Cakewalk USB interfaces

Cakewalk has introduced a variety of new USB audio interfaces; the UA-4FX, UA-25EX and UA-101. The UA-4FX is a portable 24-bit/96 KHz interface featuring Roland COSM preamp emulation and several built-in effects. The device integrates analog inputs and outputs, along with S/PDIF optical output with support for Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 formats.

The 4FX provides a multi-band compressor/limiter for mastering, an amp simulator and distortion/chorus/delay effects for guitar, center cancel control, reverb and noise suppression processing. Both MIDI and audio signals are sent to the computer on a single USB cable, which also provides the power.

The UA-25EX provides a 2x2 24-bit/96 KHz audio interface with mic preamps, balanced inputs and outputs, and an integrated low-noise power supply. The device features a new anolog compressor with variable attack times and controls for threshold, while a limited can be used to protect against clipping. Users can connect instruments or mics to two XLR/TRS jacks with phantom power.

The UA-101 half-rack interface enables recording and monitoring of ten simultaneous channels at 24-bit/96 KHz resolution, or six simultaneous channels at 24-bit/192 KHz. The device offers Neutrik XLR-TRS jacks, a Hi-Z connection, S/PDIF optical output, a headphone port and a five-LED indicator on the front panel. A built-in analog limited helps avoid clipping, while direct monitoring allows live listening without latency.

The UA-4FX, UA-25EX and UA-101 will be available in September. Cakewalk has not yet announced pricing information.
