About Tascam HS-8

The Tascam HS-8 is a professional solid-state 8-channel audio recorder that offers a wealth of features in a compact rack mountable design. The HS-8 can record 4 channels of Broadcast WAV files at rates up to 24-bit/192kHz and 8 channels at up to 24-bit/96kHz for any professional application. It can also record 8 channels, plus a stereo mix track at 44.1 or 48kHz resolution. The files also have iMXL metadata for professional logging and editing. Files are captured to widely-available CompactFlash cards for terrific reliability. A pair of CF slots is provided, allowing you to make a continuous recording when one card fills up, or to make mirror recordings. A front-panel headphone jack is provided for quick and easy monitoring.

The recorder has analog and digital 25-pin input and output connectors, as well as analog and digital stereo XLR I/O for channels 1 and 2 and 8-channel ADAT digital optical I/O, letting you connect to virtually any professional sound system or device. The recorder's front panel features a large color TFT touch screen that gives you dynamic feedback and control. Fully-equipped to handle any pro-level task, the HS-8 features a video/word clock BNC input, a BNC word clock out/thru connector and BNC SMPTE timecode I/O. A variety of control connectors are provided, including a PS/2 keyboard input, RS-422/RS-232C serial control input, a parallel control port, an RJ-45 LAN control and an RC-HS20PD remote input.
