Yamaha continues to provide music production tools for a growing home/computer recording market with the introduction of the UW10 at Summer NAMM 2003. This highly compact USB audio interface is the perfect accessory for entry-level home and mobile computer recording applications, and is compatible with Windows 98, ME and XP formats.
Features include stereo S/PDIF optical I/O, two RCA analog inputs and outputs, and a headphone jack for quick and mobile monitoring. One of the strong points of the UW10 is the unique Trackdown feature. Virtual instruments--tracks generated by software--can be automatically mixed with audio tracks on the UW10 and sent directly to the computer to be saved as a single audio file, where they may then be used to create MP3 files or to burn CDs.
Currently available at authorized Yamaha dealers, the UW10 carries an MSRP of $159.
