URC got Update AXR4 Not!

So once again URC update. Version 3.0 brings not only new FX but also streaming drivers.

And AXR4 customers go out empty-handed again!

This is how Steinberg treats his customers of the flagship audio interface …



Year, would be nice to know @Stefan_Schreiber, if and when the AXR users can expect to receive an update, too.


Agreed. I spent a rediculous amount of money and then got hung out to dry. I’m really surprised that Steinberg is just dropping support. It will be impossibole to sell this unit at a decent price.

Also it was promised a while back that I could convert my firewire AXR4 to USB and then that offer was rescinded, so this unit is really becoming a dinosaur.

This has all been very disappointing.


Steinberg can continue to support this fine product and it’s users will appreciate it. They would do well for themselves to show good faith towards every product so users can trust the brand when they buy hardware.

Viva v3.0!


Its such a shame because the preamps and conversion are very nice. I love the sound of this thing! I mean how can Steinberg get attention from customer base if they have tendency to abandon hardware…?


Hello everyone.

I would like to express my regret that you, as customers of our AXR4 audio interfaces, feel that your needs have not been sufficiently considered.

We are working simultaneously on many different updates for many different product families. A release for a specific product family does not mean that updates for another product family will not be offered.

As you know, when developing our various audio interfaces, we have always taken care to use components that are optimally matched to the specific application. However, this also means that there are few synergy effects between the various product families in some respects. In this respect, effects or features that have been developed for a particular product family cannot simply be transferred to another product family without further development time.

Please be assured that we are also working on future updates for the AXR interfaces. Unfortunately, I cannot make a clear statement regarding a release date now.

Kind regards,
Stefan Schreiber


I bought my USB variant not long after they were discontinued. I knew it wouldn’t be a high priority compared to budget interfaces, but it’s a great tool as is, and I’m glad to hear it’s only going to get better. I hope you add the ability to do a better job saving and restoring the default DSP setup scene. Otherwise, I have very few issues with it.

this interface works very well. Let’s wait quietly for what happens next. THANKS

I’m eagerly awaiting the update for no reason at all. Here everything works perfectly. If it has 3.0 for the other cards, I want it too… I think it’s better to think about better musical things to produce without problems with this current drive than to wait for a new drive that won’t actually change anything in our lives… Good songs for all…
