Gain settings can be saved as one of six internal presets for such common applications as recording full drumsets and pulling live mixer feeds.

And for mobile recording convenience, the UC has two (2) onboard microphone preamps to allow you record stereo guitars & drums, field material, or direct electric bass without packing your whole rig.
