Great Unit, Incredible Value
by Jread from South JerseyI've used many other interfaces that I either owned or used/rented. This is by far the absolute best interface for the price. The preamps on tracks 1-8 are very clear and clean. The limiter lights are... read more [+] very helpful and responsive. The switches(power, phantom, gain) all feel very robust and I trust that I won't accidentally push one into the unit or break them. The unit is solidly built, I suggest a rack case for travel. Latency is incredibly low right out of the box, I did next to no fiddling and was satisfied. Output could possibly be expanded, but If you know what you're doing the output options are flexible enough. close [-]

Great little box
by Robert Martin from Warner Robins, GA USAI've only had it for a couple of months and I'm only using it to record stereo from the TV sound board at my church... for now... So far it has been flawless. I'm using it with Soundforge 10 and had ... read more [+]no issues mapping the line inputs 9 & 10 (coming from a compressor) to channels 1 & 2. I use Outputs 1 & 2 as a return feed to the sound board. The recorded sound is almost indistinguishable from the live sound. Clean, clear, no funky coloration. Thinking of getting another one for home use with my quartet. At $300 this thing is a steal of a deal. close [-]

Well built and easy to use.
by Jess from North CarolinaThe TASCAM US-1800 works as advertized and feels solid. The switches and knobs don't make you feel like you have to be careful with the gear. It's ready to go - simple as that.

Pots ar... read more [+]e predictable. No fussing to find a level. Everything is clearly labeled and there are no mysteries.
It came with free CUBASE DAW software. CUBASE is NOT intuitive at all and has a steep learning curve. It was free so this is not a complaint, just a heads up to anyone making a gear purchase based on getting a two-fer with the software. Starting from zero with CUBASE is like playing a Mario game with hidden features that aren't clearly detailed in any of the tutorials. I'm staying with Adobe Audition.
The TASCAM, though, is a solid piece of gear and the special pricing from Sweetwater made it a no-brainer. If you're looking for something of similar specs, look no further. close [-]
by Josh fromI purchased this interface on a whim as the Firewire one I wanted sold out. I was a bit skeptical at first of a USB interface, but this purchase has paid off hands down.

It has a total of 1... read more [+]0 preamps (8 XLR, 2 1/4") plus 4 line inputs on the back. With two rack mounted preamps, I have a total of 14 inputs, perfect for my studio. The knobs feel a little cheap, and they're hard to see under low light, but for $250, I cant complain
Contrary to popular belief, this interface works great on mac. I connected it to a brand new Macbook Pro using Reaper as a DAW, and everything worked fine. close [-]
Excellent for the money
by fromGreat interface, everything works like it should. My only complaint is how confusing it is to initially set it up with recording software. I had to look online to figure it out.
