You can easily drive two headphones split from the headphone output. You can also drive headphones directly from the analog outs on the back of the unit.

I don't think you could ever go wrong with uln2 or ANY Mertic Halo products

And I know this just my person opinion but unless you got 200k+ to build studio from scratch I don't think could buy or NEED anything better UlN2 or 8288 and then there the lin 8 (there is some as stuff as good)

One very HAPPY Uln 2 owner

Field recordings with ULN-2

Can the ULN-2 be powered with batteries for the use of field-recordings?

YES YOU CAN!

it has 4-pin XLR power port for compatibility with most location battery systems.

Shouldn't the specs be listed in the manual?

Yes. They weren't kidding when they called it a Mobile I/O. From the ULN2 Juicers Guide:

"One of ULN-2’s many great strengths is the flexibility of its power system. ULN-2 can be powered from any
DC source (including bus power) in the range of 9V to 30V as long as it provides 12 Watts of power. The
DC inputs on ULN-2 are a 2.1mm coaxial power connector, center positive and a 4-pin XLR connector Pin
4 Hot. So if you are powering the unit with a third party power source and it supplies 9V, the power source
will have to provide 1.4 amps of current. If you are powering the unit with 12V, the power source will have
to provide 1 amp of current, and so on."

What I love about the ULN2 is that it's extremely clean, fast, and quiet; has insert points/direct in's for each channel; has separate monitor and headphone outs and level controls; and stores 10 user-definable virtual mixer configurations -- including channel strips -- internally. And while the virtual mixer has to be programed with a Mac, the unit doesn't have to be connected to a Mac to use any of the virtual mixer configurations you've preset. So you can pack it up for a video shoot if you want. There's a real emphasis on squeezing as much versatility out of it as possible. And it works.

Hello,

I am looking at this unit as well an have some questions.

What if I wanted to hook up a midi controller to this, currently I have a usb controller but would like a full size piano, where would this go?

I am basically trying to compare the connectivity of my 002r to this unit.

midi

non of the metric interface do midi but there are loads cheap midi interfaces out there I just use midi to usb lead (£20 or less) with no probs if you got lots of midi stuff you want stand alone muti port midi interface anyway

Oh wow I am posting on high end lol (not sure I really am) I must have the cheapest high end set up (maybe new thread there)

Refurbished mac mini i5 apple store £425 + £96 for sdd replacement
Ebay metric halo uln 2 (non 2d) £400
Ebay midi usb lead £20
Ebay Logic express 8 £40
mac wired keyboard £40
korg midi keyboard had
Monitor (sound and screen), mouse I had
Home made base traps as pre ethan winer's web site
few mic's Se x1, sm57 and few other (need to get some better ones)

All in around 1k (Some of you spend that on lunch) for very usable home set up Talent is more import than gear (but i am still slut)

Think of adding hardware compressor any one use one with a ULN 2 would like second hand eylsia xpressor 500 if can find 2 space rack or api 2500 (funds and what come along) Any ideas comments welcome

Both the ULN8 and LIO have Midi I/O for control surfaces.

Sorry I did know the uln 8 and lio had midi just goes to show I not meant to be in high end just lucky to get great deal on very good bit of kit(ULN 2) and hopefully if I am ever good enough I get to play with the big boys toys

I guessing original question was about hooking up Uln2 and if it had midi in witch is defernet dose not but it you just want add 88 key midi keyboard the usb to midi leads are great ????

And if you have loads of gear Some form of muti port midi would be more use full but

Please correct me if you know better but there only the old mackie or tascam that are midi only left I am try to think of any of control surface that not usb or network now that you want to plug in ????
