Some of the better-known names in the USB audio interface market, such as Focusrite, undoubtedly provide quality products; there is no doubting that. That is not to say that sometimes the lesser-known companies offer good quality for a competitive price. In this article, we will review the budget-priced moukey USB 3.0 audio interface.
- 48kHz/24-bit: As an entry-level audio processor, the 48kHz/24-bit recording format ensures lower noise and achieves high-quality audio reproduction, meeting the key functions required by contemporary music and producers. Newly designed microphone preamplifier with +48V phantom power (need to be turned on when using condenser microphones but only support condenser microphones without build-in sound card)

This snazzy little audio interface from moukey certainly offers you tons of features and for the relatively budget-friendly price of just below $70.
The Moukey USB 3 .0 audio interface Works with both Windows and Apple computers and mobile devices, which are nice to have features.
The Moukey usb audio interface is built with a metal case which is a big surprise. This audio interface is built with quality construction and feels very well made. We also liked how the control knobs do not feel cheap or clunky, or slippery, and they have a sturdy feeling grip on them.
Not only does the moukey audio interface look incredible with its sleek design, but we also love that it’s so compact! The dimensions of the moukey audio interface are approximately 5 x 5.5 inches and weigh under 2 pounds.
Inputs and features
For those who want an audio interface with good features, we can tell you that the moukey USB 3.0 audio interface is not lacking luster. 48kHz/24-bit comes with a microphone preamplifier with +48V phantom power for condenser microphones.
The Unit is powered with the included USB 3.0 Cable for an easy plug and play connection for multiple devices. The Moukey audio interface does not need any drivers to be operated; we plugged it into our windows 10 PC and automatically started downloading drivers.
From our time with the Moukey audio USB interface, this entry-level unit competes well against several higher-priced interfaces on the market. If you’re looking for the best audio interface that is not a toy and won’t break the bank, you can’t go wrong with this moukey audio interface. However, if you want to go with a brand with a proven track record, UMC202HD is a solid option.
