Universal Audio has announced Volt, a new range of compact USB audio interfaces designed to let users easily record audio with a classic studio sound.
Ready to capture music, live stream, or podcast content with professional studio tone, Volt interfaces have been designed to add clarity and punch to voice, instruments, and other sources with an analogue compressor based on UA’s iconic 1176.
All Volt interfaces utilise class-leading 24-bit/192 kHz audio conversion, and include a vintage mic preamp mode with tube emulation circuitry for a rich, full sound.
An essential suite of audio production software also comes packaged, including Ableton, Melodyne, UJAM’s Virtual Drummer, Marshall, Ampeg, and more.
The first and most compact model in the range – Volt 1 – is designed for singers, songwriters, guitarists, and podcasters who want to create classic-sounding music productions, live streams and podcasts on Mac, PC, iPad, and iPhone.
Universal Audio says Volt 1’s exclusive built-in tube emulation circuitry allows it to produce the rich, full sound of the UA 610 tube preamp, a classic mic/line/instrument preamp used to record everyone from Ray Charles to Van Halen.
