OVERVIEW

Premium-quality audio interface for your iOS device, that' ready for any studio.

TASCAMs iU2 is a premium sound quality audio interface for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. It includes all of the features of TASCAMs best-selling USB audio interfaces, including a pair of precision audio microphone inputs. The XLR inputs have phantom power for use with high-quality condenser microphones. These feed an onboard microphone preamp and A/D converter for better sound performance than those built into iPhone and iPad “ true stereo recording with low noise and less tendency to distort. The inputs also accept line-level signals or you can plug a guitar or bass directly into your device.

In addition to compatibility with iOS devices, the iU2 also works with Mac and Windows computers. A zero-latency monitoring path allows musicians to hear themselves directly through the unit, without any distracting delay. Both MIDI in and out are provided to easily interface with synths and drum machines, and a digital output connects to digital mixers or recorders.
