TASCAM’s Model 12 has been designed for music production, remix/EDM creation and song writing
TASCAM has unveiled its Model 12 integrated production suite, a multitrack recording mixer for audio and multimedia creators featuring an integrated 12 track multitrack recorder, USB audio interface, 10 input mixer, MIDI connectivity, click output and DAW controller. Applications include music production, multimedia production, remix/EDM creation, song writing and live performance where a solo artist plays along with tracks and/or beats.
Ten inputs allow the connection of a range of audio sources, from microphones to instruments or rhythm/beat sources. Channels 1–6 feature combo XLR/1/4-inch inputs using TASCAM's Ultra-HDDA microphone preamplifiers with 48V phantom power. Stereo channels 7/8 and 9/10 feature combo XLR/1/4-inch left channel inputs with adjoining right channel 1/4-inch inputs. Channel 9/10 also allows portable device connection such as mobile phones and tablets with connection via an 1/8-inch TRRS mini-connector or Bluetooth 5.0 connection.
The Model 12’s internal 12-track multitrack recorder records WAV files (up to 48kHz/24 bit) directly to SD, SDHC and SDXC cards (up to 512GB capacity). Basic external DAW control (Faders, Mute, Pan, Solo, Record arming, Play, Record, Stop, FF/Rew, Jog) is available using HUI/MCU protocol emulation. The internal recorder allows simultaneous recording/playback of 12 tracks (10 tracks and stereo master) to and from SD cards.
Outputs include stereo main (XLR) and sub (1/4-inch balanced) stereo outputs, AUX1 and AUX2 (1/4-inch balanced) outputs and two individual 1/4-inch stereo phones outputs. Integrated MIDI in/out functionality is offered including MIDI sync and MTC, as is a dual footswitch feature for external footswitch control of the on-board digital recorder.
