This is a good product, some reviews are rubbish, but this is a good product for the price, the pre-amps sound great, it has got 8 XLR inputs on the front, 2 Jack on the front, and 4 stereo on the back, adding up to 14 individual inputs for recording. These are great for live and for studio. i use this in my studio all the time. It has got the feature of using for Mac and windows, i use this for mac with logic, i can record all 14 inputs simontainously, which is what i wanted. It has got 4 outputs to, which i can connect toi go into my mixingg desk, or for headphone mixes depending on what i want. GREAT PRODUCT!

I had used this interface for over a year (both Mac and PC) before I bought RME Babyface so I hope my quite long experience with this interface could be useful for others.

So here are the pros and cons that I can mention.

Pros:
1) First of all that's the price as I already said. You won't get a better device with such great and huge features for 300 euro.
2) 8 XLR inputs with quite good quality preamps (not so perfect as in RME or other top class devices, but for the price you pay that's really worthy) plus 6 (six!) line ins (two of them have preamps too) that could be used SIMULTANEOUSLY! Yeah, that's really true! So could you imagine that if you had an additional 4 channel preamp you'll be able to record sound from 14 mics at once - that's enough to record some rock band live (totally miced drum set, 2 guitars with 2 mics each, bass and even keyboards). That's really the best (but sadly the only...) feature of this unit.
3) MIDI in/out + Digital in/out - not the last things in the studio.
4) 6 line outs (2 main and 4 others) - really good then using more than a pair of monitors.

Cons: (frankly speaking they are just the consequences of the low price)
1) Overall built quality. Look not so "luxurious" as top class interfaces.
2) Not perfect preamps that causes bad amplification curve. The sound could be hardly preamplified then turning the knob from, for example, nine o'clock to twelve and then it bursts for lots of dB.
3) Just one headphones out.
4) It has some kind of "drivers", but there is no possibility to set up anything, just the frequency rate and that's all. No mixers, no additional settings - nothing.
5) Frequent crashes and bugs that could be healed by turning on/off the device and sometimes the application you use.

Anyway, despite its cons, I think that's the best interface that you can buy for a little bit more than 300 euro. Price/quality/features ratio is really impressive. So I'd reccomend Tascam US-1800 for the small independent studios (or bands rehearsal places), really great to record demos or underground non-commercial albums!

For an affordable audio interface this is definitely worth the price!
I needed at least 8 xlr inputs for recording drums, and this did the trick!
And has a fairly large amount of gain, and with
Drawbacks:
There is only one headphone port, however a s simple splitter solved that problem.
The xlr ports are on the front, initially this seems like a benefit for easy access, however when placed in a racking shelf at the rear of my desk, the wires do tend to get in the way trailing along my desk, easily solved by having a space above or below the unit for the cables to go through to an xlr box, in my casem just on the floor.

At first glance you can see that it's a professional built product. This isn't the first interface that I used, but the one before it was quite limited compared to this (less in & outs). Quite easy to install and use with a DAW and record (I use ith through ableton). It also works perfectly with mac. Pretty good preamps, & pretty good sound & clean sound. Another thing that I like from this product are the red led's that are found on every knob pot. These show you that an input is peaking, which is very helpful when it comes to recording. The only negative thing I can say about this product is that the knobs are quite close to each other & can't be seen that much in the dark, but still this isn't a problem because it can be avoided by simply switching on the lights in the room. I would surely recommend this product to someone, especially who is looking to start buying gear/synths.
