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