Tascam just introduced the US-HR Series High Resolution USB Audio Interfaces; including three models — the US-1x2HR, the US-2x2HR and the US-4x4HR, all including 24-bit/192-kilohertz audio performance, ultra-low latency (four-sample driver buffer), Ultra-HDDA mic preamplifiers with +48V phantom power and a software control suite.
In addition, all the US-HR Series interfaces have a loopback function with stereo/mono switch support (Windows, Mac, iOS, iPad OS), support for OBS streaming software, a USB Type-C connection with an included USB C-A cable and are USB bus power capable. And, all are housed in a dye-cast aluminum honeycomb structure on the side panels with a slight upward tilt. This design provides just the right amount of weight so the interface won’t move when cables are connected or disconnected. The upward tilt provides the benefit of being angled in such a way as to make these interfaces easy to work with.
The included software bundle that ships with the US-HR Series interfaces offers a comprehensive set of solutions for a various tasks. The software bundle includes Steinberg’s Cubase LE / Cubasis LE 3, IK Multimedia’s SampleTank 4 SE and a free three-month subscription to Auto-Tune Unlimited.
