Tascam iUR2

After the launch of Apple’s iPhone 5s, iPhone5c and iOS7, Tascam would like to inform that iOS7 compatibility has not yet been confirmed for this product. Further information will follow. Please check this website regularly to find out whether this product is compatible with iOS7 or whether an update is available.

The iUR2 is a premium sound-quality audio interface for Windows and Mac Computers that can also be used with Apple iPad/iPad 2, iPhone 4/4S or iPod Touch 4G. It includes all of the features of Tascam’s best-selling USB audio interfaces, including a pair of high-quality microphone inputs. The XLR inputs have phantom power for use with studio condenser microphones. These feed an onboard microphone preamp and A/D converter for better sound performance than those built into the iOS device – true stereo recording with low noise and less tendency to distort. The inputs also accept line-level signals or you can plug a guitar or bass directly into your device.

A zero-latency monitoring path allows musicians to hear themselves directly through the unit, without any distracting delay. MIDI in and out are provided to interface with synths and drum machines, and a digital output connects to digital mixers or recorders.

An appropriate 2-track recording application (Tascam PCM Recorder) can be downloaded from AppStore at no charge.
