The New Way of Mixing

Tascam Sonicview interactive digital mixing consoles.

By

12 January 2023

Tascam has a long history of producing top-notch recording equipment and digital mixers, which culminated in the legendary DA-88 eight-track modular multi-track recorder, and the DM-4800 digital mixer — a workhorse pair that once set a new benchmark. With Sonicview, Tascam has introduced a completely new line of digital recording consoles that use the most up-to-date technology and make it simple to view and control all of the parameters you want. These consoles features include fully customisable touchscreens, user-definable buttons, motorised faders, and user-friendly control software.

Choose A Model

Two Sonicview models are available, and differ in frame size, the number of physical inputs, mic preamps, faders, and touchscreens. Sonicview 16 offers 16 physical input channels with motorised faders and Tascam’s top-of-the-line Class 1 HDIA microphone preamps, while Sonicview 24 provides 24. Internally, the architecture of the two models is the same: generous 44 input channels (40 mono channels and 2 stereo channels); 22 flex output buses; the L/R main bus; and an internal SD/USB stereo audio recorder.

FEATURES AT A GLANCE
