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. 7733 Telegraph Rd • Montebello, CA • 90640 • 323.726.0303• www.tascam.com © 2011 TASCAM, a division of TEAC America, Inc.
