I used this with my laptop to measure my speaker system. The mic inputs are XLR female, and 1/4" phone.
It took a lot of fiddling to figure out how to set it to funnel the REW5 sounds from my laptop through the US-322 and then to my HiFi.

      Comments about Tascam US-322 - USB 2.0 Audio Interface with DSP Mixer:

      I actually purchased this device as a graduation present for a musician friend of mine after having purchased and continually use 2 other Tascam USB audio interfaces. While I haven't used this one, I did take it out of the box to check it out. It's made as solid as the other 2 that I own. I have no doubt that it will provide many years of easy, high quality recording capabilities.

        Comments about Tascam US-322 - USB 2.0 Audio Interface with DSP Mixer:

        I use the US-322 professionally, for voice talent as well as a practice mixer for music.
        Direct, straightforward, robust designs initially drew me to Tascam products in the past. I find the US-322 is in line with that.
        I can't really comment on it's pre's as I use an outboard pre. The DI on ch. 1 and it's FX are quite usable. I really haven't run it through it's paces because my needs are quite simple; record two tracks at 44.1 / 16 bit resolution edit and export. The unit is able to do these tasks without any problems.
        I experienced some difficulty however initiallizing the bunduled - Cubase LE6. ("Missing ports")As a former owner of a DAW with Cubase, I was surprised to experience such a problem. I wasn't able to resolve the problem with Steinberg, due to the lack of contact information. I did however find help in their forum.
        I'm now up and running on both the US-322 and the LE6 and would recommend it to others.

        Comments about Tascam US-322 - USB 2.0 Audio Interface with DSP Mixer:

        The unit is very easy to use. I found that I was able to hook up my gear easily and launch the software successfully and quickly so that I was able to dive right into using the Tascam US-322. The units portability will also be an advantage as I will be recording in various locations. There could be an improvement in the User Interface of the software however. The gains and adjustments are overly sensitive and doing any fine tuning to effects, EQ, and other features becomes very difficult.

        Dual driver mode on a Mac is just awesome and very stable.
        For slower apps, i can switch to Core Audio drivers, For faster audio processing Bit Accurate mode is on the money.
        No complaints on my end.
        The DSP mixer is very useful, specially the De-esser.

        The thing that's no great about this product is the company that produce them, I receive this product apparently with an out dated CD, with not the correct driver, because I was unable to download it to my PC so I can start working with the Audio interface, I wrote to the company and there was not response from them, so I have to send another email, and finally after a few days (8) days total they at last answer me telling me supposedly what to do, but I had follow all their directions with not results, so I returned the product to the resale and I am still waiting for the refund of my money. I Must be clear that I will keep buying from B&H stores, this people are the best, they treat you with respect and courtesy always.

        We record and perform live podcasts and don't have a need for a full function audio board. We did need to upgrade so we could adapt to the latest operating systems. Tascam has always provided quality equipment. Set up and use is easy. It works for what we want and that's all you can ask of a product.

          I looked at a lot of interfaces, and I ended up buying this one, I have always trusted Tascam and this hasn't let me down. It was easy to setup, update and get going right out of the box. I struggled with the registration of the software but an email solved that. Works great, plenty of good features and the price is right!

                  The latency on the sound card installed in my computer did not easily allow recording a new track while listening to an existing track, so I decided to try the Tascam US-322. I use it for recording guitar and vocals and am very pleased with the sound, and I no longer have any problem with latency. I have not tried the supplied Cubase software but it works fine with Adobe Audition. Since I have a very simple recording setup I cannot speak to how this might work in a more complex studio environment.
