Tascam Portacapture X8  32-Bit Multi-Track Recorder

The Portacapture X8 is TASCAMs New Generation High Resolution Adaptive Multi-Recorder.Featuring 192kHz/ 32-bit floating point recording technology for highest audio quality.

Combined with the recorder’s intuitive Launcher system and the incorporated 3.5-inch color touch panel display, the Portacapture X8 provides users with more time to focus on the actual recording without having to struggle with complicated settings. It uses an app-like set of configurations that optimize the unit for various recording tasks, including multitrack recording, voice capture for interviews, podcasts, music recording, field recording, and ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) for capturing those unusual / sensory related sounds.

The Portacapture X8 comes with two large 14.6mm diameter built-in condenser microphones. With the TASCAM developed HDDA mic preamps, these microphones are well suited for high quality audio recording and can easy be set for A-B and X-Y microphone patterns.

The TASCAM Portacapture X8 provides a wealth of DSP capability that include Compressor, Limiter, Low-Cut Filter, Noise Gate, Reverb, Auto Gain Control, and more.

Wireless remote control is possible via the TASCAM Portacapture Control using the optional AK-BT1 Bluetooth dongle with your Android or iOS device.

With its 2 built-in large format stereo mics, 4 XLR inputs with support for both mic and line-level, AUX-IN, LINE OUT, and CAMERA IN/OUT terminals, the Portacapture X8 provides an abundance of IN/OUT choices for multiple recording scenarios. The 3.5mm CAMERA EXT/IN connector also supports audio input of wireless microphones and more. Additionally, the Portacapture X8 is equipped with a CAMERA/LINE output with an attenuation function that allows for sending audio to external devices such as cameras.

Together with its multitrack record capability of 8 tracks (6 tracks plus 2 mix) and its 8-IN / 2-OUT USB Type C audio interface with support for USB bus power, the Portacapture X8 is a full-featured powerful handheld recorder both on its own or with a computer. Audio monitoring is possible via either the unit’s headphone output or the built-in speaker and the recorder also provides both mark and slate tone functions. Supported recording media includes micro SD, micro SDHC, and micro SDXC cards up to 512GB capacity.
