I've been scouring support forums and the Logic user manual all day and unfortunately cannot seem to find an answer to this:

Is it at all possible to run Logic Express 9 with the Tascam US-122?

I've just converted from PC to Mac in the last couple of weeks: all of my software and drivers are all up-to-date so that should not be an issue. Obviously that means that I've previously been using my Tascam with Cubase on the PC, and I was really hoping it would cope with Logic too. The problem is that Logic does recognize the Tascam but when it comes to recording, I can't get it to work. Apparently it's something to do with the sample rate?

Please help - if it can be avoided, I don't want to have to buy another device. Any advice or answers would be very much appreciated!

Thank you.

    Have you opened up and changed anything in Audio MIDI Setup?

    it's possible. try to put an (active) usb-hub between the macbook pro and the us122. at least for me and my macbook this works. don't know really why maybe the usb-port doesn't have enough power. but on the other side it works also with an usb-hub that isn't connected to a power-supply...

    It sounds like you have the same setup as us.
    I (oops, wife) has a brand new iMac, a Tascam US-122L and a Yamaha KX8 controller. She started with GarageBand, then bought Logic Express 9 and just yesterday we ordered the upgrade to Logic Studio.
    Like any new computer setup of course nothing worked right away.
    She plugs her guitar into the Tascam but it didn't work until we changed to Input 2 in Logic (or was it GarageBand, sorry I am getting them confused).

    Anyway, my point is that you should not need any more hardware to make it work. We have yet to plug a mike into the Tascam...that will be the fun for the

    Good luck,
