MESSE09: Affordable Analog Mixers


TASCAM tell us that their M-164 series is a new line of analog mixers, combining great analog specs with cutting-edge digital technology. Here's what they have to say about the three models in the range...
The M-164 is a 16-channel mixer with 6 mic inputs, great-sounding EQ and a striking design with built-in meter bridge. The M-164FX adds digital effects like reverb, delay and chorus for polished mixes without adding external processing. The M-164UF is the first compact mixer with a built-in USB 2.0 to deliver all 16 outputs to a computer for live or studio recording.
"TASCAM started the home studio revolution, and TASCAM mixers were top sellers through the '70s and '80s," said Paul Jenkins, VP of Sales and Marketing for TASCAM. "These latest mixers not only have the great-sounding audio performance TASCAM is known for, but new digital technology that allows each channel to be recorded individually to a computer through USB. TASCAM has been an innovator in high channel counts over USB 2.0, and the M-164UF is the latest example."
