2-in/2-out Audio/MIDI Interface with HDDA Mic Preamps and iOS Compatibility

TASCAM's US-2x2 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-2x2 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. The interface includes two DAW applications to choose from - both Cakewalk SONAR X3 LE and Abelton Live Lite 9.

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.
