TASCAM iU2: preamp w/ 2x P48 for iOS
« on: January 22, 2012, 06:33:12 PM »
Don't know where this beast fits it.
Last time I checked the weak spot for all these iphone devices was the 16bit recording capacity limitation.
MSRP $149.

It has a battery lid, but it doesn't say anything about battery specs or running time on P48.

TASCAM’s iU2 is a premium sound quality audio interface for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. It includes all of the features of TASCAM’s best-selling USB audio interfaces, including a pair of great-sounding microphone inputs. The XLR inputs have phantom power for use with high-quality condenser microphones. These feed an onboard microphone preamp and A/D converter for better sound performance than those built into iPhone and iPad – true stereo recording with low noise and less tendency to distort. The inputs also accept line-level signals or you can plug a guitar or bass directly into your device.

In addition to compatibility with iOS devices, the iU2 also works with Mac and Windows computers. A zero-latency monitoring path allows musicians to hear themselves directly through the unit, without any distracting delay. MIDI in and out are provided to interface with synths and drum machines, and a digital output connects to digital mixers or recorders.

the 'battery lid' appears to be a storage compartment for the iOS dock cable (if you go to Tascam's page, you'll notice that the iOS cable emerges from the iU2 in a different spot than the other interface cables in the sample pics).

^^not sure if any of this makes sense, as i've just consumed about 2 cubic yards of coffee^^ 
These are my mics. There are many like them but these ones are mine. My mics are my best friends. They are my life. I must master them as I must master my life. Without me, my mics are useless. Without my mics I am useless.

Not real surprised, but they beat me to it  :(  At least mine will be . . . smaller and better
