      What a difference

      Wow, so blown away. The difference from the Focusrite solo to this is unbelievable. Absolutely love my 276 and really enjoy working with Luna now as well. Great job!

      Best áudio interface

      The best áudio interface I’ve ever had. Way ahead of the competition, and I love the compressor.

      Very good audio interface

      At first I hesitated several audio interfaces until I came across this one by pure chance, the audio quality is incredible, excellent voice recordings due to the 76 compressor and vintage integration, just a shame that we sometimes hear noises that squeaks but nothing bad once well mixed, in any case I recommend without hesitation its Volt series, thank you UAD

      Clean

      Very clean sound. Instantly recognizable difference from my other interfaces when I use the Volt 276. Vocals are also easy to record. Great tracking with the onboard 1176.

      Volt 2 76 compressor stage

      Product as you would expect very good etc etc

      the compressor: I am recording multi-track live strings.
      I accidentally left the compressor option engaged.
      By my estimation the circuit adds 5-8db of background noise, which is terminal for multitracking - it's exactly the type of noise one could confuse with driving a mic signal too hard on input; the difference between say, -56 to -48.
      It took me an entire session- which was spent mucking about with input gains - to find it was the compressor at the last minute. The 'vintage' option seems ok. Noice.

      i am happy with VOLT 276 so far

      I am in South Korea and just started bedroom(?) recording.
      I did buy this one for the classical outfit for the first time.
      now i have got some more pros while i am using this audio interface.
      especially headphone sound is very good through VOLT 276.
      I will recommend this to my friends.

      if you can make it, please update loopback for VOLT 276 in the future.

      Thanks

      Awesome!

      I love it, I think it's one of the most useful and professional gear for Home Studio music producers, the sound of this piece of gear is amazing everything is crystal clear with it and the comp sounds great! I'm still exploring it but it's very cool until now

      Good little interface

      The preamps are clean and clear, and can get grindy with vintage mode and the compressor engaged when you push them. I’ve had the ASIO driver fail a few times, but simply reselecting it in my DAW fixed the issue each time. Headphone amp is very decent for the price point. Overall for the $250 I spent on this interface it exceeds expectations. This is a budget interface and runs off the USB C buss power, if you keep that in mind and don’t expect miracles from this box then you will be pleased.

      Gran interfaz

      Soy músico e ingeniero de sonido, he grabado gran parte de mi álbum con esta interfaz, el cuerpo que le da el compresor es increíble para el precio que tiene, y la conversión A/D es de una calidad considerable, he utilizado procesadores externos y la conversión es fiel al sonido real, es una gran compra.

      Poor quality all the way around

      The audio control knob sounds of static when turning while audio is playing. Multiple reports of this online I've found. Also, the INST boost button for channel 2, on the front of the unit makes a humming sound when it's engaged. You really do get what you pay for.

      Superb audio quality match by easy of use

      Superb audio quality match by easy of use. I was blown away by the quality of sound as compared to my previous, entry level unit from another company. The installation was amazingly fast and adding all the plugins could not have been easier. The compressor and preamp add such warmth to the recordings.

      Best interface I’ve used

      This is my third interface, and it’s been the most pleasing to use. The guitar input has enough headroom for my hottest pickups, where another interface did not. It works great with an M1 Mac, samples at 32. No issues. No latency concerns when recording several guitar and vocal tracks. Sound from headphones is very pleasant, and it gets loud and fun with any of mine. I haven’t used the midi inputs. Two missing options that would make this a perfect home device are - separate phantom power per input; loop back function. Otherwise this is serving me well and I’m truly enjoying making music with it.

      BEST STARTER INTERFACE!!!!

      I love the volt sound, I previously had a volt 1 and then proceeded to upgrade later that week too the volt 276, not only did I enjoy and fall in love with the sound quality but the warmth and depth the compressor added to not only vocals but my guitars too was truly remarkable for the price point the volt 276 sits at.
