20 IN/8 OUT USB Audio/MIDI Interface

SKU: TASS208I Categories: , , , , , Tag:


A new-generation TASCAM audio interface engine delivers high-definition, 24-bit/192 kHz recording and solid stability.

Well-designed interface for quick production

The SERIES 208i provides eight individual analog outputs for versatile monitoring (up to four stereo pairs of monitor speakers) and surround audio (up to 7.1) for video production.

The SERIES interface has 2 individual headphone amplifiers which offer powerful enough dual headphone monitoring.

TASCAM SERIES audio interfaces feature a large, easy-to-grab Monitor control knob that ensures you can quickly adjust the monitor output level. Their angled tabletop design offers easy access to all front-panel controls. A handy Monitor Balance control enables mixing live input with computer playback for zero-latency monitoring. Each analog input channel is served by an individually switched +48 volt phantom power supply for condenser microphones.

Control Software for Matrix Mixing, Effects Processors, and More

Free, easy-to-use TASCAM Control software manages faders, processing, and the ability to route any audio input (analog, optical, and USB) to any audio output.

Built-in DSP Effects and Processing

A DSP input and output mixer is complemented with digital reverb, compressor, phase invert, and 4-band EQ for each channel. Having these processors included internally eliminates all latency issues and takes the load off the computer allowing the PC/Mac to process the audio more efficiently.

TASCAM SERIES interfaces support tablets and other mobile devices and are compatible with many applications to meet your recording needs now and in the future.

TASCAM SERIES audio interfaces are bundled with world-class software. Record with Steinberg Cubase LE DAW for Windows and Mac computers and Steinberg Cubasis LE DAW for iPad. Then process your audio with IK Multimedia AmpliTube guitar/bass modeling and effects software. Finish your high-quality, polished recording projects with IK Multimedia T-RackS mastering software. Both free standing and plug-in versions of AmpliTube and T-RackS are included.
