NAMM 2007: Tascam introduces new products

Published: Mon January 22, 2007  News Feed

2488MKII - Digital Portastudio

The 2488MkII is the successor of the 2488, by far the most affordable 24-track recording and mixing workstation ever made for home studios. Besides many improvements in detail, the “Mark Two” comes with a larger hard disk, a faster CD-RW burner and additional effects.

Eight inputs can be simultaneously recorded into the XLR and jack inputs. Each song can have up to 250 virtual tracks, 24 of which can be chosen for the final mix. A submixer allows to add eight more input channels during mixdown for a total of 32 mixing channels. A further stereo track is provided for recording the pre-master which can then be written directly to CD/CD-RW.

The 2488MkII has four XLR inputs with switchable phantom power for condenser mics plus four balanced jack inputs one of which can be switched to high impedance for electrical guitars. Each track and input offers 3-band EQ and three effect sends for sound and dynamics variation.

The 2488MkII’s editing functions enables the user to edit their audio tracks with high precision. Sections can be copied and pasted, cut and moved, tracks can be duplicated and up to 999 steps can be undone and redone. Alternative takes allow users to select the best take from multiple takes of a recording session.

For data backup, songs can be written to CD-R/CD-RW or can be transferred to a computer via a USB connection. Songs can also be exported as WAV files, and mono WAV files can be imported into songs.


DV-D01U - Professional DVD Player

The DV-D01U is a HDCP-compliant 1-U rack-mountable single disc player with a powered loading tray. It reads DVD Video, DVD Audio (2-channel only), Video CD, CD-DA, MP3, WMA, WAV, JPEG, ASF, MPEG-2/MPEG-1 and DivX. Properly finalized DVD+R/+RW media (video format discs only) can also be played back.

On the output stage, the DV-D01U offers HDMI audio/video, Composite, S-Video, and Component video connectors. Analogue stereo audio outputs are unbalanced (RCA). Digital audio outputs are optical and can pass Dolby Digital and DTS surround streams for later decoding. A screen saver function and defeatable on-screen icons are also provided.

Users can choose from multiple playback modes, including slow motion and frame by frame playback, power-on play, aspect adjustment, selectable scan mode, tray-lock, FVPP, and Progressive Scan. When stopped, the DVD player output is black.

The DV-D01U provides extensive bi-directional RS-232 serial control and has an infra-red remote control included.
