Steinberg have another great entry to the UR range
kuyas, 21.06.2020
I decided on this because my previous interface was also Steinberg, and I knew they had quality interfaces. Needed more I/O though and this provides a decent amount.
Build quality is excellent, everything feels good.
So far have used it in some mixing projects, pretty busy ones with 40-60 tracks including buses and I'm at half the buffer size of the old interface and using slightly less CPU, so happy about that!

Its easy to install, and very well integrated into Cubase as UR28M was but improved now with the C series software.

I got this mainly for using hardware fx as inserts. Its is a little bit fiddly to set up, but once you get it right its flawless.
The manual doesn't mention this at all.
Just need to in DSPmixFx software set the outputs of each Mix 1-4 to the DAW Direct outs 1-8. So Mix 1 (Physical 1L / 1R) will output to 1/2, and so on.
Then when adding your hardware fx you set the output to the DAW Direct number NOT the Mix or physical output. So if you output to fx with physical out 1L then that should be DAW Direct 1. Setting input is easy as the physical inputs are the only ones listed so can't go wrong there!

All in all very happy with my upgrade to this.

I use it for home recording
Mimica, 18.04.2020
for this price range, this is great interface, easy to use, easy to install, I have it for some time now, signal is just fine, that latency that everyone are weeping about is nonsense, it works like charm, it has so many channels and conectors,even two jakcs for headphones, very friendly and easy software mixer, I still did not find and cons for this. knobs are beautifuly made and almost everything you use heave from your front side, I use Fl studio and works like charm with it, 32-Bit integer / 192 kHz and Recording / Playback Channels 16x16 for this price? omg who ever gave this baby low rate, he should consider it again, Strong advice, guys this is 650 euros huge interface, and it has world clock in case you use it, because why not :D

Fantastic sound clarity and easy installation
JariV, 07.05.2020
This is a great interface especially with the included CuBase. The setting up could not have been easier with CuBase. Plugged in Moog Sub Phatty to computer and CuBase found it immediately. No messing with settings, drivers etc. The preamps sound great. The build quality is excellent as always with Steinberg.

Auf dem ersten Blick schon mal der Wahnsinn
virgil-scherbentanz, 17.11.2019
Steinberg Interfaces sind keine Neuigkeit für mich. Ich besitze neben dem neu angeschafften UR816C ein UR44 und UR22Mk2 (das einzige aus der UR Familie, wo ich nur mäßig zufrieden bin).
Die Verarbeitung des UR816C ist sehr edel und die Bedienung via dspmixfx auf dem iPad funktioniert sehr gut. Allerdings gibt es hier eine separate "neue" iPad App und die alte App für die Vorgängerserie ist hier nicht einsetzbar. Da diese aber stabiler läuft und optisch reizvoller erscheint, ist das nicht weiter schlimm. Auch ist anzumerken, dass das USB C zu USB A Kabel nur 1m lang ist, was bei vielen Setups entweder eine Verlängerung oder ein alternatives Kabel notwendig macht.
Auch kommt das Interface mit der aktuell verfügbaren Firmware Version (also kein Day-1 Update notwendig).
Die Umstellung zwischen den Vorgängermodellen und diesem ist gottseidank schnell vollzogen und da fast alle Änderungen eine Optimierung nach vorne darstellen, kann man das Interface jedem empfehlen, der sein Setup aufrüsten möchte. Allerdings habe ich das System noch in keine (echte) DAW eingebunden, das werde ich aber beizeiten machen. Bislang arbeitet es bei mir mit der Applikation Multitracker für Samples / Klick / Lichtsteuerung (Midi wird hier an einen RPI gesendet und dort weiterverarbeitet) im iPad aber hervorragend zusammen.

PS: Midi funktioniert klasse, aber leider ist kein Midi-Thru verfügbar.
