«  20 € per channel »

Published on 11/09/13 at 18:33
16 entries on USB to get my battery and my bass on a UX32A Asus ultrabook with SSD 256GB Samsung 830 Pro, 6GB RAM, i5 and 64-bit Win7 with that USB 3.0 jacks and it works directly on the first try.

I liked having control LEDs per channel even if their level is not very accurate, I recommend relying on the DAW. As well the 48v pairs of channels.

UTILIZATION

For the amount of time I was able to test, it proved stable, even in plug and play. I'm waiting to receive a dozen microphones to test the battery. No worries with the latency as it's been low, thus far.

GETTING STARTED

I downloaded the latest driver (2010), installed and I immediately started recording, it's easy. The control panel including the latency is very simple. &nbsp;We didn't choose highly technical values, just a low to high latency.

OVERALL OPINION

I'll come back to update my review after testing the battery with the mics, but here's what I think so far:&nbsp;

I received only yesterday, but for now I am extremely happy. The depth of the rack was surprising, I imagined it would be shorter but anyway. The casing looks solid and well finished with aluminum facade, the knobs may be a little soft but I've seen worse. The LEDs are directional, I thought I had a power concern seeing nothing turn the power on, in fact the power LED was well lit, but just not visible from my position.

With my bass sound of instruments entry is slightly less warm than on the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 that I also have but everything seems clean, on the other hand I am not obliged to take my bass out with the US2000, unlike the Focusrite.

The headphone output is much more powerful than the 2i2, since logic is powered on US2000 sector and not by USB, perfect for a drummer: D

I bought the Tascam US-2000 for 315 € (about $420) in a promotional offer with the biggest mail order trading in the U.S. and delivered in 5 days by DHL, it's less than 20 € per channel with a more than decent quality (I would say, compared to the 2i2).

A dozen microphones will complement my mini studio made in China, complete with 4 basic channels preamp Audio SM 12 microphones to work with all the microphones which are also made in China, mainly for fun, and I can save 11 or 12 tracks battery for less than € 1,000 all inclusive (except the computer and the battery well understood). Back when I was a studio sound engineer, the same cost thing would cost between 100 to 200 times more. &nbsp;I mean just my 24 tracks (one of the cheapest in 2 ") cost € 40,000 at the time not to mention the 16 minutes of tape for € 200 and its maintenance and calibration every month. &nbsp;Time's have changed for the better! &nbsp;:D

They say you can use both simultaneously with US2000 Asio4all V2 drivers, it would 32 entries DTD for 630 € .... what could be better?
