Tascam FW1082

The TASCAM FW-1082 Audio/MIDI Interface and Control Surface from TASCAM not only provides tons of audio and MIDI I/O to small studios, but offers a control surface with moving-faders for a previously unheard-of price. The FW-1082 features 10 inputs, including four balanced XLR mic inputs with phantom power. Two MIDI inputs and outputs are also included, plus S/PDIF digital I/O. Eight channel strips each feature a 60mm touch-sensitive moving fader and select/solo/mute buttons, and a moving master fader is also provided. The FW-1082 includes the latest TASCAM software bundle: Cubasis LE 96kHz/48-track recording software, GigaStudio 3 LE streaming sampler and Nomad Factory plug-in demos.
The FW-1082 is a great choice for small studios, whether someone is just starting out or if they're upgrading their equipment. Its four microphone inputs, two with analog insert jacks, have phantom power for professional condenser microphones. Four additional line inputs and a S/PDIF stereo input add up to 10 inputs simultaneously, each at 96kHz/24-bit audio resolution. Two MIDI inputs and outputs are provided for 32 channels of MIDI synth playback or control. The control surface has nine 60mm touch-sensitive moving faders for silky-smooth control over channel level, pan or aux settings. Four encoders are also available for mix control, as well as transport and jog/shuttle controls. Stereo monitoring is included, and the FW-1082 even mixes signals internally for stand-alone use.

All You Need for Studio Quality Recordings


from Undisclosed

Comments about TASCAM FW-1082 10-Channel FireWire Audio/MIDI Interface:

I've been recording for over 20 years. From reel to reel to today's digital DAW's, The FW-1082 is a great little controller. I'm hooked up to an older Mac G4 with dual video monitors, max memory, and lots of hard disk space. The Cubase LE bundled with it has more than enough guts whether you're a one person multi-layering musician or a full band. Great pre-amps, lots of options, and enough hands-on interface to let you accomplish virtually anything you want without a recording engineering degree. Plus plenty of plug-ins out on the web for Cubase to let you replace all those old rack components. If 8 isn't enough, get the FW-1884 and add 8 faders at a time. But for me, this controller does it all and helps me sound professional.
