless; all proposed solutions in their instruction booklet doesn't solve the problem. This thing is simply unusable; unless you're an expert in programming or a technician, look for something simpler

    Comments about Cakewalk UA-25EX USB Audio Interface:

    Tried several on board sound cards and another brand of USB audio/midi interface and find the UA 25EX a great unit for computer recording. Easy to set up and understand. Using it currently with XP (tower) but will be setting it up on WIN 7 (laptop)as well. Maybe not the BEST interface made... but the best for my money. Just hook it up and go! Comes with Cakewalk Sonar 8 LE. Also, Musician's Friend has the fastest [free] shipping of anyone I've dealt with.
