Designed for studio and stage use, the Tascam SERIES 8p Dyna 8-Channel Mic Preamp with Built-In Analog Compressor and Digital I/O is a 1 RU rackmountable mic preamp with selectable analogue compression on each channel, as well as low-noise preamps, dual S/MUX optical ports, and selectable +48V phantom power on a per-channel basis. Because of this, you can use the unit as an expansion device for S/MUX equipped interfaces, as a front-end for DANTE setups, or as a standalone front end.

On the front of the unit, you'll find two combination XLR-1/4" input jacks for mic, line, or instrument usage. The rear provides six more XLR-1/4" combination jacks for line or microphone inputs. You'll also find eight 1/4" line outputs and a DB25 connector for all eight analogue outputs. BNC wordclock I/O and optical ports are found on the rear as well.

The front panel offers individually switched 48V phantom power as well as comprehensive metering via digital peak and level metres. The unit ships with its own power supply.

Key Features:

Features at a Glance
  • 8 HDIA (High Definition Instrumentation Architecture) microphone preamplifiers
  • Single-knob analogue compressor with true bypass, individually assignable to each input channel
  • 2 front-panel instrument (Hi-Z)-microphone combo inputs
  • 6 rear-panel balanced mic/line inputs
  • Individually switched +48V phantom power per channel
  • Dual S/MUX optical outputs: 8 channels at up to 96 kHz; 4 channels at 176.4 or 192 kHz (ADAT compatible)
  • 8 line-level 1/4-inch balanced TRS analogue channel outputs
  • 8 line-level balanced channel outputs on a 25-pin D-Sub connector
  • Wordclock in and out on BNC connectors, with In/Out/Thru switch
  • Front-panel analogue overload indicators, compression indicators, and digital peak and level metre bars
  • Rugged metal 1U rackmount enclosure
Versatile Inputs

With two instrument/microphone combo inputs on the front panel, you can quickly plug in mics, guitars, basses, and more. Six balanced mic/line inputs grace the rear. Every microphone input has individually switchable +48V phantom power, allowing you to operate condenser mics and ribbon mics safely at the same time. Thus, the unit gives you a multipurpose front end for recording and live sound.

Expand Your Existing Interface

Dual S/MUX optical outputs on the rear of the unit enable you to use it as a front end expander for S/MUX-equipped audio interfaces such as TASCAM SERIES 102i and SERIES 208i and Celesonic US-20x20. ADAT compatibility is also available. With two S/MUX outputs, you can send all eight SERIES 8p Dyna channels at up to 96 kHz (four channels at 176.4 or 192 kHz), expanding your existing system's capabilities in the process.

Send to Anything

The SERIES 8p Dyna's eight line-level analogue channel outputs are provided on both 1/4-inch balanced TRS connectors and as a balanced 25-pin D-sub connector. Route signals to interfaces, recording mixers, front-of-house consoles, and pretty much anything else. Connect its D-sub outputs to a TASCAM ML-16D or ML-32D Analogue Dante convertor, and the SERIES 8p Dyna becomes a pristine front end for an audio-over-IP network.

Pro Features

You'll note the rugged metal 1 RU rackmount enclosure, perfectly suited to live use. Wordclock I/O on BNC connectors with an In/Out/Thru switch enable proper synchronisation of digital signals. Front-panel analogue overload indicators, compression indicators, and digital peak and level metre bars let you monitor the unit's performance. Still, the SERIES 8p Dyna is simple to operate, so you can stay focused on the task at hand.
