Danbei's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Tascam US-122MKII
I bought this sound card to record guitar and vocals


The drivers are stable Windows XP. I switched to Windows 7 and it's a stampede, it is often weak.


No problem for intalation, the handling is easy


I used it for about 2 years. I went now to scarlett 18i6 who is superior.
The preamps are very limited, it should be used with micro that level too low output, I would say at least 13mV/Pa if there is too much wind.
The buttons can be a chip, they are people who run alone, y others who turn not alone ...
I do not like the buttons on the top, I would have preferred the group.

With the experience I will not repeat that choice, I will turn to another brand. If you are on windows 7 it is not worth it.

What has motivated my choice? Advice on Audiofanzine, 2 XLR ports, reputation of the brand, the price.

I possde a macbook pro 13 "(2010 version), and I intended to record guitar and vocals.


The drivers are very stable Mac is installed, plug and it's good (for against, do not forget to days drivers for Mac on the site, otherwise noise and not very strong) .dropoff window Basically I use Logic Pro and Ableton slightly. Under Logic, nikel, he perfectly recognizes "....
Latency seemed appropriate without being exceptional. (22.5 ms and 14.8 ms in Logic without the sound card, ie the core Audio)


The installation was quick and trouble t, while for the same config, the manual is small but sufficient. At the incompatibilits I the accuracy of all again, do not forget to put drivers 2.machin days.


I use it for 3 days, um, a suitable without making me jump up ... The knobs are not very sturdy, the sound seems a bit limited, I can be a little deaf but I 'like the sound up loud to fully realize certain passages.
And I'm not enough can be a connoisseur but have more latency with no sound card, I did not expect to, as this is my first sound card. Menfin short, j'diterai may be my opinion in some time after use in recording and in the long term. At least you have an opinion of someone making the mao for 4 years without sound card and keyboard, and a little skeptical about the quality of listening gain that seems to me more than minim, knowing that the purpose of rather as a sound card recording but good.

abelouis's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)"watch out with 64-bit"

Tascam US-122MKII
advised by a friend, I bought it with my eyes a bit closed as I was recommended it. 
many who have Windows 7 64-bit or 64 bit vista have problems with this card.
I have problems with crackling, this is due at 64 bits.


just for windows 7 64 bit there is indeed a driver but causing crackling or creaking, I'm not alone in this case. I use fl studio but even those who have the same config as me and using another software computer music are in the same issue.


Installation is no problem, the driver + firmware.


I use it for some time now - for 1 month. So almost new.
otherwise the sound is good but there's always these parasite problems and apparently no new updates announced, tascam has a customer service that is very difficult to reach, they say they will call bakc and then they never do.
