2007-03-30 - TASCAM'S DM-3200 CONSOLE NOW SHIPPING!

Features 48-Channel Mixing, Powerful DSP and Integration with DAW Recording Systems

Montebello, CA (August 31, 2005): TASCAM is pleased to announce the DM-3200, an all-new 48-channel professional digital console, is now shipping. Boasting an impressive list of specs competitive with consoles twice its price - and based on the DM-24 in operational ease-of-use - the DM-3200 adds more busses, more effects, more auxes, USB connectivity and many other new features. Its user interface includes 16 rotary encoders with LED indicators to display mixer settings at a glance. Up to 6.1 surround panning is available, and the optional IF-SM/DM Surround Monitoring interface card adds multichannel monitor, bass management and downmix capabilities. When support for the optional IF-FW/DM 24-channel FireWire interface card becomes available in the coming weeks, the DM-3200 will be the most powerful all-in-one computer interface, control surface and mixing console available anywhere, making it ideal for professional recording, post-production, film scoring and installation applications. An optional meter bridge, the MU-1000, is also available.

"We wanted to make sure everything was just right," says Jim Bailey, Product Manager for TASCAM, "before unleashing the DM-3200 on the world. It's not enough anymore to build a console with lots of inputs, effects and automation. Although the DM-3200 excels in all of these, today's engineers demand seamless integration between the mixing surface and computer workstation recording software. With its tightly integrated control surface features, the DM-3200 provides the functions that professionals working in combined hardware & software studios demand. This digital console addresses the way modern studios work."
