Tascam US-16x08 · Audio interface

The US-16x08 provides your computer with 16 good-sounding microphone and line inputs as well as additional features for larger sessions. Its eight Ultra-HDDA microphone preamplifiers are characterised by extremely low input noise and a gain range of 56 dB. Of the additional eight balanced line inputs, two are switchable for the direct connection of a guitar or a bass. Eight balanced line outputs are used to output signals from the computer or mixed internally, two of which have level controls on the front panel.

The US-16x08 contains a DSP mixer, which allows digital mixing with low latency. 4-band sound control and compressor in each channel provide a good sound monitor mix. In addition to the use as an interface, there is also the possibility to operate the device as an independent microphone preamplifier. Drivers for Windows and Mac OS are available, and thanks to USB Audio Compliance 2.0 the interface can be used even with iOS devices such as the Apple iPad. MIDI input and output are also available.

Thanks to its chamfered housing, the US 16x08 can be operated at home on a table or can be installed in a rack with the supplied angle. In both cases, it offers enough inputs and outputs for almost every conceivable shooting situation.

Incredible feature set for the price

User on 21.04.2016

This unit should be the best selling audio interface on the planet. It has 16 simultaneous inputs over USB, 8 nice clean preamps and a sensibly laid out software interface which even has some fairly decent eq and compression features. All for just over £200!!!

I work for a college and needed a good multi-input unit with USB, at a reasonable price. I've found this such a joy to work with that I bought myself a unit for my home studio. I'm using it with a Mac, with both Logic Pro and Ableton and I'll eventually install it on the college's PCs. I've had no issues yet and it feels solid.

I've previously owned an RME Fireface, which was amazing but 5 or 6 times the price and the routing software, while versatile, is a bit of a nightmare. I also had a TC electronics Konnekt 48, again a great unit but this Tascam has double the live inputs of both, at a fraction of the cost.

I don't often (if ever) write online reviews but I felt compelled simply because the feature set for the money is astonishing.
