Tascam DA-6400 Control

Control the recorder wirelessly from any position you choose

When the DA-6400 is installed in an inconvenient location such as a machine room, it can be controlled remotely from the performance space via Wi-Fi. In addition to basic transport operations like Record, Play and Skip/Search backward/forward, the operator can also set and locate marker points.

Transport control

In addition to basic Record, Play and Skip/Search backward/forward operations, Set and Skip buttons for Marks are provided.

Select any take from the take list

Tap the TAKE LIST button to bring up a pop-over display of the take list, and then select the desired take. 

Monitor the levels of all 64 channels and other status

The app is equipped with a 64-channel level meter, making it possible to monitor levels. When a level overload occurs, the bar meter changes to red, and a pop-up display of the channel number appears above the meter. The master clock status and timecode source as well as the remaining media capacity can also be checked.

Two types of time counters

There is a main and sub-counter for time display, making it possible to display multiple time formats. For example, you can monitor both the elapsed time and input timecode.

Tracks are displayed in groups of 16 and you can also swipe to set a function on or off for multiple tracks at once.

Tascam DA-6400 ControlBy locking out the control, accidental transport operations can be prevented during recording or playback. Swipe with two fingers to the left (while the panel is unlocked) to lock the transport buttons. Swipe with two fingers to the right (while the panel is locked) to unlock the transport buttons.

The app communicates with the DA-6400 via a Wi-Fi network, so monitoring and control can be performed from an optimal location even when the DA-6400 is installed in a rack case.

NOTE: A Wi-Fi router is needed for wireless connection. Connect the DA-6400 to your router and use its IP address to find it from the app.
