Tascam Introduces iXR USB Audio/MIDI Interface for iOS Devices

Tascam has announced the iXR USB Audio/MIDI Interface, a new connectivity option for iPad and iPhone recording applications.

Tascam said the new interface was designed to connect mobile devices to professional audio components. The iXR is a full featured “Made for iPad” PC/Mac USB audio interface that also delivers direct connectivity to iPhone and iPad via the standard iOS Lightning or 30-pin connector, without the need for special adapters or mini-plugs.

Featuring two Ultra-HDDA mic preamps with phantom power, mic and instrument-level inputs, zero-latency monitoring, MIDI in and out and supporting up to 96kHz/24-bit resolution, the iXR is an all-in-one, professional audio interface in a slim, rugged, backpack-approved package that’s equally at home on stage or in the studio.

With balanced stereo outputs, the iXR is also the perfect bridge between an iPad and professional quality audio systems. Recording to an iOS device is also much easier using the device. Bundled with Cubase LE for Mac and Windows, as well as Cubasis LE for iOS, the iXR can act as the centerpiece of a digital recording system.

A microphone or musical instrument can be connected to any iOS, Mac or PC device for recording with zero-latency direct monitoring.

The Tascam iXR will be available soon with a list price of $259.99 and a street price of $159.99.
