Solid interface
Veselin1, 22.02.2020
I'm using Tascam 208i interface for my home studio and for my rehearsals. It is solid with a full metal box. The workmanship is precise. You can set it up fast, easy and convenient. It's stable with no dropouts till now. There is a large rotary knob for monitor speakers level, which is extremely useful and much more convenient than adjusting levels through DAW or other software.
The Ultra HDDA preamps are high quality and very quiet, and their sound is ballanced and natural and have more depth than anything, I've heard below and at this price range. The built-in DSP processor makes the recording process absolutely enjoyable. You can record directly through built-in EQ, with the low cut especially usefull. The reverb is simple, but high quality one with very natural sound. The only thing I could not do ‘till now was to record directly with a reverb and not just use it as an aux effect.
And last, but not least - it can work like standalone mixer and preamp, which can be very handy.

Hammer
Volker aus D., 11.02.2021
Musste wegen der zwingenden Cubase Integration von Steinberg-Interfaces, mir ein zweites Interface zulegen. Das Tascam gefällt mir aber so gut, dass ich es als Haupt-Interface benutze

Pro:
-Mixer-Software übersichtlich
-DA-Wandler klingt transparenter als High-End-DA-Wandler
-Eingänge auf Vorderseite
-Leicht angeschrägte Front, besser zu bedienen
-Vorverstärker gut
-Wichtig: DSP-Mixer mit sehr gutem Hall. Dieses Feature haben selbst die teuren Interfaces nicht, bzw. andere Interfaces in gleicher Preisklasse und das ist gerade wichtig, um Latenzfrei und angenehm Konzertgitarre aufzunehmen.
-Treiber auf dem neusten Stand
-Phantomspeisung einzeln zuschaltbar. (wichtig für unterschiedliche Mikrofone)
-wer es benötigt, hat im DSP-Mixer Compressor und EQ für jeden Kanal
-kein Knacksen beim Einschalten, Ausschalten, Computer runterfahren

contra: keinen digitalen Ausgang, wäre das noch vorhanden, wäre es perfekt!

Insgesamt: zu gut für diesen Preis

GrosTamino, 01.07.2020
C'est mon premier achat d'interface audio. J'avoue que j'étais perdu dans les commentaires et la diversité des opinions.
Même les meilleures cartes et les plus cher étaient jugées mauvaises par certaines utilisateurs.
J'ai choisi cette interface malgré le manque de commentaires par confiance à la marque que je connais depuis longtemps.
Déjà en prenant dans les mains l'interface, on se rend compte que c'est du solide.
Même si l'électronique aujourd'hui est miniaturisée au possible, pourquoi ces boitiers plastiques qui pèsent 50 grammes chez plusieurs marques, alors que le matériel pourra servir pendant des heures, des années ?
Matériel donc très solide chez Tascam.
Le son me parait impeccable, je n'ai pas encore utilisé la console ou les effets, il est vrai que je suis intéressé par l'enregistrement audio et la connexion avec l'ordinateur pour travailler avec LogicPro.
Surprise très agréable, là où j'avais peur des problèmes de configuration, une fois le driver installé, le tour était joué, la machine immédiatement reconnue par mon MacBook Pro.
Autrement dit deux minutes d'installation, c'est tout.
J'avais peur aussi de problèmes de latence, j'en ai aucune.
J'avoue que je ne peux comparer avec une autre carte son vu que c'est ma première, mais après tout ce que j'ai lu sur les problèmes rencontrés souvent les cartes son, je me sens très tranquille et j'ai l'impression d'avoir fait un excellent choix !
Pour le prix on peut y aller les yeux fermés.
