The Tascam Model 16 is a compact all-in-one integrated mixer, multitrack recorder, USB audio interface, and DAW control. It features a powerful, internal multitrack recorder and captures 14 inputs and two main mix simultaneous audio tracks to an internal SD card.
The 16-input/14-output USB audio interface captures audio at a 24-bit/48 kHz sampling rate for recording or playing back from an external DAW (digital audio workstation). The Tascam USB driver delivers the minimum size of the audio buffer which can be set to as low as four samples, resulting in extremely low latency and the highest level of efficiency when recording audio.
The 14 inputs, including 10 mic, 14 line, and 2 instrument, are easily accessible on the top panel and provide flexible options for connecting microphones, instruments, or other audio sources for live recording or mixing. A Bluetooth 5.0 enabled stereo input source channel provides stereo RCA and 1/8" stereo (selectable) jacks for streaming audio device level control.
Using the channel mode switch, each channel can select the input source individually. This allows a flexible input configuration where some inputs can be live, other inputs can play tracks from the internal multi-track recorder, while other inputs can play tracks from a computer via USB - all simultaneously.
Mic inputs 1 through 8 deliver pristine audio quality with Tascam's Ultra-HDDA (High Deﬁnition Discrete Architecture) technology for transparent natural tone with ultra-low noise. A tactile gain knob tops each channel for precise tweaking of input levels. A push-button lo-cut filter and three-position input selector (Live/PC/MTR) facilitate quick and precise control of input source signals. A single knob inline compressor is available on inputs 1-8 as is a mid-range sweepable 3-band EQ.
Three aux buses (MON1, MON2[pre/post], FX) and pre-fade listen round out the Model 16's signal path routing options. A sub bus provides an additional stereo lineout source to the master send section.
Three aux outs route the audio signal for stage monitoring, or to external gear such as outboard effects, signal processors, or headphone mixes. The footswitch control jack provides additional monitoring and control features.
A four-band EQ with mid-range sweepable, wide/narrow Q can be dialed in for crafting the perfect mix, assignable to main outs or monitor 1/2 outs.
The Model 16 offers 16 editable and foot-controllable multi-effects, including reverb, delay, chorus and flange.
Record anything from live performance to rehearsals, worship events, spoken word and meetings, as well as perform overdubs and punch-in/out quickly and easily. Recorded tracks can be immediately mixed, mastered or exported to a computer for further editing, formatting and publishing.
