Tascam’s new Series 102i and Series 208i USB 2.0 audio-Midi interfaces deliver 192kHz, 24-bit recording and playback using a Mac, Windows PC or iPad for guitarists, songwriters and small studio owners,

Tascam Series 102i and Series 208i USB 2.0 audio-Midi interfacesControllable with included custom software, the interfaces feature DSP input and output mixers with built-in digital reverb, compressor, phase invert and four-band EQ for each channel. Having these processors included internally eliminates all latency issues and takes the load off the computer, allowing the PC/Mac to process the audio more efficiently.

The 10-input/2-output Series 102i audio/Midi interface provides two analogue mic/line/instrument combo inputs with Tascam’s low-noise Ultra-HDDA mic preamps and individually switched +48V phantom power. The interface can be expanded up to ten inputs using its optical S/MUX port, which can accept up to eight channels of audio input from an Adat- or S/MUX-compatible device. The Series 102i also provides dual headphone outputs with dedicated level control and two balanced, quarter-inch line outputs for versatile monitoring.

The 20-input/8-output Series 208i features four analogue mic/line/instrument combo inputs with Ultra-HDDA mic preamps and individually switched phantom power. It can be expanded up to 20 inputs using a pair of optical S/MUX ports, each of which can accept up to eight channels of audio input from an Adat- or S/MUX-compatible device. Eight balanced, quarter-inch line outputs enable multiple monitor mixes or up to 7.1 surround monitoring. You also get dual headphone outputs with dedicated level control. Word clock in and out ensures correct synchronization with other digital audio devices.

Both interfaces come with Steinberg’s Cubase LE DAW software for Windows and macOS, and Cubasis LE app for iPad. The included IK Multimedia AmpliTube guitar effects/modelling software and T-RackS mastering software provide the tools you need to deliver high-quality, polished recording projects. The IK Multimedia software is provided in both free standing and plug-in versions for complete, versatile recording, mixing, and mastering.

Free, easy-to-use Tascam Control software manages faders, processing, and the ability to route any audio input (analogue, optical and USB) to any audio output. A new USB driver offers very high stability, ensuring reliable performance every time.

The Series 102i and 208i interfaces’ angled tabletop design offers easy access to all front-panel controls. A large front-panel Monitor knob provides quick adjustment of the monitor output level, and a handy Monitor Balance control enables mixing live input with computer playback for zero-latency overdubs. Rear-panel 5-pin DIN Midi In and Out jacks allows connection of Midi devices. A Kensington key lock helps keep gear safe.

Tascam Series 102i and 208i interfaces are shipping now at estimated street pricing of US$399.99 and US$499.99.
