Most connections are hidden round the back – including MIDI In and Out – although the instrument and headphone jacks are conveniently positioned on the sides. The mic preamps themselves use a new high-voltage design from dbx, with a maximum gain of 58dB. The pretty small price tag of this unit, and small latency times, coupled with great preamps and great conversion make it in my opinion, the best interface Read full review. The Unit Itself The build quality of this unit is excellent. The rest on the frequency range seems quite true to the source, and I’ve been really happy with the early results I’ve had on vocals and acoustic guitar. The U22 has a solid, chunky metal chassis, and feels at home betwixt keyboard and screen. The unit looks awesome and the leds for input and output levels are a nice touch.

Plugging into the instrument jack automatically engages input 1, and there’s a useful LED indicator just below the gain knob, in case you forget that it’s active.
The most interesting piece has to be Lexicon’s own Pantheon II reverb. Sonically, the U22 performs well, and there’s plenty of juice in the mic preamps i-onid most situations. This allows me to record guitar through amp simulators, and do midi work with ease.
It’s larger than it looks in the photo, about a foot long and about 4 inches tall The knobs all turn slowly, and feel quite solid. No software monitoring options. The Unit Itself The build quality of this unit is excellent. The Ionix range of three desktop-friendly audio interfaces is the company’s latest offering – they’re all designed to sit between your computer keyboard and monitor.

This item doesn’t belong on this page. After this it worked perfectly, and had automatically set itself up is the default sound card. Response on both guitar and soft synths controlled by a midi keyboard is pretty much instant, which makes it really easy to work with.
They also are fairly large, and spaced far enough apart that you won’t accidentally change the wrong one. All of the inputs feel solidly built as well, which is reassuring in regards to this unit’s lifespan.
People who bought this also bought. The dbx 60 V microphone preamps in this desktop recording interface let you capture sound from any source and deliver clear output. Latency Of course the latency ii-onix an interface and i-omix a phenomenal unit into a paperweight, but I happy to report that I’ve been able to achieve quite low latency 19ms roundtrip on my 2.
The U22 is solid, if underpowered, but we won’t deny that its physical attributes give it a lot of appeal. The mic preamps themselves i-onlx a new high-voltage design from dbx, with a maximum gain of 58dB.
The lack of digital connections on a unit at y22 price is surprising, however, and coupled with the fact that there’s no additional software monitoring, it doesn’t feel as well spec’d as similarly-priced alternatives. With only MB of content included, it doesn’t exactly set the world on fire, plus you’re limited to one basic drum kit and one percussion kit. Expensive considering feature set.
Though it’s i-onux of plastic, it seems very durable, and is pretty heavy for it’s size. It’s conversion was equally good when running a guitar direct into it and through an amp simulator.

Both mic inputs can supply 48V phantom power a single switch activates both channels and, once again, there’s a front panel LED indicator.
From installation onward, I’ve been surprised at how easy i-oni use and good sounding this interface is. The installation ran and eventually asked me to plug the interface in, then shortly after to reboot. Our Verdict The U22 is solid, if underpowered, but we won’t deny that its physical attributes give it a lot of appeal.
Obviously, you’ll need to leave space for cabling, but the side access for headphones and instrument jack makes perfect sense. As is the case with most interfaces nowadays, the U22 comes bundled with some free software. Great Easy to use Interface!
The i–onix small price tag of this unit, and small latency times, coupled with great preamps and great conversion make it in my opinion, the best interface Read full review.
Tactile interface with stylish metering. To start, the installation of the drivers was very easy on Windows Vista, though it did take a while.
However, this isn’t the i-knix point where it becomes detrimental on some sources. Eve n music streamed over the internet seemed better defined and clearer, though this did expose how compressed the high end is in streaming music. The fact that the monitor mix affects both the ‘phones and main output could be slightly annoying but, on a more positive note, there’s a very useful switch that determines whether or not i-onox inputs are blended to mono for the monitor feed or hard panned.
