Tascam US122L USB 2.0 Audio Interface

It may be one of our most affordable USB audio interfaces, but don't let the low price fool you. The Tascam US122L is a serious digital recording interface. Packed with all the features you'll need to start recording into your computer, the US122L is also built to last, and with up to 24-bit 96 kHz conversion resolution, it sounds great, too.

Multitrack Recording From Any Source
With an array of input options, you'll be able to track just about any source you'd ever need. The two XLR inputs are optimal for connecting microphones, and because they supply a full 48 volts of phantom power, you can even hook professional studio condenser mics directly up to the US122L. because the unit is powered from your computer's USB port, that means you can even use phantom-powered mics as part of a portable setup with your laptop. In addition to the XLRs, you get a pair of 1/4" analog line inputs for connecting samplers, drum machines and keyboards, and those inputs can be switched to "Hi-Z" to accommodate direct electric guitar and bass input. If you like to use amp modeling plug-ins to keep the neighbors from complaining, the Tascam US122L is the answer! And if you're addicted to MIDI sequencers, drum machines, synth sound modules and other fun toys, you'll be able to easily integrate them into your computer setup, thanks to the US122L's MIDI input and output ports.

Direct Monitoring Makes For Perfect Overdubs
Because the US122L is designed with a direct monitoring option, you'll be able to record layered overdubs that are always in perfect sync. How does direct monitoring work? When listening to playback from your computer, the "armed" record tracks will always have a certain level of latency. That's because the input signal needs to travel to your computer, where it's processed by the CPU, and then back up to the Tascam's output section. The direct monitoring signal never travels to the computer, so you'll be listening to exactly what you're playing, in real time. Direct monitoring lets you truly play along with previously recorded tracks, making every multitrack project sound more professional.

A Complete Recording Package With The Tascam LaunchPad Starter Pack!
With the Tascam US122L as your computer recording hub, you're still going to need some additional equipment to start recording. That's where the Tascam LaunchPad Starter Pack comes in! An amazing value, the LaunchPad bundle includes a high quality Tascam Fox microphone for recording, and a pair of Tascam HPVT1 headphones for detailed monitoring and mixing. The Fox microphone was designed for Tascam by MXL, and it's great for recording vocals, electric guitars, and many other sources. . . and it's built to be abused, so it fits in nicely with your mobile Tascam-laptop recording rig.

The Tascam US1212L works on both Windows- and Mac OSX-based systems, so no matter what computer you have, you'll be able to turn it into a recording studio simply by adding the US122L! The interface even ships with a working copy of Cubase LE, so you'll be able to get to work on your recording masterpiece right away. What are you waiting for? Have zZounds send you a Tascam US122L today!

Customer Reviews
3.5 out of 5 (64 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Good value for your money, if you can get over the driver glitches."
Sound: This is simply a ADC/DAC -- it seems to render exactly what it gets, faithfully. It provides 46V of phantom power, at 2.6mA. I purchased the TNT bundle, with the LD-74 condenser microphone. I find it to be extremely responsive to my singing, much more than any dynamic microphone I've ever worked with. The rendition as it comes in to the software is very good. Feature: It does exactly what it claims to do. Two microphone ports, two line-in ports (one of which is switchable to guitar), one headphone port, one line-out port, two MIDI ports (one in, one out), and USB 2.0. There is no way to put phantom power on one microphone port but not the other, but I don't use ribbon microphones so this is not a problem for me. The MIDI in/out were the original reason I bought this, and it performs very well with minimal latency. Ease of Use: I'm using this product with a MacBook Pro and OS X Tiger 10.4.10 (initially 10.4.8). I had to update the firmware in the device to 1.02, and the driver as well. Finding the correct driver and correct firmware is more difficult than it should be. As well, the included version of Cubase LE is for PowerPC-based Macs only -- it will not work on Intel-based Macs, period. It is necessary to become familiar with Audio MIDI Setup in order to use this device. It acts as an "aggregate device", which means that its input and output are consolidated into a single device interface (unlike Apple's standard driver design). It /requires/ its own driver, and will not work with any standard USB audio interface drivers. It took a lot of trial and error to figure out how the controls worked. The manual didn't appear to have the information that I needed on how to set it up, though I will admit that I didn't look at it too thoroughly. The individual channel level knobs have LEDs next to them on the top, with standard green/yellow/red semantics -- though without a more analog level meter, it's difficult to get a sense of how well the levels are set. You MUST pay attention to clipping information in your application. Also, I have experienced (very sporadic) freezes on driver-load when plugging it in, both with and without a music application open. I wish the specs were available so that an external, more-maintained driver could be written. Quality: On the US-122L unit itself, there are no cosmetic issues. It appears to be well-finished. The LD-74 has a minor cosmetic blemish in the exterior shell over the transducer. I don't intend to use a condenser mic in public, so it's not too much hassle for me; as well, I cover it with a foam windscreen so it's not even visible to me in the studio. Value: I cannot speak to other items -- but I have not had any complaints about its value. Manufacturer Support: Finding the driver update was difficult, though I have not attempted to contact them outside of their website. I have had no issues to require warranty service. The Wow Factor: The color scheme matches my (burnished aluminum) MacBook Pro almost precisely. Technically, this does exactly what I want and need it to do. Overall: I expect that I will be satisfied with this for my (relatively modest) needs for quite some time. The features I'd want in an upgrade would be more simultaneous tracks recording at once, but that would also require a much more capable piece of software.

"If you dont own it get it!!"
Sound: The sound is good for what I payed for it. I run the cubase program. I got the upgrade on the cubase web site. and it was money well spent. great program for recording at home. I also enjoy how I can get real time monitering out of this thang with all the effect to. Feature: I have yet to try the midi on this interface. but I can say that the line in/instrument input are good quality. I suggest getting a good mic for the vocal/ instrument recording. I was using a mic i picked up for 65.00 dollars and the sound was muffled. but I went out and spent 130 on a better mic. and my bass comes through very well and it captures the classic clank from my ampeg stack very well. Ease of Use: Very strait forward. A retarded monkey could get this thang down. Quality: It is very good quality for the 140 i spent on it. way better then the M-audio that i was using. Value: very good for home recording use Manufacturer Support: havent used it but I heard it can be alittle on the poor side at times. The Wow Factor: I love it! I do alot of home recording on my bass. and I havent found better within its price range. And the Cubase is a god sent. if you dont have this program get it!! Overall: Over all it is very nice. And I fill it will give me many good recordings till Tascam comes out with a better version it its price range. but it will have to be very good because I am happy with the one I have.
