The Product of a Meticulous Development Process


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


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


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.

Import Tracks From Projects

cubase 10.5 pro

Intelligent and Intuitive Transferring data to and from projects or creating entirely new project templates has been made much easier thanks to the addition of the new track import function. Simply import multiple track types from your other projects and select the tracks attributes which you wish to import. Need to use the same drum mix for different projects? No worries, Cubase has your back. With one click, the Auto Map function can even match the newly imported tracks to existing tracks which share the same name.

Retrospective MIDI Record

cubase 10.5 pro

No more frustration Have you ever delivered your best playing performance, but noticed you weren’t recording? Probably. It happens to us all. Fear not though, because the MIDI Retrospective Recording feature has undergone a complete overhaul to ensure this common frustration becomes a thing of the past. Cubase tracks your MIDI input, even when not recording, and brings back your chords and melodies as a stacked cycle or one continuous performance with just one click.

Combined Select Tools

cubase 10.5 pro

for when time is of the essence ‘Combined Select Tools’ is a handy new feature which allows you to make your editing workflow much more economical by combining your two most used tools into one great feature. Activate the new tool mode and the selection tools for both objects and ranges can be used at the same time, with no need to change tools, leaving your workflow uninterrupted. If you’re a professional engineer working on the clock, time is crucial. This new tool could well turn out to be your favourite new feature.

Date Issued: 21st Oct 2008

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.
