Taking advantage of the latest FireWire technology, the new IF-FW/DM adds 24 inputs and 24 outputs from a computer DAW to TASCAM’s DM-24 Digital Mixer. For under $3,500*, a studio can add the DM-24 and IF-FW/DM to their DAW system, providing mixing, automation and processing capabilities to virtually any computer recording system through a single FireWire connection.
“Most recording engineers and musicians are comfortable working on a mixing console, yet they also want to take advantage of the latest editing and plug-in technologies that DAWs can offer,” explains TASCAM Product Specialist Jim Bailey. “Our best-selling DM-24 digital console already offers DAW control through HUI emulation. By adding 24-channel FireWire connectivity, studios can bridge the gap between their computer tracks and the synths, processors and recorders they’ve learned to rely on.”
The IF-FW/DM is an expansion card that follows the same design as the ADAT, AES/EBU, TDIF and analog expansion cards for the DM-24. Other features include: 24-channel input and 24-channel output when used with the DM-24 16-channel input and output when used at 88.1kHz or 96kHz sample rates with the DM-24 Adds 8 inputs and 8 outputs when used with the TASCAM SX-1 or SX-1LE, up to two cards can be installed MIDI Input and Output for use with DAW software Supports ASIO, MME, WDM and Apple Core Audio standards Mac OS X and Windows XP compatibility Two IEEE-1394 FireWire jacks
