Tascam Model 24

The Tascam Model 24 is a 22-channel analogue mixer with a built-in 24-track digital recorder. Perfect for production and live recordings, the Tascam Model 24 is provides a multi-track recorder, mixer, and audio interface. A true hybrid console featuring the latest digital technologies alongside physical channels featuring 100mm physical faders, 3-band sweepable EQ and aux send knobs.

The multitrack function of the Model 24 allows users to 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. The console can directly playback 22 tracks simultaneously from an SD card. A built-in USB 2.0 audio interface enables the same functionality of 24 track recording and 22 track playback from your Mac or Windows computer.

16 high-grade microphone preamps are available to help obtain the best recordings possible whether in the studio, rehearsal room or at a live show. 

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 powerful portable mixing solution.

Channel Design
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 optimised for use with mobile devices and features either stereo RCA and mini-jack inputs as well as Bluetooth™ pairing. This channel has also been optimised to feed Monitor 1 and Monitor 2 via rotary auxiliary send controls.
