The new UR22mkII Recording Pack offers entry-level songwriting producers an audio interface, headphones, mic and music production and editing software
Steinberg Media Technologies has announced the availability of the UR22mkII Recording Pack for early November 2016. The bundle offer is a full production studio offering entry-level users an introduction to music recording and mixing: the UR22mkII mobile USB audio interface alongside the ST-M01 studio microphone, the ST-H01 studio headphones and an XLR cable. To round out this offer, the latest software versions of Cubase AI and WaveLab LE plus Cubasis LE are also included.
The UR22mkII houses two TRS/XLR combo inputs, two TRS outputs, MIDI I/O plus one separate headphone output. The two D-PRE mic preamps provide phantom power for condenser microphones. Other highlights are latency-free hardware monitoring, a sampling rate of up to 192 kHz, as well as connectivity to Windows and Mac computers and the iPad.
The included ST-M01 studio condenser microphone provides a frequency response range for recording both vocals and acoustic instruments, with the ST-H01 studio monitor headphones delivering an equal response range.
Cubase AI is based on the same technologies as Steinberg’s advanced music production system, Cubase Pro, combining audio and MIDI recording, editing and mixing in a single, integrated software package. WaveLab LE combines basic audio editing and mastering capabilities with internet audio publishing features in order to enhance a recording for CD and online. Cubasis LE is the compact version of Steinberg’s multi-touch sequencer app, Cubasis, allowing for recording, editing and mixing on the iPad.
“We have been providing hardware bundle offers for some time now but this one surpasses them all,” Steinberg’s Stefan Schreiber. “Software programs for computer and iPad alike, headphones, mic and the audio interface turn together the UR22mkII Recording Pack into a very impressive recording bundle. It includes really everything you need to get started right away… bar the computer.”
The UR22mkII Recording Pack will be available from early November at a suggested retail price of €279 (approx. £250). For more details, visit steinberg.net/recordingpack
