Tascam US-1x2 USB Audio Recording Interface with Steinberg Cubase LE Software

The US-1x2 is the ideal USB audio interface for entry-level users. It is small, lightweight and economically priced, but nevertheless of high quality. The model features one microphone and one line/instrument input and an RCA unbalanced stereo analogue input as well as an RCA unbalanced analogue output. It enables you to record or stream to the Internet vocals and a single instrument or a stereo source, or archive your 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 US-1x2 features a Tascam original ultra-HDDA mic preamp with very low input noise and a high gain range of 57 dB 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. A license for Cubase LE including Cubasis LE is also included. And, last but not least, the interface can be operated in standalone mode for practice sessions when used with an external power supply.

A recording environment with low noise and great audio performance is a relevant factor for vocal and, in particular, wind instruments. The US-1x2 features an Ultra-HDDA microphone preamplifier with an EIN figure of –127 dBu. This very low noise level makes this interface the ideal tool for recording with condenser microphones. You can also plug in your electric guitar or bass directly using the line/instrument input and use plug-in effects on your computer recording (DAW) software. Or connect any instrument amplifier’s line output to the line input of the US-1x2.

The US-1x2 is also a great tool for composing on the road. Combine it with an iPad and you can record your ideas with high quality wherever you go.

Even if you’re not so familiar with recording equipment, the US-1x2’s user-friendly design enables you to use it right away.
