PC/Windows requirements for the the Tascam US-122

Minimum
Pentium II – 266 MHz processor
running Windows 98 (Second Edition) or Windows Me (Millennium Edition),
Windows 2000 or Windows XP,
96MB RAM.

Recommended:
Pentium II 300MHz processor
128MB RAM or better
(these requirements are for use with Cubasis VST.
Other applications will have different requirements.
Consult your application’s manufacturer for further information).


NOTE : The US-122 is not supported under Windows 95.
Tascam also does not recommend Windows 98 First Edition,
due to its limited USB implementation.

A fast EIDE hard disk is required for throughput of multiple audio tracks.
96MB RAM is the minimum recommended,
but with all digital audio programs,
you will obtain better results with more RAM.

An SVGA graphics card is suggested
(minimum 256 colors, 800×600 resolution or better).

Although this product has been checked for use with normally configured computers
which meet the specifications above, we cannot guarantee the operation of the product, even with computers meeting the specifications, due to differences in architecture and implementation between computers.

Chipsets are also a concern with USB audio. Tascam has found that the most
dependable motherboards are ones which utilize Intel-based chipsets.

You can determine your chipset by going into the Device Manager.
On the Windows 98 desktop, right click on My Computer, and select Properties.
Click on the Device Manager tab, and then click on the plus (+) sign next to Universal Serial Bus Controllers.

The US-122 has been successfully used with the following chipsets:
– Intel 82371 AB/EB PCI to USB Universal Host Controller
– Intel 82371 SB PCI to USB Universal Host Controller
– Intel 82801 AA PCI to USB Universal Host Controller
– ALi PCI to USB Open Host Controller Some other chipsets,
notably those specifying Open Host Controllers or OHCI
(rather than Universal Host Controllers or UHCI),
 have been subject to occasional incompatibilities.

While most OHCI systems have no problems with the US-122,
occasionally some older OHCI systems will exhibit problems.
We have found that, in the majority of these rare cases,
a PCI-based USB card utilizing an Opti-chip controller will work dependably.
These cards (also available in PCMCIA format for laptops) are
available through a number of manufacturers.
