The US366 interface combines technologies like on-board digital mixers (DSP Mixer) and on-board digital effects (DSP Effects) all enclosed in an aluminum casing for the rugged reliability. In additon, the uS366 has improved HDDA (High Definition Discrete Architecture) mic pres which offer a wider frequency response (10Hz to 68kHz), high S/N ratio (98dB), low EIN (-120dBu) and low THD+N (0.0045%); qualities rarely achieved in interfaces this affordable.
Two XLR/TRS (MIC/LINE) Inputs with Full +48V Phantom Power Supply
The US366 is designed with two XLR with +48V phantom power and two TRS inputs. Having both options for condenser mics and line level inputs ensures you are getting the best possible sound and lowest-noise when recording. In addition, INPUT-1 can connect any high-impedance equipment directly, like a guitar.
The multi-track mode is ideal for music creation. This mode delivers independent monitor-mixing from a send-level like an inline-console to a PC. In addition, this mode delivers monaural-monitoring.
The stereo-mix mode makes podcast recording or broadcasting convenient and easy. An output audio signal from any PC can relay that signal back to the PC again via your DSP mixer. Any BGM from a PC can mix your voice by microphone then the mixed sound will transfer back to the PC again.
The US366 is designed with on-board effects such as compressor, 3-band EQ and Reverb all located on-board the DSP. While recording, you can use the input effects for any input signal and the reverb effect on any monitoring signal at the same time.
The input effects can be selected from compressor or 3-band EQ. Input effects can use various recording. For example, while recording vocals you can boost your high-frequency range with the 3-band EQ. Also, the compressor effect is very convenient at recording especially for bass guitar, vocal and drums.
The send effect include just reverb. The reverb effect is necessary articles at recording. Monitoring sound will get wet-sound by this reverb effect, but a send-sound to a PC keeps just dry sound.
Dedicated Mixer Panel Button Recalls The DSP Mixer with One-Click
The US366 is built with a MIXER PANEL button located conveniently on top. This button provides a one-click recall function for the DSP-mixer. When pushed a second time the mixer panel will be conveniently hidden.
Low-Latency Monitoring via DSP Mixer for Stress-Free Recording
The US366 provides low-latency monitoring via the on-board digital mixer. Volume can be monitored and adjusted easily with the dedicated knob on the top-panel.
Oversized LINE OUT Volume Knob for Easy Monitor Level Setting
This oversized volume knob can be an integral setting for easy and speedy fine level adjustments.
The US366's LINE 3-4 connectors can be selected between input and output to customize TASCAM's US366 to any recording environment. When INPUT is selected, you can connect an abundance of line-level audio devices. When selecting OUTPUT, connect to devices such as multiple headphone amplifiers. This system provides dedicated monitoring management for each player. (When operating on 192kHz, LINE 3-4 connectors outputs same signal as digital output.)
Coaxial/Optical Digital Inputs/Output
The US366 has two types of digital input/output connectors (RCA Coaxial and TOS-link Optical). Two outputs can transmit the same signal at the same time but when input is selected, only one connector is available at a time.
RC3F Foot Switch Ready – Control Your DAW Hands-Free
The US366 can connect the optional RC3F foot-switch to provide hands-free control for your DAW. Utilize this feature while playing your instrument or recording at a distance from your computer. This feature operating on Mackie Control or HUI emulation and can be select from two modes.
- PLAY mode: RW, PLAY/STOP, FF
- REC mode: PLAY, REC, STOP
