    Product Description

    The TASCAM FW-1082 Audio/MIDI Interface and Control Surface provides tons of audio and MIDI I/O for small studios, and it also offers a control surface with moving-faders - all for a previously unheard-of price. The FW-1082 features 10 inputs, including four balanced XLR mic inputs with phantom power. Two MIDI inputs and outputs are also included, plus S/PDIF digital I/O. Eight channel strips each feature a 60mm touch-sensitive moving fader and select/solo/mute buttons, and a moving master fader is also provided. The FW-1082 includes the latest TASCAM software bundle: Cubasis LE 96kHz/48-track recording software and Nomad Factory plug-in demos.

    The FW-1082 is an all-in-one solution for your computer-based digital audio workstation system. Its integrated design incorporates a high resolution professional multi-channel audio interface and integrated zero-latency input monitor mixer, a 2 x 2 MIDI interface, and a highly programmable, ergonomically designed control surface for your audio software.

    The FW-1082 is designed to be the nerve center of your digital audio environment. Its versatile control surface features nine touch-sensitive motorized faders, transport and multi-function controls for direct, immediate communication between your audio software and you. Its full complement of analog mic and line inputs and S/PDIF inputs and outputs provides a high resolution, 24-bit audio front end for input and output of your digital audio workstation. Its integrated free-standing mixer provides the connectivity you need for your entire studio, and it connects to your Windows PC or Mac with a single FireWire connection.

Its four microphone inputs, two with analog insert jacks, have phantom power for professional condenser microphones. Four additional line inputs and a S/PDIF stereo input add up to 10 inputs simultaneously, each at 96kHz/24-bit audio resolution. Two MIDI inputs and outputs are provided for 32 channels of MIDI synth playback or control. The control surface has nine 60mm touch-sensitive moving faders for silky-smooth control over channel level, pan or aux settings. Four encoders are also available for mix control, as well as transport and jog/shuttle controls. Stereo monitoring is included, and the FW-1082 even mixes signals internally for stand-alone use.
