X-48MKII - 48-Track Hybrid Hard Disk Workstation

This model has been discontinued. It has been replaced with the DA-6400.


TASCAM'S new X-48mkII is the new and improved version of the original X-48 - the world's first standalone 48-track Hybrid Hard Disk Workstation (co-developed with SaneWave). The X-48mkII continues to integrate the best of both worlds: the stability and ease-of-use of a purpose-built hard disk recorder, with the GUI, editing and mixing features of a computer-based digital audio workstation. The X-48mkII goes beyond mere standalone recorders with a built-in, automated 48-channel digital mixer and powerful editing functions. Plug in a VGA monitor, mouse and keyboard for editing, track naming and monitor mixing - the ultimate multi-track solution for premium quality music, post and live recording applications.

It boasts up to 96kHz/24-bit recording across all 48 tracks. Its file compatibility and synchronization surpass even the TEC Award-winning MX-2424, with native Broadcast WAVE audio file support and AAF export for compatibility with workstations like Pro Tools®, Nuendo and Logic. Support for eSATA hard drives and Gigabit Ethernet allows simple transfer between systems, making it the ultimate multi-track solution for high-quality music, post and live recording applications.

The X-48mkII goes beyond mere standalone recorders -- its built-in, automated 48-channel digital mixer, VGA display output, powerful editing functions and DVD+RW backup drive transform it into a completely integrated workstation.
