New Volt Studio Packs

Volt Studio Packs include Universal Audio’s Volt 2 or Volt 276 recording interface, a large-diaphragm condenser microphone with stand mount and mic cable, closed-back studio headphones, plus an industry-leading software bundle so you can start making music right out of the box.  

All Volt interfaces feature a ‘Vintage Mic Preamp Mode’ modelled after UA’s 610 preamp, which in UA’s own words gives you the rich, full sound of this classic UA mic/line/instrument preamp. This analog tube emulation circuit can be optionally engaged in either of the mic/instrument channels via a dedicated front panel switch. 

Volt 176, Volt 276 and Volt 476 also feature an onboard compressor circuit derived from UA’s classic 1176 Limiting Amplifier. Compressor operation is handled via four top panel buttons with presets suited to voice, guitar, a fast mode, and bypass.  

The Volt 76 series also feature wooden side panels for a striking retro aesthetic, consistent with other UA devices such as the OX amp top box. In addition to the smaller 1 and 2 input models (Volt 176 and Volt 276), there is also a larger 4 input model (Volt 476) with an extra 2 line inputs on the rear, and a total of 6 lines outputs, including the 2 monitor outputs common across the range. 

All models except for the largest Volt 476 are bus powered, and all feature 5-pin MIDI in and out, and can handle audio conversion at up to 24bit 192Khz. 

All Volt models also include an impressive software bundle covering everything from virtual instruments by UJAM and Spitfire, to guitar/bass amp emulation from Softube and Plugin Alliance, to mixing and mastering processors, as well Ableton Live Lite for multitrack recording.
