Steinberg’s UR-28M USB audio interface is an excellent tool for home and project studio owners looking for a powerful and affordable hardware solution for audio recording. Thanks to a 96 kHz sampling rate and four analog inputs, users can craft high-end audio mixes across a range of instrumentations and musical genres. The UR-28M’s onboard +48V phantom power allows users to connect their preferred condenser microphones to the hardware unit.

The UR28M interface delivers high-resolution audio with striking clarity. Connecting via USB 2.0, the DSP-powered console features digital and analog I/O with D-PRE mic preamps.

Designed for easy access to controls and connectors, the UR28M’s console comes with a single prominent output volume knob for individually controlling the levels of one of three stereo output pairs or the levels of six outputs simultaneously. You can also select between three monitoring mixes set up in the dspMixFx mixer or Cubase which is routed to the selected outputs. Several smaller rotary knobs to control signal levels of inputs 1 and 2 and the levels of the two headphone outputs. while further dedicated switches for inputs 1 and 2 allow you to employ 48 volt phantom power, 26 dB signal attenuation and connecting high-impedance instruments. Other controls include the Dim button for attenuating all line output signals by 20 dB, the Mono button and the Mute button for muting the selected output signal. Four-segment LED meterings for the inputs and the output are also available on the UR28M console.

The rear panel provides two TRS line inputs and two Neutrik combo TRS/XLR mic/line inputs alongside six analog balanced TRS outputs plus a coaxial S/PDIF input and output connector. Also included is a 1/8 inch stereo input jack for connecting to a portable audio player or other devices as a reference source

The UR28M represents a top-notch recording system with plenty of inputs and outputs to connect to microphones, instruments, studio monitors and headphones. There’s a USB connector to hook up to either your Mac or PC that lets you record and mix your productions with the included Cubase AI workstation or other audio software.


The UR28M is a recording and production solution for project studios prioritizing excellent sound and a swift workflow. Connections required for studios such as S/PDIF and routable TRS I/OS are at hand. Also on board are EQ and compression tools in the form of the Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strips on each channel, not to forget the REV-X plug-in that provides quality reverb for modifying the intricacy of a sonic space. The UR28M allows for up to 5.1 surround with its six line outputs.


The UR28M interface is ideal for rehearsal rooms. Thanks to its practical size you can place it anywhere and even take it home with you. With analog and digital inputs over six channels plus acclaimed D-Pre mic preamps, UR28M provides everything you need to record your band in pristine audio quality. Record instruments and vocals in the rehearsal room and mix them later on at home or in the studio in Cubase AI or your preferred DAW.


Powered by Yamaha’s custom-designed SSP2 DSP chip, you now can enjoy the benefits of dspMixFx technology which offers latency-free monitoring together with the highly acclaimed REV-X reverb and the Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip for users of any DAW software. The Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip consists of a sidechain-enabled compressor and a 3-band parametric equalizer, which can be applied to up to 4 mono input channels or 2 stereo input channels on the UR28M. Both EQ and compressor were developed to attain a highly musical sound. Its featured morph knob smoothly allows you to morph through both EQ and compression settings in combination in order for you to come up with the ideal sound very quickly just by using one single control element. The REV-X built into the UR28M is a complex reverb algorithm developed by Yamaha. Renowned for its high-density, richly reverberant sound quality, with smooth attenuation, spread and depth that work together to enhance the original sound, the REV-X features three types of reverb effects: Hall, Room and Plate simulations with reverb time and level control.


Running with Cubase, the UR28M does away with any need for additional mixing software between DAW and I/O. This means that all aspects of I/O handling and DSP management are handled directly from within Cubase. Once your UR interface has been installed, Cubase detects the launched device and automatically embeds it into the Cubase production environment. With Steinberg’s acclaimed True Integrated Monitoring technology, Cubase manages all audio streams with perfect sync, allowing for a highly efficient workflow that boosts productivity to new levels. The URs feature direct integration into Cubase with dedicated windows and views that only appear when they are connected, providing full control of the hardware’s functionality from within Cubase itself. This not only includes the Cubase Mixer extension for the Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip and REV-X reverb DSP effects, but almost all hardware functionality.


Zero-latency monitor mixes with DSP effects are managed alongside mixes played back through your DAW of choice via the included dspMixFx mixing application, combining hard disk audio data and live streams being recorded at the same time. Each independent monitor mix can utilize the DSP capability for an outstanding sound that you will feel extremely comfortable performing to. The effects can be included in the signal recorded to the input track but the signal can, of course, also be recorded dry with no FX or bypassed completely.
