Tascam US-1x2The 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.


Vocal/Instrument Recording With Outstanding Performance

Tascam US-1x2

A recording environment with low noise and great audio performance is a relevant factor for vocal and, in particular, wind instruments. The US-1x2 features an Ultra-HDDA microphone preamplifier with an EIN figure of –127 dBu. This very low noise level makes this interface the ideal tool for recording with condenser microphones. You can also plug in your electric guitar or bass directly using the line/instrument input and use plug-in effects on your computer recording (DAW) software. Or connect any instrument amplifier’s line output to the line input of the US-1x2.

The US-1x2 is also a great tool for composing on the road. Combine it with an iPad and you can record your ideas with high quality wherever you go.

Even if you’re not so familiar with recording equipment, the US-1x2’s user-friendly design enables you to use it right away.


  • Ultra-HDDA mic preamp
  • Equivalent input noise: –127 dBu
  • Overall S/N ratio: 100 dB
  • Separate inputs for mics and instruments / line level sources
  • Separate controls for line and headphones outputs
  • Zero-latency monitoring

Perfect For Music Playback From Your Computer

Tascam US-1x2

The US-1x2 can improve your sound when playing music from your computer. No matter if you create your own dance music using software synths and other plug-ins or if you play back commercial music on a birthday party – with its high audio quality and separate controls for headphones and line outputs (loudspeakers) the US-1x2 easily turns your computer into a good-sounding playback device.

You may have noticed that your sound system is not very loud when powered directly from a computer. When using the US-1x2 to feed your power amplifiers, its high line output level ensures you get the maximum power out of your sound system.


  • Maximum line output level: +6 dBV
  • Separate controls for line and headphones outputs
  • Standard 6.3-mm headphones output
  • Zero-latency monitoring

Easy Configuration For Different Applications (Windows only)

Tascam US-1x2

The Windows Settings Panel, which is installed on your computer, comes with a variety of functions. You can use them not only for recording but also for online broadcasting and Internet voice calls. You can select from three presets (DAW, Broadcast/Karaoke, Talking) or even use a custom mode to create and save your own setting.

By using the custom mode, you are able to configure the US-1x2 for virtually any application.

Hardware Details

Ultra-HDDA Mic Preamps Provide Pristine Audio Quality

Tascam Ultra-HDDA Mic PreampThe Ultra-HDDA (High Definition Discrete Architecture) mic preamps used on the US-1x2 feature a discrete construction. They have a higher number of components and are far away from mass-produced preamps. Their EIN (equivalent input noise) rating, which measures the absence of noise, is as low as –127 dBu. Including other specifications, the US-1x2 achieves a very high level of audio performance overall and a signal-to-noise ratio of 100 dB. Parts have been selected through listening tests for balanced audio performance and audio quality at a high level.

Tascam Ultra-HDDA Mic PreampHigh-Performance XLR Balanced Microphone Input

The US-1x2 adds a balanced microphone input to your computer. Computers usually don't have such professional connectors but if you want to achieve studio sound there’s no way without it. Balanced connections are less sensitive to interference caused by other electrical signals (from mains power cables, for instance). Also, balanced connections are required to provide phantom power to high-quality condenser microphones.

The XLR mic input on the US-1x2 can provide 48-volts phantom power to condenser mics and it offers enough gain (up to 57 dB) to cope even with less expensive dynamic mics.

Tascam Ultra-HDDA Mic PreampSecond Input For Instruments

Unlike your computer, the US-1x2 offers an instrument input for direct connection of an electrical guitar or bass. This means you can record or stream your instrument without the need for an instrument amplifier. Use plug-in effects (available as an option) on your DAW software to create truly professional sounds.

Tascam Ultra-HDDA Mic PreampRCA Stereo Input For External Audio Devices

You can also connect external equipment to the US-1x2 like a cassette deck, CD player or even your smartphone using a conversion cable. Why not archive your cassette tape collection to your computer? It’s really simple. Or record or stream your keyboard performance in stereo.

NOTE: You can only use one set of inputs (front or rear) at a time.

Power Supply

When used with a computer, the US-1x2 is powered by USB so a sparate power supply is not required. If you operate the unit together with an iOS device, however, you need a 5-volts power supply like Tascam PS-P520E (available as an option) or your original Apple AC adapter (the US-1x2 will not supply power to the iOS device in this case). A genuine Apple Lightning-USB adapter is also required for operation with an iPad.

What is Direct Monitoring?

Direct Monitoring explained – Tascam

When recording audio with a computer, input signals are usually routed through the interface, the computer, and then back to the interface’s outputs. While signals pass the A/D and D/A converters in your interface without any noticeable delay, audio processing by the computer can lead to a clearly audible, disturbing time lag. As a result, you hear your voice or instrument later than the backing tracks played back on the computer and you are hardly able to perform in sync with the playback signal.

By using direct monitoring, input signals are not only sent to the computer but also directly to the outputs of your interface. This allows you to hear your input signal with virtually no delay (or latency) and always in sync with the playback material when recording or performing.

Tip: When recording the signal, mute the track you are recording to. Otherwise you would also hear your performance delayed from the recording track.
