Man using the Integrated Production Suite

12 in / 10 Out USB Audio Interface for DAW Connectivity

An onboard USB Type-C connector facilitates connecting a computer to the Model 12 for playback and recording utilizing a wide range of popular DAW's.

DAW Control Integration

Basic external DAW control (Faders, Mutes, Pans, Solos, Record arm, Play, Record, Stop, FF/Rew, Jog) using HUI/MCU protocol emulation is integrated for tactile control of most major DAW's.

Onboard MIDI Functionality

Standard MIDI in/out connectors allow connection with a wide range of keyboards, drum machines, controllers, and other sources that employ MIDI connectors. The Model 12 can also be used for synchronized operation of multi-track recorders and other external devices like drum machines.

Click Output with TAP TEMPO

A dedicated click output with TAP TEMPO allows the tempo to be monitored in both live or recording environments. This allows live performers to play with tracks using the built-in multi-track engine or music creators to monitor the tempo when recording.

Podcast Your Latest Music and Live Performances to Your Fan Base

The Model 12 incorporates several features for podcasting and internet streaming like mix-minus, smartphone input, multiple mic-ready channels, Bluetooth pairing, dual headphone monitoring, and internal multi-track recording. Use the Model 12 as a versatile live production recorder, USB audio interface and live streaming tool.

All in One Production From Recording to Mastering

The Model 12's seamless integrated workflow facilitates less focus on the technical and more on the creative. The comfortable, familiar feel of the Model 12's 60mm faders and 1-knob compressor, 3-band EQ, and TASCAM’s high-quality reverb effects allow fast tweaking of mixes and tones.

Pristine Audio Quality

TASCAM's Ultra-HDDA (High Definition Discrete Architecture) mic preamps with EIN (Equivalent Input Noise) of -128dB ensure natural low noise and high-grade sound quality. Additionally, Hi-Z line level inputs are included on all channels for direct instrument input.

Dual Headphone Monitor

Top-panel accessible dual headphone jacks allow monitoring of two discrete headphone mixes simultaneously for performers and engineers alike.

The compact Model 12 packs 8 XLR mic inputs (with +48V support), 10 TRS line inputs, a 3.5mm (1/8") TRRS input (for Smartphone) and Bluetooth 5.0 input to handle any small format recording or live production environment.

Versatile Routing for Perfecting Your Mix

Selectable PFL/AFL modes and solo in place (SIP) allow for flexible monitoring of individual channels, eliminating the need to mute each single channel when dialing in the perfect mix.
