TASCAM’s US-2x2 is the ideal desktop audio device for stereo recording. It features 2 mic preamps with a combo input, switchable for direct guitar or bass input, as well as zero-latency direct monitoring, headphone and line output, MIDI and iOS drivers.

2-In/2-Out USB Audio Interface
New to record on your home desktop computer or your iPad? The TASCAM US-2x2 is the perfect starting point to get the best stereo audio signals for your recordings. It features 2 high-quality Ultra-HDDA microphone preamp with combo XLR jacks (switchable to instrument level for guitar or bass), an all new USB driver to make for an easy installation (even on iPads, iPhones or other iOS devices), zero-latency direct monitoring, and both headphone and line output volume controls. MIDI in and out are also included. It comes bundled with Cubase LE for both Windows and Mac. With solid audio specs, iOS compatibility, and an easy-to-read angled design, the US-2x2 is the ultimate 2-channel interface for home, project, and mobile studios.

XLR and TRS Accept Balanced Mic and Line Level Signals
TASCAM's Ultra-HDDA  mic preamps design is based on discrete components, just like classic professional gear. It also has NE5532 op-amps, famously used throughout classic recording consoles and signal processors due to their sweet, musical sound. The XLR connector supplies +48V phantom power for condenser microphones. The combo input jacks 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). 

Simple Operation, Excellent Features
Installation of the US-2x2 is simple and fast, whether using the built-in class-complient driver or the high-performance ASIO or Core Audio drivers. Built from the ground up for superior audio performance, the software and driver suite of the TASCAM US-2x2 will keep your sessions running fast and smooth. The US-2x2 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. 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. Standard MIDI input and output connectors allow connection with the thousands of keyboards, drum machines, controllers, and other sources that employ MIDI connectors. The interfaces can also be used for synchronized operation of multitrack recorders and other external recording equipment. Use Apple's Camera Connection Kit to connect the US-2x2 to an iPad or other iOS device. To make sure that you are able to get up and recording as quickly as possible, the US-2x2 comes bundled with a copy of Steinberg's Cubase LE.
