TASCAM Shipping US-1641 USB 2.0 Audio / MIDI Interface
TASCAM is now shipping their single-rackspace US-1641, a USB 2.0 Audio/MIDI interface with 16 simultaneous inputs (14 analog inputs plus S/PDIF digital inputs) and four simultaneous outputs, eight studio-quality microphone inputs with phantom power, digital I/O, independent monitor and headphone outputs and 16 channels of MIDI I/O.
TASCAM claims the US-1641 offers zero-latency hardware monitoring and up to 96kHz sampling rates at 24-bit resolution. The eight mic inputs employ TASCAM Pro mic PREs for 60 dB of gain and phantom power for studio-quality recordings. Two balanced TRS line inputs on the front panel are switchable to guitar level for direct-in recording of bass or guitar tracks. Four more balanced line inputs and outputs fill out the rear panel, along with MIDI and S/PDIF digital inputs and outputs for a total of 16 ins. A built-in power supply means there’s no special wall-wart to lose, and connection to the computer is handled by USB 2.0 technology – 40 times faster than USB 1.1 and 20% more bandwidth than FireWire 400. It comes bundled with Cubase LE4 and TASCAM’s own Continuous Velocity Piano.
