    Long-time REW user here, but I just got a Tascam US-366 USB audio interface to use as my 'soundcard'. After hours of struggling to get it to work right with REW (mostly because of the Mode switch being set wrong), and not finding specific enough instructions anywhere, I figured I'd save some...
