Comments about Steinberg UR12 2x2 USB 2.0 Audio Interface:

I use Garageband for making beats on my MacBook and wanted to get a dedicated recording interface. I was looking for something inexpensive that would also work with my iPAD. I also wanted something simple that I could use with a MIC and guitar. After doing some research, I was told I should consider the Audiobox series from PreSonus, or the UR series from Steinberg. I was on a low budget, so the ninety-nine bux for the UR12 is what I went with.

Overall, I am very happy with the UR12, it is built like a talk, works with both my laptop and iPAD and it came with a free copy of Cubase AI. I'm able to easily control the volume of my SHURE mic and my Ibanez electric guitar with no problems at all. I didn't notice that there isn't a separate knob for the headphones, but that's not a deal breaker for me since my powered speakers have volume controls right on the front of them. I mean for only ninety-nine bux , this unit does do a lot.

I was kinda surpassed reading the previous review on the UR12 because for only fifty bux more, he should have considered the UR22. I did my research before I bought this item, so I knew it had all the features I needed. If it turns out I don't like it, MF has a good return policy. But so far, I'm a happy camper with the UR12!

Comments about Steinberg UR12 2x2 USB 2.0 Audio Interface:

Another 2-channel interface, and for what reason. I am a music retailer myself so I´ve seen a few of these cards, which usually do the same thing, more or less. However, the newest Steinberg model has a couple of flaws which are unbelieveable. First and most important, it does NOT have separate controle for monitor-speakers and headphones!!! That means that you literally have to unplug your monitors when recording with headphones, and plug them back in when you want to listen on them. What!?!?
Second, why not have multi input channels on both channels, i e XLR and jack input on both. No, they are limited to either xlr on ch 1 and jack on ch 2. Why make this when everybody else, included steinberg CI1, has multi-inputs on both channels. Stay away!

Comments about Steinberg UR12 2x2 USB 2.0 Audio Interface:

Bought this to record on the go, and work out demos before heading to the studio. It worked fine (with poor sound quality though) for a little while, but then the device began to have issues and wasn't connecting to my computer anymore. I looked this up and found that this was a common issue and on their own site and forums it had never been resolved. I tried to return it to them (only owned it for 2 months) but they had pretty terrible customer service and a response time that makes you wonder if they value the customer. I would strongly advise you buy another interface considering new units breaking is an issue for them. You can get the same thing by Behringer but cheaper, wish I would have done that to begin with.

    Comments about Steinberg UR12 2x2 USB 2.0 Audio Interface:

    I have had many interfaces and sequencing software but this is about the most enjoyable. CUBASE is a little more complex but thats because it's not for Kids. It has a lot to offer. The forums answer all my questions in a few seconds of searching and Youtube has many tutorials. I am so pleased and see no fault in this interface and software. No regrets and Cubase AI comes with some impressive plugins. Well worth the price!
