Good with restriction

07.03.2016
First of all, one should say that the hardware Tascam is as usual solid and valuable. Also on the sound there is nothing to complain about. The routing works with the download software easily and beautiful "analog" from the user interface.
However, one should definitely look at the manual on the Tascam website: there stands with which Windows version the interface under USB 3 conditions works and with which not. Surprisingly, this is only the case with Windows 10.
So far so good ... or not. The next surprise is waiting for you to install everything and to use the right operating system. Actually everything at first sight works quite satisfactorily until ... until you realize that the latencies seem to be somehow terribly high. I have an i7 with Win10 and 16 GB of RAM and use Cubase Pro8. The input latency is about 16 ms at 96KHz and a buffer of 256, the output latency at more than 14 ms! USB 3? I would not have expected this. A rummaging in the relevant forums revealed very quickly that here the probably the included driver is the culprit. It is generally recommended to switch to ASIO4all drivers. They are freely available on the net. Said done and behold, with the same settings, I now have input and output latency of 3 ms. This is an announcement ... especially at Tascam: Dear folks, you still have homework to do. And in the context you get the safe USB 3 drivers for Windows 7.

PS Meanwhile runs the good piece with me also under Windows 7 with the ASIO4all drivers. Here, however, actually with larger latencies of about 5 ms at the input and about 10 ms at the output, which, in spite of USB 3 connection and cable, compared to the Win 10 values ??actually on USB 2 tempo. Since I have no comparison with other USB interfaces, I would be interested in how these values ??compare with others.

Tr s good card for demanding home studio

Pumpkin_head, 12.07.2017
Falling by chance on this sound card while looking on the site, because (but I would say more grace) a stock shortage of the focusrite scarlett, which I expected to take me first (the one with 8 entries xlr) I ended up taking the step by buying this TASCAM. There were not a lot of reviews on the internet (apart from a very complimentary on audiofanzine), which worried me a bit, especially as most of the English reviews on other sites mentioned drivers a bit capricious and little set up to date.
Well I had no problem of this kind, the installation on windows seven is easy, the drivers to download on the site are recognized nickel under cubase. The only worry I had was when installing on a laptop, but it turned out that it did not have the latest windows updates, which prevented the recognition of the drivers nothing To do with TASCAM so.
Rackable, the TASCAM also has feet to put it directly on a desk, very practical this function is perfect for a home studio owner. I take it with me in a (large) backpack with a laptop when I need to record battery parts in a local.
The 8 xlr entries can be increased to 20 via optical or adat connection but I have not yet explored this possibility at my 8 input level this is already enough. At the level of the outputs is the party, since we find 10 out format jack, so large enough to output the sound on several pairs of speakers of different quality, and make headphone returns for your musicians via the DSP.
On this point I took a little time to understand the logic of their operation, the internal software being a bit austere at first and the manual not ultra explicit. That said once we understand that to NOT have any latency for the returns it is necessary to go live by this software and not by the functions return of the DAW everything becomes simpler (hey yes I am beginner and c ' Is my first card). In addition to the non-latency returns we can also apply real-time reverb, eq and compression but I have not yet used this possibility, which is more reserved to use live mix.
Because yes, in addition to being a good card, the US 20 * 20 can act as a mixer for concert!
What more can be said ?
The volume knobs are of good quality, I personally would have preferred them to be arranged horizontally rather than vertically (understand 1 2 3 4 then 5 6 7 8, rather than 1 3 5 7 then 2 4 6 8 Facade to understand what I mean) but it is not very serious.
They each have their led to signal saturation; The xlr inputs can be switched to phantom power but only in groups of 4, it would have been better to do this for each input separately. This being said it is not annoying because the "classic" microphones not needing power (sm57 beta 52A etc) work very well with power supply (it is necessary to just read the doc of your microphones to know if yes or Not a food will grill them or not).
In the end I am very happy with my purchase, I used the card to record an Ep 5 titles guitar bass drum + vocals. I think this card will allow a good scalability as I move forward in my home studio, especially for DSP and USB compatibility 3.
In summary, a very good card with many possibilities (the number of entries, exits, management of returns without latency) for a price more than reasonable when we want to start seriously.
