Universal Audio has announced that it is shipping two new Volt series USB audio interfaces. Featuring 4-in/4-out audio connections with onboard tone shaping, the Volt 476P and Volt 4 models bring 48v phantom power, Direct Monitoring for latency-free recording, a suite of audio software, and iPad/iPhone connectivity.
Volt 476P is UA’s first Volt model to feature four analog preamps, with 76 Compressor and Vintage Mic Preamp modes on every input channel. The portable Volt 4 bus powered USB recording interface includes dual analog mic preamps with Vintage Mic Preamp mode.
Volt 476P and Volt 4 expand UA’s line of USB recording interfaces, which also feature additional 1 and 2 input models with iOS compatibility for musicians, songwriters, livestreamers, and podcasters. All Volt interfaces feature Vintage Mic Preamp mode, inspired by the mic/line preamp in UA’s 610 tube console. A UA exclusive, Volt’s tube emulation circuitry allows users to dial in rich, full sound on vocals and instruments.
Volt 76 models also feature a built in 76 Compressor. This innovative analog circuit is based on UA’s iconic 1176, and features easy-to-use presets for adding clarity and punch to voice, guitar, and other sources. Along with an included suite of audio software including Ableton, Melodyne, UJAM’s Virtual Drummer, Marshall, Ampeg, and more, all Volts include a special 30-day free trial to UAD Spark — UA’s subscription plug-in service.
The Volt 476P and Volt 4 USB audio interfaces are available to purchase for $469 USD and $239 USD, respectively.
