1-in/2-out Audio & MIDI Interface with HDDA Mic Preamps and iOS Compatibility
TASCAM’s US-1x2 brings great quality desktop recording to a price never before possible. It features a high-quality Ultra-HDDA microphone preamp as well as a 1/4” line input - switchable to instrument level for guitar or bass.
In addition, both stereo line inputs and outputs are found on the rear panel for fast an easy connection of all of your existing audio gear. The unique design of the bio-cell side panels angles the US-1x2 up from the desktop for easier usability and - to make sure that you are up and running in minutes - both Steinberg Cubase LE and Cubasis LE are also included.
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 preamp on the US-1x2 makes your tracks sound like a record.
Discrete Ultra-HDDA Mic Preamp Delivers Low Noise and Low Distortion
TASCAM's Ultra-HDDA (High Definition Discrete Architecture) mic preamp design is based on discrete components, just like classic professional gear. They achieve an incredible EIN rating of –125 dBu, meaning their noise level is practically below the range of hearing. Other impressive specs include a signal-to-noise ratio of 101 dB, out-speccing anything in its price range. But instead of judging the design merely by test measurements, key components were selected following extensive listening tests.
The mic input features a professional XLR connector, which supplies +48V phantom power for condenser microphones. Built from heavy duty metal throughout, the US-1x2 stays put even when moving mics around and changing connections.
The combo input jack includes TRS inputs for balanced line-level signals from professional processors and synthesizers. Finally, the two inputs can be switched to high-impedance for direct recording of electric guitar and bass. (Only the XLR or 1/4" input can be used, not both at the same time.)
Wide Gain Range Supports Dynamic and Ribbon Microphones
Non-powered mics like dynamic and ribbon designs can sound great, but they also have a lower output level than condenser microphones. The US-1x2's Ultra HDDA mic preamps not only feature 57dB of gain, but also a low-noise design so you don't crank up the noise at the same time. Plug in modern or classic mics and still get plenty of level on your tracks.
High Resolution Recording up to 96kHz/24-bit
The US-1x2 records at up to 96kHz/24-bit resolution. Even if your target is CD or MP3, recording at higher resolutions gives you more to work with in the mix and can result in a smoother sound. Ensuring studio quality audio performance, the mic preamps and A/D converters work together to capture the clearest signal path, whether you work at 96k or at lower sampling rates.
USB 2.0 Computer Connection
USB 2.0, found on nearly any computer, is used as the interface for the US-1x2. Simply connect the interface to any available USB port to supply plenty of bandwidth, even for multichannel 96k work.
Zero-latency Direct Monitoring Function
Even the most efficient computers and DAW software can produce a slight delay before reaching the outputs, which can distract some vocalists and instrumentalists. A Direct Monitoring path is included to monitor the input signal before it is sent to the computer. This allows musicians to concentrate on their performance instead of adjusting for latency delay.
Sleek industrial design that inspires creativity with a practical interface
Bio-Cell Side Panels Add Style and Ergonomic Design
The US-1x2 features removable Bio-Cell Side Panels developed by renowned industrial designers The Box. These unique panels serve a dual purpose and add a striking look to the interface as well as angling it on the desktop for increased usability.
The angled design is optmized for deskptop viewing and operation much more comfortable than other interfaces with controls on the top or front of the device. The unique design of the TASCAM US series places these at a natural angle, making operation easier and keeping the creative flow going.
Class-Compliant Drivers for use with iPad and Other Tablets
The US-1x2 is built with class-compliant drivers built into the units. Not only does this mean that they can be used with many computers without first installing a driver, they also open the possibilities of with tablets such as Apple's iPad.
Connect to iPad, iPhone, or other iOS devices
Use Apple's Camera Connection Kit to connect the US-1x2 to an iPad or other iOS device. Utilitze the multichannel audio with any of the thousands of iOS audio apps, like Garage Band or TASCAM's Portastudio app. Class Compliant drivers also allow the interfaces to be used with Android and Windows-based tablets. Playback form the iPad, such as synthesizer apps, sound bigger and smoother through the interface than going through the headphone output alone.
