Montebello, CA (September 9, 2015)—TASCAM has introduced its new Celesonic US-20x20 interface/mic pre/mixer. The unit offers 20 channels of analog and digital I/O into a single rackspace and provides USB 3.0/2.0 connectivity, along with eight Ultra-HDDA microphone preamps.
Up to 10 channels of digital I/O are included on ADAT and S/PDIF connectors, with word clock also provided for use with external clocks. MIDI I/O allows use with controllers and synthesizers, and sample rates up to 192kHz/24-bit are supported.
A built-in DSP mixer includes parametric EQ and compression on every channel and a stereo reverb send for monitor mixes; the DSP mixer can also be used as a live mixer or submixer with computer control. The US-20x20 has three modes: audio interface, digital mixer, and 8-channel digital mic preamp. Like the US-16x08, the US-20x20 includes a pair rack ears as well as bio-cell side panels to angle the interface off a desktop.
