Tascam US-144
I use Apple computers (PowerMac G4 Mirror mono 1.25Go, 1.5GB RAM, iBook 1GB, Logic Pro 7, Garage Band).
OSX Tiger 10.4.8, latest drivers.
I already have the Tascam US-122 which I'm very happy, I thought the new version (US-144) with USB2 would be even better.

UTILIZATION

No particular problem for installation.

GETTING STARTED

Drivers for OSX are devastating, often picks up the card in use, sometimes it is not recognized at boot.
Despite the support of the USB2, the software latency is more important than the Tascam US-122 in USB1 yet.
US-144 card does not work with buffer sizes small yet supported by the previous model.
In short, I think the driver for OSX is responsible for this poor performance.
I have not tried the card on PC.
It's strange, once again the previous model (US-122) works perfectly, I had advised a large number of people who are very satisfied.
on the other hand, after testing the US-114 on several configurations Mac (G4, iBook, iMac Intel), I confirm that the card has shortcomings and that the stability of the driver is not at the rendezvous.

OVERALL OPINION

On paper the features of this card and its value is excellent, shame on OSX, performance is not up to the previous model. Hopefully the updated driver will solve these problems.

Tascam US-144
It is mainly the price, I admit not having much canvassed before buying this sound card.

I would put 8 because despite the flaws I will mention afterwards it is very convenient to live the example

UTILIZATION

The installation is rather Bisara, in fact I do not understand exactly why we must reconnect the USB disconnect 2 times this sound card. now I signal another problem:

A few days ago, my sound card has to start messing around, I had cut one to two seconds every 2 minutes. Unbearable to watch a movie for example, or to make music. I think it would be a virus so I reformatted 1 hour and a half ago. when reinstalling the drivers, after connecting, reconnecting disconnected my card, my computer gives me a warm boot very worrying.

Edit: I finally understood the problem, it is a conflict between a bad drivers I installed for the onboard sound card of my motherboard, it says it's more like violent conflict.

GETTING STARTED

The only application that is used relatively successfully for this sound card is Cubase.
synchronization noon is lamentable and shifts the preamps are pretty bad.

something else I have two friends who have made the same purchase as I do. we all had a hardware problem with the sound card began with a preamp that has dropped on the XLR mic input right. I have a problem with the LED light level as soon as it produces a click. ie as soon as I exceed a level with the entry when recording I have a clip. I would do no such purchase

OVERALL OPINION

+ Very convenient to adjust
+ Not too expensive

-Quality materials
I have this sound card for 6 months and this is the first external sound card I buy. I, however, access to well equipped studios and know fairly well what kind of product. so I think my opinion is reliable. I would do not elect

Tascam US-144
This little jewels that I do not use it again at fair value, provides a lot of things ... for a price much thinner (sound card + USB Cubase LE (complete) + USB cable (and yes it's wrong tjs self) + GigaStudio)!

Level recording quality and latency, and tt ca, I have wanted me dir jy know anything but I have no complaints => no désagremment (now up to you to set up a configuration that holds up well)

UTILIZATION

At installation although it took plug and unplug and reconnect the card s install in 3 minutes flat and I knew nothing in cubase but within 30 minutes after installing I register my first compo!

GETTING STARTED

It is ideal for those who like me little musician garage and wants to try to put some songs fit for a reasonable price without having any other investment required to do ... (which in my case a multi- ca is not too bad (battery)!

In fact, you can record 4 tracks simultaneously (small hic! Qd mm 4 tracks yes, but two guitar mic and 2 for example, unfortunately, not two guitars, a bass and a microphone finally just what that track is a multi tjs average quibble ...)
This little snag is not a given that eventually all good record registers track by track ... (of course remains the problem of the battery m'enfin ..)
)

OVERALL OPINION

So here in all I'm really happy with my new acquisition.

Tascam US-144
I have a Tascam US 144 for 3 months, I use it to retrieve only the sounds of Cubase SX Giga (in numrique). And yes, I have two PCs, there is one that manages Cubase and the other works as a sampler (a bit expensive as a sampler). Cubase SX works with ASIO and GSIF driver with Giga! It would be too easy if it worked ...
I am not happy at all because the US-144 Giga outside, it is (my knowledge) impossible to grate the inputs and outputs with the control panel of this damn card. In short, she has seen from the outside a lot of strength, but the Interiura the software does not follow at all! I / O are modifiable with Gigal!
So no question of a small recording the SPDIF input on SoundForge7 example!
