If you demand pristine performance, the UA-4FX can handle audio at up to 24-bit/96kHz resolution. Send audio in and out of the UA-4FX via its analog I/O or, for the ultimate in high-end audio quality, 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. Any budding film composers or sound designers out there?
Great audio and versatile MIDI combined with a quality suite of built-in effects make the UA-4FX an irresistible package for computer-recording enthusiasts on a budget. Why pay extra for outboard or plug-in effects when the UA-4FX provides a quality, COSM tube mic-preamp simulator, multi-band compressor/limiter for mastering, guitar amp-simulator and distortion/chorus/delay for guitar, center cancel, reverb, noise suppressor, and more.
Good news for both Mac and PC users — the UA-4FX is cross-platform compatible. It supports WDM, ASIO 2.0, and Mac OS X Core Audio formats. Enjoy low-latency audio performance on both platforms! PC users are in for an extra treat: Edirol ships the UA-4FX with a complimentary copy of Cakewalk’s Sonar LE multi-track recording software as well as Edirol’s Virtual Sound Canvas plug-in.
Great audio is only part of what makes the UA-4FX a star performer. Connect your synths, modules, and controllers via MIDI, and enjoy ultra-fast, stable performance thanks to the FPT (Fast Processing Transmission) technology. A single USB cable provides both the MIDI and audio links between your computer and the UA-4FX.
The UA-4FX receives its power via USB, which means no AC adapter is required. Great for musicians on the go!
