The Product of a Meticulous Development Process

back

TRULY a 'FLAGSHIP' InterfaceThe foundations of any professional audio interface and professional sound quality begins at the input stage with the microphone preamplifiers. The AXR4U boasts 4 spectacular, organic-sounding hybrid mic preamps engineered by Yamaha.

Engineered and designed under the keen eye of Yamaha’s ‘Natural Sound Initiative’, the component selection, physical construction, circuit design and grounding have all been scrupulously evaluated and honed in the development stages of the AXR4U.

The last adjustments were undertaken after substantial subjective listening examinations by professional engineers. The results speak for themselves and the AXR4U is the very definition and embodiment of ‘flagship’.

Rupert Neve Designs 'Silk' Technology Inside

back

hybrid microphone preampsRecording engineers have employed Rupert Neve designed preamps for decades to deliver a sound rich in organic compression and natural saturation. Rupert Neve Designs ‘Silk’, is an emulation in modern transformer design that replicates the vintage sonic characteristics of Rupert’s ’80 Series’ console modules from the 70’s.

The Silk processing onboard the AXR4U’s hybrid microphone preamps offer 2 useful applications. ‘Red’ for a ‘shimmering’ vibe, and ‘Blue’ for when power and thump is required, whilst a variable ‘Texture’ control adjusts the harmonic content to best compliment the source signal.

Yamaha DSP-Powered Effects

back

next-gen DSPX chipPowered via Yamaha’s next generation ‘DSPX’ chip, the AXR4U lets you reap the rewards of dspMixFX AXR technology for zero-latency monitoring, alongside the widely-celebrated ‘Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip’, 'REV-X reverb', and the ‘Vintage Classics VCM Compressor 276’ and ‘VCM EQ601’ – an iconic 70’s EQ with 6 parametric bands and a Drive mode to enhance your original signal with warm, elegant analogue harmonic distortion.

If you’re a Cubase user, you’ll find all these advanced monitoring capabilities are integrated into the applications interface by ‘True Integrated Monitoring Technology’.

'SSPLL' Technology Inside

4K Recording

Advanced Virtual Jitter ReductionEach time you add more and more devices with clocks to your setup, additive audio band jitter results from clocks competing against each other. One solution, although expensive, is to add a high-end master clock with a voltage-controlled crystal oscillator and sample rate conversion. Steinberg’s ‘SSPLL’ (Super Suppression Phase Locked Loop), is a complex technology for removing audio band jitter.

It’s a cost-effective remedy and it easily can stand next to much more expensive professional master clocks. Robust and extremely tolerant of wide clock frequency variations, SSPLL ensures all your gear works in a virtually jitter-free and reliable manner.

Get connectedSteinberg ensured the AXR4U was sporting an abundance of connection options, which makes it the ideal interface for literally any pro-level computer-based studio or live sound scenario. +48V Phantom Power across all XLR/TRS inputs, you can connect both your condenser and dynamic mics as well as line-level signals. Furthermore, inputs 1 & 2 take hi-Z signals for guitars, keyboards and other studio equipment or playback devices. With a broad selection of digital and analogue output options and up to 3 units able to be daisy-chained via USB 3.0, the Steinberg AXR4U has you covered when it comes to connectivity in the realm of professional audio production.

You've probably read the USB Tekspek, and perhaps your intrigue, or product interest, has lead you to look up Firewire as well. The two are similar in some respects, particularly some of the products that use the two technologies. However, Firewire has its differences, which means it has both benefits and drawback when compared to USB. This Tekspek will look at Firewire and also look at it with respect to USB.
