Tascam's New FW-1804 18-channel Audio Interface Offers Audio and MIDI Interfacing in a Rackmount Package (1/11/2004)

The latest computer interface solution from TASCAM brings many of the audio and MIDI interface features of the FW-1884 to a rackmountable format with the new FW-1804. It features four great-sounding XLR microphone inputs with analog inserts and phantom power for professional condenser mics. An additional four line inputs are provided, plus ADAT and S/PDIF digital connection for a total of 18 inputs and 12 outputs. Two MIDI inputs and four MIDI outputs round out the interfacing with pro touches like word clock and a guitar-level input. The FW-1804 includes TASCAM's latest software bundle, including 48-track/96k Cubase LE recording software, GigaStudio 3 LE software sampler and dozens of Nomad Factory plug-in demos.

"In some studios, there just isn't room for a big control surface like our FW-1884," declares Jim Bailey, Product Manager for TASCAM. "The FW-1804 fits in any studio, even desktop-challenged home offices. Despite it's small footprint, it enjoys professional features like great-sounding microphone preamps, included 48-track/96kHz recording software, lots of MIDI I/O and a street price around half of some of the other 'pro' solutions."

The FW-1804 is the solution for anyone looking for a universally-supported audio/MIDI interface without the room for a control surface:

18-in/12-out audio interface Records at up to 96kHz/24-bit Four balanced XLR / 1/4" TRS mic/line inputs with phantom power Four balanced 1/4" TRS line inputs 1/4" TRS insert jacks for channels 1-4 S/PDIF and ADAT digital input and output Word clock in and out Balanced 1/4" TRS monitor outputs Headphone output with level control Two MIDI inputs and 4 MIDI outputs Assignable Footswitch jack Includes GigaStudio 3 LE Includes Steinberg Cubase LE 48-track 96kHz workstation software

Also recently announced, the new TASCAM FW-1082 Audio/MIDI Interface and Control Surface features 10 audio inputs and 4 outputs. It has a control surface featuring nine touch-sensitive moving-faders, transport controls, jog/shuttle wheel and four assignable encoders.
