Solid Interface for the price

teateatime, 12.04.2018
I bought this interface because I wanted a lot of analog ins and outs, and it delivers on that front and an amazing price. I have several synths and fx, and I like having my audio interface / PC as the central hub from which to route things; I find it preferable to a patch bay or manually rerouting cables.

Pro's:
-> Lots of ins, lots of outs
-> Construction feels solid
-> Sufficient amplification on the headphone out
-> Sufficient amplification on the main outs
-> Drivers on Win10 work well (64 sample latency on big projects without problems)

Cons:
-> No digital outs, so if you want to expand in that direction you'd need a different solution
-> The inputs are pretty sensitive - recording synthesizers I have the input knobs turned completely down, and get a clear signal with little noise. This isn't a con per-se, but if you, like me, were planning on using the input volume to mix a bit during jams, think again.

Overall I'm very happy with my purchase; the competing interfaces are either more expensive, or lack certain features this one has. If you're in the market for an interface with a lot of IO this is a solid choice.

Tascam US-16x08

TeddyBeer, 15.11.2017
I bought this for drums recording and it does a great job. You have to pay way more money for a better interface with 16 inputs.
I'm a musician/mixing engineer and this interface helped me to work for the first time outside my home studio. I also use it live for tracks/Fx. You can send stereo tracks to the main mixer without the click.
Pros :
- 8 mic inputs. Enough for drums
- 8 line inputs. You can connect your favorite individual preamps to it and upgrade the sound
- 8 outputs. Great for sending tracks/stems to outboard gear while mixing and many other things.
- has all the standard things like Phantom power, 2xHi Z inputs, Asio driver, DSP with EQ and compressor for all 16 inputs.
- great for home studios

Cons :
- knob don't feel quite solid
- In my case when I record at 48k with my i5 laptop, sometimes (once per 60 min) the sampling rate resets to 44.1khz, the default rate. This comes also with sound errors like pops, clicks..etc.
- The sampling rate is set by the DAW (Reaper here) and not by the interface itself. And you have to set and reset it many times until the DSP receive the information.
