Introduction
A Message From the
Development Team
Thank you for choosing the UR28M USB Audio
Interface. The UR28M brings the sum total of our
experience and know-how together with
invaluable feedback from our customers
throughout the world. Throughout the Yamaha nseries and Steinberg MR series our focus has
been on integrating consistently outstanding
sonic design with features and software that are
truly useful from a musician’s perspective. The
UR28M carries on this uncompromising
approach, offering refined sound and
functionality in a compact unit.
With the goal of creating a product that would be
of maximum value for the longest time in mind,
the development process began with in-depth
review of the many comments received from
users as a starting point for the design and basic
specifications. Visual design, the feel of buttons
and knobs, trial-and-error sonic evaluation of
parts, and seamless software integration are just
some of the elements to which every member of
the development team devoted their full attention
and passion. The entire team is rightly proud of
the results, and we are delighted to be able to
offer this product to our valued customers.
But this is just the beginning. The most important
chapter unfolds when our customers use the
product to support and augment their creativity,
making it a part of their musical lives. Our
greatest hope is that we are able to contribute in
some way to the creation and expression of new
music that will bring our customers’ artistic vision
to life.
