Tascam US20X20 Product Description

The US-20x20 (twenty-by-twenty) is the flagship of the Tascam line of interfaces. Designed for use in professional recording facilities or project studios, this audio interface supports 192 kHz and utilizes USB 3.0, a leading-edge transmission standard. With added features such as Mic Preamp Mode and Mixer Mode, it becomes a very versatile tool – along with being an interface for multi-channel recording.

Microphone preamplifiers are crucial for highest audio quality. The eight Tascam Ultra-HDDA mic preamps have an equivalent input noise (EIN) of –125 dBu. And 20 dB of headroom on the microphone and line inputs allow to easily handle high SPL transients from percussion and instruments.

Utilizing a high-performance Blackfin processor, the US-20x20 offers an advanced DSP mixer including EQ, compression and reverb effects on each channel. The processor not only excels on the dynamics and effects, but enables multi-channel transmission via USB 3.0 for the studio.

Additional significant features enable the seamless workflow of the professional engineer. Mode switching provides the options of using the US-20x20 as a standalone mic preamp, an audio interface, or as a mixer for sound reinforcement applications.

Complete connectivity to various types of audio equipment is achieved by utilizing the analogue inputs and outputs, digital input and output via coaxial and optical connectors, MIDI, and word clock BNC connectors.

The radical eye-catching style and angled industrial design of the US-20x20 make desktop recording a breeze. A rack-mount adapter is also included.

Highlights

  • Ultra-HDDA mic preamps provide pristine audio quality
  • 20 inputs and 20 outputs for versatility in many recording applications
  • Three switchable modes - Interface, Mic Preamp and Mixer
  • Advanced DSP mixer paired with a new USB driver
  • Support for iOS devices and compatibility with many DAW applications
  • Rackmount adapters and hex keys are included
