Armed with the Zoom U-44 Portable 4×4 USB Handy Audio/MIDI Interface, it’s easy for musicians, songwriters, and producers to record four sources at a time to their computer, iPhone, or iPad and integrate MIDI gear, too. At home, outside, or while traveling, the U-44’s user-friendly tactile controls and high-resolution 24-bit / 96 kHz converters help you capture your creativity with quality. Plus, it comes with Ableton Live Lite and the Steinberg Cubasis LE iPad app to provide the software you need to take your music from inspiration to a finished production.
The U-44 features two low-noise microphone preamps with switchable phantom power and XLR-1/4″ combo jacks—both can handle mic or line inputs, and Input 1 sports a Hi-Z switch for when you need to track an electric guitar or bass. The 10-pin input enables quick attachment of any Zoom mic/input capsules (available separately) and stereo S/PDIF digital I/O is provided on coaxial and optical ports.
Thanks to mix-adjustable, zero-latency direct monitoring, stereo 1/4″ main outs, four RCA line outputs, and a 1/4″ headphone port, the U-44 can simultaneously feed speakers and headphones with independent volume control. The headphone output features its own balance knob, which lets you blend computer playback signals 1-2 and 3-4 for customizable cue mixes.
