Tascam DA-6400 overview
The DA-6400 from Tascam is a 64-channel digital multitrack recorder/player that records to an internal SSD caddy for live and event recording. With I/O options like MADI and DANTE, it is ideal for live recordings, event capture, or to a backup for critical DAW sessions. In addition, the DA-6400 is a suitable option for professional remote recording.
Furthermore, the recorder/player features an AK-CC25 hot-swappable caddy containing a 240GB Tascam solid-state drive, and the caddy includes a USB-3 jack for stand-alone use. This allows you to hand the drive to the client to offload the BWAV-files into their DAW session. The DA-6400 records 64 tracks at 48 kHz/24-bit or 32 tracks at 96 kHz/24-bit. Also, included on the rear panel are SMPTE timecode, word clock, RS-422, parallel, and Ethernet connections.
The I/O options for the DA-6400 include the IF-MA64/EX interface card (sold separately), with both coaxial and optical MADI connections. This card contains a redundant coaxial connection so that MADI is passed through even if power is lost, making it an ideal backup recorder for DAW sessions. Additional cards (sold separately) include the IF-MA64/BN coaxial MADI card, IF-DA64 Dante card, and IF-AE16 AES/EBU card, with more to come.
In conclusion, the Tascam DA-6400 combines high performance, flexibility, and complete reliability in a solid-state 64-track recorder.
