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.
