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.

Exactly What I needed and more

Product Review

The Tascam DA-3000 recorder/ AD DA converter is a lifesaver. I am using it as my stereo mix down recorder Via analog summing. I was just bouncing back into my daw and the playback was not the same as what I was hearing when I was mixing, I was becoming extremely frustrated. So I started looking for solutions. It came down to this or a Burl converter and believe it or not Tascam won. This unit is extremely transparent in as what you hear going in is what you hear on playback. I could not be happier with my decision to purchase this unit. Hey you also get another great stereo DA-AD converter that you can use also

Product Review

I bought this so that I could record all the audio running out of my audio interface (Apogee Ensemble Thunderbolt) at 96kHz/24-bit. Everything about this device screams quality and stability. It is simple, easy to use, and very intuitive. I only checked the manual a few times to check what certain features were. The DA-3000 recorded exactly what I recorded through my interface without any degradation or coloration of audio. You can either record on SD or Compact Flash, then transfer to USB. You can also connect your mixer, audio interface, or other audio device to this via XLR, 1/4”, RCA, or SPDIF connection (I use SPDIF). The DA-3000 immediately recognized my interface, and recording was as simple as pushing record and play. I love it. There are a ton more features I haven’t even gone through yet.
