Tascam US-32 overview

  • 1Description

Designed for personal and aspiring broadcasters and gamecasters (i.e. those who broadcast their gaming prowess over the web), the Tascam MiNiSTUDIO Personal US-32 is a high-speed USB 2.0 interface. It's capable of capturing 24-bit/96 kHz audio, compatible with Mac and Windows computers, works with most DAW software, and can even interface with iOS devices using an adapter (available separately). With its intuitive layout and various inputs for recording the human voice, it's suitable for those looking to get into podcasting, gamecasting, and broadcasting—though its included software and high-resolution digital capacity renders it useful for all levels of broadcasters as well.

For inputs, the US-32 sports a combination XLR/TRS input, a 3.5mm jack suitable for headset mics, and an auxiliary 3.5mm stereo input most agreeable for looping in the signal of consumer-grade audio equipment. A built-in omnidirectional condenser mic bypasses the need for extrinsic microphones, should you wish to speak directly into the interface. The unit provides two headphone outputs—one 1/4", one 3.5mm—as well as 48V phantom power for condenser microphones and support for 4-pole headphone/mic configurations.

Hardware Components
The US-32 features an efficient hardware layout that clearly displays its various features. Glancing at the tabletop interface, you'll see the combo XLR / 1/4" jack on the left, the built-in microphone in the center, and a sizable level meter to monitor the incoming signal. The reverb-blend knob sits prominently between the input-selector switch and on-air button, which commences transmission to your computer or device.

The lower portion of the interface clearly shows its output knob, three pads for triggering on-board sound effects, and an effect on/off pad. Thus, while creating your personal broadcast, you'll have the tools you need to keep the show running at your fingertips.
Included Software
This device comes with software for better utilizing the hardware component of the US-32. The software features two panels, giving you an Easy view into the system and an Expert peak behind the curtain, so to speak.

The Easy panel breaks down your options for manipulating signal into three overarching categories: Sound (presets for your particular sonic setup), Effect (presets for manipulating your vocals upon pressing the effect on/off pad), and Reverb (types of ambiance with which you can effect your vocal). Beneath these knobs, you can assign the sounds of the trigger pads, and set their volume as well.

The Expert panel, on the other hand, gives you comprehensive controls of the US-32's compressor, equalizer, and reverb. In this panel, you also have control over buffer size, as well as the ability to manipulate the trigger pad's settings further; for example, you can set the rate of fade-in and fade-out for the sample being triggered.

    Tascam US-32 reviews

    MiNiSTUDIO Personal US-32 Audio Interface for Online Broadcasts is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Device, could use better Documentation This device works great and is perfect for live recording podcasts. I purchased it so I could record a podcast live with my friend in another State and cue music and other effects with minimal editing afterward. We both work in TV and even with our backgrounds it took a little poking around to get it to work right. If your objective is just to record to one track in broadcast mode it's very simple to setup. If you want to run split tracks with ASIO drivers it takes a little digging. There is not much documentation on how to setup the device. That's my only negative. If you're looking to run split audio separating the PON effects from the mic tracks etc. on a PC, you'll need to get a dedicated sound card. In this day and age that sounds like an antiquated thing and it is for the most part but it's the easiest way to get the ASIO drivers to work. There are software solutions like ASIO4ALL but purchasing a 40 dollar sound card like the ASUS Xonar DGX was the simplest solution for me. As an added bonus the headphone pre-amp on the sound card sounds excellent if you're used to not having one on a motherboard sound setup. All in all this is a great piece of hardware that I'm surprised more people arn't using. I personally like recording most of our podcast live like an old school college radio setup; It adds to the atmosphere. However having the split tracks allows you to edit things out cleanly when you need to. Get this product if you want to have fun making podcasts!
