This new US-2x2HR USB Audio Interface offers simple and intuitive operation also offers sophisticated looks, a rich assortment of software app bundles.
This TASCAM US-2x2HR High Resolution Versatile USB Audio Interface evem offers improved audio performance with updated 192 kHz support, thanks to a new audio circuit design.
The Optimal Interface For Music / Multimedia Creators, Podcasters & Live Streamers
The US-2x2HR is equipped with 2 mic / line inputs with guitar input support that can be used in various music / multi-media production environments such as vocal / uitar simultaneous recordings, as wells as high-quality sound recordings for video production. The unit is also equipped with a USB-C port easily powered by USB bus power.
Natural, Crisp, Clear Sound Quality Thanks To The Ultra HDDA Mic Preamp w/ 192kHz Sampling Rate
High resolution reproduction in the US-HR series has been pursued based on TASCAM's policy to recreate sound as close to the original as possible. Therefore, the in-house developed Ultra HDDA mic preamp combined with a newly improved audio circuit delivers enhanced audio performance with the most transparent and low-noise sound.
Zero-Latency Direct Monitoring Function
Direct monitoring will diverge signals before sending them to the computer, resulting in smooth, in-time monitoring without any sound delay during both recording and performance.
Create quality content with bundled software
The US-HR models come bundled with world-renowned software that will enhance the user's production workflow. At the core of music production, Steinberg's Cubase LE/Cubasis LE 3 DAW is included, along IK Multimedia's Sample Tank SE, which comes free of charge with a massive 30 GB sound library encompassing more than 2,000 different musical instruments.
I/O Interface Designed for Podcasters and Live Streamers
The US-2x2HR can be used with computers or smartphones to easily create podcasts or live streams. The audio can be switched between stereo/mono, and the loopback function allows the audio from the computer to be returned to the streaming software for playback during live streams. US-2x2HR also supports OBS, which is popular and used worldwide.
Equipped with MIDI IN / OUT Ports
The MIDI IN/OUT terminals enable other MIDI external devices such as keyboards, drum machines, controllers, etc. to be synchronized and controlled.
Compatible with iPad and other iOS Devices
The US-2x2HR can be used as an interface for iPad and other iOS devices.
New Audio Interface Engine
Capitalizing on our experience being one of the pioneers in manufacturing USB audio interfaces, we achieved further stability in our native driver. The audio buffer size can be set starting from 4 samples (Windows only) to give the best performance to every different environment; maximizing the capability of the computer in use while creating a low-latency environment.
Robust metal casing
The US-HR models share a solid and practical design intended to withstand long hours of hard use. Its robust metal jacket not only improves its durability but, combined with dye-cast aluminum side panels, provides a sleek and eye-catching design. In addition, all models have just the right weight, so they won't move when cables are connected or disconnected.
- 1) SIG Indicators:
These light green when signals (of at least −32 dBFS) are input
- 2) GAIN Knobs:
Use to adjust the input levels of the input jacks Adjust these so that the PEAK indicators do not light red
- 3) PEAK Indicators
These light red when signals are about to distort (−1 dBFS or higher)
- 4) USB Indicator
This lights up when the USB connection is working
- 5) LINE OUT Knob
Use to adjust the output level of the LINE OUT (BALANCED) 1-2 (t) jacks on the back of the unit
- 6) PHONES Knob
Use to adjust the output level of the PHONES jack
CAUTION: Before connecting headphones, minimize the volume with the PHONES knob (Failure to do so could result in a sudden loud noise that could harm hearing, for example.)
- 7) Phantom Power Indicator
The indicator lights when the phantom power switch is set to +48V
(ATTENTION: When operating the US-4x4HR with USB bus power, use a commercially-available Type-C–Type-C cable to connect it to a USB Type-C port on the computer. If there is a problem with the power supply, the phantom power indicator will blink. In this case, use the included AC adapter (PS-P1220E, DC12V).
- 8) Phantom Power Switch
Use this switch to provide +48 V phantom power to the IN1 and IN2 XLR jacks (and IN3/IN4 on the US-4x4HR)
(CAUTION: Set the LINE OUT and PHONES knobs to their minimum values before changing the phantom power setting. Depending on the connected mics, sudden loud noises from monitoring equipment could occur, and this could damage the equipment or harm hearing.)
- 9) IN1 / IN2 Jacks
On the US-2x2HR, these are XLR/TRS Combo Jacks for analog input. These Combo Jacks support high impedance input, including direct guitar input. Use the MIC/LINE INST switches (q) to select balanced line (MIC/LINE) or unbalanced (INST) input for the TRS jacks. When directly connecting a guitar, bass or other instrument, set the MIC/LINE INST switch (q) to INST
- 10) (Feature Not Used On This Model)
- 11) MIC/LINE INST Switches
Set according to the IN1/IN2 jack input sources. Set to “MIC/LINE” when connecting electronic instruments, audio devices, mics and similar equipment. Set to INST when connecting a guitar, bass or other equipment with high output impedance
- 12) MONITOR BALANCE Knob
Use this to adjust the monitoring balance between the signals from this unit’s input jacks and the output signals from the computer
- 13) PHONES Jack
Use this standard stereo jack to connect stereo headphones. This outputs the same signals as the LINE OUT (BALANCED) 1-2 jacks. Use an adapter to connect headphones with a 3.5mm mini plug
- 14) (Feature Not Used On This Model)
- 15) LINE OUT (BALANCED) 1-2 Jacks
These standard TRS jacks are analog line outputs. The signals output from the LINE OUT (BALANCED) 1-2 jacks (1-4 jacks on US4x4HR) can be set in the Settings Panel. For details about other settings, see Settings Panel screen in section 5 – Using the Settings Panel in the Reference Manual.
- 16) MIDI OUT Connector
This 5-pin DIN is a standard MIDI output connector that outputs MIDI signals
- 17) MIDI IN Connector
This 5-pin DIN is a standard MIDI input connector used to input MIDI signals
- 18) USB Port
This is a USB Type-C port used to connect the unit to a Windows® Computer or an iOS Smart Device
- 19) DC IN 5V Connector
When connected to an iOS device or other equipment that cannot power this unit, a dedicated AC adapter (PS-P520E, DC5V, sold separately) with power supply must be connected to the DC IN 5V connector. (see When using an iOS device on page 17 in the Reference Manual)
