TASCAM's M-164 series is a lineup of affordable mixers for live bands, home recording or installation. Three models are available to fit your needs:
M-164 • 16-channel mixer
M-164FX • 16-channel mixer with digital effects
M-164UF • 16-channel mixer with effects and USB 2.0 interface
Each of the mixers has six TASCAM mic inputs with XLR ins and phantom power for great-sounding tracks. Mic inputs additionally have 3-band EQ with hipass filters for sculpting the mix. Five stereo line inputs bring the total count to 16 inputs, and several channels add EQ and RIAA phono preamps for adding flexibility. The M-164s have two output busses - main and sub - as well as a pair of aux sends for monitors and effects.
The M-164FX adds a stereo effects processor with 16 programs of reverb, delay, chorus and other great-sounding effects. Step up to the M-164UF for a 16x2 audio interface that works over USB 2.0. The interface built into the M-164UF has the highest channel count of any mixer, allowing all 16 inputs to be recorded to their own track in your computer recording software.
