Make your computer a big-brained recorder, with killer effects.
The UA-4FX from Edirol is a USB audio/MIDI interface that sets a new standard for affordable connectivity. Gives you ultrafast, low-latency audio and MIDI performance, 24/96 audio resolution, phantom-powered XLR mic input, and built-in effects--including a COSM tube MIC preamp simulator for fattening up your tracks. The UA-4FX also includes a copy of Cakewalk's SONAR LE recording software and Edirol Virtual Sound Canvas plug-in (PC), making it a true all-in-one recording solution at an incredibly low price.
If you demand pristine performance, the UA-4FX interface can handle audio at up to 24-bit/96kHz resolution. Send audio in and out of the UA-4FX via its analog I/O or, for the ultimate in high-end audio quality, take advantage of its S/PDIF optical output. Windows XP users can use the optical output for Dolby Digital or DTS 5.1 Surround output as well.
Great audio and versatile MIDI combined with a quality suite of built-in effects make the UA-4FX an irresistible package for computer-recording enthusiasts on a budget. Why pay extra for outboard or plug-in effects when the UA-4FX provides a quality, low-latency COSM tube mic-preamp simulator, multiband compressor/limiter for mastering, amp-simulator and distortion/chorus/delay for guitar, center cancel, reverb, noise suppressor, and more?
Good news for both Mac and PC users ” the UA-4FX is cross-platform compatible. It supports WDM, ASIO 2.0, and Mac OS X Core Audio formats. Enjoy low-latency audio performance on both platforms! PC users are in for an extra treat: Edirol ships the UA-4FX with a complimentary copy of Cakewalk's SONAR LE multitrack recording software as well as Edirol's Virtual Sound Canvas plug-in.
Great audio is only part of what makes the UA-4FX a star performer. Connect your synths, modules, and controllers via MIDI, and enjoy ultrafast, stable performance thanks to Edirol's FPT (Fast Processing Transmission) technology. A single USB cable provides both the MIDI and audio links between your computer and the UA-4FX.
The UA-4FX receives its power via USB, which means no AC adapter is required. Great for musicians on the go!

Great little unit. Small in size. Fits on desktop really easily. Sounds great. Switches underneath a bit weird in placement.
I have a Tascam US144mk2 for when I want to do serious recording, without bells and whistles. The tascam is more reliable for recording.
The edirol is just fantastic for monitoring and hifi reproduction. I have it connected to a USB switch box. Out of this I run B & O Beolab 8000 active speakers which sound fantastic, a K&K sub, Yamaha HS50 active monitors , Dynavector $7000 power amp connect to a pair of Focal speakers and a pair of Kef R300.
Having moved from top end audiophile gear in a house, to a tiny 1 bedroom unit, this compromise really suits me well. I can get close to audiophile quality running my mac through the edirol. I've just got the hifi upgrade bug again so I'm looking into more sophisticated and high end DAC but the tone controls on the Edirol make it so flexible. If I go away from this unit for hifi listening, I'll have to add a proper hifi preamp so I can control tone. Can't fit such a unit into my tight little unit.

I have been using this audio interface for a few years now. It is an amazing tool for recording demos. Works very well with Garageband and the on board effects sound great.
This item is good for recording any form of sound digital or analoug. I used it to copy audio cassetts and convert them to CD. I used sonar home 6, and the results are awesome. You can remix to some extent using the fx . you'll have fun doing so.
I am having so much trouble with my Edirol UA4FX unit that I could not in good conscience recommend it to anybody.First of all, the loop-back feature simply does not work...not for me, anyway. The instruction manual is unclear whether the USB cable does all the work, or if you need to feed the line out from the Edirol into the line or mic input on your computer. Either way, it does not work.I tried recording an audio track with an SM58, and there was so much crackling and popping, it was ridiculous.And the whole sound card situation is so confusing! Unless you jump through just the right hoops with your software and make sure just the right parameters are set, you won't hear anything.To those of you who got this thing to work, congratulations. But for me, this was a complete waste of money and a continued waste of time.
I bought this item used from another online music store. So I could have been taking a risk. But the truth is that this audio interface does what it claims to do. I use it with my yamaha mixer so i can catch stereo sound from the rec out to the rca inputs for live performances. Records nicelythere is barely any hum if any at all. The guitar effects sound better than my boss metal zone pedal. But not better than my Orange half stack of course! And the tube simulator does an amazing job simulating the real deal.A problem I had with this device was that it wouldnt turn on a few times during pc startup. It would be awesome if they added an "on" switch so I wouldnt have to worry about that.In all, Edirol (by Roland) did a pretty good job creating this useful audio interface.
