The TASCAM SERIES 208i 20-In/8-Out USB Audio/MIDI Interface 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.Supreme Audio FidelityIt 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 Amplifier) mic preamp circuitry guarantees transparent natural tone with ultra-low noise. A new-generation TASCAM audio interface engine delivers high-definition, 24-bit/192kHz recording and solid stability.Expandable Input CapabilityEasily 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. SERIES 208i has two S/MUX optical ports that can accept up to 16 channels of audio input from an ADAT- or S/MUX-compatible device. Built-in DSP Effects and ProcessingA DSP input and output mixer are 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 PC/Mac to process the audio more efficiently.Control Software for Matrix Mixing, Effects Processors and MoreFree, 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 very high stability, ensuring 100% reliable performance every time.Well-Designed Interface for Quick ProductionTASCAM 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.Included Software BundleAs a standard value-added feature, TASCAM SERIES 208i ships bundled with a suite of software: at the core of music production is Steinberg’s Cubase LE / Cubasis LE; for instrument recording included is IK Multimedia’s AmpliTube with guitar/bass modeling and powerful 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. Put premium sound between you and your sources without breaking the bank.
