High-quality HDDA microphone preamplifiers

6 Analog inputs for multi-channel recording
The US-1200 is loaded with four XLR connectors supplying +48V phantom power and two TRS balanced inputs. The balanced low-noise connections are ideal for line connection equipment e.g. keyboards, etc. In addition, INPUTs 5 & 6 also support high-impedance recording for guitar and bass. The wealth of inputs makes the unit ideal for band recording.
Low-latency monitoring for stress-free recording

On-board DSP mixer with two operational modes
The built-in DSP mixer can be used for various purposes simply by switching modes.
Multi-track mode facilitates music production. The input sound and monitor mix can be adjusted separately, fine-tuning the balance between recording and playback volumes optimally. Monaural monitoring is also a possibility within the mixer operation.
Stereo-mix mode is convenient for internet streaming, live broadcasts or video editing.
It is possible to deliver not only input sound but also sound from the PC through the unit and back to the recording by mixing it inside the US-1200.
On-board DSP effects
The DSP effects consist of reverb, a compressor and EQ to aid in monitoring your sound.
(The effects cannot be used when recording at 88.2/96 kHz resolutions.)
The dynamics effects allow one system to be used at the same time. Compressor and 3-band equalizer functions are available. Utilization of these enhancing effects add to the uniqueness of your sound by boosting high ranges when youre using dynamic microphones, or reconfiguring the vocals level by applying a light compressor.
Reverb is available for your send effects. When recording; dry vocals can sound impassionate but by applying light reverb, sing gracefully and in the end, achieve a better result.
