The TASCAM MX-8A is a Matrix Mixer equipped with 8 mic / line inputs and 8 line outputs as well as integrated DSP for audio optimization in various environments and configurations. Custom control apps are also available to allow easy setup and adjustment by both system integrators and end users.

Source selection, volume adjustment, and mute functions can be remotely changed with the external wall-mount programmable controllers RC-W100-R120 and RC-W100-R86. Both controllers are equipped with one LCD display, an encoder and 4 switches. Up to 8 units of RC-W100-R120 or RC-W100-R86 can be installed with one TASCAM MX-8A.

* RC-W100-R120 and RC-W100-R86 are optional accessories, sold separately.

The TASCAM MX-8A is possible to mix mic and playback equipment audio signals into 8 different zones. This function can be used in installation systems for small to medium scale stores, restaurants or banquet rooms, etc.

The onboard DSP provides a full set of audio processing for mic and line inputs including Compressor, 4 parametric EQ, auto level, ducking and more. On line level outputs, the DSP delivers 10 band EQ, high pass filters, low pass filters, delay and limiter effects.
