TASCAM's Model 12 is a compact all-in-one integrated mixer designed for music and multimedia creators, songwriters and performers. Features include TASCAM's critically acclaimed multi-track recorder, USB audio/MIDI interface, DAW control functions, and unique podcasting capability including mix-minus and smartphone inputs. The Model 12 supports your creative process, production, and workflow from start to finish including podcasting.
12-Track Multi-Track Recording with 10 Track Playback
The Model 12's intuitive internal 12-track recorder records WAV files of up to 24-bit/48 kHz audio quality directly to an SD card, with 10-track playback. Supporting metronome, punch-in/out, and overdubbing functions, the internal recorder also allows WAV files to be imported directly into a DAW for further editing or production.
12 in / 10 Out USB Audio Interface for DAW Connectivity
An onboard USB Type-C connector facilitates connecting a computer to the Model 12 for playback and recording utilizing a wide range of popular DAW's.
DAW Control Integration
Basic external DAW control (Faders, Mutes, Pans, Solos, Record arm, Play, Record, Stop, FF/Rew, Jog) using HUI/MCU protocol emulation is integrated for tactile control of most major DAW's.
Click Output with TAP TEMPO
A dedicated click output with TAP TEMPO allows the tempo to be monitored in both live or recording environments. This allows live performers to play with tracks using the built-in multi-track engine or music creators to monitor the tempo when recording.
Seamless loop playback with the VAMP Playback function (Added in V1.11)
The VAMP Playback function gives a seamless loop playback between two selected points in a song, enabling interactive live playback for extended solos/jams, and repeated playback of selected track only. It can be also used for personal practice and band rehearsals to enhance the user's performance.
Onboard MIDI Functionality
Standard MIDI in/out connectors allow connection with a wide range of keyboards, drum machines, controllers, and other sources that employ MIDI connectors. The Model 12 can also be used for synchronized operation of multi-track recorders and other external devices like drum machines.
Podcast Your Latest Music and Live Performances to Your Fan Base
The Model 12 incorporates several features for podcasting and internet streaming like mix-minus, smartphone input, multiple mic-ready channels, Bluetooth pairing, dual headphone monitoring, and internal multi-track recording. Use the Model 12 as a versatile live production recorder, USB audio interface and live streaming tool.
All in One Production From Recording to Mastering
The Model 12's seamless integrated workflow facilitates less focus on the technical and more on the creative. The comfortable, familiar feel of the Model 12's 60mm faders and 1-knob compressor, 3-band EQ, and TASCAM's high-quality reverb effects allow fast tweaking of mixes and tones.
Pristine Audio Quality
TASCAM's Ultra HDDA (High Definition Discrete Architecture) mic preamps with EIN (Equivalent Input Noise) of -128dB ensure natural low noise and high-grade sound quality. Additionally, Hi-Z line level inputs are included on all channels for direct instrument input.
Compact Size with Plenty of Inputs
The compact Model 12 packs 8 XLR mic inputs (with +48V support), 10 TRS line inputs, a 3.5mm (1/8") TRRS input (for Smartphone) and Bluetooth 5.0 input to handle any small format recording or live production environment.
Versatile Routing for Perfecting Your Mix
Selectable PFL/AFL modes and solo in place (SIP) allow for flexible monitoring of individual channels, eliminating the need to mute each single channel when dialing in the perfect mix.
Dual Headphone Monitor
Top-panel accessible dual headphone jacks allow monitoring of two discrete headphone mixes simultaneously for performers and engineers alike.
