Tascam has created yet another fantastic product for anyone recording anything. It features Tascam's own Ultra-HDDA preamp, compatible with any mic, from dynamic to ribbon. It has low noise and even lower distortion. The latency on this interface is almost nonexistent. You can even turn the first two channels into guitar inputs, no need for a preamp at all. With all of the inputs on this bad boy, you could potentially record a full band with only the one interface. It has 48v phantom power for up to 8 condenser mics. It can even be a stand alone preamp if you so choose. The 16x08 comes with a standard USB connection for your computer.
