The Tascam X48 is the world’s first standalone 48-track hybrid hard disk workstation. It integrates the best of both worlds: the stability and ease-of-use of a purpose-built hard disk recorder, and the editing features and plug-in compatibility of a computer-based digital audio workstation. Yet the X48 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 complete integrated workstation.
Tascam X48 Hybrid Hard Disk Workstation
The X48 boasts 96kHz/24-bit recording across all 48 tracks and 192kHz across 24 tracks. Its file compatibility and synchronization surpass even the TEC Award-winning MX-2424, with Broadcast WAVE and OMF import and export for compatibility with workstations like Pro Tools®. Support for FireWire hard drives and Gigabit Ethernet allows simple transfer between systems, making it the ultimate multitrack solution for high-quality music, post and live recording applications.
