The UA25EX CW is a Cakewalk branded version of the old Edirol UA25EX. The interface itself features the same great functionality including Mic and MIDI inputs, zero latency direct monitoring, analogue dynamics processing all built into a compact unit that interfaces with USB 2.0
Cakewalk and Roland are taking the Edirol UA25-EX CW in a new direction, and you can be sure that the integration with the Cakewalk software will be top notch!
The UA25EXCW comes with Cakewalk Sonar LE, Project 5 LE and Dimension LE. But the interface comes with standard drivers (ASIO, MME and WDM for PC & Core Audio for Mac) so you can use it with the DAW Software of your choice.
Here's what Cakewalk say about the UA25EX
The UA-25EX is a feature packed, professional-level, ruggedly made 2x2 24-bit/96 kHz USB Audio Interface for Mac and PC. With its professional quality mic preamps and compact size, the UA-25-EX is equally suited in the project studio or as a mobile solution on the road for high quality audio recording and music production.
Don't let its compact size (or body) fool you - the UA-25EX is a full-featured, professional audio interface with extras you wouldn't expect in its size and price class. It's capable of handling audio at 24-bit/96 kHz resolution, and boasts newly-developed high-end micpreamps, plus pro quality balanced audio inputs and outputs, and an integrated low-noise, wide-range power supply.
Analog Compression & Limiting
The UA-25EX features a newly-developed analog compressor with variable attack times and threshold control for smooth capture of vocals or dynamic instruments. The accompanying limiter prevents input clipping from occurring so you'll never lose those perfect takes.
Pro-Quality Shielding with Ground Lift
With its high-grade aluminum chassis, the UA-25EX can withstand hard impacts, and is shielded against high-frequency interference from other electrical components. Should a ground loop occur, the new ground-lift function eliminates the noise by disconnecting the sleeve pin of the master output from the earth ground.
