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.

Perfect for recording drums
14.01.2017
I used this product for recording Drums and sometimes live band performances.
Its design was simple and it suited the use in different locations. It can be placed on a desk but also came with mount ears for putting in a rack unit which was a nice feature that allowed me that option in the future.
The face of the unit where the inputs are tilted up towards the user which made it nice to plug in as the cables weren't flush with the surface beneath.
The gain dials had a nice smoothness to them which I found useful for small adjustments.
The headphone output is in a good location on the device.
I have never had any issue with connecting to my laptop.
The fact that its USB allows me to use on different platforms.
It would be an improvement if the inputs were both xlr and instrument line like other interfaces but there is enough inputs.
The phantom option allows you to just assign phantom to certain groups which is great.
All in all a great piece of equipment for the price

For the price range it is amazing.
xmi_std, 01.07.2020
I've had mine probably a few years now (late review), and its stood up to abuse from moving around plus it sounds really great.

I mostly use mine for tracking a few synths at a time into Cubase or Ableton Live. Windows 10 here. It worked on Win7 just fine.

You can download all the latest drivers and software from Tascams website. NOTE that it says in the manual to set your Windows power management mode to "high performance", this is in fact essential, you'll suffer audio dropouts on the faster machines if you don't do this.

Sound: well it's as clean as any other interface and i have had Roland and RME interfaces over the years. No problem there.

I can only recommend this interface if you need 16 inputs via USB. 8x pres and 8x line inputs for that price. Amazing!

I still love it
Radiotrib, 18.04.2020
Has done sterling work in both studio and on-the-road recording sessinos, It's a fundamental part of my 16 channel mixing desk and allows me to record a set raw, from the desk, during the performance directly into Presonus Studio 1 Artist whilst at the same time mixing down the drums into a single stereo input to the live desk ... I love it
