ASCAM’s US-1x2 brings great quality desktop recording to a price never before possible. It features a high-quality Ultra-HDDA microphone preamp as well as a 1/4” line input - switchable to instrument level for guitar or bass.
In addition, both stereo line inputs and outputs are found on the rear panel for fast an easy connection of all of your existing audio gear. The unique design of the bio-cell side panels angles the US-1x2 up from the desktop for easier usability and - to make sure that you are up and running in minutes - both Steinberg Cubase LE and Cubasis LE are also included.
