Santa Fe Springs, CA (December 2, 2020)—Tascam has announced its new US-HR Series of USB audio interfaces, intended for use in project studios, content creation situations, podcasting, streaming and so on.
The three models – US-1x2HR, US-2x2HR and US-4x4HR – incorporate 24-bit audio resolution at sample rates up to 192 kHz; low latency with buffer sizes starting from four samples; Ultra-HDDA mic preamplifiers; and a suite of included software. According to Tascam, these interfaces, designed for ease of use and flexibility, are a good choice for any demanding sound creator, from beginners in recording technology to project studio operators to podcast and webcast producers.
All models have a mono/stereo switchable Loopback function and support OBS Studio and other streaming software. Each of the interfaces comes with Steinberg Cubase LE (including Cubasis LE3) for recording and production; IK Multimedia Sample Tank SE 4 offering a 30-Gigabyte sound library; and a 3-month subscription to Auto-Tune Unlimited from Antares.
The US-1x2HR sports one XLR microphone input, one TRS instrument/line input (both switchable to line inputs on RCA connectors) and two RCA outputs. Stepping up, the US-2x2HR provides two mic/line/instrument inputs and two balanced line outputs as well as MIDI I/O to add keyboards, drum machines and other MIDI equipment to the production environment.
Topping the line, the US-4x4HR provides four XLR mic inputs, four TRS balanced line inputs (two of which can also be used for instruments), four balanced line outputs, MIDI I/O and two headphones connectors.
The series will ship in early December and is priced with the US-1x2HR (2 in / 1 mic, 2 out) at $99; US-2x2HR (2 in / 2 out) at $149; and US-4x4HR (4 in / 4 out) at $199.
