Tascam US-144 MKII Portable Audio/MIDI Interface

This product has now been superceded by the US 4x4, Click Here to Buy 

The follow-up to our mega popular US-122, the new US-144 MK II delivers everything you'd want in a portable audio/MIDI interface.

Record four tracks at a time and monitor them with zero latency. Whether you have a PC or a Mac, your song ideas go down in real time, real easy. Its size means you can take it anywhere you take your laptop, yet it's packed with features that make buying it an audio no-brainer. High quality mic inputs, digital SPDIF input and output, MIDI input and output, 96kHz/24-bit recording (better than CD quality) - all the stuff you'd want without the fluff you wouldn't (if you're fine with two channels and you don't need the SPDIF I/O, have a look at the US-122L).

The US-144 MKII: the answer to your recording needs.

Features

  • Two XLR mic inputs with phantom power
  • Digital audio input and output (SPDIF, coaxial)

  • Up to 96kHz/24-bit for high quality recordings
  • Zero-latency hardware monitoring
  • Seperate controls for output level and headphone volume
  • Bus powered for use with any PC or Mac, including laptops
  • Cubase LE4 included
