Summary: I was looking for some easy way to multitrack a band in a live situation. Short of buying a new digital console with multitrack software, I thought I would give the 1800 a try. It does have a lot of inputs, and for the money, it has the most I've seen.
Summary: Very good interface, do what it need to do. For its price range is some of the best options. Good preamps, I used whti a shure Sm7b and works very good, much better than the preamps of fast track for example.
This thing is a work-horse and great addition to a small home-based studio.

Summary: I learned studio recording technique on analog equipment and after a very long vacation from recording music I took the plunge and started recording again. Riding the learning curve of digital recording without breaking the bank, I researched and decided on the US-1800.
Summary: Works great on my matchbook pro using Logic. I was skeptical about USB as I had mostly used Firewire in the past but so far I've used 11 of 16 channels and it has performed great. Great I/O for the money.
Great interface, but Cubase 5LE limits it's "effect-tiveness".

Summary: I owned North Country Sounds Recording Studios in the 70's and 80's, and produced and recorded records for The Nubs, GG Allan, Tyler Capone, and many others that now sell for hundreds of dollars on Ebay. In fact, The Nubs' 45 was just re-released this week, and is available on Ebay!
Summary: Gets the job done with pro audio quality. At first i doubt buying it because i thought it would be cheap quality because of the price, "you get what you pay for". But i was wrong, its giving me amazing quality for an excellent price.
Summary: Works exactly as it should. Installed without issue in Windows 764 and I use Sonar X1 as my DAW - neither of which have a problem with the US-1800. It's quiet and well made and I'm very happy with it.
