Steinberg UR-RT2 - USB 2.0 Audio/MIDI Interface

steinberg urrt2

2-channel USB 2.0 Audio InterfaceSteinberg’s UR-RT2 is an exceptional 4x2 USB 2.0 audio/MIDI interface featuring switchable Rupert Neve Designs transformers on the UR-RT2’s front inputs. The combination between the Neve transformers and the exemplary ‘D-PRE’ preamps means that the UR-RT2 is able to deliver a much more expressive sound, richer in harmonics, which is of fantastic benefit when recording vocals, acoustic guitar and any other instruments with a broad dynamic range.

The UR-RT2 brings studio-grade quality, to a mobile production platform, sporting a range of I/O options for laptop and iPad, and zero-latency FX for monitoring thanks to the SSP2 DSP chip. The powerful and rugged UR-RT2 was designed to offer unmatched quality for it’s price bracket of portable production interfaces, and it’s fair to say, Steinberg has achieved this with stunning results.

Rupert Neve Designed Transformers

steinberg urrt2

Professional-Grade Components Rupert Neve is without any shred of doubt, a legend in the professional audio world. The transformer circuitry is just one of the key factors in his vast array of vintage designs and also in the very latest devices from Rupert Neve Designs, which adds a genuinely unique touch of natural compression and saturation to the sound.

Inputs 1-2 on the UR-RT2 each sport a transformer that Rupert Neve designs has engineered exclusively for audio interfaces. Thanks to this transformer, an organic distortion can be added to the incoming signal to shape a sound that is rich in depth and perspective, whilst maintaining the natural sound from the D-PRE itself when the transformer is switched off.

The D-PRE: Beyond Precision


24-bit/192kHz resolution The Yamaha-designed ‘D-PRE’ preamps have almost since their inception, been praised the world over by studio veterans and industry press alike. A magnificently detailed high-end, flawless dynamic response and a rich, warm low-end sound are the trademarks of this highly-celebrated preamp.

To faithfully record and play back the rich, transparent sound of the D-PRE, the UR-RT2 boasts AD and DA conversion stages with upto 24-bit/192kHz resolution.

UR-RT2 Setup Examples

Front Panel Connectivity The two XLR/TRS combo inputs can be used in many different recording situations. For example, these could include recording two vocalists singing a duet; a singer playing acoustic guitar, with voice and guitar each recorded using a high-quality condenser mic; a choir or other classical performance recorded using two well-placed microphones; or any of the above accompanied by a backing track recorded using the two additional line inputs.

UR-RT2 Connection Example with Laptop, Rear Panel UR-RT2 connection example with laptop, rear panelMIDI instruments can be recorded “in parallel” with both MIDI data and audio streams routed to corresponding channels in your DAW, letting you edit or rework the MIDI data in your project later. Monitor speakers are connected to the two output jacks on the rear, enabling the UR-RT2 to offer a compact, high-quality MIDI-based production solution.

UR-RT2 Connection Example with iPad, Rear Panel Connecting an iPad is accomplished using the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit, Lightning to USB Camera Adapter or Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter. Now you’re ready to record, edit and mix music on your iPad, for example, using Steinberg’s widely praised Cubasis app. Hook up a keyboard, drum pad or controller on the MIDI ports, with monitor speakers plugged into the dedicated Line output pair, and you’re good to go.

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.
