TASCAM, the Pro Audio Division of TEAC America, unveiled two new USB 2 bus-powered audio interfaces: the 2-in/2-out US-322 ($149.99 street) and 6-in/4-out or 4-in/6-out (depending on the setting of line 3 and line 4) US-366 ($199.99 street). Both units are bundled with Steinberg Cubase LE6 and support Windows XP/7/8 and Mac OS X (Snow Leopard, Lion, and Mountain Lion). The US-322 records at up to 24-bit/96 kHz, while the US-366 records at up to 24-bit/192 kHz.

Both are encased in similar aluminum casings; offer two XLR inputs with HDDA (High Definition Discrete Architecture) mic pre's and +48-volt phantom power; onboard DSP mixers, offering selectable operational modes—multitrack mode and stereo-mix mode; and onboard DSP effects (compressor and EQ insert effects, and a reverb-send effect). The HDDA mic pre's offer a stated frequency response of 10 to 68k Hz, a 98dB S/N ratio, ‐120dBu EIN and THD+N at 0.0045%.

Both the US-322 and US-366 have two balanced XLR microphone/TRS line inputs, and the left channel can be switched to Guitar Input for high-impedance support; TRS balanced line outputs; and ¼-inch TRS headphone output. The US-322 features one mic XLR/line-guitar TRS input, one mic XLR/line TRS input, two line TRS and two line RCA outputs. The US-366 adds two line-level RCA inputs and one digital RCA/optical input/output. On the US-366, an optional remote controller, the RC-3F footswitch, can control the DAW transport.

These interfaces also promise low latency monitoring. A Mixer Panel button provides access to a PC-based software mixer. Mon Mix volume adjusts level balance from external devices and a PC. Each output is selectable between internal mixer output and PC sound.
