Tascam

Manufacturer's Description from Tascam

TASCAM's HS-8 is the first solution for professional multi-channel recording and playback to solid-state media. From studio surround recording to post production playback of HS-P82 location recordings, the HS-8 fits a variety of multitrack roles first pioneered by TASCAM's DA-88 recorders. Also true to TASCAM tradition, audio is top-quality throughout with up to 192kHz/24-bit recording.

Like the HS-P82, the HS-8 uses a color touch-screen interface to access settings and tracks. A mixer is built in for monitoring, and the stereo mix can be recorded live as a separate track. Audio is recorded as Broadcast WAV files to Compact Flash media, with SMPTE timecode available on various interfaces. A pair of CF card slots is available for data mirroring or continuous recording. The RC-HS20PD remote control allows operation from a separate room over RJ-45 connection.

TASCAM's HS-8 is the perfect DTRS successor, with the instant access, ease-of-use and sound quality studio and post professionals demand.

About Manufacturer

TASCAM, the company that invented the home studio revolution, is one of four divisions of TEAC Corporation, a $1.2 billion manufacturing company headquartered in Japan. While the other divisions of TEAC have grown into a multitude of high tech industries including data storage devices, consumer electronics tools and industrial products, TASCAM has remained dedicated to making innovative products for capturing creativity in the field of music and audio.

The beginning of TASCAM starts with the founding of TEAC nearly fifty years ago. In 1953, a pair of engineers in Japan - the Tani brothers - created the first TEAC product line, which was comprised of open-reel audio tape recorders. In the late 1960's, the Tani brothers and Dr. Abe, a senior engineer at TEAC, formed a special R&D group named TASC (TEAC Audio Systems Corp.) for the purpose of researching ways to apply TEAC's recording technology for musicians and recording studios. TASCAM (TASC AMerica Corp.) was established in 1971 for the purpose of distributing TASC products in the U.S. and conducting additional market research. The company's first home was at 5440 McConnell Avenue, on the west side of Los Angeles near Marina del Rey.
