OVERVIEW

A great cornerstone in your personal studio and a perfect field unit for traveling engineers. Unique onboard compression!

The Edirol UA-25 USB Bus Powered Stereo Audio Interface is easy to set up. It's a powerful USB Audio/MIDI interface designed to offer premium sound quality, rugged durability, and complete portability to the computer-based audio engineer. Compact enough to travel anywhere you can take your computer. High-grade aluminum chassis withstands hard knocks in the field and shields against high-frequency interference.

USB powered but provides 48V phantom power for condenser mics. Outputs audio at +4dBu from the balanced 1/4" outputs. Realtime direct monitoring. You can turn direct monitoring on or off, adjust the relative volume of the input signal compared to the audio playing out from your computer, and even set the signal to monitor in mono. This lets you plug a mic into the left input and hear it in both headphones or hear any phasing issues between inputs.

Built-in mild analog compressor protects against clipping and gives a little more latitude in field recording situations. 24-bit/96kHz audio performance, MIDI I/O, S/PDIF optical I/O, and Neutrik XLR/TRS inputs with high-grade microphone preamps. Super-stable drivers. ASIO2.0, WDM, MME, and CoreAudio support for both Mac & PC.

Reroute outgoing audio signals back to the input without crossing into the analog domain so you can record streaming audio directly.

FEATURES
  • Solid aluminum chassis - portable and durable
  • Premium audio quality
  • Wide variety of I/O ports
  • Built-in analog limiter
  • Zero latency direct monitoring
  • USB-powered phantom power preamps

The UA-25 will always come in handy, no matter what kind of recording you do. Order now.

This little box is pretty nifty. I got it due to the all the handy interfaces it has. With a few changes it could be perfect, but as-is it is rather frustrating for mix-down. The BCA2000 is better for home recording and mixdown, and is cheaper to boot, but my BCA2000 popped the left channel when I was disconnecting a mic, so I decided to try this unit instead. I have mixed feelings about it.Pros:- USB interface- Nice Windows drivers, easy installation- USB powered, even phantom mic voltage- Mic pres are fairly quiet- Headphone output fairly quiet- Rugged case, controls and I/O nicely laid outCons:- USB interface is 1.1 only, which limits 24/96 to in or out, not both- ASIO driver crashes my NI Bosendorfer 290 standalone- Analog outputs are variable, not straight line level- Headphone level is tied directly to analog output level- Direct monitoring feed is only a volume, not a mix control- Line inputs a bit hissy when gain is applied- No coaxial SPDIF I/O- Use of the optical SPDIF input creates a loop, so you can only use in or out, not both- No indication of what actual gain in dB is for analog in level controls If I were designing this box the coaxial connections on the back would be SPDIF I/O, using the SPDIF input wouldn't create a loop, the analog outs would be line level only, the output volume on the front would control the headphones only, the direct monitor control would be a mix control between direct in and out, and the USB interface would be 2.0 or Firewire. Two headphone outs with separate volumes would be a real plus as well. For that I'd pay $50 more and the box would be a true Swiss army knife. Are you listening Edirol?

This little piece of equipment is pretty good. The pre's aren't too shabby but the sensors crackle, A LOT, when you put it too high. Don't even use the software, it sucks. Get something good like Ableton Live. The balanced XLR inputs are AWESOME. The sound comes in extremely clean every time. Overalll decent for the price. I would recommend it to intermediate recorders.

In case you get the high-pitched sound

By johnty

from Vancouver, BC

In terms of features/sound quality, I have nothing bad to say about it. Everything works very well.However, in case you're getting that high pitched whine on yours - try the shortest USB cable you can find. it helps - a lot!Still, I can't say I'm at least mildly annoyed at this... However it also appears to be a hit and miss thing - not everyone seems to experience it. so maybe its just a certain batch?

Excellent portable equipment

By Morapi

from LA, CA

It's very easy to install and I was up and running in less than 10 minutes. The quality so far is good, no pops & clicks in the sound.

Satisified

By M87ROB

from Houston, TX

This interface has great features and does everything I need. I use it with Reason and Sonar and it handles softsynths easily. My only complaint is there is a very faint, high pitch frequency coming from the outputs, but it doens't pick up on recording, so that's ok.

Very Dependable

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I've had this box for 7 mo. now, and haven't had the first problem. It's up and ready to use every single time, and was simple to install. Could've been a little cheaper, seeing as how it really only serves one purpose, but compared to the other options out there, it's worth it to go ahead and put down the cash for this one.

cool

By Mark-kYXK1

from Nashville, TN

I have only had this unit a few days and I could not be happier. I have had the midiman audio midi usb interface and had nothing but trouble with the drivers. I had the Edirol UA-25 up and running within 15 minutes of pulling it out of the box. Actually opening the box took the longest. The mic pres are great for the price range and for a few dollars more than the midman product you get way more features. If you need a small interface with only a few inputs this is the way to go. rock on!!

Amazing value

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This box has it all and the 24 bit 96khz recordings are great! This and a laptop and some good mics make a very powerful mobile rig that can't be beat. Easy install too.

Get it!

By Samradio

from Indianapolis, IN

I'm a free-lance journalist, and this little box gave me exactly what I needed. I was up and running in minutes, with zero problems. It's extremely versatile, and I HIGHLY recommend it. So worth the money, not even funny!

I'm finally glad I went to computer recording.

By GrampaPat

from Lodi, WI

I had some initial problems with the settings on my computer, but I am 53, so... within two days I had it figured out and I couldn't be happier. I use Cakewalk Pro 3 and my old Martin can finally be heard on CD. I don't have the backround to give specifics, but if you mike your guitar and want to record on your computer, the Edirol UA 25 will send it clear and clean. Some people say I'm 'frugal', well I'm glad I spent the money for this.
