Tascam MODEL 16 Overview

The highly flexible Tascam Model 16 is a powerful, versatile, hybrid mixer/recorder/audio interface for both live and recording applications well suited for bands, studios, conferences, podcasts, houses of worship, and more. The full-featured, space-saving mixer offers 14 input channels including 10 HDDA microphone preamps with phantom power, two 1/4″ Hi-Z jacks, eight balanced 1/4″ mono line inputs, and two balanced 1/4″ stereo line inputs. Additionally, the last stereo input can accept signals from a variety of sources including Bluetooth, USB, RCA, or a 3.5mm stereo mini jack.

There is single-knob compression available on the first eight channels, while three auxiliary sends provide signal routing to a dedicated monitor and to one of 16 onboard multi-FX presets. The main and sub stereo buses offer simple grouping as well as a selectable and assignable 4-band semi-parametric EQ for fine tuning your mix. The Model 16 offers 15 faders, with 60mm of throw for quick and immediate mixing moves. Each channel may be assigned to receive audio from the live inputs, the internal multitrack recorder, or the USB 2.0 audio interface, allowing for versatility in any environment. The integrated 16-track recorder takes its cue from Tascam’s Portastudio line, offering multitrack recording with the ability to record the 14 input channels plus the main mix to an SD card as well as multichannel playback for advanced live performance backing or mixing. What’s more, the simple interface allows you to overdub and punch in/out without extensive menu diving. Additionally, the Model 16 features a built-in 16×14 USB 2.0 audio interface (up to 24-bit / 48 kHz resolution) for DAW-based recording and playback.
