Zoom U-22 Audio Interface


The Go Everywhere Audio Interface

The U-22 is the essential mobile recording and performance interface, with an innovative 2-in/2-out ultra-portable design that makes it easy to connect to a laptop or an iPad and create great-sounding audio anywhere.

The interface features a high-performance, low-noise mic preamp so you can record vocals, instruments, and more with pristine sound quality, at resolutions up to 24-bit/96 kHz. The U-22 delivers the same excellent sound as our U-44 and U-24, with an even more compact form factor.

 

Innovative Handy Design 

The U-22 can be bus-powered via USB and its compact form factor is perfect for use with a laptop or iPhone/iPad*. The innovative design provides quick access to connectors, knobs, and controls for effortless setup and operation.

* Requires 2 AA batteries or optional AC adapter for power, plus an Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit or Lightning-to-USB Camera Adapter for connection to iPhone/iPad.

 

Pristine Recording and Playback

The U-22 features a single high-performance, low-noise mic preamp, the same as our acclaimed H6 Handy Recorders, with less than -120 dBu EIN, as well as recording and playback at resolutions up to 24-bit/96 kHz. You can also use the U-22 as a studio-quality headphone amp and listen to your favourite music in full fidelity.

 

Get Connected

The U-22’s XLR/TRS combo input can be used to record with a microphone or line-level source, with 48V phantom power, and Hi-Z support for connecting a guitar or bass. The U-22 is also equipped with a mini stereo input so you can record an iPhone/iPad, mixer, or other portable audio devices.

*The U-22 can record one input at a time. When recording from the LINE IN jack, the XLR/TRS combo input is disabled.

 

Power Your Live Performance

The U-22 is the perfect audio companion for musicians who incorporate digital audio processing or pre-recorded sound elements into their live performances. Connect your interface to a laptop or iPhone/iPad, pull up software effects or a looper, and send your processed signal to a mixer or the house PA via RCA stereo outputs.

 

Zero-Latency Monitoring

For zero-latency recording and mixing, the U-22’s direct monitoring switch allows you to hear your signal before it passes through the computer. Separate RCA output jacks and an independent headphone output provide multiple options for monitoring.

 

Create More with Your U-22

Bundled with Ableton Live Lite, the U-22 has everything the modern music creator needs. This integrated software lets you record tracks quickly and intuitively, enhancing them with studio-quality effects like EQ, compression, reverb, delay, chorus, filter, and more. Plus, Ableton’s performance workflows let you take your music to the stage where you can mix and record live.

Cubasis LE, a 4-track audio recording/editing/mixing app for iPad with an intuitive ‘touch’ user interface, is now available for the U-22.
