      Leaders in recording

      Since I have been recording music I have always been a fan of UA’s top notch equipment. My Apollo was hands down the best audio interface I’ve ever used. I went through tough times and had to part ways with it unfortunately. Lucky for me UA had a great Black Friday deal which I got a still amazing sounding volt 2 free with my purchase of an amazing plug in package. I can finally record again and I am forever grateful for UA.

      Volt 2

      After having problems with a previous interface after a failed firmware upgrade which the company has taken no responsibility for, I was directed to the Volt 2 by a salesman in a music shop. It has been easy to setup and has performed very well. A solid sounding machine that is well built and very fit for purpose. Very pleased.

      Fantastic audio interface

      After weeks of research I came to the conclusion that the volt 2 was the best all round audio interface for me and my home studio. The audio interface seems that of a great quality. Solid construction with good quality dials and knobs not to mention the fantastic bunch plug ins it came with. The preamps are good the headphone port works perfectly with a range of different ohm headphones. Also wasn’t sure if I’d use the vintage mode, but it seems to be that always on button.
      Anyone who is thinking of purchasing this will not be disappointed. Saw some negative reviews saying the volt 2 is difficult to set up. I found it quite the opposite. Any of the interfaces with free plug ins will require you to sign up. It has been 1 month since I bought the volt 2 and it’s been a fantastic bit of kit. Was extremely happy with my purchase

      UA Volt 2

      Nice little interface that works great with my iPad and iPhone. Quality so far is terrific. I am sure I will put it to good use! A little disappointed no built-in loop back capabilities.

      Horrible

      I find this volt 2 very hard to get set up.,I have had nothing but problems since I bought it. the so called free programs don’t work. Always have to subscribe and constantly think of user names and passwords. I honestly think they are in the business of information gathering. And this ilok crap. That’s a joke. why didn’t it mention on the box about having to buy this $50 usb stick? After paying over $200 for this interface.!!I’ve never been so pissed

      Easy to use

      This is my first audio interface and I have found it easy to use and set up. It has good sound quality, and I'm glad I got it. It came with the microphone and headphones. I have not used the headphones much but they are comfortable, and the microphone is good. I have so far used it for spoken word, and it has worked well.

      I Love it

      I really love the preamps. I use it as my mobile unit to record overdubs of artist on location and it sounds sooo great.

      VOLT 176

      It's my first interface, the reason was this: I had already seen that they have models like the apollo that I've seen in home studios and with artists like Camilo, Grupo frontera recording vocals and as I see that UAD things are durable so I went for what I have today LA VOL 176 and it sounds very good, the compressor gives volume, it has a noise floor that can be reduced, it feels very solid

      Es mi primera interfaz la razón fue esta : ya había visto que tienen modelos como la apollo que he visto en home studios y con artistas como Camilo, Grupo frontera grabando voces y como veo que son duraderas las cosas de UAD pues me fui por lo que tengo hoy LA VOL 176 y suena muy bien el compresor da volumen tiene piso de ruido que se puede reducir se siente muy solida

      This is great!

      I recently got this as part of a free give away for the purchase of some software. And I must say it is way above what I was using. All I have to say is, if you are thinking about getting a Volt product---stop thinking and do it. I love mine and the software that comes with it.

      Returned

      Product works and pre-amp is nice, but the software is a royal pain, with having to register everything with different companies, the promised "free" plug in bundle not provided and the dozens of e-mails in the 2 weeks the product was in my possession. Not worth the effort. Returned this afternoon.

      Great Sound and ease of use

      I just got this thing up and running and its great. Sounds great and does exactly what I need. Seems pretty sturdy I'm thinking of picking up another for a travel rig. The option to monitor in stereo is a great feature. The only negatives are that I'm not thrilled about the plastic nobs and I would also like to see a pad button on this thing. Otherwise its super legit. Totally happy with it. Thanks guys.

      Does not feel cheap!

      Very sturdy piece of gear, looks and feels very solid! For the price it is an outstanding modern audio interface!

      really good

      very sturdy and elegant piece of equipment. Easy to setup and sounds amazing. One downfall is that it doesn't support the UAD Plug-ins, and that's where the you'd find most of the modeling amp plug-ins.

      Rock Solid!

      Up and running in minutes on either my Ipad or my Win10 Desktop - runs smoothly even at low buffer settings with any of the DAWs it's been running in and sound quality (feeding a pair of Hs-7) seems superb to my ears! Pres are neutral and remain quite even past the 3 o'clock gain position. Highly commendable!!

      Not quite everything you need….

      The equipment it’s self is excellent no problem there but sadly the DAW element of the software is a Lite version so you are un able to save or export things you record. This lead to a rather disappointed first time customer of UA.
