The Classics, Reborn.

The simple and intuitive user interface of the Tascam Model 24 Recording Mixer

The Simple, Intuitive Design

One glance is all you need - Model 24 was developed to be simple and intuitive for anyone to use. The 100mm physical faders allow for precision when tweaking volume, the accessible 7- band graphic stereo EQ to master the mix, the familiar EQ/Aux knobs, and the input/output jacks are all on the surface for quick and easy access.

TASCAM’s revolutionary recording technology

Model 24 allows the users to directly record to an SD card, 24 tracks simultaneously in 24bit/48kHz, and it is capable of punching in/out 8 tracks at the same time. With TASCAM’s revolutionary recording technology, the console can also directly playback 22 tracks simultaneously from an SD card. TASCAM’s 16 high-grade mic preamps will guarantee a capture of the most pristine sound possible.

A true triple threat

Mixing with a Tascam Model 24 Hybrid Recording ConsoleThe best of both worlds, the TASCAM Model 24 is a full-featured 24-track digital multi-track recorder and 24-channel USB audio interface with integrated analog mixdown capabilities. From stage to studio, the Model 24 helps you bring your music together in one easy-to-use device.

Record

Tascam Model 24 Hybrid Recording Console used during live mixing and recordingAt the heart of the Model 24 is the legendary TASCAM’s multi-track recording engine. Delivering quality and reliability as only TASCAM can, the Model 24 enables you to record and play back any combination of 24 tracks of digital audio as well as perform overdubs and punch-ins quickly and easily. 

Record every live gig you play, build your songs track by track, or play along to pre-recorded backing tracks and record the final performance. The Model 24 is designed to work the way you work, with no delays, no limitations and no compromises. 

Connect

Tascam Model 24 Hybrid Recording ConsoleEqually at home in a project studio as on the road the Model 24 is the ideal analog counterpart to your Digital Audio Workstation. With enough inputs to capture an entire band in a single take, the Model 24 provides quick and easy signal routing to and from your computer without having to stop to re-patch and re-set levels. Inspiration won’t wait, and TASCAM won’t slow you down.

Mix

Tascam Model 24 Hybrid Recording ConsoleFeaturing 12 Mono input channels and 4 Mono/Stereo channels, the TASCAM Model 24 is flexible enough to support most groups on stage but compact enough to carry to the gig. Low-noise, high-gain preamps, one-knob compressors (on selected channels), flexible routing, powerful EQ and silky-smooth 100-mm faders combine to deliver a truly dynamic, real-time mixing experience. Combine this with a 7-band EQ, dual monitor sends, and on-board effects making the Model 24 a truly powerful portable mixing solution, ready to take the stage (or studio). No confusing sub menus, no lost presets, just immediate hands-on control and incredible analog sound quality.

Channel surfing

Top view of the Tascam Model 24 Hybrid Recording Console

Designed for use on the road and in the studio, The Model 24 features four different channel strip configurations. The first two channels feature both an XLR input as well as a switchable line/instrument level jack input. These are followed by a TRS Insert connector for easy patching of a compressor, EQ or other effects. Next are the preamp gain controls (with overload indicator LED), switches for a 100-Hz low-cut and the line/instrument level select switch.

These are followed by the routing mode selector, which is common to all channels and allows input assignment selection of your choice - the live incoming signal, the return from a DAW channel or the return from the internal multi-track recorder to each channel for EQ, processing and level control. Worth noting is that the low-cut switch and the one-knob compressor are both wired into the signal path prior to the routing mode selection. This ensures that recorded tracks take full advantage of the low-cut and compressor setting features.

Directly below this selector, and common to the first 12 channels is a one-knob compressor that helps to quickly and easily tame dynamics during a live performance. Also common to the first 12 channels is a musical 3-band EQ with a sweepable midrange frequency.

Following the EQ section are a set of three auxiliary sends labeled Monitor 1, Monitor 2 and FX, providing additional routing to foldback systems and effects. Next up is the fader section which is consistent across the entire mixer. This roomy control area boasts a Pan control, a backlit Record Enable switch and Mute button with an LED indicating engagement. Below these the Model 24 features a full set of 100-mm level faders and individual selector switches for assignment to the main mix, the sub group and pre fade listen. Once again, these are common to all channel strips.

Channels 3–12 have been streamlined to feature XLR microphone and 6.3-mm line-level inputs.

Channels 13/14 – 19/20 are configured as stereo input channels and feature an XLR microphone input as well as dual 6.3-mm stereo inputs, with the left input summing to mono if the right input connector is unused. As these channels will typically be used for keyboards, drum machines, modular synthesizers and effects processors, the audio controls have been simplified to remove the one-knob compressor and to feature an intuitive fixed three-band EQ.

The final channel configuration – channel 21/22 has been optimized for use with mobile devices and features either stereo RCA and mini-jack inputs as well as Bluetooth™ pairing. This channel has also been optimized to feed Monitor 1 and Monitor 2 via rotary auxiliary send controls.

Master and Commander

Master section of the Tascam Model 24 Hybrid Recording ConsoleThe Master section of the Model 24 has been designed to for fast and intuitive use during live performance and tracking. Directly at hand are premium-grade 100-mm faders for the main mix, both monitors and sub-mix as well as mute and assignment buttons. Directly above are the controls for the on-board digital effects processor which allow you to add Reverb, Delay, Chorus, Flanger and more to one or more sources and destination.

Make Tracks

The integrated 24-track digital multi-track recorder of the Tascam Model 24 Hybrid Recording ConsoleThe integrated 24-track digital multi-track recorder makes the Model 24 the ideal choice for performers and songwriters alike. With the press of a button, your entire set is recorded and saved to SD card as individual tracks which can be mixed right there and then or imported into you DAW for editing, overdubs and mastering. And in between live gigs, the Model 24 serves as the ideal songwriter’s companion with full record, overdub and punch-in/out capabilities.

Live and Let DAW

Beyond the ability to simply move recorded tracks to and from a DAW, the Model 24 is also designed as a powerful USB audio interface, complete with premium-quality mic preamps and on-board compression. Ideal for project studios, the Model 24 will provide 24 simultaneous inputs to a computer-based recording system, making it incredibly easy to record multiple musicians simultaneously without the frustration of channel limitations.

The Model 24 also provides incredible flexibility at mixdown by making it simple to work completely in-the-box, or route tracks back through the mixer for 22 channels of hands-on control and true analog sound.
