This TASCAM TrackPack SE USB Bundle comes with the TASCAM US-122mkII USB 2.0 computer interface, Cubase LE5 music production software, TASCAM TM-78 large condenser microphone with stand, and TASCAM HP-VT1 closed-ear headphones. The package contains the key recording equipment you need to turn your Mac or PC into a total production system for music, podcasting, or production.
The US-122mkII recording interface is your computer's gateway into the audio world. More than just a soundcard, it has a pair of pro-quality microphone preamps for connecting any type of microphone. High-quality condenser microphones ” like the included TASCAM TM-78 ” need power to operate, which is achieved with the phantom power switch. Another switch turns on the line input, for recording powered devices like keyboards, drum machines, and guitar amp modelers. You can even plug your guitar or bass directly into the TASCAM US-122mkII. With two inputs, you can record two microphones or sources at once.
The TASCAM US-122 mkII audio interface connects to Mac or Windows computers using USB 2.0, and the unit is powered over the USB cable. Zero-latency monitoring is available for recording without the delay going to a computer and back. MIDI input and output jacks allow connection of synths and drum machines. Connect the US-122mkII to monitors through the line output or use the included TASCAM HP-VT1 closed-ear headphones with the front-mounted stereo 1/4" jack. The US-122mkII makes a perfect portable recording interface with metal components and solid construction built for the road.
This gear pack also comes with Cubase LE5 software, a powerful music workstation combining audio and MIDI recording, editing and mixing in a single, integrated software package. This music production software gives you plenty of tracks - up to 48 - to put together a song arrangement, one track at a time. It's simple to use, and you can edit your tracks to fix timing and mistakes to put together a perfect take. Cubase LE5 has a professional-quality mixer built in with plug-in effects like reverbs, compressors, distortion, auto-pan, and more. You can add more VST plug-ins later and there are more free and commercial VST plug-ins than any other format. Cubase LE5 supplies everything you need to record, edit and produce your music, turning it into a polished, professional CD.

I like the Tascam recording system. The engineers thought like musicians when they designed this easy-to-use but sophisticated hardware and software.
The mic, the software and the interface are more sophisticated and powerful than rooms full of equipment I used when I was in the "business."
Everything works like a dream. The mic was worth the price of the entire system.
I could have spent multiples more for the same outcome.
There have been similar reviews on cubase with very negative criticisms about installation and usage problems, I did not have that experience. Installation took 20 minutes or so and I was up and recording within an hour WITHOUT any sort of instruction manual. I am not a seasoned veteran with recording background, this is my first experience with recording software and not only was it simple, it is so fun. I have so much faith in this software that my old 4 track went up on ebay. If you are contemplating this purchase dont wait another minute!
Big bang for your buck, software alone can cost the price of this package WITHOUT all the extra goodies. You get the software, headphones, computer interface AND a killer tascam condenser mic.
good quality all around. Interface is built with solid construction as is the microphone. Headphones feel a bit cheap, but they are sort of an extra anyways, they do what they are supposed to.
Again, great bang for the buck...you couldnt find a better deal if you tried.
I've cut a few spots with this already and no one's told me they don't sound good (I belong to a group where we swap around voice work all over the country.)
I'm not a musician, but I can tell you as a radio guy I'm happy with this, other than the software,which I can't really speak to.....but I never planned to use that anyway.
Installation is fairly easy. The docs for the US122 are concise and easy to understand but could stand to be updated for Win that's not a big deal though. The CubaseLE software is basically useless for what I bought this package for. I'm using it with Adobe Audition, which required a minor tweak to the configuration but that was no big thing. I'm doing radio production with this, and I'm happy with it. The mic is a bit darker sounding than I'd like but still quite servicable. And the US122 sounds good to me.
I could not find a -1 so i rate it a 1.....I was looking for mic.. And a sales rep. said hay we got this setup . Its a full studio for 199.00. I was like hmmm as I scratched my chin for a min..Then I told him I have the set up I am just looking for a good studio mic..He told me that I would get a better sound it I got the package deal.. So me I'm a fool and said sure... I got the box everything came in home..`It took me about 5 hour to find out the software was not valid and that the auto/interface driver was not working. so I went on line and searches for the driver.Guess what I never found it.. so that made me very happy... The mic. works great great just what I was looking for. But now i am stuck with a cd that has software i cant use and a auto/inter face I cant use.
