TASCAM intros US-2×2 & US-4×4 audio/MIDI interfaces

Related: , , , , , , , , Posted in news on Sep 19, 2014 - comment 0 comments

TASCAM has introduced the US-2×2 and US-4×4, two new USB audio/MIDI interfaces that combine great-sounding audio, solid drivers and innovative, functional design.

Tascam US-4x4

The US-2×2 is a 2-in/2-out USB interface, bus powered from your Mac or Windows computer. A pair of Ultra-HDDA mic preamps provide up to 57dB of gain and the best noise and distortion specs in their class. The audio design features high-performance, musical components like NE5532 op amps for rich sound quality without coloring the source. The US-4×4 adds two more Ultra-HDDA preamps and two more balanced line outputs for a total of four inputs and four outputs.

Both interfaces include class-compliant drivers for use with tablets like the iPad when using a power supply (included with the US-4×4, optional on the US-2×2.) The units require no driver installation on Mac OS X, and all-new high-performance drivers are being written in-house for Windows ASIO use. Each of the interfaces includes MIDI in and out, as well as two DAW applications to choose from – both Cakewalk SONAR X3 LE and Abelton Live Lite 9.

The all-aluminum case was designed by The Box design studio in Germany, and includes a pair of removable “bio-cell” side panels. In addition to their striking design, the side panels angle the interface towards you on a desktop. This angle makes the switches and knobs easier to read without twisting your neck around.

With solid audio specs, iOS compatibility, and an easy-to-read angled design, the US-2×2 is the perfect choice for desktop and mobile studios.

US-2×2 / US-4×4 features

  • Two (US-2×2) / four (US-4×4) high-quality Ultra-HDDA mic/line preamps with up to 57dB of gain.
  • Two-in/two-out (US-2×2) / four-in/four-out (US-4×4) USB 2.0 interface with up to 96kHz/24-bit resolution.
  • XLR/1/4” combination input jacks.
  • Zero-latency Direct Monitoring.
  • High-quality audio components like NE5532 op amps for 125dBu EIN and 105dB S/N ratio.
  • USB Audio Compliant 2.0 drivers for iOS compatibility.
  • Independent line out and headphone level controls.
  • MIDI Input and Output.
  • Aluminum body with angled design for better desktop visibility.
  • Optional power supply (US-2×2) / Power Supply included (US-4×4, required for use)
  • Includes SONAR X3 LE and Abelton Live Lite 9.
