La tengo desde marzo y he probado todo, en conclusión una excelente interfaz de calidad profesional a un precio accesible, me encantan los pre amplificadores y el compresor que viene integrado, es un poco agresivo pero hay que acostumbrarse.
Lo que me complica es al querer monitorear desde el DAW dos salidas independientes de audífonos, el conector de audífono es muy débil (con dos meses de uso ya genera ruido y tiene holgura al conectar o desconectar el trs del audífono), si quiero tener a una persona grabando con audífonos mientras yo estoy monitoreando la grabación con audífonos NECESITO necesariamente otro dispositivo para conectar la otra salida, en mi caso uso la salida 3 y 4 para entrar a una consola soundcraft y salir con mi segunda señal de audífonos... un garrón.
Pero trabajando solo niun drama funciona de pana. Salu2 de chile.
I have it from march and i love it, the compressor is a little hard and smooth and preamps are smooth too and very clean.
The trouble it comes when i have to recording and i need another pair of phones.
The Jack it's too delicate, too thin, you might thing it will break soon, sometimes it sound like sand (with 2 month of use with delicate management) so it wont be able the double connector adapter, you need to connect the 3 and 4 outs to ANOTHER device so it's a kind of setback (it seems to be space from another phone jack but UA leave to last version of volt) , but it works very well !, nonetheless it has the possibility of doin it, thats why 4 stars, but i love it.
I have had no problems. It does what it was made to do.
Great interface for the price-point
I like this interface. I'm happy with it being the centerpiece to my humble budget home studio. I love the way it looks with the multi-coloured LEDs (it's really pretty), but most of all, the way it works. I do have a couple of gripes about it though, and that is, occasionally, my DAW playback will play heavily distorted and garbled, and I'll have to restart my DAW to fix it. Secondly, I was really impressed by the sound of the Vintage setting combined with the built-in compressor when I heard it for the very first time, but on subsequent trials, I think the distortion/saturation of the Vintage mode is just way too harsh, maybe they used odd harmonics rather than even harmonics, but it doesn't sound nice or pleasing, it just sounds harsh and angry. Anyway, I don't use that anymore, and I'm overall quite pleased with the unit. I'd recommend, but probably not as a go-to versatile interface, if only to open the door to UA's awesome plugins.
Loved the product
I am in love with this peice of gear the only thing i miss is to use Uad 2 plugins on this , it would be really good if Only a manley plugins can be obtained on this either for subscription or paid , rest is amazing

I absolutely love the Volt 476! It's super portable, without sacrificing the quality. Pre's sound amazing as you'd expect from UA and I love the built in compressor for the 2 front inputs. I use the guitar setting almost exclusively with my synths and it makes my workflow so much easier. Highly recommend!
Volt 476 - Almost Perfect!
I think it deserves 4 stars, for some essential stuff that are missing... But I gave a 5 as big support for Universal Audio and their amazing product.
If the Volt series could just blend into the console with apollo, instead of running on his own and conflicting my UAD x8 monitor system, it would be almost the perfect compact audio interface I always wanted. Great gear.
Great preamps and sound quality
I had the ID14 mkii interface (great interface and great quality for sure) and I've decided to change it for the Volt 476 because of the compressor and the vintage thing and I couldn't be happier. It's working like a charm on Logic Pro X and Ableton 11. Also the plugins that comes with the interface are really good.
Bought this interface to have one at home besides my main one at my studio, but I guess it will end up replacing it, it sounds good! Very simple to use but very versatile
Great preamps and sound quality
I really live almost all of this soundcard.
The only issue i found is no gain on the 3 and 4 Inputs
And also cannot control with the big volume knob the output 3 or 4... This is a good thing on studio for check song in other system monitors
I've owned many interfaces over the years. My new Volt 476 works great with Cubase 12 pro. The analog vintage preamp and compressors are a big reason why I got it. I was tired of using all those outboard boxes - compressors and high-end preamps and wanted a simple but efficient set. It all works like I expected and the interface feels and look like quality.
Love the Preamps, Compressor, & Vintage Buttons and Oh So Sweet
Recently took a chance on the Volt 476 interface. I would've liked the unit with 4 preamps, but beyond my budget. This is the 4th USB I have bought over the years. I have only used it a few times now, but much easier thus far. I am using Cubase 12 and it was nearly plug and play. Everything worked the first time which is way better than my last few experiences using Tascam and Alesis gear. I chose this interface specifically on recommendation by my producer friends that love UA gear. I am a folk and blues singer songwriter who occasionally likes to shred. Thus far I've only used lines in and direct bass through the on-board compressors and "vintage" button. Way cool. I would highly recommend this. There is no detectable delay in monitoring and the onboard compressor and vintage have not yet showed any slow downs of processing. Dont hate on me, but I am using windows laptop which is not latest and greatest and I'm still getting wonderful results. Thanks Universal Audio.
Missed the mark in multiple areas for me
I was really excited to have my first UA product. Just sitting on my desk it looks awesome. Let me preface this review by saying it didn't work for me and I'll tell you why, but that doesn't mean it wouldn't work for you.
The reason I got this is because I have a Kemper - which doesn't have an audio interface. What I wanted to do was have something I could use with Windows audio through my studio monitors , with my Kemper, and with a Mic for maybe podcasting or YouTube videos while I played guitar. Or, just play backing tracks and play along on my Kemper or whatever.
Staring with the good, the windows audio comes through clear and strong - and sounds amazing. Listening to music or playing games was amazing.
With the Kemper I struggled. There is no S/PDIF so I had to use inputs 1/2 or 3/4 both for stereo with my Kemper (This would be true with Helix, AxeFx, or any of the multiple devices that still use S/PDIF). Honestly inputs 1/2 sounded bad. 3/4 sounded good but I had to crank the volume on the monitor knob to max - which messed up the Windows audio and made me turn the volume in Windows down to like 10/100.
You need to be able to control the volume of the Windows audio via the device or device software - as well as inputs 3/4 if there are no knows for them. Why is the Windows audio so loud compared to the inputs? A device like this should have loopback - most people need that for podcasting with instruments.
Sadly - I had to send it back. I really wanted to be a UA fanboy. I ended up getting a used Presonus Studio 1824c for about 50 dollars more that does everything I need - and has plenty of power. I can't even turn this thing half way up. It doesn't look as cool as the UA device - and doesn't have the Mojo, but I did what I had to - to meet my needs.
Weak mic preamps
Very little gain from mic preamps. I returned it to Sweetwater and purchased audio fuse. Much better. Disappointed in UA. I own Apollo quad and twin. These have the best preamps. UA could have done better with the volt
5 stars product
As a first real audio interface, I was looking for a studio quality package with an integrated solution (compressor, plugins) as a real alternative to my guitar amps and to be able to play live and to record/play at home.
I got everything ! An amazing product and a fantastic "one size fit all solution" !!!

Excellent device, I’m so happy !!
1 HUGE design flaw! Move that PHANTOM POWER
This product overall is very good. I’m fortunate enough to have not yet had this happen, but the phantom power button is RIGHT on the front and super easy to accidentally hit, which most certainly can fry your gear! This is a HUGE no for me. This is my second audio interface, and I prefer the interface of this one, but that button MUST be moved. It has no business being that easy to hit. For beginners or gigging artists, that is just irresponsible placement. Seriously I don’t know how it made it through your QA department. ANY button that ups the power for only specific gear should be covered, and placed in a location that will not easily be bumped. There is plenty of real estate on that front panel. Please guys, do your community all a favor and move that hot button. I would have otherwise given a 5/5. Audio quality is dank, super fast USBC data transfer, wicked quick MIDI. For real. You’re doing yourselves a disservice leaving yourself open to angry patrons who accidentally fried they’re gear!
I purchased the 476 due to upgrading my macos past mojave and i had a 32 bit interface, i needed 3 to 4 inputs so this is just enough, ideally i need two headphone ports, 1 for me and 1 for the artist but i guess i call always get an adapter or a headphone amp. Things were ok at first but then i started to get pops, clicks and audio dropouts, which i have NEVER EVER had with my last interface for 15 years(thats why i didn't want to get rid of it) and when i looked at UA connect it said my product wasn't registered/connected which is a total untruth. I tried to fiddle around with some settings to get rid of the dropouts/clicks but got nowhere at first, then a couple weeks later after relaunching connect app it finally read connected/registered. its a nice compact interface, it works for my needs but i would of been nice to get a volume knob for ins 3/4.
Inexpensive high-quality interface that sounds great. Preamps sound nice.
UA at its best!
A great device, awesome recordings! Gain controls on inputs 3 and 4 would be a plus.
Fantástico Interface, con un acabado exterior exquisito y unas prestaciones fabulosas
