Designed as an affordable solution for musicians and recordists who need to send audio and MIDI to and from computers, the US-122 continues TASCAM’s successful legacy of creating innovative computer recording hardware with their development partners Frontier Design Group.

"The US-122 is an excellent solution for several levels of computer recordists," states Jim Bailey, TASCAM product development manager. "Since it’s self-powered via USB and features phantom-powered preamps, a person with a laptop and a couple of condenser mics has a great portable recording rig. A desktop recordist with limited space will really appreciate the US-122’s sleek, ergonomic design and features like analog inserts for working with outboard gear. Beginning musicians can get into the US-122 with its affordable price point and easy-to-use design."

MPN: US122

The US-122 is a Mac and Windows compatible USB audio and MIDI interface. It features two XLR-based, phantom-powered mic inputs with analog inserts that allow hardware devices (compressors, etc.) to be placed into the recording signal chain. Two line-level inputs on balanced 1/4" TRS jacks are included, and are switchable to guitar-level for direct instrument recording. Its two line-level outputs provide control for levels, and a dedicated headphone output is also included. The US-122 also offers 16 channels of MIDI I/O for use with synthesizers and other MIDI equipment.

The US-122 also provides a dedicated control for adjustable zero-latency direct monitoring, providing a sonically pure reference point before entering DAW processing. Since the US-122 is self-powered via USB, no separate power supply is required for operation, making it perfect for mobile recording systems based around laptop computers. Drivers for the US-122 are provided for compatibility with ASIO, WDM, GSIF and Apple Core Audio (OS X) software systems.

The US-122 is packaged with two valuable music production software tools at no added cost: TASCAM’s GigaStudio 24 sampling workstation software and a special version of Steinberg’s Cubasis recording/sequencing software. With its compact design and rugged steel chassis, the US-122 meets the needs of everyone from hobbyist musicians through advanced professional recording engineers and producers.

Cubase LE 96kHz/48-track recording software, the new GigaStudio 3 LE streaming sampled instrument and Nomad Factory plug-in demos for a complete professional recording package.
Cubase LE for Mac OS X and Windows XP computers can play back up to 48 audio tracks and 64 MIDI tracks. It records at 96kHz/24-bit resolution for extended range recording of acoustic instruments. It supports VST plug-in effects and instruments. Sophisticated MIDI track editing is included, and loop slice, stretch, groove and tempo analysis assist in rock and dance music production.

GigaStudio 3 LE is based on the latest version of world’s best streaming sampler. GigaStudio 3 LE has all of the features of its bigger brothers like ReWire capability, VST plug-in hosting, 96kHz/24-bit sample playback, GigaPulse SP convolution effects and compatibility with all GigaStudio sample libraries. It includes the "MegaPiano" piano library, based on TASCAM’s acclaimed GigaPiano 2 sample.

Nomad Factory demos of Blue Tubes Bundle 2.0, Rock Amp Legends and Liquid bundle plug-ins are included in VST, HTDM, RTAS and AU formats for Mac and PC computers. A free Nomad Factory delay plug-in does not expire with the other demos.
