Universal Audio adds two new 4-channel options to the Volt series with the new Volt 476p and Volt 4 audio interfaces. The Volt 476p offers four preamps and the 1176-inspired analog input compressor. The Volt 4 is a slimmed-down version of the 476 with two preamps and no built-in compressor.

When UA launched the Volt series in late 2021, the Volt 476 was the only 4-channel option available. The new Volt 476p is essentially the same interface, but with two additional mic preamps instead of the 476’s line inputs 3 and 4. With a total of four analog preamps with phantom power and Vintage Mode, it’s a great option for bands, producers, or podcasters who need to record more than two mics simultaneously. Each input channel also offers a built-in analog compressor based on the famous 1176, with three presets to choose from.

Apart from the two additional preamps, the 476p is identical to the standard 476. In addition to four line outputs, the USB-C interface offers a stereo monitor output, two headphone outputs with independent level controls, and MIDI In/Out. The monitor level is controlled by a large knob accompanied by a set of buttons for selecting the monitor source.

Until now, the Volt series didn’t include a 4-channel interface without the built-in compressor. The new Volt 4 is just that: a simpler and cheaper option for those who want more channels than the Volt 1 or Volt 2, but don’t need the compressor.

The Volt 4 offers two microphone/instrument inputs with preamps and Vintage Mode on the front side, and two additional line inputs on the back. In terms of outputs, it’s got two pairs of line outs, a stereo monitor output, and one headphone output. MIDI In/Out is also included.
