TASCAM USB3.0 Audio MIDI Interface with Mic Pre/Mixer Celesonic US-20×20

Tascam

20-in/20-out USB 3.0 Interface with Mic Pre and Digital Mixer Modes

TASCAM’ Celesonic US-20×20 packs 20 channels of analog and digital I/O into a single rackspace with great sounding preamps and USB 3.0/2.0 connectivity. Eight Ultra-HDDA microphone preamps provide 56dB of gain and high headroom to make microphones sound their best. Up to ten channels of digital I/O are included on ADAT and S/PDIF connectors, with word clock also provided for use with external clocks like TASCAM’s CG-1000. MIDI I/O allows use with controllers and synthesizers, and sample rates up to 192kHz/24-bit are supported.

New Update: Settings Panel for Windows

Celesonic US-20x20

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.

The TASCAM Celesonic US-20×20 is the first USB 3.0 interface to use class-compliant drivers for future-proof use with computers and tablets. A built-in DSP mixer includes parametric EQ and compression on every channel and a stereo reverb send for great-sounding monitor mixes. The DSP mixer can also be used as a live mixer or submixer with computer control. The US-20×20 has three operation modes – audio interface, digital mixer, and 8-channel digital mic preamp –for maximum flexibility.

Ultra-HDDA mic preamps deliver high headroom for dynamic tracks

TASCAM’s Ultra-HDDA mic preamps provide up to 57dB of gain with the highest headroom in their class. Meaning your tracks won’t be distorted before they even hit your computer, resulting in sweeter mids and deep soundstaging.

Popularized in TASCAM’s HS-P82 professional broadcast and film recorders, Ultra HDDA preamps have the performance to handle condenser, dynamic, and ribbon microphones. These versatile preamps also feature line-level inputs for keyboards and other equipment.

Sleek Industrial Design Inspires Creativity

We have applied the engineering expertise from years of making audio interfaces to create products that are both pioneering and practical. The slightly angled Bio-cell side panels provide users with excellent ergonomics and stimulate creativity. An adapter that supports rack-mounting is also included.

DSP mixer with 4-band EQ and compression on each input channel

Utilizing an Analog Devices BlackFin processor, the US-20×20 offers an advanced digital mixer. Every input has 4-band EQ, compressor, and low-cut filter. A stereo reverb processor is provided for dynamic headhone monitoring. The DSP mixer can store up to (10) snapshots as scenes – making it easy to recall mixer settings.

Three selectable modes included: interface/mic preamp/mixer

The versatile Celesonic US-20×20 is an Interface for multitrack recording using a personal computer and DAW, a standalone mic preamp, or a mixer for live performances or mixing keyboards. In mic preamp mode, the Ultra-HDDA preamps are sent to the ADAT Optical and S/PDIF digital outputs at up to 192kHz.
