Master your audio recordings with a professional stereo mastering recorder from Tascam. Mastering is the last and most important step in audio production. The Tascam DA-3000 has been a professional, maintenance-free master recorder for almost ten years. It enables users to record a stereo mix in high-resolution PCM or DSD format on CompactFlash or SD cards.
Such a recording is also known as a premaster because it is used to create the actual master (glass master for CDs, lacquer/metal master for vinyl records) before the (mechanical) audio carrier is produced. This makes it clear that for such master recordings or premasters only extremely high-quality, low-noise and low-distortion recording devices with a wide frequency range and excellent channel separation are suitable. For mastering, i.e. post-processing vocal tracks, Tascam also offers a professional, studio-quality vocal processor.
