The TRACKPACK 2x2 assembles everything you need to record music on your computer. Included in this complete recording bundle is Tascam’s US-2x2 USB audio interface, TM-80 studio condenser microphone with shockmount, TH-02 headphones, plus Cakewalk Sonar X3 LE and Ableton Live Lite 9 DAW software. Included with the software are dozens of plug-in instruments, effects, and loops to get you started.
The US-2x2 is a 2-in/2-out USB interface, bus powered from your Windows or Mac computer. A pair of Ultra-HDDA mic preamps provide up to 57 dB of gain and the best noise and distortion specs in their class. The audio design features high-performance, musical components like NE5532 op amps for rich sound quality without colouring the source. Class-compliant drivers enable use with tablets like the iPad when using an optional power supply.
The TM-80 is a condenser microphone with cardioid characteristic ideal for vocals, drums, and acoustic instruments. It includes a shockmount to reduce unwanted low-frequency noise from the floor and a desktop stand for easy setup.
The TH-02 closed-back headphones provide acoustic isolation from the environment while recording and a good reference during mixdown.
With everything included for capturing and reproducing audio with your computer, TRACKPACK 2x2 offers an affordable and easy way to launch your first computer-recording studio. FeaturesUS-2x2 USB Audio/MIDI Interface
As a 2-input/2-output USB audio/MIDI interface, the US-2x2 is perfect for music creation – and novice users in particular. It offers serious recording capabilities with 96 kHz/24-bit quality with easy-to-understand operation so users can make high-quality recordings as soon as the interface is connected.
Mic preamps are the key to audio quality, and the Ultra-HDDA mic preamps in the US-2x2 boasts –125 dBu EIN rating which means a very, very low noise floor. Because of the wide dynamic range, this interface can also be used with dynamic microphones in addition to condenser mics. This makes it ideal for a variety of applications from recording vocals, pianos and acoustic guitars.
The radical eye-catching angled design was crafted by a German designer, who has worked on numerous well-known devices used for music creation, and is optimized for ease of use on the desktop.
The newly designed driver software is easy to install, and easy to master by anyone. Operation has been tested with major DAW applications, so the user can choose their favourite DAW without concern. The US-2x2 can also be used as audio interface with iPads and other popular iOS devices by simply utilizing a genuine Apple Lightning-to-USB camera adapter (an optional AC adapter is necessary to use the US-2x2 with iOS devices).
With the potential for future use with other DAWs and iOS devices, the US-2x2 is an ideal ‘first’ audio interface. There is also a complete bundle available including US-2x2, headphones and studio condenser mic (TRACKPACK 2x2).

You've probably read the USB Tekspek, and perhaps your intrigue, or product interest, has lead you to look up Firewire as well. The two are similar in some respects, particularly some of the products that use the two technologies. However, Firewire has its differences, which means it has both benefits and drawback when compared to USB. This Tekspek will look at Firewire and also look at it with respect to USB.
System Buses & Bandwidth
Date Issued: 21st Oct 2008
In computing terms, system buses are used to connect various components to the motherboard’s core logic and, often, to each other. Modern PCs run with a multitude of high-speed buses ranging from the interconnects between, say, the chipset and the CPU, graphics card, memory, and peripherals.
Updating drivers can sometimes be a bit of a gamble. Will the drivers come with an installer? Will you need to uninstall the old drivers first? Many drivers these days do come with an installer, which simplifies the process dramatically.
