Description

Record or livestream songs, podcasts, and commentary in high resolution to your Mac/Windows computer or iOS mobile device with the TASCAM US-2x2HR, a desktop 2x2 USB Type-C audio/MIDI interface designed to deliver comfortable, user-friendly operation, clean audio quality, and simultaneous input of two mics or instruments for home recordists and traveling content creators. The inclusion of MIDI ports gives producers an easy way to integrate MIDI gear into their music production setups.

With its two Ultra-HDDA mic/line/instrument preamps, the US-2x2HR 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. The stereo balanced 1/4" 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 adjustable direct monitoring, and an empowering software bundle.
