5th October 2015 – Watford – TASCAM, the brand synonymous with professional recording products, has released the Trackpack 2×2 and 4×4 recording studio bundles, offering an affordable and easy way to start recording from the comfort of your own home.
The idea entry-level package for users wanting to easily create stereo recordings from a variety of instruments, the Trackpack 4×4 comes with a US-4×4 audio interface, two TM-80 microphones and two sets of TH-02 headphones.
Right out of the box, the Trackpack 4×4 can capture any performance in stunning clarity, thanks to the two TM-80 condenser microphones and shockmounts. These can be used to capture a single instrument in stereo, or a single instrument and vocals simultaneously.
The USB-powered US-4×4 audio interface, featuring four XLR/TRS (mic/line) analogue inputs with phantom power, is great for users stepping into the recording world for the first time, with easy to use controls complementing serious recording capabilities; the Ultra-HDDA mic preamps boast -125dBu EIN rating, resulting in a very low noise floor. Due to the wide dynamic range, the US-4×4 can also be used with dynamic microphones in addition to condenser mics.
Designed for great studio monitoring, the TH-02 headphones provide acoustic isolation with a closed design and are easily stored or transported by folding completely into the headband. With a wide frequency response of 18Hz to 22kHz, these headphones will also offer a clear, uncoloured sound for monitoring during mixdown.
Included with the Trackpack bundle are codes for Cakewalk Sonar X3 LE and Ableton Live Lite 9 DAW software, making the Trackpack 4×4 the complete bundle for first-time computer recorders.
The Trackpack 2×2 includes everything you need to record music on your computer: TASCAM’s US-2×2 USB audio interface, one TM-80 studio condenser microphone complete with shockmount, one set of TH-02 headphones and Cakewalk Sonar X3 LE and Ableton Live Lite 9 DAW software.
Perfectly suited to individuals wanting to take their first steps into music recording, the Trackpack 2×2 features all the essential equipment needed, including the US-2×2 USB audio interface. Powered via USB for Windows users, the US-2×2 features two XLR/TRS (mic/line) analogue inputs with phantom power. These allow the input of condenser mics and the balanced connection of synthesizers and other equipment, whilst guitars can be directly connected enabling the use of 3rd-party plug-in effects. Using an AC adapter, the US-2×2 is even compatible with iOS products such as iPad and iPhone.
Similar to the Trackpack 4×4, codes for Cakewalk Sonar X3 LE and Ableton Live Lite 9 DAW software are included, whilst both bundles are compatible with many other DAWs.
