Hi, I have a UR12 on my computer to replace an old Edirol / Roland UA101.
I have a very weird distortion coming from the UR12. Audio will be OK for a few minutes then it gets a strange digital distortion. The audio is still coming through but it sounds like some of the Least Significant Bits are being scrambled but the Most Significant Bits are ok. The sound therefore messes up the higher frequencies completely but is still identifiable. After a minute or so it’s like it goes back into phase / sync again and the audio is OK. Then the process repeats. It seems like a very bad hardware or firmware design flaw.
Unfortunately I am unable to return the item to the seller but I can see other people are experiencing issues with this product. Is there an official statement from Steinberg, this is very disappointing.
It sounds like you are experiencing a similar issue. Reverting to the previous driver (1.9.5) seems to be a workaround for now. I am running 1.9.5 and the distortion is completely gone. 1.9.4 also works fine.
Thanks, that has worked. V1.9.6 driver is bad for me under Windows 10 and causes scrambling of the audio. V1.9.5 sounds normal. Hopefully Steinberg / Yamaha can figure out the bug and resolve it so we can also use newer versions of the driver when they are released.
