In time for Winter NAMM, Steinberg announces the release of the new, rackmountable AXR4U audio interface, providing a USB-C alternative to the already available AXR4T Thunderbolt interface. Steinberg today presented its latest audio interface for the first time at the NAMM show in Anaheim. The AXR4U audio interface provides USB 3.0 data transfer with USB-C connectivity. Featuring highest audio quality, DSP effects to monitor the sound with various signal processors alongside hybrid microphone preamps and Rupert Neve Designs SILK technology, the AXR4U can rightly be called a true next-generation audio interface.

The AXR4U’s front side provides four easily accessible Neutrik combo inputs and two headphone outputs with individually adjustable level controls. The rear panel comes with eight TRS line inputs and eight TRS line outputs. Also available are two pairs of ADAT I/O doubling as S/PDIF, the second of which provides an alternative AES/EBU Sub-D connector. Overall, this counts to 28 channel inputs and 24 channel outputs. By also factoring in its MIDI input/output and word clock ports — featuring advanced SSPLL (Super Suppression Phase Locked Loop) jitter reduction technology — the AXR4U interface offers comprehensive input and output options that make it the perfect choice for musicians and producers of project studios and larger recording facilities. And with Yamaha’s customdesigned SSP3 chip and the latest, most refined drivers, the AXR4U ensures high fidelity at a very low latency.

The AXR4U connects to Cubase, Nuendo and other DAWs through a USB-C connector with the USB 3.1 Gen 1 SuperSpeed standard, providing reliable and seamless connectivity to both Mac and PC computers.

The AXR4U is available through Steinberg resellers and the Steinberg Online Shop. The suggested retail price for the AXR4U audio interface is 2,599 Euro.
