TASCAMs iU2 is a premium sound quality audio interface for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. It includes all of the features of TASCAMs best-selling USB audio interfaces, including a pair of precision audio microphone inputs. The XLR inputs have phantom power for use with high-quality condenser microphones. These feed an onboard microphone preamp and A/D converter for better sound performance than those built into iPhone and iPad “ true stereo recording with low noise and less tendency to distort. The inputs also accept line-level signals or you can plug a guitar or bass directly into your device.

In addition to compatibility with iOS devices, the iU2 also works with Mac and Windows computers. A zero-latency monitoring path allows musicians to hear themselves directly through the unit, without any distracting delay. Both MIDI in and out are provided to easily interface with synths and drum machines, and a digital output connects to digital mixers or recorders.

Premium-quality audio interface for your iOS device, that' ready for any studio.

    Comments about TASCAM iU2 Audio / MIDI Interface for iOS Devices:

    Purchased 6 months ago. Does not and has not ever worked correctly with a PC. I have tried 2 seperate laptops and a desktop and I even did a format fresh install on a laptop of Win 7. Still recieved a constant pulse of noise from the IU2. (Also tried a range of mics) I do get some success with an Ipad. If your USB power is not perfect, the device will not work. Oddly, the most consistant success with IPAD has been powering thru a USB port on a laptop, and not a wall plug. TASCAM has completely discontinued this device and it is NOWHERE on thier website. It was an excellent idea and the price was reasonable when I purchased but it just does not work. Sorry folks, look elsewhere.
