Annonces Tascam US-122MKII
This interface was pretty easy to set up, the preamps are quiet and have headroom. On Mac operating systems is where I ran into some issues with it. I had a fast processor and I was running a newer version of Macs OS X but for some reason it would not recognize it all of the time. It only would about 50 percent of the time and I would have to unplug and plug it back......
This interface was pretty easy to set up, the preamps are quiet and have headroom. On Mac operating systems is where I ran into some issues with it. I had a fast processor and I was running a newer version of Macs OS X but for some reason it would not recognize it all of the time. It only would about 50 percent of the time and I would have to unplug and plug it back in for it to recognize it.
On my Windows computer running XP 32 bit service pack 3 it ran smoothly every single time. I have even run it on a Vista system before and it never had any issues.
This interface gets its power from the computers USB port and it is very lightweight making it portable. There are MIDI ins and MIDI out 5 min connections. The sampling rat is 44.1 48 kHz, 88.2 and 96kHz. This interface did come with a manual (book) and I also had a PDF manual for it as well but never really needed to look at it. If you are a Mac user, I would not recommend this interface because there are some compatibly issues that can arise. Windows users will love this interface and the preamps in any software they choose to use it with.
This interface was pretty solid and could withstand a lot of use, the side panels where made of aluminum and it never let me down. I recommend it (to Windows users).
I didn’t find anything wrong or negative to say about the Tascam US 122. I have been using Tascams products for years now and they always hold up and never cause me any problems. Between them and Behringer, those are the two best small interface providers in my book.
No manual was needed everything is labeled and very easy to understand.
You will love using the Tascam US 122, its easy to use, and small. It will give you great recording quality as long as you have a good mic or at least a decent mic to plug into it. Invest more of your money into a good mic and good cables and get the Tascam US 122 used for around 45 dollars and you will have a good setup.
The drivers for this are very stable, and the latency is very low from when I used it. I have heard some strange things about them being incredibly unreliable on 64 bit systems though, so if that is true, and this is a universal complaint, so maybe it is, then it would mean that this product is practically unusable, since most people have already moved to 64 bit systems. Buyer beware, and test this out before you commit to this unit.
Personally, I have found that the drivers on the computer I tried this on to be very simple and run with incredibly low latency. The preamps on this machine were also very pristine, oddly enough. I found them to be entirely sufficient, especially for the use that I know this machine will see. So I am not worried by this. Again though, the drivers seem to not work on 64 bit machines, so be careful!
I love this interface for what it is. I has a couple of silly limitations like the lack of separate knobs for headphones and line outputs, and the strange driver issue on 64 bit systems. The truth is, while this is a good unit in its own right, I cannot really recommend it to anyone for these annoying problems!
Sorry I don't have an in depth review I just wanted to warn people to stay away from this. Nobody knows how to fix this and TASCAM will not return my emails.
