Hardware Stability Meets Software Flexibility!

TASCAM's X-48MKII continues in the footsteps of the original X-48 standalone, hybrid hard disk recording workstation. If you're looking for the reliability of a traditional standalone recorder, the stability of hardware construction, and the flexibility of a software editing environment, then the X-48MKII is perfect for you. Simple hardware controls give you up to 48 tracks of traditional tape-style recording that's super-easy to use. A built-in 1TB gives you 48-hour continuous recording. And when you hook up a standard VGA monitor and plug in a mouse, you can take advantage of the TASCAM X-48MKII's amazing GUI, editing, and mixing features.

Versatile hard disk recorder

Far from your average hardware recorder, the TASCAM X-48MKII gives you incredibly flexible recording options. Record at up to 96kHz resolution, without sacrificing channel count. Built-in word clock lets you pair the X-48MKII with high-quality digital devices, such as multichannel preamplifiers. And a full 1TB of hard drive space gives you plenty of recording time. Best of all, the X-48MKII's intuitive front-panel controls make it incredibly easy to use.

Powerful graphical editing

When it comes to editing, setting up punches, and tweaking fine details, nothing beats a comprehensive graphical user interface. That's what TASCAM gave the X-48MKII! Plug in a VGA monitor, and you instantly get access to the X-48MKII's amazing GUI. Not only does the X-48MKII's GUI give you access to a whole range of editing tools, its simple and clean layout makes it easy to use, even if you're not used to working in a traditional DAW. What's more, the X-48MKII's GUI lets you set up advanced routing paths and monitor mixes, letting you get even more out of your recording rig.

Pick the I/O you need

The TASCAM X-48MKII comes loaded with six 8-channel TDIF inputs, giving you instant access to 48-track recording. You also get stereo S/PDIF I/O as well. Two TASCAM option card bays also let you expand your X-48MKII's I/O with analog or AES/EBU connections as well, so you can configure your system exactly the way you like.
