Designed by TASCAM and Frontier Design Group, the US-224 is our second 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 mouseclicks 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 two 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 Cubase LE for Windows and Mac OS. With 48 channels of audio and 64 MIDI tracks, it's a perfect complete setup for anyone getting into the world of computer audio recording.
