Tascam DM-24
It is quite amazing that today you can get so many things for such a small price... Basically you get 16 analog AD/DA, ADAT and S/PDIF connectivity, 8 BUS, 6 AUX, etc,etc... For the price of many simple 16 channels AD/DA racks (analog <> ADAT). It can host 2 upgrade boards, so you can add more analog or digital I/O. I can stream 16 channels in both directions between my DAW (Cubase SX + SCOPE Project card) using 4 fiber optics (lighpipe) cables... Very nice.

$1,200 used with extra ADAT I/O


Quite easy to use BUT you need to spend a good amount of hours on the board. The manual is OK, but heck on forums online for other users.


Everything is very clean - if you want a mixer which adds &quot;character&quot;, this is not what you want. The EQ and compressors are precise and do what you ask them to do. In fact, it is so clean that one would benefit to have an additional analog mixer (like a Mackie 1604 VLZ PRO) for quick EQ and Summing character: they would complement each other very well.


It seems well built. People report problems with the LCD screen getting &quot;lines&quot; after a while but mine has no problems so far. I have seen some &quot;linked&quot; sliders not following as expected, or &quot;jumping&quot; a bit late. The sound did not seem affected; this only happened a couple of times in the last year. Note that some early models (including my unit) have poor preamplifiers on the channels... The gain &quot;jumps&quot; to super loud when you cross 9, and are not very powerful below that setting. Tascam offers a replacement set and will install it for you but I don't know the price.

Great mixer. Very convenient.

In addition to that table does not contain even no spell checker !!!

;-) ) )dropoff Window


In addition rack that is in larger racks than normal.
and as a is expensive, must Racker!
Racker and the rack is not hard ...


Much better on major scales and very average on tatoniques breads.


Rserver those who buy tables without looking and without reading their dimensions.

those who do all the ear what ...

16 mic inputs, it is convenient! and 4 line inputs and more!
In short, the connection is quite complete without options, too bad the TDIF (there are 3) have not been to another standard, because the TDIF still has the lead in the wing ...


Overall configuration for a single digital, no more abstruse than Yam in my opinion ... However, the manual does not shine by its clarity when addressing the DAW functions.
For my part, I do not use that live, or configuration will not vary much in general, and I have the manual as needed to get used to the finer points of digital (I must not be only).
Functions are often accessible by several paths, menus, on appeal from another function ... and the blow may be suitable for users from different bikes, who will find what they seek with their habits.
Anyway, not too many menus extension!


The highlight of the Tascam is their input stages and converters, which take very honorably road even compared to much more expensive bikes, and make MIDI for Yam ;-)
The gain ... I know, compared to the habits, the gain is almost always between 1 am and 5 ... and this is not the most practical. Tascam guys have made a choice, they explain in: https://www.sweetwater.com/sweetcare/articles/tascam-dm-24-microphone-preamplifier-design-philosophy/
Good EQ effective, practical, besides the several forms are available Q (cut up / down, top, notch, standard) and it is very useful.
The TC reverbs are beautiful. I do not mean the rest of the effects, I use a basic or a delay on the occasion in Octaver effects Tascam.


I use DM-24 since 2006, I had limited experience with digital before.
The reliability of the Tascam was not their strong point, yet the design is remarkable and construction quality. The display problems are partly due to heat, mismanaged in my opinion in this bike, and often aggravated by the users themselves: I saw DM-24 stuck in their foam fly by almost without ventilation, or in a beautiful studio furniture ... but no air passage in the cabinet for cooling the console. A little common sense on the part of users or active ventilation (but not noisy) and LCD problems were most likely much lower. 2seemy kit allows a VGA output and not worry about the internal screen, for the same price as the repair patch.
Similarly, the diet has been designed and built in 2000. She has aged, and some capacitors are dry and to change: this is the interview! Been a car that runs for years without an oil change? On my analog, I had to change the condos that were drying, spitting of knobs ... Well I did it also on my 6 DM, and they are functioning properly. With that said, the first numerical tables have wiped the plasters, and we have to date of consoles that have gained reliability, ergonomics and quality ... and also in price :-(
I love the sound of DM-24, they are transparent to perfection and mixing is easy and fast. I also like having 16 real XLR inputs plus 4 line, an extensive connection and a price secondhand in tidal daisies for what they offer. When I put in the balance is to maintain them seriously, which seems normal to me, I think these are real bargains.
I made this choice, I do not regret. I would do it again? Sure, why do you think I have 6??? ;-)

Won an award for technological excellence in 2002, this is all console output to rcente since September 2001.
Rackmount Console, 32 votes, 6 auxiliary inserts etc ...
2 inputs and 2 outputs AES / EBU or SPDIF (select by internal software).
between ADAT and TDIF two more possibilities to reach via addition of cards.
Between Timecode.
The internal effects are of good quality (for rverb TC Works, Antares mic and speaker for modlisation the rest as the flange, the delays, pitch, and the phaser-esser are made in Tascam but are correct ). At his, I prfre far the internal effects of this console those of Yamaha 02R, for example. In addition there are 2 effects processors that can be put in chains.
The qualisation is simple and effective, small things are practices such as headphones, for example 2 inputs ...
Since the days of version 2.03 of firmware console can be used as a surface CONTRL (via formulation of a Mackie HUI) for standard software, this feature is really excellent because motoriss trs faders are enjoyable and raccorcis work perfectly.
It has the possibility to mix in surround up to 5.1 and other formats intermdiaires.
The console can work up to 96Khz 24 bits.
In this picture trs beautiful console is not true but it seems to me prettier;)


As with any console numrique it needs to be done at beginners, but even for beginners this console is affordable terms difficult.
The manual was translated into French, and t is conut, it may be regrettable that there are no more examples "no no" to help beginners take hand the machine.
But by going to the site of amricain tascam can find documentation supplmentaire


The converters seem trs good, the dynamics are excellent. From the perspective of sound quality I did not blame the console.


I do use broadcast for several months, coupled with a G4 processor and a Bi MOTU 896. Everything works fine, I have had the opportunity to work with the 02R and I can say I prfre far the DM24: more compact, more features, better pramplis, better effects, etc ...
The list is long! like what Tascam did not lie: this machine Exceeds the competitors sometimes MODELS 2 3 times more expensive.
In 3000 I packed all that Tascam is one of the few manufacturers not to double the price once crossed the Atlantic.
