so im looking into buying this: http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product/Tascam-US1641-10channel-AudioMIDI-USB-2.0-Computer-Interface?sku=245002

And I was wondering if anyone knows for a fact that it records each input into a separate track. In other words, input 1 on the mixer goes to track 1, and input 2 goes to track 2 and ect...

People say that it can't because it's usb but i've heard from other ppl that it doesn't make a difference.

thanks for the help....

Yes. Its a USB2.0 High Speed interface. Don't connect it to an external Hub.

It gets confusing because USB2.0 is specified at two very different speeds. Why they didn't call it USB2.0 and USB3.0 I have no clue. Probably marketing morons.

Avoid these interfaces for audio or video work:
USB1.0 is 4Mbits/second max
USB2.0 Full Speed 12bits/second max

All of these interfaces will support multiple digital audio channels
USB2.0 high speed is 480Mbits/second max
Old firewire is 400Mbits/second max
New firewire is 800Mbits/second max (can do High Def video)
