Tascam US-224
- interface / controller
for Mac and Windows

24-bit AD and DA conversion
44.1 or 48 kHz sampling rates

The US-224 is anaffordable PC / Macintosh DAW controller and USB audio interface. Like its upmarket US-428, the US-244 offers XLR balanced and unbalanced 24-bit audio I/Os, and stereo digital I/O. The US-244 does not require the use of a sound card or any hardware installation but simply connects to the host computer with a single USB cable, via which it transmits and receives digital audio and MIDI control data; it also draws its power from the USB connection and does no require an external power supply, making it idea for use with laptop audio systems.
The unit also run in US-428 emulation mode, providing support for existing US-428 users
wishing to transfer material across from a second workstation operating with aUS-244
Four hardware faders, a jog wheel and assignable buttons provide hardware control
over any number of software faders (in banks of four), transport controls, mutes and
solos, panning, etc.. The unit supports the simultaneous use of two inputs and two
outputs at 16 or 24 bit audio resolution and 44.1 or 48 kHz sampling rates.
