Equally important, the upward tilt offers the ergonomic benefit of being angled in such a way as to make the interface easy to work with. A recording environment with low noise and great audio performance is a relevant factor for vocal and, in particular, wind instruments. The US-1x2HR features an Ultra-HDDA microphone preamplifier with a very low noise level that makes this interface the ideal tool for recording with a condenser microphone.
You can also plug in your electric guitar or bass directly using the line/instrument input and use plug-in effects on your computer recording (DAW) software. Or connect any instrument or hi-fi amplifier's line output to the line input.
The US-1x2HR is also a great tool on the road: Combine it with an iPad and you can capture nature sounds, stream interviews from live events, or simply record your ideas with high quality wherever you go. Even if you're not so familiar with recording equipment, the US-1x2HR's user-friendly design enables you to use it right away. The US-1x2HR can improve your sound when playing music from your computer. No matter if you create your own dance music using software synths and other plug-ins or if you are the DJ on a birthday party - with its high audio quality and separate controls for headphones and line outputs (loudspeakers) the US-1x2HR easily turns your computer into a perfect-sounding playback device.You may have noticed that your sound system is not very loud when powered directly from a computer. When using the US-1x2HR to feed your power amplifiers, its high line output level ensures you get the maximum power out of your sound system. Instead of a computer, you can also use an iPad or iPhone together with the US-1x2HR to make music. Performance has been tested with not only the bundled digital audio workstation (Cubasis LE3), but also with other popular recording software - you can continue to use them even if you change DAW software. The Settings Panel, which is installed on your computer, comes with a variety of functions. You can choose whether direct monitoring is done in mono or stereo and adjust the balance between input and computer signals.
You can also switch the hardware inputs on and off individually and set the Windows buffer size according to your working environment. For online broadcasting, Internet communication and other live streaming applications, the US-HR series interfaces offer a Loopback function which can merge input signals 1/2 with signals 1/2 coming from the computer (each can be set to mono or stereo) and send that mix to the broadcasting or other software on the computer.A software slider allows to adjust the final "broadcast" volume independently from the unit's line output level setting.
