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 iPhone/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 the Zoom U-44 and U-24, with an even more compact form factor.

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 preampthe same as our acclaimed H6 Handy Recorderswith 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 favorite music in full fidelity.

Get Connected
The U-22s XLR/TS 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 iPad, mixer, or other portable audio device.
*The U-22 can record one input at a time. When recording from the LINE IN jack, the XLR/TS 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-22s 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.

Includes Ableton Live 9 Lite
When you combine the U-22 with Ableton Live 9 Lite, you have everything the modern music creator needs. This combination lets you record tracks quickly and intuitively, enhancing them with studio-quality effects like EQ, compression, reverb, delay, chorus, filter, and more.

Wow. I use this mostly for recording on iPhone (GarageBand). This has a better build quality than the iRig stuff. Great for monitoring and recording instruments and mic. Zoom uses a pretty handy xlr/quarter inch combo input that works well and keeps a tidy profile on this device. Well designed, simple layout. Brings GarageBand alive. USB output and included cable great for pc recording. Needs Lightning to USB adaptor to plug into phone. Wish they included that. Otherwise, a really good product.
