Magic Mix
Stephen662, 30.07.2020
'Brilliant build quality' was the first thing I said to myself as I popped the box. Having read the manual back to front many times whilst waiting on delivery, I found that in half an hour I had set up and ready to go - card formatted, click track working, synced to BFD3 and USB audio streaming out of BFD into a pair of channels.

All I can say is that Tascam have really nailed it with this one, and if they put MIDI etc on the 24 track it would be a truly pro workhorse. However, 10 track recording (and 2 master track) are adequate for my needs; primarily used out of my studio to record jam sessions with buddies.

If you want to get really picky then here's the dirt:

1/ Only two insert points (but appreciate the cost implications of putting them on all channels). I must say though a pair of master inserts would have been nice.

2/ Only 2 fx sends. Again a cost issue - also no dedicated simple returns. If you use the built in FX you are good to go, but if you patch in a box then you are going to lose 2 channels for a stereo return.

3/ Tascam must be the master if syncing to other gear or your DAW. Does not worry me.

EVERYTHING else is just brilliant and a lovely sounding machine it is. Tascam have a certain magic, especially with digital gear. Blindfold, you would swear it is analogue, but to be fair its better than that.

Conclusion, money well spent. Great value, simple to use, and all you need to do is RTFM :)

Portastudio on steroids!
Fjellrot, 25.02.2021
Brilliant product for old farts like me. I'm screen working too much and I love the opportunity to work with hardware, tactile and with real sliders, switches and buttons. Works very well and fast, great sound and build quality, very nice design and easy to understand. I've only consulted the manual 2 or 3 times. So not much of RTFM! Small footprint, light and easy to carry. A real hit from Tascam. Great business thinking to see the need for this machine.

Highly Recommended
The Robot Boogie, 03.04.2021
My first mixing desk.
Positives:
• Warm analogue pre-amps
• Great hands-on controls and DAW control works well (once I had RTFM)
• built-in reverb sounds great
• records 12 tracks to SD card (great for post-production)
• looks great
• enjoyable DAWless recording
Negatives:
• part-digital signal path (sounds great though)
• not enough sends and returns
• only seems to output channels 1 and 2 to DAW

Great features and versatility
Paulover, 17.02.2021
I can only speak on DAW control and recording (haven't tried recording internally). It does have the professional feel and sensitivity of bigger desks. The DAW automation features cover the core of what you need, though in Logic you need your tracks organised -won't read folder tracks etc, and switching back and forth between mixing and recording involves manual re-adjusting of faders -fair enough.

Not exhaustively tested I've no negative point on it so far. It'd be awesome if it allowed for a higher recording frequency than 48Khz but, it's a great value for the money, maximum versatility
