Sale price$199.00


Record or livestream songs, podcasts, and commentary in high resolution to your Mac/Windows computer or iOS mobile device with the TASCAM US-1x2HR, a desktop 2x2 USB Type-C audio interface designed to deliver comfortable, user-friendly operation, clean audio quality, and simultaneous input of a mic and an instrument for home recordists and traveling content creators.

With its single Ultra-HDDA mic preamp and 1/4" line/Hi-Z input, the US-1x2HR allows you to track or overdub two different sources at the same time. Phantom power is onboard for condenser mics and LED signal/peak indicators are provided to help you properly set levels. Use the rear-panel RCA inputs to record an unbalanced line-level signal from a DJ mixer, media player, or mixing console. The stereo RCA line outs and 1/4" headphone output enable monitoring through speakers, headphones, or both, each with its own level control. Additional feature enhancements include virtual loopback for podcasting and livestreaming, zero-latency direct monitoring, and an empowering software bundle.
