Tascam Model 16 Multi-track Digital Recorder and Controller
A complete digital solution. The Tascam Model 16 provides many outstanding features as a stand-alone integrated production suite -  USB audio interface, a mixer, a standalone multitrack recorder, and a DAW controller. For songwriters, performers, podcast.

All-In-One Solution
Tascam's Model 16 is an all-in-one integrated mixer designed for music and multimedia creators, songwriters and performers. Features include Tascam's critically acclaimed multi-track recorder, USB audio/MIDI interface, DAW control functions, and unique podcasting capability including mix-minus and smartphone inputs. The Model 16 supports your creative process, production, and workflow from start to finish including podcasting. The Model 16's seamless integrated workflow facilitates less focus on the technical and more on the creative. The comfortable, familiar feel of the Model 16's 60mm faders and 1-knob compressor, 3-band EQ with Sweepable Mid Frequency and 100Hz Low-cut, and Tascam's high-quality reverb effects allow fast tweaking of mixes and tones. Ultra HDDA (High Definition Discrete Architecture) mic preamps with EIN (Equivalent Input Noise) of -128dB ensure natural low noise and high-grade sound quality. Additionally, Hi-Z line level inputs are included on all channels for direct instrument input. The compact Model 16 packs 10 XLR mic inputs (with +48V support), 14 line inputs, a 3.5mm (1/8") TRRS input (for Smartphone) and Bluetooth 5.0 input to handle any small format recording or live production environment.

16-Track Multi-Track Recording with 14 Track Playback
The Model 16's intuitive internal 16-track recorder records WAV files of up to 24-bit/48 kHz audio quality directly to an SD card, with 14-track playback. Supporting metronome, punch-in/out, and overdubbing functions, the internal recorder also allows WAV files to be imported directly into a DAW for further editing or production. A 1-knob inline Compressor is available on inputs 1-8 as is a mid-range sweepable 3-band EQ. 3 Aux bus (MON1, MON2 [pre/post], FX) and PFL Listen round out the Model 16's pro-level signal path routing options. 

16 in / 14 Out USB Audio Interface for DAW Connectivity
An onboard USB Type-C connector facilitates connecting a computer to the Model 16 for playback and recording utilizing a wide range of popular DAW's.

DAW Control Integration
Basic external DAW control (Faders, Mutes, Pans, Solos, Record arm, Play, Record, Stop, FF/Rew, Jog) using HUI/MCU protocol emulation is integrated for tactile control of most major DAW's.

Click Output with Tap Tempo and Seamless Loop Playback
A dedicated click output with TAP TEMPO allows the tempo to be monitored in both live or recording environments. This allows live performers to play with tracks using the built-in multi-track engine or music creators to monitor the tempo when recording. The VAMP Playback function gives a seamless loop playback between two selected points in a song, enabling interactive live playback for extended solos/jams, and repeated playback of selected track only. It can be also used for personal practice and band rehearsals to enhance the user’s performance.

Onboard MIDI Functionality
Standard MIDI in/out connectors allow connection with a wide range of keyboards, drum machines, controllers, and other sources that employ MIDI connectors. The Model 16 can also be used for synchronized operation of multi-track recorders and other external devices like drum machines.

Podcast Your Latest Music and Live Performances to Your Fan Base
The Model 16 incorporates several features for podcasting and internet streaming like mix-minus, smartphone input, multiple mic-ready channels, Bluetooth pairing, dual headphone monitoring, and internal multi-track recording. Use the Model 16 as a versatile live production recorder, USB audio interface and live streaming tool.
