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!

Great value

The Tascam US-1800 is a USB 2.0 (not bus powered) soundcard with a total of 16 input channels and 4 output channels. Most of the inputs are on the front of this 1HU unit: 8 XLR Mic inputs with 48 V phantom power that can be sent independently to mics 1-4 and 5-8 and two trs line/instrument inputs. All the inputs on the front have gain knobs, but the only level indication is a clip light beside each gain knob. Apart from these inputs the front panel also houses Monitor and Phones level knobs, a 6,35 mm headphone out and an input/computer mix blend.
On the back side of the unit are 4 additional line inputs, which are fixed gain (switchable between -10/+4 dB only), and digital spdif in and out. The outputs are 4 plus L/R Monitor, all balanced trs. There is also midi in and out.
This soundcard is simple and inexpensive. The mic preamps are ok, but do not expect pro quality. There is no ADAT in or out. However, if you need 8 mic preamps and additional line inputs on a tight budget the tascam US-1800 delivers!

Really nice made of the product. First time connected, gave me driver errors so i needed to figure it out.. But now it worcs perfectly. Preams are not very good.. On max gain makes noise on each channel differently, thats not very good thing. Despite those problems everything is not bad. For that price it's best choice.
