  1. Will be seriously considering getting this if receives good reviews..
    but why only USB2?!!
    so that the next version “UR33” will feature USB3 ?

  2. Is useless a USB3 in an audio interface with 2×2… may be in a giga card with 64 ins and 64 outs (physicals) may be… my old USB1 card work like a rock with audio and VSTi’s… Steinberg make good hardware full compatible with they DAW’s.

  3. Cool. I love my Steinberg UR28M interface – the sound quality is exceptional fo it’s price. I’m sure this will be a quality product as well.

  4. I would love to see serious audio interfaces with specs like these made for the iPad,
    now that serious multitrack mobile recording is maturing on it (Auria, Cubasis, FLstudio …)
