32-bit/192 kHz audio resolution

In addition to the great build quality of the UR series, the sound quality of UR-C models has been refined by carefully adjusting components and incorporating 32-bit converters. These precisely and transparently capture the subtlest nuances of every recorded signal, ensuring even the tiniest audio detail is maintained throughout the entire production process.

Class-A D-PRE mic preamps

The UR-C series features D-PRE preamps, offering stellar recording quality unmatched in this price class. Yamaha's highly acclaimed D-PRE preamps deliver truly transparent and beautifully detailed sound. A sumptuously detailed high end, immaculate dynamic response and rich, rounded low frequencies are the hallmarks of D-PRE.

Compatible with all major audio software

UR-Cs are compatible with all major audio software supporting the ASIO, Core Audio or WDM standard, providing a fully integrated, DSP-based monitoring setup wherever you are and with whichever DAW you use. Integrating seamlessly with Cubase and almost any other DAW, UR-Cs deliver latency-free monitoring with DSP-powered effects.

Latency-free monitoring with DSP effects

With built-in digital signal processing, UR-C interfaces provide zero latency monitoring with effects for every DAW, including straightforward control of all routings and settings. Powered by Yamaha's custom-designed SSP3 DSP chip, whether you use an Apple Macintosh, Windows PC, iPad or iPhone, you can enjoy all the benefits of dspMixFx technology.

Loopback function for streaming

The Loopback function of UR-C interfaces offers an easy way of streaming performances live to the Internet. When the function is active, incoming audio signals to the interface are merged with the signal coming from audio playback software inside the computer. The merged signal will then be sent back to the computer for online streaming via your software of choice.

MIDI input and output

All UR-C audio interfaces are equipped with 5-pin MIDI I/O ports to connect any MIDI device, making them extremely flexible for studio recording. The MIDI I/O on the UR-C series means that you can combine the latest audio interface technology with any MIDI device to ensure every aspect of your sound is just as you want it.

Superspeed USB 3.1 with USB-C

UR-C interfaces feature the USB 3.1 Gen 1 SuperSpeed standard, which provides fast, reliable and seamless connectivity to Mac and PC computers, as well as iOS devices. Together with the enhanced low latency delivered the SSP3 chip and the latest, most refined drivers, the UR-C series gives you peace of mind wherever you are recording.

Ultra-rugged build

Built to the most exacting standards with a robust metal casing, UR-Cs are rugged enough to withstand all the rigors of the road. The exceptional build quality of these interfaces means you don't need to worry about the journey – they are tough enough to ensure that when you set up to record, the high-quality internal components will work perfectly every time.

dspMixFx Remote Bridge

dspMixFx Remote Bridge is a Windows/Macintosh computer application that allows you to control the DSP functions of a connected UR44C wirelessly from an iOS device using dspMixFx for iOS when connected to the same wireless LAN. Using Remote Bridge, a singer or musician can easily adjust DSP monitor settings from the recording booth.

iOS ready via CC mode

Combining UR-C units with an iOS audio application provides you with a fully mobile audio recording solution. All UR-C interfaces automatically switch to class-compliant mode when connected to an iPad or iPhone and the UR24C can even be bus powered by USB-C equipped iPad Pro models.
