A recording studio at your fingertips
Whether you’re using a simple recording app like Garage Band, or working with a full-featured DAW, the TASCAM iXR can turn any location into a professional recording space. Sporting dual XLR ¼” Combo jacks and TASCAM’s unique HDDA microphone preamps, iXR allows you to easily connect any guitar, bass, keyboard or studio microphone with stellar results, which seamlessly combine with virtual instruments performed by your iPhone or iPad. Add in latency-free monitoring, a powerful headphone amp and balanced stereo outputs and you have a truly pro-quality recording rig that can easily fit into any messenger bag or backpack. And when you get home, iXR connects directly to your Mac or PC to deliver the quality and reliability that you’ve come to expect from a TASCAM audio interface.
