Tascam Model 12 Mixer

Tascam's Model 12 is a compact all-in-one integrated mixer designed for music and multimedia creators, songwriters and performers. Features include Tascam's critically acclaimed multi-track recorder, USB audio/MIDI interface, DAW control functions, and unique podcasting capability including mix-minus and smartphone inputs. The Model 12 supports your creative process, production, and workflow from start to finish including podcasting.

22-Track Multi-Track Recording with 10 Track Playback

The Model 12's intuitive internal 12-track recorder records WAV files of up to 24-bit/48 kHz audio quality directly to an SD card, with 10-track playback. Supporting metronome, punch-in/out, and overdubbing functions, the internal recorder also allows WAV files to be imported directly into a DAW for further editing or production.

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 DAWs.

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 DAWs.

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.

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.

Stream 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.

Compact Size with Plenty of Inputs

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.

Dual Headphone Monitor

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

Features:

- 8 XLR mic inputs (with +48V support) / 10 TRS line inputs, 3.5 mm (1/8") stereo input and Bluetooth(R) 5.0 input

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
Overall: My main use is for a personal mini home studio. After extensive research, the Model 12 checked all the boxes. I wanted an analog style mixer, onboard recorder and audio interface with the ability to complete projects with minimal computer based DAW interaction. The DAW controller is a pretty nice feature but was not very important for me and neither was the MIDI capability. I am an amateur at using a computer based DAW so the Model 12 was perfect as to not limit me from that. Without a DAW, I can still make studio quality recordings but I can still use a DAW to tweak if I choose to. As a mixer, recorder & audio interface, it's fantastic. As a DAW controller it works perfect as long as you use a compatible DAW. Tascam has a separate downloadable DAW controller manual on their website that tells you which DAW's work. Download it + download the user manual before you buy it and you can see and learn about the unit. Also, physically it's built like a tank. It's metal construction and it's heavy. Anything else that competes is all plastic. If you are a beginner, you need to read everything about it before you get it working. Don't expect to take it out of the box and for everything to run on Autopilot. It won't do that, this is professional level equipment that has a learning curve. That learning curve in invaluable though because you will really learn how to record & mix. Plenty of info online if you look up the Model 16 & 24. This is a small version of the model 16 & 24 that includes midi + DAW controller. The model 12 has only been on the market for 6 months and the other ones have been around for almost 2 years. So you can't expect a huge amount of user information about the model 12 yet. If you download the audio driver + update it to the latest firmware, it will do exactly what it's supposed to do. Also, you need to use an SD card from the list of Tascam tested cards and format it in the machine. If you dont, you might get errors and freezes. It also helps that any of these machines work better with smaller cards. I use 32 gig Transcend SDHC cards and they work perfect. Remember: Update the firmware, download the Audio driver, buy a smaller size Tascam tested SD card and make sure you format it with the Tascam Model 12, verify that your DAW is compatible (if you wan't to use the DAW controller feature) and it should work as advertised.

Overall: I am really enjoying my Model 12. I've had it about 6 months now, and I still am amazed at the ease of use and the excellent quality. I love being able to punch in and out of record with a footswitch like the old days, and my workflow has gotten so much simpler and I find I am actually completing projects now, where before the complexity of DAW slowed me down. The quality of the sliders and buttons and knobs is first rate, the mic pre's are excellent, clean and quiet; the effects are usable. It's a great mixer for a live show too and I can record everyone on their own track, which is pretty amazing not having to use a computer. The more I use this thing, the more I like it and appreciate all the little touches and features that were added to make this so versatile. Not missing my Audient interface at all! I've been recording since the cassette 4 track days, so ease of use for me was pretty much point and shoot once I got used to the live/mode/mtr switch, (remembering to put it in the right place for the function at hand) and the manual is well written for the more in depth functions. It looks, WOW. and is a great value. Where else can you get a mixer with 8 hi Z inputs?
