Zero Lag

Lag, or latency, is the delay between playing a note and the computer reproducing it. In simple terms, if you play a note and don’t instantly hear it back, you have lag. Lag can throw off your timing, your rhythm, and make it near impossible to record properly. The U-PHORIA has Zero Lag monitoring, meaning that you will instantly hear what you play. Additionally, the U-PHORIA UMC1820 features dual headphone outputs. These have with separate level controls and monitor A/B source select for DJ-style cueing.

Midas Preamps and Multiple Channels

The Midas preamps on the U-PHORIA are top studio-quality preamps. This will ensure that what you record sounds the way it should. The interface will in no way colour the tone of what you are recording.
The addition of phantom power means that you can use any mic without worrying about whether or not it is compatible.
The U-PHORIA has 18 inputs and 10 outputs (I/O). This means that unless you are recording choirs or orchestras, you are unlikely to run out of channel space. This means that you can, if you need to, do a live recording of an entire band.
