Solid purchase I’d say
nmdias, 18.01.2020
It’s a solid purchase overall.

Use:
- I use it mostly to drive my HS5 Monitors, and to record vocals.

Pros:
- I like that I can use it without powering my Mac.
- I like the future proof USB-C connection on the back.
- Hardware DSP for Reverb (Rev-X), Compressor and Equalizer

Cons:
- I wasn’t pleased to find that there isn’t a power button on the back, but the switch between the 5V USB external power and the USB-C connection will indirectly act as a power switch, as I only use the USB-C connection.

- I don’t like the USB-c input connector. It has a very small depth, so when you connect the USB-c cable, it sticks out too much and as a result it wobbles a lot and doesn’t feel like a stable connection at all.

- I don’t like the inputs on the front. It doesn’t make sense, but most USB interfaces seem to think it’s a good idea. If you have this on a desk with your computer, you’ll have your cables over the desk. I would usually disconnect my cables from the instruments and not the interface. So, these interfaces will always have bad cable management.

- The D-PRE pre-amps seem to be the most noisy pre-amps you can get, out of the most popular interfaces out there. This is fact, not opinion. It’s an observable, verifiable fact. However, it probably won’t matter for 99% of people purchasing this. You’ll get noise at around -120 decibels, compared to -126/-127 from competing products like behringer and focusrite. So, like I said, it probably won’t matter anyway.

- I don’t like the disposition of the input gain knobs. One is on the left of the first input, and the other is on the right of the second input. But like I said, inputs should be on the back, in my opinion. The front is where the controls should be.

- At this price point, I would have liked to see a line input on the back

Some final notes:

- The Behringer UMC204HD would be my first choice considering the crazy price diference. I only picked this one because I wanted the hardware DSP that it provides.

Solid brick with good audio features
stkest, 24.11.2020
This is my first USB audio interface. Previously I used Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy RX.

Pros
-Good sound (compared to old card)
-Drives my ATH-M50 headphones without separate amp
-Solid metal case
-Knobs feel good and smooth
-HI-Z works great with guitar
-Works on USB power alone
-XLR and Jack combo ports

Cons
-USB cable is really short and Type C part doesn't feel snug and moves a little. (If you get lag after connecting everything up, try different port on the computer)
-Front headphone port moves inside chassis a bit but the connection itself is good.
-Only 2 jack outputs. No XLR
-Microphone can only be connected with XLR (I tried my old 3.5mm mic with 6.3 adapter and it didn't work but I bought it for guitar anyways)
-Metal edges might cut you if you really wanted but should not cut by accident
-Chrome did not trust the driver download page.

DSP is the unique selling point
jacg, 25.01.2021
Solid interface, does it's job and has good controls. However, the preamp is quite noisy from what I understand, so I might have chosen another interface with lower noise if that was my focus.
The latency-free DSP effects are what make it worth it for me, both guitar amps and compression/reverb for vocals. I can have my guitar plugged in at all times and just pick it up and play, even when my computer is sleeping.

TL:DR, if you're not planning to use the DSP effects much, choose another interface with better stats for noise and headphone amp.

Wonderful Audio Interface
MusicProFAN, 21.01.2021
For a long time I chose between Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 3rd Gen and Steinberg UR22. Still, I chose the Steinberg UR22. This is a wonderful Audio Interface that contains everything you need to make music with pleasure.The first impressions of using it are very good! Great sound, great functionality, great design. I am very happy with the purchase.
