Tascam

Tascam has announced the release of its new Series 102i 10-in, 2-out and Series 208i 20-in, 8-out audio-MIDI interfaces, which deliver 24-bit, 192 kHz recording and playback to a Mac, Windows PC, or iPad.

Controllable with included custom software, the two versatile Series USB 2.0 interfaces feature powerful DSP input and output mixers with built-in digital reverb, compressor, phase invert, and four-band EQ for each channel. Having these processors included internally eliminates all latency issues and takes the load off the computer allowing the PC/Mac to process the audio more efficiently.

Perfect for guitarists, songwriters and small studio owners, the compact Series 102i audio/MIDI interface provides 2 analog mic/line/instrument combo inputs with Tascam's transparent, natural-sounding, low-noise Ultra-HDDA mic preamps and individually switched, +48 volt phantom power. The interface can be expanded up to 10 total inputs using its Optical S/MUX port, which can accept up to 8 channels of audio input from an ADAT- or S/MUX-compatible device. The Series 102i also provides dual headphone outputs with dedicated level control and two balanced, 1/4-inch line outputs for versatile monitoring.

A great choice for studio and live recording, the Series 208i features four analog mic/line/instrument combo inputs with Ultra-HDDA mic preamps and individually switched phantom power. It can be expanded up to 20 total inputs using a pair of Optical S/MUX ports, each of which can accept up to 8 channels of audio input from an ADAT- or S/MUX-compatible device. Eight balanced, 1/4-inch line outputs enable multiple monitor mixes or up to 7.1 surround monitoring. You also get dual headphone outputs with dedicated level control. Word clock in and out ensures correct synchronization with other digital audio devices.

Both interfaces come with Steinberg's Cubase LE DAW software for Windows and macOS and Cubasis LE app for iPad. The included IK Multimedia AmpliTube guitar effects/modeling software and T-RackS mastering software provide the tools you need to deliver high-quality, polished recording projects. The IK Multimedia software is provided in both free standing and plug-in versions for complete, versatile recording, mixing, and mastering.

Free, easy-to-use Tascam Control software manages faders, processing, and the ability to route any audio input (analog, optical, and USB) to any audio output. A new USB driver offers high stability.

The Series 102i and 208i interfaces' angled tabletop design offers easy access to all front-panel controls. A large front-panel Monitor knob ensures you can quickly adjust the monitor output level, and a handy Monitor Balance control enables mixing live input with computer playback for zero-latency overdubs. Rear-panel 5-pin DIN MIDI In and Out jacks allows connection of your favorite MIDI devices. A Kensington key lock helps keep your gear safe.

Tascam Series 102i and 208i interfaces are available at estimated street pricing of $399.99 and $499.99 respectively, at your favorite Tascam dealer.
