OVERVIEW

2-channel audio interface with 2 Ultra-HDDA mic preamps and Cubase LE 9.

TASCAM's US-2x2 features a new ergonomic design and some of the best audio specifications available for the ultimate 2-channel interface for home, project, and mobile studios. A pair 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 2-in/2-out audio interface is powered through its USB 2.0 connection or an optional power adapter. Driverless operation is possible 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 Cubase LE 9. 

With Cubase LE you can turn your Mac or PC into a beautiful and easy-to-use music studio. This compact DAW offers you all the basic tools for recording, editing and mixing everything from the initial musical idea to the final track. Cubase LE assists you during the creative process — whether you are a songwriter, guitar player, vocalist or electronic music producer, Cubase has the right tools and features at hand.

With solid audio specs, iOS compatibility, and an easy-to-read angled design, the US-2x2 is the perfect choice for desktop and mobile studios.

FEATURES
  • Two mic/line inputs
  • Two Ultra-HDDA mic preamps
  • Two balanced line outputs
  • Built-in DSP mixer for low-latency mixing
  • Supports both Mac and Windows
  • Includes Cubase LE 9 production software

This came up as a Stupid Deal of the Day at the same time I happened to need another interface for home recording. All the reviews (here and elsewhere) looked good, plus I've never had even one problem with Tascam products, so I took a chance. No problem getting it working with my Mac and Garageband, and I like it as much as the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 which I use on my other Mac. So far it's working great, no extraneous noise whatsoever...this thing is just as quiet as it oughta be. Highly recommended.

The sound quality is great but there are all sorts of driver issues that make it a pain to record what you want. There is a control panel in Windows that is sometimes responsive that lets you turn off signal for one of the inputs, etc but it should really be physical switches. Also if I am recording in one program and want to switch I need to either disconnect or disable the unit and then reconnect it for it to switch. It should be seamless.

      Comments about Tascam US-2x2 USB Audio Interface:

      This is a great unit for the price.It feels sturdy and reliable with an easy headphones monitoring

      Tascam has a way of making things simple about their gear. I just plugged it right into to my Macbook Pro without any drivers etc.

      My first Multi-track, as well as my first audio interface, were a Tascam and it's always good to be back. I feel at home again. The 2X2 is not your total high end stuff, but it can hold it's own for any novice to professional home studio.

      It is also portable enough for an on site iPad recording as well..with an optional AC adapter, that is.

        Comments about Tascam US-2x2 USB Audio Interface:

        Set up is a breeze with Mac. Does take a little patience to get settings just right - but excellent recordings are achieved with Garage Band. Great for practice, song arrangement, and rehearsal. Well matched with appropriate investment in quality studio speakers and condenser microphones.

        Comments about Tascam US-2x2 USB Audio Interface:

        I picked this up from a Deal of the Hour during Thanksgiving. Mondo savings! I bought this with the intentions of recording demos to show my band mates my vision for some original songs. It works swimmingly! They were impressed with what can be done with only this interface and GarageBand. I only gave it 4 stars because its kinda picky about communicating with my older ipad. When I got it figured out, recording got VERY easy. I love it!

          Comments about Tascam US-2x2 USB Audio Interface:

          I amazed at the sound quality of this unit! I've never heard ANY device that reproduces music like this - especially bass instruments. Cellos sound excellent. I listened to the entire 'Stanley Clarke' album - it was awesome.

            Not intuitive. Did not come with free download license for Ableton Live as offered in the product description. To get started you have to go to TASCAM ugly website and guess which software drivers to use.

                This is a simple device and I don't see how anyone can think it is hard to use. I bought this unit about 1 1/2 years ago and have not had the slightest problem with it. Sounds great and durable so what more could you ask for?
