Tascam US-4x4 Utils

Guy Sherman
Hi All,

On this page (https://wiki.linuxaudio.org/wiki/hardware_support) the Tascam US-4x4 is listed as "supported There is a Windows and Mac configuration program, but it doesn't control much."

I own one, and recently discovered that one of the things that is quite important if you need four distinct outs is controlling the output routing of the line outputs; without the Windows util, basically all the signals coming in from the PC are mixed together, along with inputs from the preamps (based on the Monitor Balance knob), and then the output is sent as stereo pairs out both of the pairs of line outputs.

So, I kinda reverse engineered their USB protocol a bit, and wrote a tool to let you configure the outputs.

Anyway, maybe that will help someone else out. Also, if anyone who maintains the Wiki can let me know how to update that hardware support page, I can link this util from there.

Happy composing/recording/mixing/listening!
