Tascam has delivered the newest product from the US series: the US-1×2. It is a 2-in/2-out USB 2 audio interface, suitable for musicians, producers, DJs, songwriters and podcasters. It is a great choice for small home studios, as well as mobile studios. The main idea is to bring a high-quality product at a very competitive price.
The front panel has inputs 1 and 2, with dedicated gain knobs. Input 1 allows the user to connect dynamic or condenser mics, and has a built-in +48V phantom power. Input 2 is designed to plug either line or hi-Z instruments (no direct box required), through a TRS jack and a Line/Inst switch. The front panel also has a Line Out volume knob, a TRS headphones output, with an independent volume control.
The rear panel has an external power jack, USB 2.0 port, Direct Monitor switch, +48V phantom power switch, and two RCA audio outputs. There are also two RCA inputs for connecting the unit to stereo audio sources, such as media players. In this case, the front line input 2 will be inactive.
The US-1×2 is macOS class-compliant, and it requires an Asio driver to run on Windows machines. It’s possible to connect the product to an iOS device using the Apple Camera Connection Kit. The unit is compatible with mostly all leading DAW software, such as Pro Tools, Cubase, Live, Studio One, Garage Band and Sonar.
