      Tascam US-1800 USB 2.0 Audio/Midi Interface (H65527)

A versatile 16-in/4-out, 24-bit/96kHz interface bundled with Cubase LE5.

The US-1800 audio interface from Tascam offers a high amount of inputs for a minimum amount of cash. The US-1800 features up to 16 inputs and four outputs that are transmitted to your Mac or Windows computer over a high-speed USB 2.0 connection. There are a total of eight XLR microphone inputs with phantom power and 60 decibels of clean gain, as well as six balanced line inputs, stereo digital I/O and MIDI in/out. Also Included with the US-1800 is Cubase LE5 workstation software from Steinberg. This 48-track audio workstation includes must-have features like automation, plug-ins, mixing, editing and MIDI tracks.

US-1800 rackmountable 16x4 channel interface
TASCAM's US-1800 packs 8 mic, 6 line and two digital inputs into a single rack unit, more inputs than most interfaces in its price class. The 16-in / 4-out interface works with nearly any recording software from budget to pro, including Logic Pro, Live, Nuendo, Digital Performer, Fruity Loops, and Pro Tools. It’s compact enough to carry to live gigs, or mount it in a rack in your studio.

In addition to the digital input and output, a MIDI input and output is included for interfacing with synths and drum machines.

Full-featured inputs
Eight microphone inputs are provided right on the front panel for easy access. Phantom power is available for condenser microphones, and plenty of gain is available for recording virtually any source. Also on the front panel is a pair of 1/4" inputs. Each of these can be switched to instrument level for direct recording of your guitar or bass.

A direct monitor path is available during recording to prevent the delays that can occur when recording to computer. This allows the musician to hear the input directly to the output without any delay so that timing isn't distracted by echos.
A total of six balanced line inputs can be attached using the front and rear panel jacks. A set of balanced line outputs are provided to connect to monitors, and a S/PDIF digital input and output is provided for use with high-end synths and processing gear. A stereo 1/4" headphone jack is also provided for monitoring.

Cubase LE5 Included
Included with the US-1800 is a copy of Cubase LE5, a 48-track workstation application with the features to create polished productions. VST plug-in support, automated mixing and MIDI tracks allow you to craft large productions without adding any other software.

If you want to use your own software, the US-1800 supports most Mac and Windows software such as Logic Pro, Live, Nuendo, Digital Performer, Fruity Loops, and Pro Tools.

  • It's great except one major problem...

    As reviewed by Cory Hensarling on 4/3/2013

    I bought this thing because it looked like it was some insane equipment for some minor coin. And for the most part it is. You have enough room to plug in two guitars, a mic, an entire drumset, a keyboard, and a midi controller all at the same time. Trouble is that while it has all of this capability, the quality of the recording is far lower than I was expecting. I have yet to be able to record anything without developing popping and crackling. My buddy brought his interface over to test, and it worked great. I am slightly disappointed, as now it takes some serious time in FL to clean the recordings up.

  • Perfect starter interface!

    As reviewed by BRET LAMBERT on 4/5/2012

    I bought this about 3 months ago, and man it's more than I could ask for for only $300! The 8 mic inputs are really useful, and the preamps have pretty nice headroom. You can turn the gain up high without worrying about any hiss or buzz. I record drums with this all the time and I haven't had any issues at all with it. I highly suggest this to anyone who is recording drums and doesn't want to spend tons of money on an interface.

  • Awesome!

    As reviewed by Justin on 8/29/2011

    I wanted a reliable interface for my computer recording. I used Alesis and got ok results, but I needed more mic inputs for drums, this does the trick. However there is not as much gain on each input as I'd like , and a bit of noise when phantom power is turned on or off. Other than those two negatives there is a very clean signal from mic to DAW software. I know some pro engineers that use this, they suggested I get it and I am very happy I did. I highly recommend this!
