Tascam debuts trio of high-res USB audio interfaces

Tascam has revealed its new US-HR Series of high-resolution USB audio interfaces, comprised of three models – the US-1x2HR, US-2x2HR and US-4x4HR 

The new interfaces incorporate 24-bit audio resolution at sample rates up to 192 kHz, a ‘very high’ signal-to-noise ratio, ultra-low latency with buffer sizes starting from four samples, Ultra-HDDA mic preamplifiers and a suite of included software. 

The new range is suitable for live streaming of music sessions, games or similar broadcasts using a Windows, Mac, iOS or iPadOS device. All models have a mono/stereo switchable Loopback function and support OBS Studio and other streaming software. Each of the interfaces comes with Steinberg Cubase LE (including Cubasis LE3) for recording and production, IK Multimedia Sample Tank SE 4 offering a 30-Gigabyte sound library, and a free three-month subscription to Auto-Tune Unlimited from Antares.
