Edirol Corporation announced the UA-25, a compact audio interface for mobile computer-based audio recording.
The UA-25, packaged in a durable metal casing, is bus-powered and transports both audio and MIDI signals to and from the computer all through a single USB connection. It offers phantom power mic preamps on the TRS/XLR combo inputs for use with microphones; a Hi-Z switch to bring a guitar or bass in without the need for a direct box; Digital In to bring in DAT and Mini Disc, RCA, TRS Balanced, and Digital Output to send the signal to any audio destination.The UA-25 offers balanced +4 dBu inputs & outputs. In addition, the UA-25 includes a Direct Monitoring switch that allows the user to hear the recording in real time, as well as a "MONO" setting to hear phasing issues or monitor a single source through both the left and right headphone.
The most differentiating feature on the UA-25 is the "Limiter" function which adds mild compression to the analog inputs. This reduces the likelihood of clipping and makes the UA-25 suited for remote recording where a clean audio recording is a must and a second take is not an option.
Drivers for the UA-25 are to be avilable for both Windows and Mac operating systems, including direct support for ASIO2.0, WDM, Core Audio, and OS nativedrivers.
Suggested retail price is $295 with availability in the 3rd quarter of 2004.
