The US-1800 from Tascam is a USB 2.0 computer audio interface featuring up to 16 inputs and 4 outputs. Of the 16 inputs, 8 are microphone preamps with 48V phantom power switchable in groups of four. The preamps deliver 60dB of clean gain. Six balanced line inputs are also provided, as well as stereo S/PDIF digital and MIDI in and out.

Included with the US-1800 is Cubase LE 5 workstation software from Steinberg. This 48-track audio workstation includes features like automation, plug-ins, mixing, editing and MIDI tracks. Cubase LE 5 uses standard VST plug-ins for adding virtual instruments and effects.
