MONTEBELLO, CALIF.� Tascam says the US-16x08 audio interface, with 16 mic and line inputs and features to manage big sessions will be available in November
Eight Ultra-HDDA microphone preamps deliver up to 56dB of gain, and an additional eight line inputs are provided, two of them switchable to instrument level for direct guitar or bass recording. Eight balanced line outputs are also available, two with a level control on the front panel for monitoring.
The unit also features a built-in DSP Mixer for low-latency digital mixing. Each channel has four-band EQ and compression.
The US-16x08 can also be used as a standalone mic preamp.
Mac and Windows drivers are provided, as well as USB Audio Compliance 2.0 drivers for iOS compatibility. MIDI input and output are also available on the rear panel.
The metal case was designed by designbox studio and includes a pair of removable �bio-cell� side panels. The side panels angle the interface towards the user on a desktop, which makes the switches and knobs easier to read. Rack ears are also included with the US-16x08.
