Tascam Unveils the Trackpack 2x2

Tascam Unveils the Trackpack 2x2

Included in the bundle is Tascam’s US-2x2 USB audio interface, TM-80 studio condenser microphone with shockmount, TH-02 headphones, and Cakewalk SONAR X3 LE and Ableton Live Lite 9 DAW software.

Montebello, CA (March 3, 2015) -- The new Tascam Trackpack 2x2 assembles everything you need to record music on your computer. Included in the complete recording bundle is Tascam’s US-2x2 USB audio interface, TM-80 studio condenser microphone with shockmount, and TH-02 headphones, plus Cakewalk SONAR X3 LE and Ableton Live Lite 9 DAW software.

The US-2x2 is a 2-in/2-out USB interface, bus powered from your Mac or Windows computer. A pair of Ultra-HDDA mic preamps provide up to 57dB of gain and the best noise and distortion specs in their class. The audio design features high-performance, musical components like NE5532 op amps for rich sound quality without coloring the source. Class-compliant drivers enable use with tablets like the iPad when using an optional power supply.

The US-2x2’s all-aluminum case features a pair of “bio-cell” side panels. In addition to their striking design, the side panels ergonomically angle the interface towards you to make the switches and knobs easier to read on a desktop. The US-2x2 includes MIDI in and out, balanced audio outputs, a headphone amp, and two DAW applications to choose from – both Cakewalk SONAR X3 LE and Abelton Live Lite 9. Included with the software are dozens of plug-in instruments, effects, and loops to get you started.

Also included is the TM-80, a condenser microphone ideal for vocals, drums, and acoustic instruments. The TM-80 includes a shockmount and desktop stand. The TH-02 closed-back headphones provide isolation while recording and a great reference during mixdown.

For a street price under $200, the Tascam Trackpack 2x2 is the perfect way to launch your computer-recording studio.

  • Two high-quality Ultra-HDDA mic/line preamps with up to 57dB of gain

PRS Guitars and Ted McCarty family drop “Theodore” trademark objection, and Gibson agrees to drop opposition to PRS’s “594” and “Silver Sky Nebula” trademarks and trademark applications.
