All You Need for Studio Quality Recordings

Comments about TASCAM FW-1082 10-Channel FireWire Audio/MIDI Interface:

I've been recording for over 20 years. From reel to reel to today's digital DAW's, The FW-1082 is a great little controller. I'm hooked up to an older Mac G4 with dual video monitors, max memory, and lots of hard disk space. The Cubase LE bundled with it has more than enough guts whether you're a one person multi-layering musician or a full band. Great pre-amps, lots of options, and enough hands-on interface to let you accomplish virtually anything you want without a recording engineering degree. Plus plenty of plug-ins out on the web for Cubase to let you replace all those old rack components. If 8 isn't enough, get the FW-1884 and add 8 faders at a time. But for me, this controller does it all and helps me sound professional.
