Eight studio-grade microphone preamps welcome condenser microphones, and two of the mic inputs are on the front panel for easy access. An additional six balanced 1/4" line inputs are provided, as well as four balanced line outs and stereo digital I/O. The front panel features a 100-LED meter bridge for setting input and output levels. The US-2000 connects to a computer through high-speed USB 2.0, and is priced about the same as less-capable 8-channel FireWire interfaces.
Included with the TASCAM US-2000 is Cubase LE4, a 48-track workstation for Mac or Windows computers. It includes flexible hardware controls for zero-latency monitoring during recording.
Pricing and Availability:
The US-2000 will be available from TASCAM retailers in October at a projected street price under $500
nice interface considering the inputs and price, preamps and 480mbps transfer rate...but what about the A/D D/A conversion rate (db) and why only 96 khz? 192khz would have been good for blue-ray sound creation.
