for me the best audio interface w/4 inputs
08.12.2015
i have alsis io2 express but i needed more inputs and wasn't happy with the latency performance
so I've been making choice between focusrite scarlett 6i6 and steinberg ur242.
I went with scarlett as it has decent reviews for its audio quality. but after a day of testing i was totally upset. a lot of buzz and noise probably caused by the ground loops or whatever. once I have connected active monitors the noise level coming from the input was unacceptable.
so i sent it back and took ur242. additionally i have read a lots of similar complaints regarding the noise.
the ur242 is something completelly different. the D/A has very very nice sound and is totally clean. i had tried the inputs and the were no issues with the noise or ground loop. i'm using the same cables. latency is awesome and audio quality as well. fully reccommended over scarlett anytime! and the price is lower too :) on top of that you'll get the latest cubase AI which is also nice piece of software.

update:
after I have post this review I have realized that this box has a VERY nice feature. Yes, it has DSP which is not new to me. You may add a reverb and one of the 4 guitar amp models (each one can be tweaked) per channel. That was something I ignored that and did not intent to use as I have everything in my Cubase. BUT - you can use the preset even your computer is shut down. That's really awesome if just want to quicly grab and play guitar without making noise during the night hours using a proper guitar amp. just power the UR242, plug the guitar in, put headphones on, or turn on monitors. I really love that feature. The amps do not sound awesome, especially on higher gain, but cleans and crunch is just ... ok for some practicing.

built like a tank
kaangvn, 28.02.2019
I use this interface to practice and improve my music editing skills and it does the job very well, the included software makes sure every penny you spend on this product will worth it. also you get a great discount if you'd like to upgrade your software to Cubase 10 Elements. This device futures DSP which I couldn't find at any other usb interface at this price range. it can be very useful when you're using any software that requires good amount of cpu and memory work because this feature lets the usb interface to process many things before even sending signals to your computer which also lets latency free monitoring. build is very nice, you can tell that this thing can endure hard conditions as soon as you take one in your hands.
