I see that the US-16x08 recommends that I change the Windows Power Management settings. How do I do this?
Windows allows the processor to throttle to half speed when the computer is idle. However, this can affect the performance of DAW recording software. TASCAM recommends that this function be disabled, especially when using a multi-channel interface such as the US-16x08.
To Change the Power Management settings in Windows:
I want to listen to the direct sound through my interface, but turning the "Monitor Balance" knob isn't doing anything.
Open the US-2x2 / US-4x4 Settings Panel and switch "Line Outputs 1-2" to Monitor. If this is set to "Computer 1-2," the Monitor Balance knob won't do anything.
I am using SONAR and the performance with my TASCAM US-16x08 interface is not very good. How do I fix this?

If you still have problems, change the Buffer Size in the US-16x08 control panel:
