The iXR is a very portable audio MIDI interface that can be connected directly to an iPad with the lightning cable that usually comes with an iOS device. The great thing about an iPad is how easy it is to take anywhere. The iXR adopts this concept and offers possibilities for new styles of music creation.

The slim design without sharp edges or protuberances and the use of rolled aluminium lead to a tough body that can withstand being banged around when carried. The jacks on the front are protected by guards, while the jacks on the back are recessed in the surface, so you can carry this unit without worrying about damaging the jacks and other parts.

Tascam iXR with iPadOf course, this interface also provides the high audio quality expected of an audio creation device. The Ultra-HDDA mic preamps are also used in professional recorders and have been evaluated highly for their audio quality. With a signal-to-noise ratio of 101 dB and an Equivalent Input Noise of -125 dBu, the iXR has an impressively low noise level. This makes it possible to record various instruments, including acoustic guitars and wind instruments, as well as vocals in high-resolution formats.

There are few controls and use is extremely simple. With a focus on recording, functions have been selected carefully so that even beginners can learn to use it quickly. Setting applications are available both for computers and iOS devices. Unlike previous audio interfaces, this unit can be set up and upgraded even by people who do not have computers.

Take your iXR and iPad out for recording When you cannot make sound at home, head to a friend, for example. You can leave as soon as you put your iPad, iXR, mic and headphones in your bag. With its slim but tough body, carrying the iXR is no hassle. When you’re there, connect the iPad AC adapter to the iXR, and use the Lightning cable to connect it to the iPad. Connect your microphone, turn a few knobs and you are ready. Then, all you need to do is play or sing your heart out and record great performances. Arrange music on the iPad and create music without needing a computer An iPad can be used as a tool to view musical scores. By installing a DAW app, it can also be used for creating music and practicing. You can easily add a DAW app by downloading a demo version of Steinberg Cubasis LE for free from the App Store. When you connect the iXR, the function restrictions for this app will be unlocked. You can work in bed, in your living room or anywhere you like and how you like. You can realize your own music creation style without being restricted to “where the computer is”.

Start using your iPhone as a high-quality synthesizer Numerous software synthesizers are distributed through the App Store. Using the iXR, you can turn these apps into stage-ready synths. The sound quality of audio sources depends greatly on the digital-to-analogue conversion quality and the post-conversion audio circuit quality. The iXR has a high-quality output circuit, so sound from apps is also output as high-quality audio. The audience will not believe that the sound enveloping them is from an iPhone synthesizer app.

Edit every detail using the large display of a desktop computer One of the advantages of a desktop computer is its large display. If you have a Windows or Mac computer with a large screen, you can connect the iXR to it to enable smooth editing. This way you can record ideas with your iPad and make final adjustments comfortably on a desktop computer display.
