From the model 10 in 1974 to the Portastudio in 79', and the 564 in 1997, Tascam's innovative fingerprints are all over modern content production technology. So it's no wonder the Model-12 has all the bases covered.

Podcasters, Vloggers, Musicians, and creators of all stripes will find everything they need to deliver professional quality content built into the very DNA of the Model-12.

A 12-channel mixer, interface, and recorder with 10 available playback tracks, the Model-12 records WAV files of up to 24-bit/48kHz directly to an SD card so you can capture the moment as it happens, wherever it happens. Prefer tracking straight to your computer? Onboard USB allows direct input to a wide range of standard DAWs (digital audio workstations) for recording and playback. Plus, Model-12 provides control of basic DAW functions like transport, solo, pan, mute, level control, and more, directly from its surface creating a true console workflow.

Six Tascam low noise HD preamps with a wide dynamic range, accurately capture the sonic characteristic of the input. Speaking of inputs, the back panel features 8 balanced XLR/TRS combination jacks for microphones, keyboards, drum machines, etc.... with +48V phantom power provided for condenser mics. All 8 channels are also Hi-Z capable so you can plug in a guitar directly to record clean tones or model it in your DAW. Two additional balanced line inputs are provided on channels 9/10, while two inserts on channels 1/2 beg you to hook up your vintage tube mic pre and compressor to sweeten those tracks!

You need to hear what you're producing, as do the artists. The Model-12 features stereo main and sub outputs, each with dedicated level control, as well as two discrete headphone outputs for separate mixes. You also have access to a pair of auxiliary outputs giving you extreme flexibility adapting to any monitoring situation.

Podcasters and live streamers will appreciate the Bluetooth capability, smartphone input, and mix-minus features, along with multiple mic-ready channels that make it easy to include one or several collaborators.

An all-in-one production solution, the Model-12 comes equipped with a one-knob compressor and EQ on each input channel, and a full palette of digital reverbs on board to help you create professional, deliverable content. PFL/AFL and Solo buttons provide versatile monitoring of single channels or groups when making critical mix decisions. MIDI In/Out, USB MIDI, MIDI Time Code (MTC), and MIDI clock output are integrated to give you even more flexibility when incorporating external gear.

From inspiration to final product, capture it all then put it out there with the Tascam Model-12.
