Tascam has a new line of entry level interfaces with drivers that have buffers as small as 4 samples (on Windows)! This is over a USB-C connection.
This is the smallest asio buffer size i am aware of on any interface. With some RMEand Focusrite buffers around 3ms at 64 sample, are we approaching sub-milisecond lantencies over usb? This would be awsome! Ill keep my eyes open for latency specs, as i have not seem them yet.
Just thought it was an intersting innovation, and a good sign for interfaces of all ranges.
I'm in the process of putting my home studio together, but I'm having a bit of trouble getting two-way communication between my Mackie 24*8 bus mixing board, and a Tascam US-16x08.
I have limited experience with mixing boards, but a friend sold me the Mackie for "an offer I couldn't refuse".
I'm trying to hook up my Tascam 308 mixer to my Tascam 238 syncaset, then run each track back through the mixer for additional EQ, then go direct out of each channel strip (Tascam 308 allows you to do this) into a Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 to bounce in Logic for effects and further editing. This is possible right? When using the direct outs on the mixer into the interface inputs, should I use TS or TRS cables? Any help is greatly appreciated!
Hello, I need to buy a new interface for my home studio- Normaly things get done one track at a time. but at times a multi track jam would be very helpful. Amazon has two very bad reveiws on this piece of gear. But, they sound like the engineers aren't really pros. Not one of them mentioned Pro Tools 9 or how well this works with that platform. I would like to know if anyone has this or has used this with Pro Tools 9... Is this thing solid and dependable? Do the current drivers work? Can they be slaved together get 28 channels? 14 channels under $300. Hummmm.
I am new to audio interfaces and I have a few questions. I know that most of these should probably go directly to Tascam as pre-sales questions, but I'm wondering about the issues in general and how the answers apply to any brand of audio interface.
1) Is the audio signal sent into the computer through the USB connection? If so, what is the purpose of the unbalanced RCA jacks?
2) Can any audio software (like Audacity or Adobe Soundbooth) be used with this unit, or does it have to be used with the included software?
so basically a few months back i sold my Tascam us 122 (or 144) as i rarely used it and my laptop was sh*t and was rather impractical as i didnt have a desk so i had to use my bed with a laptop and interface which was rather annoying
so i bought a new pc which is on a desk (surprisingly enough) and I'm looking to get into recording again, my pc can handle practically anything you can through at it but it doesnt have a dedicated sound card (only the one on the mobo)
my budget is around £100 (i will happily go used)
This is a branch from my first post ("Yet Another Noob - interface questions")
Based on what I've read here, I've concluded that an audio interface is my next investment.
I don't mind starting with fewer inputs if I can expand later on by either adding another similar unit or additional preamps.
Based on a lot of reading, puzzling and looking at the specs rather than ad copy, it appears that all the major manufacturers have similar products at similar prices; it comes down to what flavor is right for me.
Hi, i just bought a Tascam US-144 usb/midi interface. It all works completely fine, except when i try to record, there's nothing there. i am running a bass directly into the guitar input with all the settings right for guitar, and the signal light is lit when i play.
anybody who knows interfaces well, i would appreciate your help greatly.
i seem to figure out what i need to do to get my mic to work on FL so i can record. please hit me up with some info thanks
Well.. my Tascam fw 1804 has just arrived. this is my first interface. are theyre any other 1804 users out there?
care to leave me some feedback on how this puppy runs? what do you guys use it for.. any defects?
I hope it is better from what I heard before from other people(broken signal when recording after a period of time).. once i get my firewire installed on my comp I will hopefully... through your reviews,have a better understanding of this rack interface.
