The TM-D4000A is TASCAM's third generation of digital mixers, benefiting from seven years' development of digital mixing technology. The TM-D4000A is a 32-channel, 8-bus, 6 auxiliary send digital mixer with built-in effects and surround mix capabilities.
For users wanting even more channels, up to four TM-D4000As can be cascaded with the built-in cascade port. A flexible I/O structure and extensive built-in machine control capabilities allow users to integrate this mixer into many live and recording situations. Single layer buttons and a large, clear screen offer intuitive navigation of this feature-packed mixer. Libraries for EQ curves, dynamics, snapshots, and effects allow frequent settings to be recalled at any time. Dynamic automation can be accomplished with the included Windows 95/98 software application.
The first 8 channels of the TM-D4000A are dedicated to analog input, providing 8 mic preamps and balanced TRS inputs with insert points. The remaining 24 channels are configured with I/O cards in 8-channel blocks with the 3 card slots in the back panel.
Slots 2 and 3 of the TM-D4000A are equipped with IF-LP4000 Lightpipe cards. In addition to the audio I/O, these cards also offer remote control for an ADAT. The TM-D4000A can then act as a powerful remote control for these recorders. The large time code display on the front panel of the TM-D4000A will also be able to display tape location from the remote port.
The TM-D4000A is an incredibly cost effective mixer, and is flexible enough to fit into a number of applications.
Personal and Project Studios
The TM-D4000A is a wonderful centerpiece for studios based around MDMs (Modular Digital Multitracks). A digital mixer minimizes the A/D and D/A conversions, allowing the highest quality audio available. The TDIF and Lightpipe cards come with their associated machine control built-in, offering direct control right from the surface of the console. The added value of all the dynamic processors, extensive EQ, and built-in effects offer mix control far beyond anything found in analog consoles many times the price. Plus, dynamic automation capabilities with the external Windows 95/98 computer and surround sound capabilities solidify the mixer's relevance well into the future of DVD audio delivery.
Audio for Video
The TM-D4000A has 8 high-quality mic preamps and surround mixing capabilities, offering a powerful solution for monitor mixes in ADR and Foley stages, as well as recording simple surround stems for later assembly. The TM-D4000A has a standard 9-pin port for controlling video decks, and can be equipped with AES/EBU cards for interfacing with most any digital audio workstation. For larger projects, up to four TM-D4000As can be cascaded providing up to 128 channels.
