Horrible latency issues. I have 3 ghz Win 7 64 bit / 8GB RAm and the latest Tascam drivers and this unit is still barely usable at the highest latency setting. I have to disable my virus scanner and every service and process that I can and disconnect every other USB device to stop the signal from breaking up. I doubt the MKII is any better in this respect. Chalk this one down to experience. You get what you pay for.
It worked ok on XP but forget about Vista or 7. It hangs the pc if you try to shut down without unplugging it. Also,latency on the unit was terrible. Then I put in Windows 7 and it would never install right, always saying that it was incompatible. Then it would try an XP emulation and run. The problems thereafter were numerous. It still had the hang on shutdown unless you disconnected first and then biggie which gives it the "Sucks Badly" award, THE BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH. Random complete crashes no matter what software I use. Cakewalk, N-Track and Cubase all crash eventually when using softsynths into the blue screen. Tascam does not offer support for this product for Vista or 7. Stay away.
I've owned the Tascam US 122 for about three years. I've used it for both remote and studio recording, on laptops and desktops. There are two things I particularly like about it. First, it provides an absolutely clean signal from both condenser and dynamic mikes. Second, it gives me a much stronger signal than just plugging a mike into the sound card. This is a tool that every voice-over artist who records from home should consider.
I have been using this product for several years with my home studio recording software. It has neer given me any problems. I plan on buying one for my son to use at college. Great price, and dependable service
I bought a tascam us-122 a year ago and its been causing nothing but trouble. Whenever i record a song it makes the vocals skip. i tried changing the buffer size but that doesnt work. I even bought more ram. I have a friend who has the same problem and i wouldnt buy anything else from tascam because of this defective product.
