Ultra-HDDA Mic Preamps for Clear Audio Quality from All of Your Mics
TASCAM’s own Ultra-HDDA mic preamps are the cleanest, quietest, and best-sounding from any interface in their range. A gain range of 56dB makes them ideal for any type of mic – dynamic, condenser, or ribbon. With preamp performance well beyond any interfaces in their price range, the Ultra-HDDA preamps on the US-16×08 makes your tracks sound like a record.
The distinct side panel creates a unique look
These powerful new interfaces are housed in modern industrial designs that are as ergonomic as they are stylish. TASCAM was the first company to offer a USB audio interface, and we have fused our years of experience with acclaimed German from designbox. The angled design makes desktop viewing and operation much more comfortable for tabletop use. All other interfaces have their controls on the front or the top of the device, causing you to crane your neck to read the knobs and switches. The US-16×08 are at a natural angle, making operation easier to keep you creative.
Newly-designed driver with enhanced stability
The US-16×08 includes an all-new driver architecture, written in-house by TASCAM engineers. The Windows driver software can be installed without connecting the interface, with simple on-screen instructions. Mac users can use the interface without installing a driver at all. Simply install the control panel software in order to change device settings.
Recording enabled with both iOS devices and multi-channel
Powered by an Analog Devices BlackFin DSP processor, the US-16×08 includes an advanced digital mixer for monitor mixing. Each input includes 4-band EQ, a low-cut filer, and compressor. The DSP mixer can store up to 10 snapshots as scenes – making it easy to recall mixer settings. An additional tab opens a digital patchbay to route signals to any output. The class-compliant driver allows it to be used with tablets like Apple’s iPad. (Requires Apple’s Camera Connection Kit for USB connection)
