Tascam US-224 USB Audio

Designed by Tascam and Frontier Design Group, the US-224 is their newest innovation in interfacing and control for your computer audio and MIDI system. Portable and incredibly affordable, the US-224 connects your audio to your DAW software via a USB port that's compatible for both Mac and Windows computers. It's also the complete solution for your portable recording needs, at a price that won't slow you down. Since it's self-powered via USB, you can connect it to your laptop for a complete studio you can take anywhere.

The US-224's cool purple control surface gives you more than just mouse clicks for your DAW software. Like its big brother, the immensely popular US-428, the US-224 gives you real tactical controls like faders, transports, mutes and solos, panning and more. Plug in a guitar, mic, or keyboard and get 2 channels of audio I/O in 16 or 24 bit quality, as well as 16 channels of MIDI I/O. Best of all, it's USB...just plug in and go. No cards to install, no need to take your computer apart.

The US-224 comes with a custom version of Steinberg's Cubasis VST for Windows and Mac OS. With 8 channels of audio and 16 MIDI tracks, it's a perfect all-in-one setup for anyone getting into the world of computer audio recording.

Features
High-quality 24-bit audio with 2 inputs and 2 outputs

Self-powered USB interface compatible with Mac and PC

4 faders, transport/locate controls, data wheel, and more for control of DAW parameters

Customer Reviews
3.5 out of 5 (76 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Nice for the price"
Sound: I've been using this for three months to make useful demos. My limitations are more of an issue to me at this point than the unit's. Feature: This control interface and bundled Cubasis VST software has everything you need for recording quality demos. Good selection of echos, reverbs, and other effects. Quality: Not a heavily-built unit. You wouldn't want to schlep this around on your roadhouse tour of the US, but that's not really its intended purpose. Value: For its intended purpose--recording one-track-at-a-time demos for friends, family, and band members--this is just what the doctor ordered. I'm glad I took my buddy's advice and steered clear of the cassette portastudio. With a little coaching, this unit does just what I want it to do. Manufacturer Support: Not applicable, though Tascam's support is reputed to be quite awful. The Wow Factor: It's a tool. It's about as sexy as a toothbrush. Overall: I'm pretty happy with this unit. It was a good, low-risk introduction to digital recording. If you're looking for a unit for low-budget project and demo recording, this is a great choice. One reservation: You will want to have a pretty good computer setup before going with this or any other computer-based DAW. I'm getting by with my 1.6 gH PIII laptop with 512 megs of RAM, but I managed to crash the computer pretty spectacularly once while trying to do a mixdown with multiple reverb effects going at once. Having a soundcard that's optimized for digital recording (as opposed to GTA) is helpful, too.

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Great Little Unit!!"
Sound: I was a little disappointed in how harsh the sound was when recording direct, in particular vocals and acoustic guitar. You'll need some sort of pre- to warm it up. I'm using a 10 year old Digitech RP1 effects pedal, even on vocals, which makes a big difference. Quality: Made mostly of plastic so I'm really careful unplugging/plugging cables so as not to crack anything. Manufacturer Support: Never had to deal with support. Overall: Overall, a great buy! Currently using it on a P4 2.4Ghz PC with WinXp. Make sure you follow the WinXP tweaking guidelines in the PDF on the CD.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
