Featuring two TRS/XLR combo inputs, two TRS outputs, MIDI I/O plus one separate headphone output, the UR22mkII provides sufficient connectivity for mobile recording and personal home studios. The two D-PRE mic preamps (with phantom power for condenser microphones), hardware-based latency-free monitoring and the interface’s audio resolution of 24-bit/192 kHz deliver superb audio quality, while the CC mode allows connection to iOS devices.
