The Tascam Model 16 is a 16-channel multitrack recorder with analog mixer and USB interface, designed for musicians and recording engineers. With 16 inputs, 8 mic preamps and 16 tracks of recording via an SD card, the Model 16 provides an all-in-one solution for capturing high-quality audio.

16-Channel Analog Mixer For Live Mixing

The built-in 16-channel analog mixer features 4-band EQ and AUX sends on each channel for shaping your sound. With a versatile input section including 10 mic preamps, 14 line inputs and 2 INS inputs, the Model 16 handles a full band with ease. The mixer's dedicated stereo output, control room outputs and headphone outputs provide monitoring options for any recording scenario.

Multitrack SD Recording and Playback

Record up to 16 tracks simultaneously to an SD card in CD-quality WAV format. Overdub, punch in and out, and edit tracks with the Model 16's transport controls and editing functions. Play back all 16 tracks through the mixer to rehearse parts, or bounce tracks together for a final stereo mix. With support for SDHC cards up to 32GB, you'll have plenty of recording time for your project.

USB Audio Interface For Computer Connectivity

The built-in USB audio interface allows you to connect the Model 16 to your Mac or Windows computer. Stream the Model 16's inputs and outputs to and from your digital audio workstation for further editing and mixing capabilities. You can also use the Model 16 as a standalone USB mixer, controlling levels via the analog mixer interface.

Additional Features

Other highlights include individual channel mute, solo and record arm buttons, reverb effects, slate mic and tone oscillator and MIDI in/out for transport control and sync. Rugged and roadworthy, the Model 16 is an all-in-one recording solution for capturing your music whenever and wherever inspiration strikes.
