Tascam are now shipping their 24-bit/96kHz ready DM-24 Digital Mixing Console. We saw it at the show and were pretty impressed. The board comes with 16 analog mic/line inputs as standard, 24 channels of TDIF, 8 ADAT (24-bit), 2x AES and SPDIF. Compared to the ageing but industry standard Yamaha O2R console, the DM-24 is bristling with control options. As well as the four POD parameter controllers, you also have the v-pot controls for EQ and pan. Also there But what may swing it for a lot of users is the ability to control many tape, HD or sequnecer transport functions via the built in transport control. The output of which can transmit, DTRS, ADAT and MMC (midi) control. Other selling points include the built in DSP board that has algorythms from TC|Works, and Antares. When quizzed, it appeared that the same technology that power the TC|Works PowerCore board (see review). TC provide the hi quality reverbs and Antares the mic and speaker modelling. The flexible internal routing allows you to assign any of the four aux send/return i/os to either classic fx send setups or to use them as insert points for the digital channels or even mix inserts. Each channel boast dynamic processors, channels 1-16 also have a gate/expander. The other nifty function is the inclusion of a digital (stored with a patch) input trim. So you don't have to write down all the trim settings with each stored desk setup. This desk looks like it really could give Yamaha a run for their money and is unashamedly aiming straight for their market share. The price? A bargain £2499 UKP.
