USB Audio/MIDI Interface With DSP Mixer (20 in, 8 out)
The SERIES 208i audio/MIDI interface is the right choice for professional studio and live recording. It provides up to 20 audio inputs and eight audio outputs to a Mac or Windows computer or an iOS device, for recording and playback at up to 192 kHz / 24 bit and with the superb audio performance one expects from Tascam. Controllable with included custom software, this versatile USB interface is equipped with a powerful DSP input and output mixer with built-in digital reverb, compressor, phase invert and four-band EQ for each channel. Having this processor included internally eliminates all latency issues and takes the load off the computer allowing it to process the audio more efficiently. A new USB driver offers very high stability, ensuring reliable performance throughout all phases of your projects.

The four analogue mic/line/instrument combo inputs are fitted with Tascam’s transparent, natural-sounding, low-noise Ultra-HDDA mic preamps and individually switchable phantom power (+48 volt). A maximum of 20 inputs (eight at 192 kHz) are available when using the two multi-channel optical ports which can accept up to 16 channels of audio input from a ADAT- or S/MUX-compatible devices. Eight balanced 6.3-mm line outputs enable multiple monitor mixes or up to 7.1 surround monitoring and there are dual headphone outputs with dedicated level control. Word clock input and output ensure correct synchronisation with other digital audio devices. And you can also connect your favorite MIDI devices to the rear-panel MIDI input and output to use them with your recording software.

The angled tabletop design gives easy access to all front-panel controls. You can quickly adjust the monitor output level with a large front-panel Monitor knob, and use the handy Monitor Balance control to mix live input with computer playback for zero-latency overdubs.

Start Your Projects Immediately With Bundled Software
While free, easy-to-use Tascam control software helps you manage faders, processing and routing of any audio input (analogue, optical and USB) to any audio output, the interface comes also with Steinberg Cubase LE DAW software for Windows and macOS and Cubasis LE app for iPad. With IK Multimedia AmpliTube guitar effects/modeling software and T-RackS mastering software you get the tools you need to deliver high-quality, polished recording projects. The IK Multimedia software is provided in both free standing and plug-in versions for complete, versatile recording, mixing, and mastering.

iZotope award-winning plug-in included
Neutron Elements provides an easy, fast way to a professional mix – and it is included with every purchase of a Tascam SERIES interface. Neutron brings mix workflows to the 21st century with four modern mixing tools in one mothership plug-in, featuring mix assistance powered by machine-learning with unrivaled quality and speed

Expandable Input Capability to Grow Into
Easily add more input channels to accommodate future growth by using external microphone preamplifiers with S/MUX optical inputs to record drums, guitars, keyboards, vocals, and more. Each S/MUX optical port can accept up to 8 channels of audio input from an ADAT- or S/MUX-compatible device.

Dual Headphones Monitoring
The SERIES interface has two individual headphones amplifiers powerful enough for dual headphones monitoring.

Built-in DSP Effects and Processing
A DSP input and output mixer is complemented with digital reverb, compressor, phase invert and four-band EQ for each channel. Having this processor included internally eliminates all latency issues and takes the load off the computer allowing it to process the audio more efficiently.

Mobility
Tascam SERIES interfaces support tablets and other mobile devices and are compatible with many applications to meet your recording needs now and in the future.
