Ultra-HDDA Mic Preamps
Tascam's Ultra-HDDA mic preamps are the clean, quiet, and sound great, with a gain range of 56dB to make them ideal for any type of mic – dynamic, condenser, or ribbon. With preamp performance well beyond any interfaces in their price range, the Ultra-HDDA preamps on the US-16x08 make your tracks sound like a record.
Ergonomic as they are stylish
The angled design makes desktop viewing and operation much more comfortable than interfaces with controls on the front or the top of the device. The US-16x08 controls are at a natural angle, making operation easier.
Redesigned driver with enhanced stability
The US-16x08 includes an all-new driver architecture written in-house by Tascam engineers. The Windows driver software can be installed without connecting the interface, with simple on-screen instructions. Mac users can use the interface without installing a driver at all. Simply install the control panel software in order to change device settings.
Recording enabled with both iOS devices and multi-channel
Powered by an Analog Devices BlackFin DSP processor, the US-16x08 includes an advanced digital mixer for monitor mixing. Each input includes 4-band EQ, a low-cut filer, and compressor. The DSP mixer can store up to 10 snapshots as scenes - making it easy to recall mixer settings. An additional tab opens a digital patchbay to route signals to any output. The class-compliant driver allows it to be used with tablets like Apple's iPad. (Requires Apple's Camera Connection Kit for USB connection)
