- What technical specifications motivated your choice?

the base I needed a sound card for laptop, and then as my mixer was not much I / O, I thought that the tascam is a good way to evolve my System.
- For what purpose?

Primarily for the recording / mastering evening (tekno and / or instruments).
But I also used to compose some tracks the guitar (rift / bass / solo ...)
- What is your config (motherboard / CPU / Ram / Hard ,...)?

Asus laptop processor intel pentium dual cpu T2370 1.73 MHz / 2GB RAM / 250GB HDD

- Which instruments do you use or Systmes the connection and how?

I only use symtriss jack.

1) analog

Between:
Online 11/12: signal from turntable-> table-> limiting
micro: in a
Guitar: in 9

Outputs:
1 / 2: Towards an active filter
3 / 4: 2 to crossover
2) Numrique / Midi

MIDI IN: KORG machines (the red and green)
want all the tracks in cubase (recording, samples ...)
with Fruity Loops in parrallle from time to time (patern, samples, ...)

UTILIZATION

- Installation is it without problem? Have you experienced any incompatibility?
- The configuration gnrale is easy? The manual is clear and sufficient?

Problem-free installation, Manual explicit standard configuration.

GETTING STARTED

- The drivers are stable? - Are they often put day?

the drivers seem stable search of updating regularly.
- What software do you use most often?

SoundForge, FruityLoops, Cubase.
What you get lag?

I do not really know but configured in "lowest latency" and pc: ok


- How many tracks you get record / playback simultanment?

I did try that six tracks read / write: no problem.

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it? How do you report qualitprix?

purchased in September 2008 priced at 350 euro including postage with a dynamic mic available (not top quality but the microphone available ...)
- What is the particular feature you like best and least?

the most: simplicity, good dynamic knew her, the quality Tascam.

Cons:
* The output monitor (master3) can not be commanded via cubase,
* Not be able to route a path to the master simultanment 2 (must be doubled and assign inputs input1-> input1 = input2 master1-> master2)
- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...

no problem, since I show my circle, they all want one!
