Portable 2-in/4-out Audio/MIDI Interface
TASCAM's US-200 features the same great sound quality as our other best-selling interfaces. The lightweight, desktop design is perfect for studio use or for bringing along for recording with a laptop. The US-200 has two combo jack inputs and four RCA outputs, totaling 2-in and 4-out. It's powered through the USB jack so you don't need to carry along a wall wart.
A pair of full-featured inputs
The US-200 has a pair of combination jacks on the front panel that accept 1/4" or XLR jacks. This gives you the flexibility to attach microphones, line level sources, even plug a guitar or bass directly in. The microphone inputs provide phantom power for condenser microphones and plenty of gain for recording any source.
A direct monitor path is available during recording to prevent the delays that can occur when recording to computer. This allows the musician to hear the input directly to the output without any delay so that timing isn't distracted by echos.
Two pairs of RCA line outputs are provided, and each can have its own mix from your software. A stereo 1/4" headphone jack is also provided on the front panel, as well as MIDI in and out for keyboard controllers and other devices.
Cubase LE5 Included
Included with the US-200 is a copy of Cubase LE5, a 48-track workstation application with the features to create polished productions. VST plug-in support, automated mixing and MIDI tracks allow you to craft large productions without adding any other software.
If you want to use your own software, the US-200 supports most Mac and Windows software such as Logic Pro, Live, Nuendo, Digital Performer, Fruity Loops, and Pro Tools 9.
