US-16x08 description:

The Tascam US-16x08 is a 16-In/8-Out USB Audio Interface. The TASCAM US-16x08 captures 16 mic and line inputs to your computer with clear sound quality and advanced features to manage big sessions. Eight Ultra-HDDA microphone preamps deliver the cleanest and quietest operation in their class while delivering up to 57dB of gain. An additional eight line inputs are provided, two of them switchable to instrument level for direct guitar or bass recording. Eight balanced line outputs are also available, two with a level control on the front panel for monitoring.

Built into the US-16x08 is a DSP Mixer for low-latency digital mixing. Each channel has four-band EQ, compression, and a reverb send for polished-sounding monitor mixes. In addition to interface mode, the US-16x08 can be used stand alone as a standalone mic preamp. Mac and Windows drivers are provided, as well as USB Class Compliant 2.0 drivers for tablets like Apple's iPad. MIDI inputs and outputs are also available on the rear panel. Whether using the ergonomically-designed angled desktop stand or mounting with the included rack ears, the US-16x08 includes enough I/O for almost any music recording application.

Would not work with any computer I plugged it into when I got it. Still waiting for Tascam to get back to me with a response.

Review:
The best USB interface I've ever used, I multitracked some drums the other day using all 8 XLR in puts, it didn't struggle at all, no noticeable lag. Very impressed!

Does the job, clean recordings. Managed to get less than 2 ms latency at 24/96 in reaper too. No problems.

Great product. Some driver issues, but a few restarts later and it's all sorted itself out.
