Computer Hardware : Interface firmware update comes with new features and software - macmusicSteinberg Media Technologies GmbH today enhances their UR28M and UR824 USB audio interfaces with a comprehensive firmware update, adding class-compliant mode and loopback capability, four DSP-based guitar amp simulations for latency-free monitoring, a VST 3 effects bundle and a free copy of Cubase AI 7 for all registered UR28M and UR824 customers.

“This is possibly the widest ranging firmware update for any Steinberg hardware,î remarked Stefan Schreiber, product marketing manager at Steinberg. “Offering class compliance is definitely a first for us, and is the perfect complement for our Cubasis iOS app.î

Building on the interfaces’ dspMixFx technology, which already offers latency-free monitoring with the available REV-X reverb and the Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip, a set of guitar amp simulations christened Guitar Amp Classics has now been added to the UR28M and UR824 interfaces. Guitar Amp Classics comprises four amp types: Clean with built-in chorus and vibrato effects, Crunch for overdriven tube dynamics, Drive for heavy distortion and Lead.

The included Basic FX Suite consists of VST 3 versions of the Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip, REV-X reverb and Guitar Amp Classics.

The newly introduced CC mode, or class-compliant mode, enables connectivity with the iPad (2 or later) through Apple’s iPad Camera Connection Kit.

With the v2 firmware update, the UR28M and UR824 interfaces now provide loopback capability that consolidates all playback track and input channels and returns the mix to the computer.
