Overview

The TASCAM US-600 6-in/4-out USB 2.0 Audio/MIDI Interface is the perfect choice for portable recording of multiple sources from your laptop computer. Four high-definition XLR microphone inputs include phantom power for detailed recording with condenser microphones. All channels can be passed to your computer with 96kHz/24-bit audio resolution.

Each input on the US-600 uses an XLR/TRS combo jack to support microphone or line level sources and includes a signal/clip LED to help you set your input level. Input 1 has an instrument-level switch for direct recording of guitar or bass, and a direct monitor path allows musicians to hear their performance without a delay from the computer. On the rear panel, the US-600 includes a pair of unbalanced outputs, MIDI input and output and a stereo S/PDIF digital in and out.

A copy of Cubase LE5 is included”the latest version of Steinberg's 48-track workstation software. VST plug-in support, automated mixing and MIDI tracks allow you to craft large productions without adding any other software. If you want to use your own software, the US-600 supports most Mac and Windows software such as Logic Pro, Live, Nuendo, Digital Performer, Fruity Loops, and Pro Tools 9.

              Fantastic

              By Tyler Stephens

              from Albany, OR

              Comments about Tascam US-600 USB Audio Interface:

              I have gone through my fair share of both USB and FireWire interfaces in the last few years and this one is by far the best. The clarity is fantastic, set up took less than 5 minutes and I can't stop recording since I did so. 1/4 outputs for the monitors would be nice but that is my only caveat. If you run your mixes through a board with stereo outs then you won't even need all four inputs. It weighs virtually nothing and it looks great next to my board and preamp. Overall I am very satisfied with this purchase.

              Doesn't Work with Mac OSX Lion...

              By Nathaniel Thompson

              from Leesburg, Virginia

              Comments about Tascam US-600 USB Audio Interface:

              Mac OSX Lion is not supported with the Tascam US-600. I looked everywhere for a solution online, downloaded 'the latest' drivers and it's widely known that Tascam ls not a Mac supporter. I just wish I was made aware of that before I bought this product. Don't let the Specifications fool you into believing that this works with OSX 10.6.3 'or later' as stated on this site or on the product's box. The drivers simply are not supported with Mac's latest OS so if you are a Lion user BEWARE! Your Mac won't recognize this device.
