Tascam Sonicview 16 Digital Mixer with Touch Screens

TASCAM Sonicview 16 makes it easy to see and control all of the parameters you want when you want. Utilise its completely customizable touch screens and user-definable buttons, along with motorized faders and intuitive control software. The Sonicview console integrates beautifully with the rest of your system. This is thanks to built-in Dante networking, a 32-bit/96 kHz multi-channel USB audio interface, built-in multi-track SD recording, and plenty of I/O.

Additionally, no-compromise audio quality, including 54-bit float-point FPGA mixing, combines with ample signal processing. Also, an expansion slot for additional connectivity, and wireless remote control makes TASCAM Sonicview recording mixers a next-generation choice. They are perfect for touring, installed sound, recording studios, and broadcasting.

Choose a Model – 16 or 24

Two TASCAM Sonicview models are available. They differ in frame size and the number of physical inputs, mic preamps, faders, and touch screens. The TASCAM Sonicview 16 offers 16 physical input channels with motorized faders. Also, it features TASCAM’s top-of-the-line Class 1 HDIA microphone preamps. The TASCAM Sonicview 24 provides 24 HDIA microphone preamps.

The TASCAM Sonicview 16, with its smaller frame size, can be rack-mounted. Internally, the architecture of the two models is the same. They have a generous 44 input channels (40 mono channels and 2 stereo channels), 4 stereo FX return channels, 22 flex output buses, and the L/R main bus.

Intuitive Operation at Your Fingertips

The TASCAM Sonicview 16 offers motorized channel faders in two banks of eight. Plus, it has a motorized stereo fader for the main bus. Above each bank of channel faders is a colour touch panel. It allows you to view entire mixer channels, or get down to details, controlling each parameter with your fingertip.

The Amazing VIEW with Sonicview 16

The powerful intuitive TASCAM Visual Interactive Ergonomic Workflow (VIEW) system lets you quickly and easily configure the two touch screens. There are three different ways to view your settings, and each touch screen can be configured independently. Therefore, you can monitor and control any combination of settings you want, on whichever screens you want, whenever you want.

High-end Audio Quality

TASCAM Sonicview delivers the finest audio performance in its class. This is thanks to a 54-bit float-point FPGA mixing engine; continuous, high-definition 32-bit/96 kHz sampling; and 32-bit analog-to-digital converters. The mixing engine’s float-point processing makes it possible to flexibly change levels without compromising resolution.

Also, FPGA mixing engine makes it possible to ensure ultra-low latency, even in analog-to-analog connections. The result is no-compromises performance, including with Dante networks and in-line monitoring systems.

Sonicview 16’s Input Channels and Processing

The TASCAM Sonicview 16 offers 16 channels with XLR mic/line inputs. Or utilise 8 channels with both XLR mic inputs and balanced TRS line inputs. Futhermore, you also get TRS to insert points on two channels, two stereo pairs of RCA aux inputs, and an XLR input for a talkback mic.

Channel Control and Processing

Internally, TASCAM Sonicview recording mixers have a generous 40 mono channels, 2 stereo and 4 stereo FX return channels. Fly in backing tracks to make a small praise band sound huge. Accommodate additional physical audio inputs via the expansion slots for larger ensembles. Manage sources from every part of a venue via the Dante network, and mix dozens of DAW tracks.

Eight DCAs enable you to easily control groups of channels. The programmable layer keys select which custom combination of channels and output buses are controlled by the motorized faders.

Top-of-the-Line Class 1 HDIA Mic Preamps

Each TASCAM Sonicview microphone input feeds a TASCAM Class 1 HDIA (High Definition Instrumentation Architecture) preamp—the finest mic preamp we’ve ever made. Thanks to an instrumentation amplifier with extremely good noise characteristics in the first stage, Class 1 HDIA microphone preamps exhibit excellent EIN, signal-to-noise ratio, distortion ratio, and frequency response.

TASCAM Sonicview ultra-definition mic preamps will pick up the slightest nuance from rosin on a violin bow to the subtle dynamic changes of a voice or saxophone. The mic inputs can accept up to +32 dBu signals, providing plenty of headroom for sudden level increases.

The combination of Class 1 HDIA preamps, 32-bit/96 kHz ADCs, and our 54-bit FPGA mixing engine is impressive but we didn’t stop there: We conducted extensive internal and external evaluations to tune TASCAM Sonicview recording mixers for optimal performance. The result is a best-in-class sound that will never disappoint.

Built-in USB Audio Interface and Stereo Recording

TASCAM Sonicview’s integrated 32-in/32-out USB audio interface makes it a first-rate front end for recording and broadcast studios, as well as for capturing live events. Record your choice of channel direct outs, flex buses, and the L/R main bus to your favourite DAW at up to 96 kHz with the same 32-bit precision used throughout the TASCAM Sonicview.

You can simultaneously capture the main mix directly to the onboard stereo SD/USB recorder — handy when the band wants to listen to their performance at the hotel or on the bus. A top-panel port also lets you record in stereo to a USB flash drive.

Physical Outputs and Expansion Capability

As you’d expect, the TASCAM Sonicview 16 offers plenty of physical outputs, with 16 XLR line outputs, the L/R main outputs, and two XLR monitor outputs. If that’s not enough, you can add more analog outputs, MADI, Dante or AES/EBU I/O with an optional expansion card.

To further expand the system, add one or more optional 16-in/16-out SB-16D Dante-networked stage boxes. Microphone gain for all 16 inputs can be remotely controlled from the TASCAM Sonicview 16, and the SB-16D can be used as a floor box or rack mounted.

Sonicview 16’s Output Buses and Processing

You get a wealth of output buses, with powerful signal processing and flexible routing options. In addition to the main L/R stereo bus, the TASCAM Sonicview 16 provides 22 output flex buses, each of which is configurable as a subgroup, aux, or matrix.

Provide multiple stereo in-ear monitor sub mixes without running short of buses and send them to the analog outputs; create matrix mixes for multiple loudspeaker zones and send over the Dante network for restaurants and worship performances; and more. All output buses have a 31-band graphic EQ, real-time analyzer functions, 4-band parametric EQ, compressor/ducker, delay, plus Solo, Pan, and Mute.

Four additional effects processors can be assigned to any individual mixer channels for even more including an astounding reverb effect.

Dante-enabled for Superior Networking

Dante® audio-over-IP networks integrate thousands of systems TASCAM Sonicview consoles can serve as the audio centre of these systems. That’s thanks to a built-in 64-in/64-out Dante interface that supports Dante Domain Manager and have AES67 and SMPTE ST 2110 interoperability. Two Dante ports enable redundant streams.

Remote Control and Offline Editing

Whether onstage, backstage, in a control room, or at the rear of a concert hall, you’re always in full control. Just connect a Wi-Fi router to the TASCAM Sonicview’s Ethernet port and use free TASCAM Sonicview Control software. Then, manage your TASCAM Sonicview 16 from virtually anywhere in the venue.

Specifically, edit settings offline in advance so you’re ready to go when a session or show begins. Afterwards, make adjustments from the console or from the software.

Work Quickly with Function Keys

TASCAM Sonicview offers intuitive, analog-like operation while providing a variety of convenient digital functions that can be customized as needed. Eighteen user-defined function keys can be assigned to recording with the internal recorder, playback, and more. Several keys are conveniently preassigned to functions such as Sends On Fader and Snapshot Recall but you can reassign them as desired. A footswitch (not included) can be used to tap in delay-time settings.

Clear, Mistake-free Navigation with Sonicview 16

When you’re mixing a show, broadcast, or crucial recording session, you can’t afford to hit the wrong button. TASCAM Sonicview’s mixing surface makes it easy to see at a glance what you’re controlling. Each channel strip includes a channel-name LCD with a full-colour LED.

The User keys feature full-colour LEDs. Therefore, group each input source and function by colour and view them easily. Also, the Solo and Channel Select keys have distinctive shapes, and the Mute key is guarded with a cap. With these features and the customizable touch panels, you always know where you are and what you’re controlling.

External Control, Clocking, and More

In addition to audio I/O, Dante, and USB ports, TASCAM Sonicview has an 8-in/8-out GPIO terminal (on a DB25 connector) for external control, making it suitable for events and relay applications. Furthermore, BNC word clock In and Out/Thru enables digital audio synchronization. Also, an Ethernet port can connect to a Wi-Fi router for wireless control.

Additionally, TASCAM Sonicview also has two TASCAM expansion slots and accepts a selection of expansion cards.

The Music Never Stops

Your business depends on reliable equipment that will stay in service with minimal interruptions, and we designed TASCAM Sonicview accordingly. In fact, TASCAM Sonicview’s mixing engine and real-time operating system are completely separate from the physical mixing surface, greatly improving stability.

In the unlikely event that the mixing surface becomes inoperable, the sound won’t stop. Also, operation can be start again by restarting the control surface operating system. Meanwhile, the show will go on.
