Included Software
The following is a five-minute demo of the TASCAM
US-1800 that shows the top selling features of the product.
Use this document as a selling script or training tool.
What is it?
The US-1800 is the best choice for musicians who need
a lot of inputs – 16 in total:
8 XLR mic inputs with Phantom Power and
TASCAM Premium mic pres
6 balanced 1/4” TRS line inputs, two of them
selectable to guitar/bass level for recording direct
Stereo S/PDIF digital input and output
This makes the US-1800 a clear choice for musicians
in a band. In addition, the customer gets:
Four balanced line outputs
MIDI input and output
S/PDIF stereo digital in and out
1/4” headphone output
High-speed USB 2.0 connection to a computer
96kHz/24-bit support for all 16 inputs and 4 outputs
Zero-latency direct monitoring
Steinberg Cubase LE5 software
TASCAM includes Steinberg’s Cubase LE5, the
latest version of their software. Far from just a
starter program, this recording powerhouse offers
48-tracks of 96kHz recording, automated mixdown,
64 MIDI tracks, a library of VST plug-ins and an
upgrade path to the full version of Cubase.
Qualifying the Customer
Software Support
The US-1800 supports Mac OS X as well as Windows XP,
Vista and Windows 7 computer systems. The Core Audio
and ASIO drivers support virtually all workstations:
Pro Tools 9, Cubase, Nuendo, SONAR, Digital Performer,
Logic Pro, Live, Final Cut Pro, Fruity Loops, and Reason
TASCAM’s US-1800 is based on USB 2.0 technology,
which offers several advantages over FireWire technology:
20% higher bandwidth than FireWire 400
USB 2.0 found on all modern computers
Most new Macs have a FW800 connector, which
requires an adapter to use a FW400 interface
When a customer asks for a computer interface, the
first thing to do is to ask if they are recording themself (where a 2-in interface like the US-144mkII might
be sufficient) or recording a band or drum set.
You might also ask them about their computer’s
condition – if a single 4-year old PC is being shared
among a whole family, maybe a stand-alone recorder
like the 2488neo could be a better choice.
When you decide that the customer needs more than
two inputs, there’s no better value than the US-1800.
No other interface offers so many inputs at such a
great price.
