For live streaming of music sessions, games or similar broadcasts over the internet using a Windows, Mac, iOS or iPadOS device, all models have a mono/stereo switchable Loopback function and support OBS Studio and other streaming software. Each of the interfaces comes with Steinberg Cubase LE (including Cubasis LE3) for recording and production, IK Multimedia Sample Tank SE 4 offering a massive 30-Gigabyte sound library, and a free 3-month subscription to Auto-Tune Unlimited from Antares.
The smallest member of the series, the US-1x2HR, is ideally suited for solo performers. It has one XLR microphone input, one TRS instrument/line input (both switchable to line inputs on RCA connectors) and two RCA outputs.
The US-2x2HR is a terrific choice for music production, podcasts, and live streaming. It provides two mic/line/instrument inputs and two balanced line outputs as well as MIDI I/O to add keyboards, drum machines and other MIDI equipment to the production environment.
Ideal for people building state-of-the-art music production environments, the US-4x4HR provides four XLR mic inputs, four TRS balanced line inputs (two of which can also be used for instruments), four balanced line outputs, MIDI I/O and two headphones connectors. Tascam underlines that all US-HR series models are also excellent for use as high-quality standalone preamplifiers due to their outstanding sound characteristics.
