Universal Audio has expanded its Volt audio interface series with the Volt 4 and Volt 476p, two new solid 4-channel USB-C audio interfaces
Last year in October, Universal Audio released the Volt series, new small, very neatly equipped USB-C audio interfaces.
Now there is an addition to the popular Volt series. In the form of 4-channel versions. Again a more straightforward, less expensive, and a more feature-rich version.
Volt 4 & Volt 476P
Both new Universal Audio releases are 4-channel audio interfaces with many identical features but significant differences. They are both bus-powered USB interfaces with a USB-C connection. Both the Volt 4 and Volt 476P feature the same audio converters, which work with 24-bit and 192 kHz resolution. They also offer the switchable vintage mic preamp mode that gives your microphone signals the sound character of a UA 610 preamp.
There is also phantom power on both interfaces that can be activated separately. On the backside, they also share the same MIDI input and output connectivity on the good old DIN format. Also, the outputs are the same: you get four outputs on jack plugs plus two additional outputs for the monitor signal making in total of 6 outputs.

Additional two line inputs are on the back in jack format. Plus, on the front, you get an adjustable headphone output. It is operated entirely via rotary controls and vintage-inspiring glowing buttons that look really nice
Universal Audio Volt 476P
The Volt 476P is, let’s say, the premium version of the Volt 4 series. It has four analog preamps for each input channel and offers two separate adjustable headphone outputs. Besides the vintage mic preamp mode, which is available on both versions, you get here an exclusive compressor emulation based on the UA 1176. Perfect for adding a bit of punch to your vocals and instruments.
It also has the same operating concept, only the arrangement is different. The control elements are here on the top of the interface, plus you get retro wooden side panels.
A logical step after already releasing the two-channel version of the Volt series. Solid audio interface with some excellent extra features.
Universal Audio Volt 4 is now available for 259€ and Volt 476P for 469€. Until October 31st, you get $400 in UAD plugins for free with any VOLT USB audio interface purchase.
