New from Edirol is the UA-4FX USB audio/MIDI interface.
There is little doubt that Edirolâ€™s UA-series interfaces have been embraced by computer-recording enthusiasts for their good value.

Hereâ€™s the lowdown on what the UA-4FX is capable of in Edirolâ€™s own wordsâ€¦
â€œRoute audio in and out of the UA-4FX via analog I/O or take advantage of its S/PDIF optical output. Windows XP users can use the optical output for Dolby Digital or DTS 5.1 Surround output as well. With built in COSM tube mic-preamp simulator, multi-band compressor/limiter for mastering, amp simulator and distortion/chorus/delay for guitar, center cancel, reverb, noise suppressor and more, the Edirol UA-4FX is an irresistible package for computer-recording enthusiasts on a budget.
Great audio is only part of what makes the UA-4FX a star performer. Connect synths, modules, and controllers via MIDI, and enjoy ultra-fast, stable performance thanks to Edirolâ€™s FPT (Fast Processing Transmission) technology. A single USB cable provides both the MIDI and audio links between your computer and the UA-4FX.â€�
The UA-4FX is Mac/PC cross-platform compatible. It supports WDM, ASIO 2.0, and Mac OS X Core Audio formats. Enjoy low-latency audio performance on both platforms.
