Innovative mobile design

The ability to power the Zoom U-22 from a laptop via USB bus power qualifies the U-22 as the perfect companion for recording with a laptop or iPad*, as does its handy and compact design. The innovative design provides quick access to the connectors, knobs and switches for effortless operation and ease of use.

Pristine recording and playback quality

The U-22 is equipped with a powerful, low-noise microphone preamplifier (-120 dBu ON) identical to those found in the popular H6 Handy Recorder. This enables resolutions of up to 24 bit/96 kHz during recording and playback. In addition, you can also use the U-22 as a studio-quality headphone amplifier to enjoy your favorite music in the best quality at any time.

The Zoom U-22 is a high-quality and mobile audio interface for recording and playback, which impresses with an innovative, handy and portable 2-channel design. High-quality recordings with your iPad or laptop are thus easily possible at any location. The U-22 features a high-quality, low-noise microphone preamplifier that is excellent for recording vocals, instruments, and more, with pristine recording quality at 24-bit/96 kHz resolution. The U-22 audio interface offers exactly the same high-quality sound as the U-24 and U-44 interfaces, but in a much more compact format.

The connection options

The U-22's XLR/TRS combo input can be used for recording with a microphone or a line-level signal. In addition, 48 V phantom power can be added, and high-impedance guitars, basses, and other passive instruments can be connected thanks to the Hi-Z input. The U-22 also has a stereo input, so you can also record from sources such as a tablet PC, mixer, or portable audio device.

Enhance your live performance

The U-22 is the perfect companion for musicians who want to process audio signals in your computer with effects in real time, or incorporate pre-recorded sounds into your live performance. Connect your interface to your laptop or iPad, open your software effects or a looper, and send the processed signal to a mixer or PA system via the RCA outputs.

Latency-free monitoring

Thanks to the U-22's Direct Monitoring switch, it's possible to monitor the audio signal directly before it's sent to the computer - this way you'll be able to record and mix with zero latency. Separate RCA outputs and an independent headphone output provide multiple monitoring options.

More creativity with your U-22

Ableton Live 9 Lite included Combine the U-22 with Ableton Live 9 Lite to have everything a musician needs today. With this combination, you can quickly and intuitively record your tracks and continue to edit them with studio-grade effects like EQ, compressor, reverb, delay, chorus, filters, and more.
