TASCAM Celesonic US-20×20 USB 3.0 Audio Interface at a Glance:

  • Built-in DSP for EQ, compression, and reverb
  • Digital patchbay makes I/O management easier
  • Save mixer Scenes for instant recall

Built-in DSP for EQ, compression, and reverb

Make mixing easier on yourself by using the Celesonic US-20×20’s built-in DSP to add EQ and compression to inputs when tracking. Cut out excessive low end, add some air to dull sources, and prevent clipping from signal spikes, all without adding any latency. Use the built-in reverb send to give musicians a better headphone mix. Many recording engineers believe in finalizing your sounds as much as possible when tracking, and the built-in DSP in the TASCAM Celesonic US-20×20 makes that easier to achieve.

Digital patchbay makes I/O management easier

The TASCAM Celesonic US-20×20 allows you to route any input to any output, analog or digital. You can also select which outputs the headphone outs are monitoring. Leave all your gear connected, and simply re-route your signal flow from within the mixer software.

Save mixer Scenes for instant recall

Once you have your signals routed the way you want and have added EQ, compression, and reverb to taste, you can save your setup as a Scene for instant recall. You can save up to 10 Scenes, allowing you to recall your workflow for tracking, editing, mixing, and any other applications you need.
