you guys suck
NO drivers, works great... install drivers and welcome to a large amount of RF noise. USB isolator solves issue but then device no longer "visible" to PC. $80 USB cable made no positive difference. Same setup tested with multiple computers with volt2, same problem. Same setup tested with multiple computers and multiple other audio interfaces, no problems. you email me for a review then you provide a broken web page that doesn't save the state of how many stars i clicked on. you guys suck.

Volume is above average. Overall, great buy for the price!
Affordable, portable, powerful
Purchased the Volt 2 after upgrading my laptops and needing a new interface (previously used the Apollo.) And I love the simplicity and clarity of this desktop box. Everything I need to lay down tracks is quickly and easily accessible. Definitely enjoy the ability to use with my iPad as well.
Хороший звук, хорошие усилители, интересная функция эмуляции лампы.
Единственное но - плохая совместимость с FL Studio, драйвер просто не оптимизирован для работы в этой DAW, родной драйвер FL Studio работает более лучше, чем Вольтовский
Perfect for quick grab and go/live situation
Working with a X4 ususally, the Volt 2 is the perfect quick solution when I need to get out there working on stuff, demoing...
I also use it as a live interface to get samples out and be a MIDI interface in the same time.
Sturdy and reliable for an very good price, preamps are good, the vintage circuit does the job more than nicely. So yeah as a travel unit it has no fuzz and all the good options. Really recommend !
Compared the competition and choose the Volt 2
I looked at other interfaces and ended up choosing the Volt 2. I used it for the first time the other day and wow. It was easy to use and the results exceeded my expectations. Good luck to everyone making great music with your Volt 2!
Simple but perfect sound card
I use multiple sound cards from different manufacturers. Volt2 is great in my opinion and works perfectly - the recordings are perfect, I have no problem with the drivers yet I use DAW Studio One 5 Pro.
Perfect for making demos and practice tracks
I use my Volt2 for making practice tracks. It lets me import instrument tracks from other sources (I use Band in a Box). I can then add my instrument and vocal tracks to send to band members.
I also use it to make demo tracks for marketing. A couple of demo tracks are a great marketing tool. And the effects (especially vibrato) give tracks a professional sound.
The Volt2 was easy to use from the start, works with all my other music software and gives me a portable studio using the Volt and my laptop.
A quick fix
My Apollo x6 went down completely unexpectedly. I was stuck with projects pending, while UA and I troubleshooted the unit. It took several days of going thru the process. I couldn’t be without an interface. So, I bought a VOLT2 and had it FedEx shipped. Plug & play - absolutely. My Mac system recognized it and I continued back to work, while I awaited the replacement of my Apollo. The shortcoming is that I couldn’t use any of the ton of UA plug-ins that I already had purchased, while using the Volt. Later, while on a trip, I plugged the VOLT2 into my traveling rig - a MacBook Air. The volt worked great and I actually tried out recording a guitar to the direct in. Spiffy and stupid-cheap!
My volt two interface does not work when I plug my stratocaster to it. I turn off the headphone volume and I turn up the gain for the input jack I'm using. No dice,ouch !!!!!

Aún soy estudiante y soy principiante en este mundo de la producción pero esta interfaz es una maravilla, quedé muy a gusto con ella.
Perfect for my MacBook Pro
Use this for portable reason and it works perfectly. Added option with Satellite processors would have great.
Perfect service, perfect product, definitely recommending it to everyone! Thank you
perfect interface !!!
the best interface of all times , high quallity !!!!
Great quality at great price
I used a Focusrite in the past and when I saw the Volt on the store shelf I was like: nice finally a great build/solid build at the same price as cheap plastic stuff :) Couldn't help but buy it! I am delighted by the toughness of the thing. I often travel for recording or use it as an output for playback on my mac and it always serves me well! Thanks UA!
Аналогов этому качеству пока не существует
