About Tascam HS-4000

The Tascam 4-Channel Broadcast Audio Recorder/Player is built for the needs of modern broadcast facilities. It captures four tracks to solid-state Compact Flash cards and two cards are available for simultaneous redundant recording. Confidence Monitoring is available to listen to audio off the card while recording. The HS-4000 can function as one 4-track recorder or a pair of individual 2-track decks. In addition to recording and logging tasks, the HS-4000 includes On-air and monitor play modes.

Audio on the HS-4000 is captured as Broadcast WAV files, including a timestamp from the SMPTE input source. The transport can be controlled over RS-232C, RS-422, Parallel or LAN control. Balanced analog audio is interfaced through XLR connectors and multi-channel AES/EBU digital I/O is available. A color TFT touchscreen is used to change settings and view meters on the HS-4000, making the GUI simple to use. Three remote controls are available with a variety of flash start, transport and fader functions.

Tascam HS-4000 Features

  • Lightweight and compact flash starting system: Most of the flash starting systems that have been used until now have been large, so when it has been necessary to move them between studios, the work of transferring them has been extremely difficult
  • Efficient flash start operation with 2x2 playback: In situations where the use of two players and a controller are necessary, a setup composed of HS-4000 and RC-HS32PD one pair is extremely efficient, particularly in terms of space, cost and operability
  • Flash start keys can display file names making them easy for anyone to use: Each RC-HS32PD flash start key has a built-in 64x64 dot matrix LCD. Since they can show file names, flash starting is as pressing the file name
  • The playlist mode is perfect for flash starting and PPL is also supported: Since these units were developed not only for applications as recorders, but also considering operation as flash start players, a "playlist mode" is included that is an operation mode especially for flash starting
  • Faders support fader-starting and have locks at 0dB: In addition to flash start keys, the RC-HS32PD has a pair of 100mm faders that support fader-starting as a form of transmission control
  • Use in combination with an RC-900 transport controller: While using an RC-HS32PD as a remote control for flash starting, you can also use an RC-900 for control over the transport
  • The definition of "superior operability" depends on the use conditions and the operator. The HS-4000 includes five operation modes in order to respond to various conditions and user needs
  • Real-time operating system (RTOS) created to resist infection and other threats: For the operating system, have adopted a real-time operating system (RTOS) developed for use with real-time applications
  • Multiple remote controllers and a variety of external controls can be used together: You are not limited to just one remote controller or other external controller, but rather you can connect and simultaneously use as many as can be connected to the unit
  • Supports for Gigabit Ethernet enables flexibility and a wide-range of applications: Using a network, even more flexibility and a wider range of applications are possible
  • Focus on quick and stable operation and security to eliminate user stress: In addition to using RTOS, have considered operational security from a variety of angles. ALL of the connectors include locking mechanisms to prevent accidental disconnection
  • Touch-sensitive TFT color displays enable intuitive operation: The graphical user interface shared by the HS-series enables intuitive and straightforward operation. The menus are simple with only one level and you can return to the Home Screen with one touch when you complete making a setting
  • Built-in monitor speaker enable quick confirmations: You can monitor audio even if the RC-HS32PD is located far away from the main unit or console. In addition to monitoring with headphones, these units have built-in speakers, so you can quickly monitor whenever you need to check something
  • Support for VNC and the ability to use connected computers to check and control units: These units support Virtual Network Computing (VNC) over local area networks (LAN)
  • CF cards used recording media (Ultra DMA supported): CF cards that boast high durability because their contracts are not exposed are used for the recording media. High durability also results from using media that do not require rotating mechanisms
  • Since the layout includes one circuit board for each connector, not only do they boast excellent strength against twisting and pulling from cables, interference with other connectors is also suppressed
  • High-durability knobs use metal even in their stems: An aluminum materials is used in the HS-4000 DATA knob to prevent breaking and the reduction of operability due to deterioration. It also makes helpful feedback "clicks" during operation
  • Adopted aluminum side-panels for High-durability (RC-HS32PD): The RC-HS32PD adopted two aluminum side-panels for both side. These side-panels provide high-durability from crashing when moving these units
  • BurrBrown PCM1796 D/A converters and JRC NJM5532 operational amplifier: In these units, used BurrBrown PCM1796 digital to analog converters because they have earned great praise for audio applications
  • Decoupling capacitors that contribute to power supply stability also selected carefully: In audio equipment, a stable power supply is indispensable for providing high audio quality
  • CF cards used as recording media (Ultra DMA supported)
  • Dual CF card slots
  • Confidence monitoring function (playback while recording) can be used when recording two tracks (44.1/48kHz)
  • Simultaneous playback up to 4 tracks or 2 stereo tracks (in dual playlist mode)
  • Five operation modes: timeline, take, single playlist, dual playlist and on-air
