UA-25EX with pro studio extras succeeds the UA-25 16/06/08
Edirol has announced a new version of its popular UA-25 24bit/96kHz USB Audio Interface. The UA-25EX succeeds the UA-25, and adds pro-grade microphone preamps, a newly developed analog compressor/limiter, and ground-lift functionality for studio and stage.
Edirol tell us that the current UA-25 has been very popular since its debut in 2004, thanks to its USB bus-powered operation and compact, sturdy aluminum body. They believe that it is widely heralded as the industry-standard USB audio interface. The UA-25EX has been improved with the pro-grade microphone preamps, latest phantom-power technology, along with a newly developed analog compressor and limiter. With a simple knob, say Edirol, you can dial up a fat, high-impact sound.
Edirol say that, for the first time in an audio-interface product, the UA-25EX has ground-lift functionality - very useful for live and home recording. It is Mac/PC cross-platform compatible and supports WDM, ASIO 2.0, and Mac OS X Core formats.
With the bundled Cakewalk Production Plus Pack CD-ROM, including the popular SONAR LE recording/composing application, Edirol see the UA-25EX is a true all-in-one recording solution. Features
