Upgraded User Interface
With the goal of making a high-quality audio recorder and ADDA converter easy to use, Tascam designed the front panel with all of the necessary external controls and included long, brightly lit meters and display. The 128x64 OEL display allows you to check necessary information quickly, and the 24-dot level meters allows you to confidently monitor levels at all times.

Simultaneous Multitrack Recording and Playback
You can synchronize the operation of multiple DA-3000 units by interconnecting their digital inputs and outputs. Files that have been recorded in sync will have sample-level synchronization as well. In addition to stereo DSD recording of Jazz and classical music, this also makes simple DSD multitrack recording of bands possible.

AD Converter for Mastering
This unit can also be used as a high-quality AD converter at the end of an analog mastering chain. The fully-balanced, low noised circuitry and the high-quality AD circuitry convent the carefully adjusted audio using analog EQs and compressors into digital signals without sound degradation.

Simultaneous Master File Recording
At the same time that you record a PCM master file (16-bit/44.1kHz) in software using a DAW system, you can also make a high sampling frequency PCM/DSD recording by connecting the DA-3000 directly to an analog mixer. By capturing two types of digital master recordings, you will be ready for future post-recording needs.

DSD Multitrack Recorder
Utilizing the DA-3000's clock precision, DSD multitrack recording is possible using multiple units. Since the DA-3000 can record two mono files instead of a stereo file, 8 units could be used together for 16-tracks of recording. Connecting the COAXIAL jacks is the only necessary connection between the units.

DA Converter for a PA/SR Digital Console
In recent years, digital consoles are being used increasingly in PA and sound reinforcement roles. By connecting the digital outputs of such a console to this unit you can upgrade the hall sound to an even higher quality. Since the DA-3000 has an OEL display and level meters with high visibility, you can check the signal status in the dark even from a distance.
