USB Audio Interface For Under 100 Dollars


TASCAM has announced the US-100, a new USB 2.0 Audio Interface positioned at a breakthrough price. They tell us that the high-quality interface features a microphone input as well as instrument level input for direct recording guitar or bass. Stereo line inputs are provided, and can be switched to phono-level to connect a favorite turntable to digitize a vinyl collection. All of this is housed in a solid aluminum chassis that TASCAM say will withstand any abuse from the road to the dorm room.
The US-100 is a 48k/16-bit stereo audio interface that connects to a Mac or Windows computer using USB 2.0. A free copy of Audacity software is included to start recording right away. TASCAM believe that additional features like a 1/8" stereo headphone output and zero-latency monitoring make the US-100 perfect for songwriters and musicians getting started with recording.
Features:
  • Bus-powered USB 2.0 audio interface
  • XLR or 1/4" microphone input
  • 1/4" guitar-level direct input
  • RCA line inputs, switchable to RIAA photo inputs with ground lug
  • 1/8" stereo headphone output
  • 48kHz/16-bit audio resolution
  • Zero-latency hardware monitoring
  • Mac and Windows compatible
  • Audacity recording software included
  • Solid aluminum case construction
