Integrated Production Suite


Model 12

Desktop Tool for Music and Multimedia Creators

Firmware V1.2 released


New functions: OUTPUT DELAY function


Audio delay compensation can now be adjusted for the MAIN mix USB and analog MAIN (XLR jacks, headphone monitoring) outputs.

An All-in-One production Mixer for Music and Multimedia Creators, Songwriters and Performers.

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.


Output Delay for Synchronized Audio/Video Streaming

Model 12

The output delay creates stable sync between streamed audio and video for all networks and video systems. The easy set-up enables dual Audio Delay for both the USB and Main outputs (Main output can be selected On/Off). In addition, you can monitor the output delay signal by headphones if you choose Main output On.

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.


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.

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.

The VAMP Playback function gives a seamless loop playback between two selected points in a song, enabling interactive live playback for extended solos/jams, and repeated playback of selected track only. It can be also used for personal practice and band rehearsals to enhance the user’s performance.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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