The Tascam US-1200 is a 6-in/4-out high-resolution audio interface with 4 high-quality HDDA (High Definition Discrete Architecture) microphone preamplifiers, ideal for home and project studio recording. The team at Tascam spent long, demanding hours developing the highly regarded HDDA mic preamps, carefully selecting just the right components to optimize sound quality and performance. In addition, the US-1200 also features low-latency monitoring, high-resolution 24-bit/96kHz audio, on-board DSP mixing, and on-board DSP effects making this an extremely versatile and great sounding tool for recording.

High-quality HDDA microphone preamplifiers
TASCAM spent months testing parts and circuitry to develop what are the now the highly regarded HDDA (High Definition Discrete Architecture) mic-preamps. The 4 XLR inputs are balanced microphone pre-amplifier circuits comprised of carefully selected components optimizing sound quality. The US-1200 is an optimally designed tool to clearly translate expressive performances to the DAW of your choice.

6 Analog inputs for multi-channel recording
The US-1200 is loaded with 4 XLR connectors supplying +48V phantom power and 2 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
Utilize the DSP Mixer for Low-latency monitoring. Control the monitor balance easily with the MON MIX knob.

Supports high-resolution recording up to 24-bit/96kHz
With increasing HDD capacity and ever-faster PCs, high-resolution formats are being used more frequently. Record at 96kHz/24-bit resolution and guarantee your music reaches it’s highest potential.

On-board DSP mixer with 2 operational modes
The built-in DSP mixer can be used for various purposes simply by switching modes.

Multi-track Mode
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
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.)

Dynamics effects
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 you’re using dynamic microphones, or reconfiguring the vocals level by applying a light compressor.

Send effect
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.

    As reviewed by Daniel on 6/16/2015

    I had been using an 8 channel usb mixer for years to broadcast live internet content, and the time had come to do some "hobby level" recording. I started out using the USB mixer, as I already knew every little nook, cranny, and cranky pot it had. It worked ok but was so NOISY. I tried several fixes, all to no avail. Right then I decided my time was more valuable than endlessly fiddling with a piece of equipment that was really not worth much. After some research, I decided to purchase the TASCAM US 1200. I am so glad I did! Immediately upon opening the box, I was amazed at the quality of the build. No cheap plastic panels, and the knobs/switches are solid and have a pro feel to them. In no time at all, I had the driver downloaded and was plugging in mics. Within a half hour, I had everything figured out and was hitting the "record" button. The results? Fantastic! The pre-amps are so sweet and the noise? Pretty much non-existent. I would strongly suggest this gem if you are looking to ease your way into doing some recording without having to break the bank. Superb, stress free experience, will buy more from TASCAM without a doubt.

    I have been a Tascam fan since the early Interfaces in the early 2000's and I was hooked. I love the HD preamps and how crispy they sound with my vocals. AWESOME PRODUCT...DEFINITELY WOULD BUY A COUPLE MORE...
