Tascam M-164/M-164FX/M-164UF

M-164, M-164FX, and M-164UF are analogue mixers with 16 input channels outstanding for their versatile connection concept, compact and stylish appearance and little weight. These consoles are perfect as keyboard or sub mixers on stage or for home recording or can be used as the heart of a small PA system on the road or installed in conference rooms, shops or restaurants.

Each model is equipped with six Mic/Line channel strips with XLR and TRS connectors as well as five stereo channel strips allowing virtually any possible audio source to be supplied to the mixer. A mini jack on the units’ top panel, for instance, allows users to plug in their MP3 player. And a Phono input for a vinyl turntable is also available.

M-164FX and M-164UF feature an additional digital effects processor with 16 presets, and the M­‑164UF is additionally equipped with a USB audio interface providing 16 audio inputs and two audio outputs on a connected computer – ideal for multi-track recording in a home studio or on the road.
