TASCAM Portacapture X8

Grab high-quality recordings anywhere with Tascam's Portacapture X8, a compact and portable multi-track recorder with loads of controls to handle any kind of audio scenario. Sporting a touch-screen interface with easy to use transport controls, the Portacapture X8 is capable of handling any type of content or music you'd like to record with several different preset settings designed for podcasts, field recording, live music, and even ASMR. Of course, you can always dive deep into input and configuration settings to support your mic and line-level inputs, be it by applying phantom power, additional gain, or even track panning.

The two top microphones feature high quality condenser-style capsules with flexible head positioning for grabbing A/B and X/Y patterns, and since they're detachable via 1/8" TRS jacks, it is easy to substitute them for a lavalier mic or other input. The four combo XLR/TRS inputs can easily handle mic and line level devices for setting up multi-mic podcasts, room recordings, or whatever you may need. All of Portacapture X8's inputs plus a stereo mix down can be recorded in multi-track format straight to an SD card or over USB-C to any computer with no driver needed, and auxiliary mini-jack I/O makes interfacing straight to a camera a breeze.

Portacapture X8 can handle sample rates up to 192kHz for fantastic use in pitch shifting or just to capture pristine highs. Because it utilizes a dual A/D conversion as well as 32-bit floating point bit-depth, you can be sure the Portacapture X8 will record with a low chance of distortion and capture a wide range of dynamic performance. Supporting an optional Bluetooth adapter to interface with a mobile device for remote control, the Tascam Portacapture X8 is a highly capable multi-track recorder for those looking to add high quality audio in any setting.
