UR22MKii win 11 bugs

Since I’ve installed windows 11 my audio interface (the 22 mkII) keeps on bugging.
When it bugs (when I have the latest driver installed) my audio interface sounds like it disconnecting and then reconnecting - after a phase like this I wont be able to hear anything or say anything to the mic unless I set the inputs and outputs all over again - it happens in a loop in small periods of time.
When I have the driver uninstalled it still bugs but now it sounds like the audio driver goes really bad quality for a few seconds and then back to normal. this happen over and over again over small periods of times as well.

Please help me figure this out - I believe this is a driver related issue because I’ve plugged my audio interface to my macbook where there is no driver installed and it sounds perfectly find over long periods of time (no bugs whatsoever)


Same issue here since one week. When loading Cubase or any application in standalone mode such as BIAS FX or Neural DSP audio cuts for a period of time and multiple times audio is not longer available.

All drivers are up to date, restart of the devices etc.

I have removed ASIO and reinstalled the latest drivers available and this didn’t solve the issue. After I uninstalled the latest version 2.1.1 of the Yamaha driver and installed the previous version 2.0.3 (link here: Yamaha Steinberg USB Driver Updates and Downloads | Steinberg) the issue got resolved.

Its now over a year and it seems the issue has not been fixed yet.
I just recently installed Win 11 and literally getting the same problems.
After following the advice in this post by installing the previous version 2.0.3. the issue seems less apparent but I am still getting drop outs every few minutes and its really annoying.
I had no issues with Win 10 at all. And the fact that an older version works better then the intended newer version for win 11 is ridiculous.

I was just wondering if anyone else found another solution for that or If I can just hope Steinberg is reading this post and getting a fix out for Win 11.

Btw. I tried the latest version 2.1.5 at first but that gave me the worst experience. I heard that 2.1.4 might work better. Does any one knows how to get my hands on this older verison?

Welome to the forum.

I have no link for the 2.1.4 driver, but did you try to replace the Yamaha driver by asio4all or flexasio? They are Freeware/OpenSource drivers and can be downloaded here

Hi JuergenP

I have tried to use asio4all but I am getting other issues with. For example I am not able to listen to music in my browser and at the DAW at the same time. I am not sure if that is a setting?

Je pense avoir enfin trouver la réponse !
J’AVAIS EXACTEMENT LE MËME PROBLEME ! j’ai chercher partout et tout était correct que ce soit la carte son ou mon pc fixe, surtout que je ne rencontrait pas ce problème lorsque je l’utilisais sur mon pc portable ,

Du coup je me suis rendu compte que mon pc était brancher sur une multiprise plutôt ancienne j’ai juste acheter une nouvelle multiprise j’ai tout rebranché et magie ! tout fonctionne parfaitement depuis 2 jours maintenant , le soucis était donc que l’alimentation de l’ordinateur était instable ou insuffisante du coup ça créait ce bug !

Essayez de votre coté et dites moi est-ce que ç’est bon pour vous ?

I think I finally found the answer!
I HAD EXACTLY THE SAME PROBLEM! I looked everywhere and everything was correct whether it was the sound card or my desktop PC, especially since I did not encounter this problem when I used it on my laptop,

Suddenly I realized that my pc was plugged into a rather old power strip I just bought a new power strip I plugged everything back in and magic! everything has been working perfectly for 2 days now, so the problem was that the computer’s power supply was unstable or insufficient suddenly it created this bug!

Try it on your side and tell me is it good for you?
