Installing it was a breeze, mki the mixer immediately recognized it. My one comment would be if all of this was stated in a leaflet out lining getting started for those who are not computer techs I am a network tech. I used to have the MK1 card discontinued and now iffw/dm it was time to make the move to the mk2! Once that was out of the way I opened GarageBand for my first test and could see all 32 channels just fine. You will need to understand the internal routing of the Tascam DM series, and on the Mac side you need to do some configuration in the Audio-Midi system preference window.

Enter new zip code to refresh estimated delivery time. Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great Product if-fw/vm needs more instruction I bought this product to use with a Tascam DM mixing board.
Though all said and done you would by this unit only if you had the know how on trouble shooting. I still have a ways to go on the recording learning curve, but now I have the hardware to support that. One thing that I found disappointing, was that the firmware of the brand new card was on version 1. Prices are always fair and shipping is always quick and painless. I found it very easy to install and get every thing up and running, had no problem at all.
Packaging Info Package Weight 1. Also, a firewire cable was included, which was a nice surprise.
The physical installation was seemless. So with the card installed and the drivers installed the Mac and the board recognized if-fa/dm other right away. I’ve been doing mostly live sound for 4 of 5 years now and probably 3 years with the Tascam DM Rated 4 out of 5 by Whipman from You might want to fully check firmware The card was recognized by my DM right away but you will need to check the firmware and run all updates at the suggested order.
Basically I’m stuck now with 1.
Sorry this became a Vent comment. It proves to be what it was supposed to be: They always seem to have great prices and fast shipping on everything. After that, all works great! Having the DM mixer for recording and mixdown purposes, I absolutely needed this card.

Help would be great if we could get through to Tascam tech support before our phone batteries go dead. Something to think of, though, when ordering any firmware-needing hardware. I’m not sure how iif-fw/dm make a profit selling A stock, brand new items at such low prices, I’ll be back again.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Awesome interface Be sure to go to the tascam pages and update ALL firmware and drivers: I use it in my Tascam DM mixer, in a home recording studio I feel confident this will become a very reliable product, if we are ever able to get it to work correctly. Be the first to review this item. I did all updates and then restarted my MacPro to find I then had to double check my routing on the DM for the return playback into the DM I now have 32 ch IO running 96k 24 bit and it just works!
