About: Tascam HS-8 8-Track Solid State Recorder

TASCAM's HS-8 is the first solution for professional multi-channel recording and playback using solid-state media. From studio surround recording to post production playback of HS-P82 location recordings, the HS-8 fits a variety of multi-channel roles. Also true to TASCAM tradition, audio is top-quality throughout with up to 192kHz/24-bit recording.

Like the HS-P82, the HS-8 uses a color touch-screen interface to access settings and tracks. A mixer is built-in for monitoring, and the stereo mix can be recorded live as a separate track. Audio is recorded as Broadcast WAV files to Compact Flash media, with SMPTE timecode available on various interfaces. The RC-HS20PD remote control allows operation from a separate room over RJ-45 connection.

TASCAM's HS-8 is very versatile, with the instant access, ease-of-use, and sound quality studio and post professionals demand.
