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.

Updating drivers can sometimes be a bit of a gamble. Will the drivers come with an installer? Will you need to uninstall the old drivers first? Many drivers these days do come with an installer, which simplifies the process dramatically.

Steinberg UR44C USB 3.0 6x4 Audio & Midi Interface, D-Pre preamps, including Cubase AI is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent box, but beware the sortware I bought this to do some home recording with guitar, vocal microphone and piano, I have a dedicated windows 7 computer for this task. The downloading of the software required to use this was easy to do, sadly the interface for the box to computer refused to install as it turns out the drivers seem to be for Windows 10 and the way my computer reads the driver signings refused to work. Nothing on the Steinberg website about this but a good few comments on their forum, including a few incorrect solutions. After many hours of work on this I eventually found on the Microsoft website a file (KB4474419) that indicated it might offer a solution though not specificity addressing this issue, however it did solve the problem and allowed me to install the driver. Yes, I did have the updates and service pack 1 already installed on my computer. This was not an easy solution and anyone with out a good idea of Windows issues would I feel struggle. When I then went to run Cubase10 as downloaded, no, it refused to run. Turns out that Cubase10 only runs on a Windows 10 computer, despite the box stating that the UR44c is compatible with Windows 7 it turns out that this only refers to the hardware, not the supplied software, so they give you software you cannot use, with no alternative, which is sad as they did have a version that worked on Windows 7. For myself, I was very fortunate in that I happened to have a previous version of Cubase8, which fortunately worked with the driver and the UR44c. Having managed to get the box running it is fantastic, it even works with “Audacity” and I also bought the “ Camera Adaptor “ for I Pad and it works well with the free to download Cubase AI and even with Garage-band. (yes, I do mean “Camera Adaptor for I pad, USB3 to Lightning”). Overall I am really happy with the UR44c, would have preferred not to have to had so many hours spent getting it to run, and would have been nice to have access to the Cubase 10 I was expecting to have, but I can live with it. I would recommend the UR44c, however if you are not a computer geek use a Windows 10 computer, though on an I Pad it is fine with the correct adaptor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid build and solid performance I found the UR44C to be a reliable, sensible and capable unit. What I liked in particular: having physical Gain knobs for each of the 4x front inputs was my top priority. Having 2x headphone outputs was useful too. Additional functionality like the MIDI and outputs (in addition to Main) was also good. What I didn't like so much: setting up the unit, registering, downloading and installing was quite a mission, and not always straight forward to follow. Also, I should have checked more carefully that in order to power the unit from a laptop you need a USB-C port. Please bear that in mind. Since the unit doesn't move so much I don't mind using the included power supply. Sound is very good and built-in DSP is very capable too. There is also a little computer mix application which you can use if you don't want to install the Cubase DAW on your computer. It is very capable for basic mixing and FX. The included Cubase AI DAW is super capable. Some functionality is not available unless you upgrade (and pay) but for the most part it's more then enough for me. The only things I'm missing is the functionality of the so-called Control Room (headphone mixes and live functionality). There are also a lot of YouTube clips relating to the software, which you can learn from. This unit may not have the flashy exterior of the Focusrite range for example, and a less famous profile, but it is every bit as capable, possibly more so.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality product. Good workmanship on this device, very solid. Performance is crisp clear and noiseless to my ears. Negative point- A little tedious setting up Steinberg account to download the necessary software.
