Description

The new TASCAM SERIES audio interface family provides professional quality.




Expandability, both internal and bundled effects processing, internal mixing, external software control, and more for studio, home, and live recording. With a new look, including an angled tabletop design and large, easy-to-grab knobs, TASCAM sets a new standard for mid-grade audio interfaces.


 


Special versatile bundled software to produce your music from start to finish



TASCAM SERIES audio interfaces are bundled with a series of software that allow full operational coverage: at the core of music production is Steinberg's Cubase LE / Cubasis LE; for instrumental recordings comes IK Multimedia's AmpliTube with guitar/bass modeling and colorful effects; newly added to the bundle is iZotope's redesigned Neutron Elements, which includes 4 powerful tools for creating great mixes; last but not least, IK Multimedia's T-RackS mastering software will finish up users' creations into high quality masterpieces.


 


Supreme Audio Fidelity


 


It all starts with the best sound: TEAC and TASCAM have more than 60 years of high grade audio design experience. TASCAM Ultra-HDDA (High Definition Discrete Architecture) mic preamp circuitry guarantees transparent natural tone with ultra-low noise.


 


24-bit/192 kHz




The new windows driver also allows to set the minimum size of the audio buffer (from only 4 samples), which results lesser round trip latency with maximum performance, suitable for each computer's configuration.


 


Expandable input capability to grow into



Easily add more input channels to accommodate future growth by using external microphone preamplifiers with S/MUX optical inputs to record drums, guitars, keyboards, vocals, and more. Each S/MUX optical port can accept up to 8 channels of audio input from an ADAT- or S/MUX-compatible device.


 


Well-designed interface for quick production



TASCAM SERIES audio interfaces feature a large, easy-to-grab Monitor control knob that ensures you can quickly adjust the monitor output level. Their angled tabletop design offers easy access to all front-panel controls. A handy Monitor Balance control enables mixing live input with computer playback for zero-latency monitoring. Each analog input channel is served by an individually switched +48 volt phantom power supply for condenser microphones.


 


Dual headphone monitoring




 
The SERIES interface has 2 individual headphone amplifiers which offer powerful enough dual headphone monitoring.


 


Control Software for Matrix Mixing, Effects Processors, and More





Free, easy-to-use TASCAM Control software (TASCAM SERIES Settings Panel) manages faders, processing, and the ability to route any audio input (analog, optical, and USB) to any audio output.


 


Built-in DSP Effects and Processing


A DSP input and output mixer is complemented with digital reverb, compressor, phase invert, and 4-band EQ for each channel. Having these processors included internally eliminates all latency issues and takes the load off the computer allowing the Windows / Mac to process the audio more efficiently.


 


Mobility



TASCAM SERIES interfaces support tablets and other mobile devices and are compatible with many applications to meet your recording needs now and in the future.
