From Our Research Team:
48-input Digital Mixer!More channels. More inputs. The new TASCAM DM-3200 has more of everything that made the DM-24 a pedigreed studio workhorse, plus an improved physical interface with per-channel multi-function LED ring encoders, more comprehensive DAW control, vastly improved routing flexibility, easier and robust data backup/ restore, greatly expanded mix storage using compact flash media and much more. With the DM-3200, TASCAM brings the functionality of a big console to the world of DAWs. You can't go wrong with the DM-3200!
TASCAM DM-3200 At-a-Glance:
When you're tracking a band in your studio, there are certain features that musicians and producers demand from a recording console. The DM-3200 gives you eight aux sends so that you can give individual cue mixes to each musician and have some left over to buss to the two built-in effects. It has a professional control room section with talkback mic and slate functions as well as three playback source selection switches.
For recording large ensembles you get 16 microphone preamps, each with analog insert, phantom power (selectable in groups of four) and a -20dB pad switch. Four assignable analog inputs are provided, for inserting your favorite tube compressor on a console channel, or you can use the 4-band EQ and dynamics found on every channel.
When the sound is dialed in, send that channel to its own track with the Direct button or combine inputs to the 16 busses. There are plenty of digital and analog I/O options to combine stand-alone hard disk recorders (like the TASCAM X-48), analog tape recorders or computer-based DAW recorders. The affordable DM-3200 handles all of the routing and bussing you need in a professional studio, allowing you to concentrate on running your session.
Post Production and Game Production
Mixing inside of a computer is difficult enough in stereo, and when you start working on surround projects, managing and monitoring all of the ins and outs becomes more like air traffic control. The DM-3200 becomes your control center for mixing large projects with dozens of channels. It can mix your tracks with one snapshot, and with two button presses you're ready to transfer them to a dubber or video deck.
Just connect your DAW interface, like Digidesign's 192 Digital I/O for Pro Tools, to one of the digital connections on the rear panel (or use our optional IF-FW/DM FireWire interface card). The DM-3200 even acts as a HUI controller for Pro Tools, allowing you to mix some channels in the DAW and others in the console.
The DM-3200 is an outstanding choice for mixing in surround, with 5.1 and even 6.1 automated panning. The 16 busses become two surround busses in surround mode, allowing you to buss channels to discrete stems. The optional IF-SM/DM Surround Monitoring card provides downmixing to stereo, individual output solo/mute and bass management features to the console.
Live Sound and House of Worship
Like the DM-24, the DM-3200 makes a reliable choice for sound reinforcement. Its 16 mic inputs give you plenty of channels for performances or services, and more mic inputs can be added as needed using external rackmount preamps with digital outputs. Each of the 32 channels features four-band parametric EQ, gating and compression processing. Two built-in effects processors can access a variety of great-sounding effects processors, including a reverb processor by TC Works.
If you're the one installing the DM-3200 into a facility, you can program a variety of settings and back up your programs to a Compact Flash card. Recalling snapshots is done using dedicated buttons on the front panel, so loading a mixer setting is as simple as changing channels on a TV remote. The rear panel of the DM-3200 is well-stocked with balanced and digital I/O, allowing ample connectivity to crossovers, as well as CD and cassette recorders such as our popular CC-222 mkII.
Project Studio Recording
Add the optional IF-FW/DM interface card to the DM-3200, and it becomes the ultimate computer interface and mixing surface for your workstation software. The IF-FW/DM allows a single FireWire cable to transmit 32 channels from your computer to the DM-3200 and another 16 channels back to the computer for recording. Using this expansion card, no other interface or hardware is needed for recording to a computer.
The DM-3200 has a fader layer, labeled 'Remote', that's dedicated to controlling the mixing facilities in your DAW software. There are two modes of control: Mackie Control and Mackie HUI emulation. The DM-3200's solid transport keys can be mapped to your software in any fader layer, and adjustments to your software mixer is a fader layer away. The DM-3200 + IF-FW/DM combination gives you the best of both worlds: computer recording and DAW control with world-class mixing, automation and monitoring features.

Preamps are great, AD DA is great, the control surface using HUI is great too.
I have mainly been using this board with a Pro Tools HD system. I have had a 192 Digital connected to the board through the TDIF connections and it has worked flawlessly.
This board has been an awesome board to grow into through the few years as I have purchased high end outboard gear as well as a Lynx Aurora 16 and etc. But I have to say, that when I compared the high end Preamps and converters to this board, I realized how good these preamps and converters really are. Sure, the outboard preamps and converters are still better, but the gap between them are probably a lot smaller than most people would expect.
Teamed up with an Argosy desk, this board feels and looks expensive which has been a big part of convincing clients to use my studio.
If I was making the decision all over again, I would definitely purchase again. close [-]

Awesome Board for both Live and Studio. close [-]

It is impressive to clients for smaller budget studios. I had a client ask me if it was more expensive than my house.
The biggest downside is that it is from Tascam. The word is that their support is suppose to be getting better. I hope so. I purchased this board the end of June with a firewire card. I haven't had any problems with the board yet, but all stores are still waiting on the firewire cards and I am hoping that they will actually arrive the week of October 15th, 2006. However, they have changed their date so many times on us, I will believe it when I see it. I understand that they have had problems supplying the firewire cards before in the past. So if it is critical to have the card, make sure they are actually available before depending on it. close [-]
Unbelievably hard to beat! $3K for a mixer that sounds 10 times more expensive. This mixer does it all, digitally! Whew! (My hint - Get the meter bridge, it reminds you that you are not dreaming.)
