Tascam's US-428 DAW Controller/USB Interface Now OS X Compatible

Drivers available as free download By DMN Staff Writer
Tascam's US-428 DAW Controller/USB Interface now works with OS X, with the release of OS X drivers that are compatible with Mac operating systems 10.1 or higher. The new drivers are available as a free download from the Tascam web site. at

The new drivers allow Macintoshes running the OS X operating system to "see" the US-428 over the USB bus, which in turn enables it to provide control and interfacing capabilities for music and audio recording software with OS X compatibility.

New US-428 Manager tools (similar to US-428 control panels in earlier Mac operating systems) enable users to make adjustments to host audio data buffering to maximize the performance of their DAW software controlled via the US-428. With the new drivers, the US-428 becomes integrated with the core audio and MIDI services of OS X, allowing for full multi-client inputs and outputs. Also, a special consideration in the US-428's OS X driver design enables users to take advantage of ultra-low audio latency performance via the USB bus, according to Tascam.

The release of the OS X drivers results from Tascam's partnership with Frontier Design Group, and its role as an engineering resource for Tascam's computer audio products, according to Mike McRoberts, Tascam product development manager.
