Welcome audio drop outs, good bye customer service.

Illusia Productions, 22.12.2016
Hello,

we've had this interface in our office, its purpose is entirely down to quick audio edits, proof listening through speakers and / or headphones and project management (includes audio / video streaming).

Never used the pre's.

The box is build very solid, feels good.
The knobs are a little tricky to move unless you have small hands/fingers.

The DA-converter seem pretty good to be honest, for such a low end / mobile product actually impressive.

Now, why would we rate 1-star, then?

It started pretty much right away: Audio drop outs...
First of all, the UR22 MK2 uses a Yamaha ASIO driver, which I sorta dislike already, I rather have a dedicated ASIO driver for the specific product.
Not a one-size-fits-all-solution.

Anyhow, a quick Google search and browse through the Steinberg forums have shown an INCREDIBLE amount of customers who have the exact same issue.
Audio drop outs here and there.

Random drop outs from a couple times within a minute to several times within 10sec.
Please keep in mind the job this device had to do was to simply play back audio in media players such as VLC, etc and DAW's such as Cubase.

In rare cases it would be used to compose a few chords here and there, but it's main purpose was office work, so not gonna write any orchestral masterpieces on it and yet, this task seems already too much to expect.

Be it Cubase, VLC, Media Player, YouTube / other online streaming, etc. etc. > Drop outs..

The audio would drop out for 1-2 seconds, the front LED would start blinking until it starts working again for the next few seconds (up to 1-2 if lucky).

Now Steinberg is very aware of this issue, yet there hasn't been a proper fix found.
Steinberg advises to have everything up to date (which is the case).

I tried it USB powered, external powered, different USB cables that were recommended in the Steinberg forum (the one included seems to be very cheap of quality, yet would be expected to work right?)

Energy options in Windows 7/8/10 are performance oriented, etc. etc.

I had one success point however:
A older ASIO driver (v1.9.5) & powered/active USB hub, quality 3rd party USB 2.0 cable (short) which seemed to solve the issue!
Horray I thought..
Until a couple weeks later without ANY changes to the OS/device/driver the interface would cause audio drop outs again.
Same as before, every couple seconds. Every driver is up to date, same problem on other machines as well which makes this interface completely useless.

I should have done some research before as the entire internet is full of bad reviews and dissatisfied buyers of the UR22 MK2..

Result: Don't buy, chances are very high (according to Steinberg forums & research) that you'll get some sort of compatibility issue.
Not going to lie, though:
> IF < it works, it's a great mobile solution, I'd imagine the preamps are not too bad either for a low end product, but the audio drop out chances are too high with this one and therefore I can not recommend it.
Steinberg should stick to DAWs and let the big boys take care of interfaces ;-)

Very good for the price

lupoloop, 14.08.2017
I was looking for a compact, good-quality audio interface with a low budget. And I have to say that I am not disappointed at all by the UR22. Its rugged construction and low noise are big plus points at this price, and the ability to record with very high sample rates at 24-bit resolution is perfect.

With only 2 entries you cannot play live on a big setup, but for a little home studio like me, it is perfect !
