Tascam 64-track recorder offers Madi and Dante

AUTHOR: Inavate

Tascam has announced the DA-6400 64-track recorder that records to an internal SSD drive caddy for live and event recording.

Professional I/O options including Madi and Dante make it suitable for live recording, event capture, or as a backup for critical DAW sessions. It is available with a single or dual/redundant power supply.

An AK-CC25 hot-swappable caddy containing a 240GB Tascam solid-state drive is included with the product. The caddy includes a USB 3 jack for stand-alone use. The DA-6400 records 64 tracks at 48kHz/24-bit or 32 tracks at 96kHz/24-bit. Included on the rear panel are SMPTE timecode, word clock, RS-422, parallel and Ethernet connections.

I/O options for the DA-6400 include the IF-MA64/EX interface card, with both coaxial and optical Madi connections. This card includes a redundant coaxial connection so that Madi is passed through even if power is lost. Other I/O options include the IF-MA64/BN coaxial Madi card, IF-DA64 Dante card, and IF-AE16 AES/EBU card. Tascam intends to add more in the future.
