As a 2-input/2-output USB audio/MIDI interface, the US-2x2 is perfect for music creation – and novice users in particular. It offers serious recording capabilities with 96 kHz/24-bit quality with easy-to-understand operation so users can make high-quality recordings as soon as the interface is connected. 

Mic preamps are the key to audio quality, and the Ultra-HDDA mic preamps in the US-2x2 boasts –125 dBu EIN rating which means a very, very low noise floor. Because of the wide dynamic range, this interface can also be used with dynamic microphones in addition to condenser mics. This makes it ideal for a variety of applications from recording vocals, pianos and acoustic guitars. 

The radical eye-catching angled design was crafted by a German designer, who has worked on numerous well-known devices used for music creation, and is optimized for ease of use on the desktop. 

The newly designed driver software is easy to install, and easy to master by anyone. Operation has been tested with major DAW applications, so the user can choose their favourite DAW without concern. The US-2x2 can also be used as audio interface with iPads and other popular iOS devices by simply utilizing a genuine Apple Lightning-to-USB camera adapter (an optional AC adapter is necessary to use the US-2x2 with iOS devices). 

With the potential for future use with other DAWs and iOS devices, the US-2x2 is an ideal ‘first’ audio interface.
