Universal Audio introduce two new four-channel audio interfaces to the Volt line-up, the Volt 476P and Volt 4 USB. Both feature the clear and tidy design those familiar with the Volt range will already know, as well as analogue preamps, 48V phantom power, Direct Monitoring, a suite of audio software and iPad/iPhone connectivity.
The new Volt 476P sits at the top of the Volt audio interface range. This is aimed at engineers, creators and bands who need to record larger projects. Volt 476P features four analogue preamps, 24-bit/192 kHz audio conversion, and UA’s 76 Compressor and Vintage Mic Preamp modes on every input channel. The compressor can add punch to instruments or vocals whilst recording and is based on the legendary UA 1176, whilst the Vintage Mic Preamp gives a flavour based on the 610 tube preamp.
The Volt 476P also includes expanded outputs for headphones, speakers and outboard gear. It is housed in a rugged metal casing, along with a nice aesthetic touch from UA to add retro wooden side panels.
The Volt 4 USB again features four input channels and 24-bit/ 192 kHz, although only two of these channels feature analogue preamps and Vintage Mic Preamp mode, with two more jack inputs at the back. It also is USB bus powered for recording on-the-go.
All Volts include a 30-day free trial to UA’s plug-in subscription service UAD Spark, along with a package of audio software including Ableton, Melodyne, UJAM’s Virtual Drummer, Marshall, Ampeg and more.
The Universal Audio Volt 476P USB and Volt 4 USB are available now worldwide, priced $469 and $239 respectively.
