MONTEBELLO, CA - TASCAM (www.tascam.com) has created a command center for digital audio workstations with the US-2400: a new 25-fader DAW controller priced under $2,000. Compatible with a list of DAW software including Digidesign Pro Tools, the US-2400 features 25 touch-sensitive 100mm moving faders for full mix control over the biggest productions. Each of the 24 channels has an assignable encoder with an LED ring that shows the current value or doubles as a signal meter. A full transport section is also included for DAW control, as well as a joystick for surround panning.
"The US-2400 is our latest solution for computer-based audio production," says Jim Bailey, Product Manager for TASCAM. "It gives editors and mixers a familiar interface for interacting with digital audio workstations like Pro Tools, and its driverless installation keeps things simple so that they can concentrate on being creative. The US-2400 is the only universal fader controller to offer 24 faders for easy access to all of your channels, and the first with a joystick controller for mixing in 5.1 surround."
The TASCAM US-2400, co-developed with SaneWave, provides a professional mixing console feel to DAW recording software. A few of the new features include: 24 touch-sensitive 100mm moving faders; touch-sensitive motorized master fader; 24 encoders assignable to pan, aux, or channel strip, which provides EQ, Aux and Pan control; bank switching provides access to 192 channels; select, solo and mute buttons per channel; transport section with smooth Jog/Shuttle wheel; joystick controller for surround panning; high-speed USB connection to computer; "driverless" operation ready to function without installing driver software; compatible with DAW applications including Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Digital Performer, Sonar, Cubase SX and Nuendo.
