Awesome Set up

By Nate Cordova

from Nashua, NH

Comments about TASCAM US144 Interface and 990/991 Mic Pack Bundle:

This is everything you really need to begin recording. I received this package as a gift from my uncle and it is such a good set up. The mics are great and get the job done. I use the 990 (large dia) for vocals and the 991 (small dia) for my guitar when playing live at church. I know I really should use a SM58 or something for the vocals, but it is crystal clear over that sound system. The Tascam interface I had some trouble with when using it with Sonar X1 Essentials, but I just had to install the latest driver (2.02) and it works great! The interface also comes with Cubase 5LE, which is a great software, but I think it is the trial version (I already purchased Sonar X1 Essentials prior to getting the interface because I am more familiar with that software). I haven't experienced any drop-outs yet, but from what I have heard from others, who are very experienced in recording, that you may with this set-up. This is most likely to be expected because of the awesome price! The two cables are a plus too. All that's really needed beyond this is a pop filter, 991 shock mount, a couple of mic stands, headphones, and some foam and you are good to go!

Good for the price but...

By V. Shiff

from Redmond, WA

Comments about TASCAM US144 Interface and 990/991 Mic Pack Bundle:

This bundle would be hard to beat but at this price there are limits. For one thing the mics are pretty good but do color the sound. And the USB interface, while it works well has sometimes quirky drivers. Be sure to download the latest from versions from the Tascam website. And one other thing, the mic preamps in the interface are about 10X as noisy as the ones in my Lexicon Lambda which has similar functionality. This means the kit is good for recording loud sounds, quiet stuff, not so much.

Good Beginning Product

By Talabit

from Ann Arbor, MI

Comments about TASCAM US144 Interface and 990/991 Mic Pack Bundle:

There are alot of reviews out there on this product. Do not be fooled this is a wonderful product. The price is $200, which to start to have a fully function studio is awesome. Also no one seems to mention it has a midi interface as well so you can buy a little midi controller and control all synth and drum sounds. When I purchased it, it was being bundled with Cubase Le 4 which is also a very capable program. The sound quality is good enough to do any demo stuff and if you really took your time you could most likeky get away with a product good enough to package and sell. I have been doing recording for 10 years and went to recording school for training so my evaluation is truthful. When you get ready to step up and do more tracking look at Mark of the Unicorn stuff, it is more expensive, at $1000 but it is great 8 channel recording.

Awesome Startup Set.

By Ian Lilkendey

from Jacksonville, FL

Comments about TASCAM US144 Interface and 990/991 Mic Pack Bundle:

I have a love hate relationship with Tascam. I love this interface, but sometimes the drivers can give you issues. Other than that this package is awesome for the price. Very low latency when recording (you may have to tweak the settings a bit). The mics are great too. I've been very happy with this setup for quite some time. Perfect for anyone who wants to start recording.

Recording package

By Neil

from NY

Comments about TASCAM US144 Interface and 990/991 Mic Pack Bundle:

Well for the price the can't be a better product. When I plug in my electric guitar the audio quality is terrible. Both mics are great though, acoustic recordings are great.

Fantastic equipment

By Texasozzie

from Austin, Tx

Comments about TASCAM US144 Interface and 990/991 Mic Pack Bundle:

This interface + microphones is a fantastic deal. Regular shipping was on-time. Everything works well...takes a bit of time to install and tweak everything on the computer to get it working but it's all good. The mics are high quality, I'm very happy with them and the TASCAM box itself works as advertised -- just read about all those features! I'm just an regular home-body kind of musician, just mess around with various instruments - mostly keys...but this is the final piece of the puzzle. I can just use my computer as the recorder - it's easy and it works well with Audacity too. Bottome line - you can't go wrong with this package deal.
