Complete with 4in-4out capability, compatibility with some of Zoom's incredible input capsules, MIDI capability and more, the Zoom U-44 will leave you wanting for nothing.

Further to this, the U-44 also comes complete with MIDI in-out connectivity so you can capture musical data from an attached MIDI instrument without the need for a separate interface.
The Zoom U-44 also has phantom power capability meaning you can use virtually any microphone you like - if it requires power or not. All recording is done at incredibly high (and selectable) sample rates between 44.1 and 96kHz so that you get perfect professional grade audio.
