Audio recorder manufacturer Tascam has launched the ‘ideal USB audio interface for entry-level users’.
The US-1x2 device enables users to record or stream vocals and a single instrument or stereo source to the internet, or archive a cassette tape collection at up to 96 kHz/24 bit using virtually any major DAW software or recording app under Windows, macOS or iOS.
The lightweight model features one microphone and one line/instrument input, plus an RCA unbalanced stereo input and output.
The interface can be operated in standalone mode for practice sessions when used with an external power supply, while a license for Cubase LE and Cubasis LE is also included.
The US-1x2 features the company’s ultra-HDDA mic preamp with very low input noise and a high gain range of 57dB for dynamic mics as well as phantom power for condenser mics. Further features include latency-free direct monitoring, a headphones output with level control, stereo/mono input monitor modes and a mute switch on the software settings panel.
