US-122L and US-144 Audio/MIDI Interfaces Provide Great-Sounding, Portable 96kHz Recording

Montebello, CA (July 14, 2006): The new TASCAM US-122L and US-144, the follow-ups to the mega-popular US-122, deliver audiophile-quality Audio/MIDI Interfaces in a portable, affordable package. USB 2.0 technology allows up to 96kHz/24-bit recording with zero latency hardware monitoring. They retain the rugged metal enclosure, pro XLR mic inputs and MIDI I/O of the US-122, and 48-track Cubase LE recording software makes them ready to rock right out of the box.

"Musicians have been traveling with their TASCAM PortaStudios for years, and these interfaces bring the PortaStudio philosophy into the laptop age," says Johnny DeLeon, Computer Products Channel Manager for TASCAM. "Our interfaces are designed by musicians for musicians, which means they're easy to use and sound great. We've even designed low-profile knobs for the top - so they're easy to slip into a backpack - and built them out of sturdy die-cast metal so they're built to last. They're sure to be the next go-to interfaces for portable computer recording at a great price."
