Overview

Get professional studio sound from anywhere with classic analog tone shaping.

Universal Audio’s Volt 276 is a 2-channel desktop recording interface for Mac/PC and iPad/iPhone that delivers 24-bit/192kHz audio conversion, selectable 76 Compressor and Vintage mic preamp modes, and a suite of industry-leading software. With a 2-in/2-out USB interface, professional conversion for Mac, PC, iPad and iPhone is attainable.

The Volt 276 features top-of-the-line audio quality in a retro-inspired industrial design, making it easy to create professional-sounding music productions, livestreams and podcasts at home or on the road. Built-in vintage-style mic preamps and tone shaping bring the rich, full sound of classic UA outboard gear to your studio. It includes a full suite of audio and music tools from Ableton, Relab, Melodyne, UJAM, Marshall, Ampeg and more, giving you all the creative control and flexibility you need.

Collaborate with Best-in-Class Audio Quality
From the team that brought you the game-changing Apollo interface, Volt 276 delivers superior studio sound quality, with more character and tone than any USB interface in its class.

Capture Classic Vocals With Vintage Mic Preamp Mode
Few sounds can compare to a vintage Universal Audio 610 tube preamp, as used to record everyone from Ray Charles to Van Halen. Volt 276 gives you the rich, full sound of this classic UA mic/line/instrument preamp, thanks to its built-in tube emulation circuitry, a UA exclusive.

Control Volume Peaks With UA Compression
Get album-ready punch and presence with Volt 276's onboard 76 Compressor, an innovative analog circuit inspired by UA's classic 1176 Limiting Amplifier. The 76 Compressor features three perfectly tailored presets to tame voice, guitars, synths and drum machines. Just plug in, pick a setting and play. 

Stay Inspired With a Curated Suite of Audio Software
Some audio interfaces give you a smattering of random audio apps. Not Volt. Instead, UA put together a bundle of serious music production tools, virtual instruments and plug-ins including Ableton, Melodyne, UJAM’s Virtual Drummer, Marshall, Ampeg and more.

Easy In, Easy Out
Volt 276 gives you simple 2-in/2-out audio connections. Just plug your mics, guitars or synths into the front panel. Then connect your speakers or headphones to monitor your audio with no latency. With Volt, you'll be creating like a pro, fast.

iPad and iPhone Ready
If you're traveling light, plug Volt 276 right into your iPad or iPhone, and you can easily create beats and samples, record your band’s rehearsals and edit songs anywhere.

Includes a 30-day Free Trial to UAD Spark
Volt 276 users get an extended 30-day free trial to UAD Spark, an ever-expanding library of world-class plug-ins and instruments for a low monthly price. UAD Spark plug-ins run natively on Mac and will give your recordings the pro analog tones heard on your favorite albums.

Capture Inspiration for Years to Come
Featuring rugged metal construction, retro wood sides and sleek industrial design, Volt 276 elevates your production space with impeccable style, built to last decades.
