Pristine Recording and Playback

The U-22 features a single high-performance, low-noise mic preamp—the same as our acclaimed H6 Handy Recorders— with less than -120 dBu EIN, as well as recording and playback at resolutions up to 24-bit/96 kHz. You can also use the U-22 as a studio-quality headphone amp and listen to your favorite music in full fidelity.


Get Connected

The U-22’s XLR/TRS combo input can be used to record with a microphone or line-level source, with 48V phantom power, and Hi-Z support for connecting a guitar or bass. The U-22 is also equipped with a mini stereo input so you can record an iPad, mixer, or other portable audio device.


*The U-22 can record one input at a time. When recording from the LINE IN jack, the XLR/TRS combo input is disabled.


Power Your Live Performance

The U-22 is the perfect audio companion for musicians who incorporate digital audio processing or pre-recorded sound elements into their live performances. Connect your interface to a laptop or iPad, pull up software effects or a looper, and send your processed signal to a mixer or the house PA via RCA stereo outputs.


Zero-Latency Monitoring

The U-22’s direct monitoring switch allows you to hear your signal before it passes through the computer, so you can record and mix with zero-latency. Separate RCA output jacks and an independent headphone output provide multiple options for monitoring.
