Tascam IXR Product Description

Take your iXR and iPad out for recording When you cannot make sound at home, head to a friend, for example. You can leave as soon as you put your iPad, iXR, mic and headphones in your bag. With its slim but tough body, carrying the iXR is no hassle. When you’re there, connect the iPad AC adapter to the iXR, and use the Lightning cable to connect it to the iPad. Connect your microphone, turn a few knobs and you are ready. Then, all you need to do is play or sing your heart out and record great performances.

Arrange music on the iPad and create music without needing a computer An iPad can be used as a tool to view musical scores. By installing a DAW app, it can also be used for creating music and practicing. You can easily add a DAW app by downloading a demo version of Steinberg Cubasis LE for free from the App Store. When you connect the iXR, the function restrictions for this app will be unlocked. You can work in bed, in your living room or anywhere you like and how you like. You can realize your own music creation style without being restricted to “where the computer is”.

Start using your iPhone as a high-quality synthesizer Numerous software synthesizers are distributed through the App Store. Using the iXR, you can turn these apps into stage-ready synths. The sound quality of audio sources depends greatly on the digital-to-analogue conversion quality and the post-conversion audio circuit quality. The iXR has a high-quality output circuit, so sound from apps is also output as high-quality audio. The audience will not believe that the sound enveloping them is from an iPhone synthesizer app.

Edit every detail using the large display of a desktop computer One of the advantages of a desktop computer is its large display. If you have a Windows or Mac computer with a large screen, you can connect the iXR to it to enable smooth editing. This way you can record ideas with your iPad and make final adjustments comfortably on a desktop computer display.
