Tascam US-2×2 USB Audio / MIDI Interface
2-in/2-out Audio/MIDI Interface with HDDA Mic Preamps and iOS Compatibility TASCAM’s US-2×2 combines great audio quality and ergonomic design for a powerful 2-in/2-out USB 2 Audio interface. Two of TASCAM’s Ultra-HDDA mic/line preamps provide up to 57dB of gain with nearly inaudible noise and distortion specs. The audio design features high-performance, musical components like NE5532 op amps for rich sound quality without coloring the source. The US-2×2 includes class-compliant drivers for plug-and-play operation on Mac OSX and iOS devices like the iPad, and a simple driver adds ASIO compatibility for Windows. MIDI in and out are also included for connecting synths, drum machines, and controllers. With solid audio specs, iOS compatibility, and an easy-to-read angled design, the US-2×2 is the ultimate 2-channel interface for home, project, and mobile studios. Ultra-HDDA Mic Preamps for Clear Audio Quality from All of Your Mics TASCAM’s own Ultra-HDDA mic preamps are the cleanest, quietest, and best-sounding from any interface in their range. A gain range of 57dB makes them ideal for any type of mic – dynamic, condenser, or ribbon. With preamp performance well beyond any interfaces in their price range, the Ultra-HDDA preamps on the US-2×2 makes your tracks sound like a record. Simple Operation and an All-New USB Driver TASCAM makes installing the US-2×2 a snap, whether usnig the built-in class-complient driver or the high-performance ASIO or Core Audio drivers. TASCAM started from scratch on the software, developing them in-house through extensive testing, resulting in our most robust drivers ever. Also included with the driver software is a simple-to-use on-screen control panel, which monitors and adjusts critical interface settings.
