TASCAM USB Audio / MIDI Interface US-2×2

Tascam

-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.

 

 

New Update: Settings Panel for Windows

US-2x2

TASCAM USB Audio Interfaces Driver (Settings Panel) software for Windows has been updated to Version 4.00, enabling to build music production environments with ultra-low latency that maximizes the processing power of the computers in use. In this new version, the driver’s stability has been greatly enhanced, the audio buffer size is now selectable up from 4 samples instead of older versions with the default buffer size of 64 samples, and overall usability has been improved.

* Version 4.00 functions are limited to Windows only.

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.

New functions added to Version 4.00
* Version 4.00 functions are limited to Windows only.

Audio buffer size selectable up from 4 samples
US-2x2

With conventional TASCAM drivers, the audio buffer size could only be set originally up from 64 samples. This has been enhanced to support a selection up from 4 samples, enabling users to build music production environments with ultra-low latency that maximizes the processing power of the computers in use. Users can now choose from a wide range of parameters, from a minimum of 4 samples up to a maximum of 2048 samples, depending on the computer’s processing power and music production application.

Software window size optimization enabled by HiDPI support
US-2x2

The newly implemented HiDPI (high-dot per inch) function automatically optimizes the size of the Settings Panel window to an appropriate size according to the user’s display. No more small appearing of the Settings Panel in a high-resolution display.

“Auto Driver Select” function enables/disables default device settings
US-2x2

Easily activate/deactivate US-series units set as the default IN/OUT audio device in a computer with the new Auto Driver Select function. Activating this function, the computer will always recognize the US unit as default and will allow saving some trouble in setting the device each time. Users can freely choose to disable this function to use different devices depending on the application.
