Is it worth getting the Tascam TM-D1000 over a Behringer MX2004A with a Behringer EX3200?!?!?!? someone please give me some professional advise no rookie advise! I personally didn't find the Tascam TM-D1000 interface difficult I was scrolling thru menu's like I have had the mixers for years, maybe because I'm a digital freak. But I can't make up my mind over the Tascam TM-D1000 or the Behringer MX2004A with a Behringer EX3200 Ultrafex?! someone respond as soon as possible!

This was the worst mixer I ever bought. The manuals sucked and it took me over three month to figure out that it wouldn't do what I wanted it to do because of software/hardware limitations. There's a reason why it was discontinued....the interface is the worst I've ever seen on any piece of gear. I hated it so much, I sold all my Tascam gear and went with a Yamaha AW4416 instead...a much better engineered piece of equipment...

(from a analog synth player and live performer who has had the pleasure of using almost all the digital mixers under $4000) Well I have one thing to say...DISCONTINUED!! Now you want to know why? Because it sucks. Whoever designed the interface should be pimp slapped and the EFX? oh my god they are completly awful and don't try to change them in real time. You will definitly get artifacts. But wait you say... maybe the manual... this is the worst manual I have ever read in my life. Makes no sense at all. Might as well be written in german then translated to swahili. The only thing going for it in my opinion is the fact that you can get one REAL cheap. SO it does have 8 analog to digital converters. And the XLR + some digi i/o. So for $500 it's worth it. But in my best and honest opinion, go to or and get a yamaha promix 01. 1000 times better. By the way I have a shiny new TM-D1000 with the extra EFX card for sale...

Video? what video? I didn't get a video but doesn't matter now. Everything is working perfect I just had a stressful and slow day. I even e-mailed Tascam and they still haven't given me a answer but I don't need their help anymore. Thanks for your respond daxyday, I'm for sure going to keep this digital beauty of a mixer. Now that the mixer is working, I am finding the mixer to be easy of use I love it. I'm dreaming in digital!

I would suggest watching the video that came with the mixer. It is long but very detailed on every function that the the TMD-1000 provides. I would also suggest that you don't need all of the functionality that a digital board provides to run live sound. Analog boards are much simpler to comprehend because there is a dedicated knob or button for every function rather than menus ,scroll knobs, and shift keys. The Tascam is way more than you need for live application. Return it and get a Mackie or Behringer or Peavey or what ever you can afford:-)
