4 – Connections
USB connection
Use the included USB cable to connect the unit to a computer as
shown in the illustration.
CAUTION
Some USB devices access the USB bus frequently. In order
to avoid audio signal dropouts, clicking and other noises,
we strongly recommend that you do not connect other USB
devices to the same bus that this unit is using. Connecting
USB keyboards and mice, however, to the same bus should
not be a problem.
Audio connections
Analog audio signals input into this device from mics, keyboards
and other audio equipment can be converted into digital
signals and transferred to the computer via USB. In addition, by
connecting speakers (through an amplifier if not powered)or
headphones to this unit, you can monitor audio signals that are
input to this unit and output from the computer.
CAUTION
Before connecting audio equipment, set the unit’s INPUT
1/2 and PHONES LEVEL knobs to their lowest values.
Failure to do so could cause sudden loud noises from
monitoring equipment, and this could damage the
equipment or harm hearing.
Microphones
Connect mics to the ANALOG (BALANCED) MIC IN 1/2 jacks on
the rear panel.
Follow the procedures below to turn phantom power on when
using a condenser mic that requires it.
Turning phantom power on for the ANALOG
(BALANCED) MIC IN 1 jack
Set the analog input selection button to mic for the Analog
1 channel on the MIXER page. Then, press the MIXER PANEL
button until the INPUT 1 +48V indicator lights.
Turning phantom power on for the ANALOG
(BALANCED) MIC IN 2 jack
Set the analog input selection button to mic for the Analog
2 channel on the MIXER page. Then, press the LINK LINE
button until the INPUT 2 +48V indicator lights.
CAUTION
• Turn phantom power on only when using a condenser
microphone that requires it.
• Turning phantom power on when a dynamic mic or other
mic that does not require it is connected could damage the
equipment.
• Do not connect or disconnect mics while phantom power is
on. Doing so could cause a loud noise and might damage
the equipment.
• Before turning phantom power on or off, set the PHONES
LEVEL knob and the master fader on the MIXER page to
their minimum values. Depending on the connected mics,
sudden loud noises from monitoring equipment could occur,
and this could damage the equipment or harm hearing.
• Supplying phantom power to some ribbon mics will break
them. If you are unsure, do not supply phantom power to a
ribbon mic.
• Turning this unit off resets the phantom power setting, so
phantom power will be off when the unit is turned on again.
14 TASCAM
UH-7000
Follow the procedures to turn phantom power on again if it
is necessary.
Digital connections with sound modules,
MD/CD players and other audio sources
Connect the digital inputs and outputs of these devices to the
DIGITAL (AES/EBU) IN/OUT jacks on the back of the unit .
NOTE
This unit can output AES/EBU and S/PDIF digital audio
signals.
Use the Mixer Panel MIXER page DIGITAL OUTPUTS FORMAT
buttons to set the output format.
CAUTION
To use a digital input, the Sample Clock Source setting must
be set to Automatic on the INTERFACE page of the Mixer
Panel. (This makes the connected device the clock master.)
If Sample Clock Source is set to Internal, signals will not
be able to be input through the DIGITAL (AES/EBU) IN
jack and the signal from the DIGITAL (AES/EBU) OUT
jack will be looped back within the unit unchanged as the
digital input. In this case, depending on the settings of the
computer application, the signal from the DIGITAL (AES/
EBU) OUT jack could loop and result in noise. An example
and countermeasure are described below.
Example
In a DAW application, this unit's digital input is assigned
to the input of a track and this unit's digital output is
assigned to the output. In this case, input monitoring of
that track will result in the following noise loop.
Track output w unit's digital output w unit's digital
input w track input w track output (beginning of loop)
Countermeasure
In order to prevent this loop, turn input monitoring off
in the DAW or set the input assignment for that track to
something other than this unit's digital input.
Analog connections with electronic instruments and other audio equipment
Connect electronic instruments and other audio equipment to
the ANALOG (BALANCED) LINE IN 1/2 jacks on the back of the
unit .
Analog record players
The output of an analog record player cannot be connected
directly to this unit. To connect an analog record player to this
unit, a phono amp and equalizer must be connected between
them (or the output jacks of an audio amplifier that has phono
input jacks must be used).
Monitor speakers
Connect monitor speakers (powered speakers or an amplifier
and speaker system) to the ANALOG (BALANCED) OUTPUT L/R
jacks on the back of the unit.
Headphones
Connect headphones to the PHONES jack (standard stereo) on
the front of the unit.

2 Audio Performance (Windows only)
The driver for the unit stores the audio input and output
signals transferred to and from the computer temporarily in
a buffer.
You can adjust the buffer size, according to the use conditions.
Options
Highest latency:
maximum buffer size
High latency:
large buffer size
Normal latency:
medium buffer size (default)
Low latency:
small buffer size
Lowest latency:

16 TASCAM
UH-7000
NOTE
• Smaller buffer sizes result in less audio signal delay
(latency), but require high-speed processing by the
computer. If the processing cannot keep up, for example,
due to other system operations, clicking and popping noises
might occur and the audio signal might even drop out.
• Increasing the buffer size will stabilize operation and
suppress negative effects on audio signals from system
operations, but the delay in audio signals sent to the
computer will increase.
• On Mac OS X, set the buffer size in each audio application
that uses a buffer. For details, see the operation manual of
the audio application that you are using.
3 Sample Clock Source

88 Compressor
When the input volume exceeds the THRESHOLD level, the input
volume is compressed, reducing output volume variation.
For example, by reducing the levels of sounds that are high
level, lower level sounds become relatively louder, creating
a more even volume level throughout and a more sustained
sound.
In the COMPRESSOR tab, the three meters show the level of the
signal input to the compressor (INPUT), the level of the signal
output from the compressor (OUTPUT) and the gain reduction
caused by the compressor (GR).

• With one exception explained below, only one dynamics
effect can be used at a time. For this reason, if you turn on
a different dynamics effect, the dynamics effect that you
are currently using will automatically be turned off. The
exception, however, is that when the sampling frequency is
44.1 kHz or 48 kHz, both the LIMITER and LOW CUT effects
on the LIMITER/LOW CUT page can be used at the same
time. When using these two effects at the same time, the
send effect cannot be used.
• Turning the dynamics effect on/off on this page is linked to
the dynamics effect on/off setting on the MIXER page.
• Turning it on will not be possible when an effect cannot be
used because of sampling frequency conditions.

the sound returns to its uncompressed level after the
input sound goes below the threshold.
Range: 10 ms–1000 ms (default: 420 ms)
GAIN knob
Sets the gain of the output signal.
When the volume is compressed, the output level
becomes lower than the input level. Use the GAIN knob
to increase the output level so that it is close to the input
level.
Range: 0 dB–32 dB (default: 4 dB)
88 DE-ESSER
This is a compressor specialized for high frequencies. Use it to
reduce vocal “s” sounds and other harsh high-frequency noises.
NOTE
• If the input is a stereo signal (stereo-linked channel or
master), compression will start and be applied to both
channels when either the left or right input channel exceeds
the threshold level.
• When the compressor is off, the compressor curve will
appear but the meters will not be active.
88 Noise Suppressor
When the input volume becomes less than the threshold level,
the output level is reduced automatically to suppress noise.
When the threshold level is exceeded, the sound is output at its
ordinary level again.
This is useful for reducing noise during performances and
pauses in sound input.
THRESHOLD knob
Sets the threshold level that will cause the effect to start/
stop.
Range: −84 dB to −24 dB (default: −64 dB)
SUPPRESSION knob
Sets the amount the output level will be reduced when
the input sound becomes less than the threshold level.
The higher the value, the more the output level and
noise will be reduced.
Range: 12 dB to 72 dB (default: 42 dB)
ATTACK knob
Sets the amount of time until the set suppression
amount is reached after the input sound goes below the
threshold level.
Range: 0 ms–4000 ms (default: 5 ms)
RELEASE knob
Sets the amount of time until suppression stops after the
input sound exceeds the threshold level.
Range: 0 ms–4000 ms (default: 320 ms)
FREQUENCY knob
Sets the lowest frequency that causes the de-esser to
function.
Range: 1 kHz–4 kHz (default: 1.15 kHz)
DEPTH knob
Sets the amount of compression.
The higher the value the greater the compression (and
de-essing effect).
Range: 1–100 (default: 25)
88 EXCITER
This effect emphasizes high-frequency harmonics to add clarity
and sparkle while maintaining the original sound.
FREQUENCY knob
Sets the frequency above which harmonics are emphasized.
Range: 1 kHz–4 kHz (default: 2.00 kHz)
DEPTH knob
Sets the amount that harmonics are emphasized.
The higher the value, the more they are emphasized.
Range: 1–100 (default: 75)
NOTE
If the input is a stereo signal (stereo-linked channel or
master), noise suppression will start when both the left and
right input channels go below the threshold level.

88 EQ (3-band parametric Equalizer)
Use this to increase or decrease the levels of specific frequency
ranges. This can be used, for example, to enhance the sound
of individual instruments, to adjust the balance of a wide
frequency range and to cut specific unwanted frequencies.
FREQUENCY knob
Sets the cutoff frequency of the low-cut filter.
Options: 40 Hz, 80 Hz (default), 120 Hz
NOTE
The frequency response at the current settings is shown as a
graph even when the equalizer is off.
The equalizer has a high-shelf HIGH band, a low-shelf LOW band
and a peaking (bell-shaped) MID band.
LOW GAIN knob
Sets the amount the level is increased or decreased for
the LOW band.
Range: ±12 dB (default: 0 dB)
LOW FREQ knob
Sets the cutoff frequency of the LOW band.
Range: 32 Hz–1.6 kHz (default: 100 Hz)
MID GAIN knob
Sets the amount the level is increased or decreased for
the MID band.
Range: ±12 dB (default: 0 dB)
MID FREQ knob
Sets the cutoff frequency of the MID band.
Range: 32 Hz–18 kHz (default: 1.0 kHz)
MID Q knob
Sets the acuteness of the peak of the MID band.
The higher the value the more acute it becomes, making
it affect a narrower frequency band. The lower the value,
the less acute it becomes, making it affect a broader
frequency band.
Range: 0.25–16 (default: 0.5)
HIGH GAIN knob
Sets the amount the level is increased or decreased for
the HIGH band.
Range: ±12 dB (default: 0 dB)
HIGH FREQ knob
Sets the cutoff frequency of the HIGH BAND.
Range: 1.7 kHz–18 kHz (default: 10 kHz)
88 Limiter/Low cut filter
Set both the limiter and low-cut filter effects on this page.
The LIMITER adjusts the input gain in response to the analog
input level. This function reduces the recording level when loud
sounds are input to prevent distortion. The limiter function can
only be used on the analog inputs.
The LOW-CUT filter reduces the sounds of air-conditioning and
wind and other low-frequency noises that are easily picked up
by microphones.
22 TASCAM
UH-7000
• When the sampling frequency is 44.1 kHz or 48 kHz, both
the limiter and low-cut filter functions can be used together
at the same time. When using the limiter and low-cut filter
functions at the same time, the send effect cannot be used.
• The limiter can only be turned on and off. It does not have
any adjustable parameters.

88 REVERB
This effect adds reverberations to the original sound. Multiple
sounds are delayed at various times with damping over time
that is as natural as possible to produce reverberations like
those of a hall, live-music club or studio, for example.
Reverb type switch
Use to select the type of reverb.
Depending on the type, the density and level of the
reverb sound changes.
Options: HALL (default), ROOM, LIVE, STUDIO, PLATE
PRE DELAY knob
Set the amount of delay until the first reverberations.
The larger the value, the larger the reverberations make
the room sound.
Range: 0–100 ms (default: 42 ms)
