564 Digital Portastudio

The Digital 4 Track With A Whole Lot More
Youve heard all the hype. Digital this. Digital that. All of it beyond the scope of your wallet. No more! TASCAMs all-new 564 Digital Portastudio delivers digital audio recording, flexible and intuitive signal routing, MIDI Machine Control (MMC) capability and the operational ease-of-use that TASCAM Portastudios have long been famous for all in a cost-effective package that will keep you smiling project after project. Geared toward the musician who desires fast and flexible editing control, this exciting new MiniDisc recorder provides numerous random access functions including instantaneous locate capability, erase, copy, Black Out, Bounce Forward and a multitude of additional new features to make those recording sessions hassle-free and better sounding than ever. Of course, the new 564 comes with TASCAM quality, reliability and innovation. Its built tough, It always works its what musicians have come to rely on from TASCAM.
MD Data The New Media For The Next Generation
MiniDisc (MD) is rapidly becoming the media of choice for numerous professional audio applications including broadcast, multimedia, theatrical and music environments. The MD Data format is a highly robust, optical media capable of handling 140MB (megabytes) of digital data great for all your multitrack recording needs. And, its highly transportable youll be able to remove, transport and archive your work as easily as working with tape. No complicated off-loading to free up a hard disk for the next project simply pop in another MiniDisc and youre ready for that next session! Each inexpensive MD Data disc provides roughly 37 minutes of 4-track recording time.
The Only MD Multitrack With A Transport Designed For Multitrack Recording
Unlike other MD multitrack recorders, the 564 uses a custom designed transport optimized for multitrack recording. You wont find a PAUSE key on the 564 because its not needed! The 564 is always in Ready mode! This custom transport delivers faster data loading, better shuttle capability and the ability to reposition

index points without the buffer limitation imposed by other units. This unique transport mechanism is also the reason that numerous editing functions exist on the 564 and nowhere else. Your work will proceed faster and with far less interruption of the creative process. When your music is on the line, why settle for anything less?
Digital Portastudio provides you with a big, easy-to-get-yourhands-on Jog/Data control that makes your work fast and effortless. Its easy to name all your various song components and keep tabs on all your musical elements. Name songs, the disc, patterns (segments of a track) youre in control. Bottom line the 564 has all the right stuff!
The Functionality of a Pro Studio
All the features youd expect to find in the 564 Digital Portastudio are here. Auto Punch In/Out with rehearsal, 3-band EQ with sweepable mids, two AUX sends, two Insert points for additional signal processors, 4 mono channels, 4 stereo channels, balanced XLR inputs for use with high quality, professional, low impedance microphones plus a rotary control for jog and data entry functions. Weve got more XLRs, more flexible EQ, more AUX sends and the first four channels enable you to double the number of mix positions at mixdown. With the 564, you even get a dedicated 2 track return. Check the facts you wont find these features elsewhere! The 564s integrated mixer provides a truly musical 3-band EQ with sweepable mids that let you zero in on exactly the frequency youre looking to alter. Add to this 4 mono channels and 4 stereo channels and youve got inputs-a-plenty. Youll certainly appreciate the 4 balanced XLR mic inputs for use with that professional microphone youve had your eye on other MD multitracks either have none or only two. With the 564s Auto Punch capability, you can replace small segments of material hands-free while the recorder does all the work! This great feature keeps you focused on the creative task as opposed to being distracted by having to operate the recorder. You can rehearse to your hearts content, and when youre ready to give it your best shot, one more button press makes it all happen. Should you change your mind as you work, youll really appreciate the 564s UNDO/REDO capability. With the 564 you can exercise this capability any time you deem necessary. Dont like that take? Undo it! Change your mind? Redo it! Its that easy! Making precision edits or naming songs and patterns couldnt be easier. While were on the subject of naming, the 564 even gives you more characters than other MD multitracks as well as 10 User Words. User Words are preset names (all of which are editable) to save you time while naming song elements! The 564

MD Delivers Editing Control You Never Dreamed Possible
MiniDisc technology enables users of the 564 Digital Portastudio to have tremendous editing control over their recordings. The 564 provides the ability to locate to any point instantly. Unwanted material can easily be erased. By placing an index marker, you can divide one segment into two, or even combine two segments into one by removing the index marker. Songs can be divided into as many as 20 Patterns by placing a series of Index markers throughout the song. Thats more index points than youll find on other MD multitracks. All patterns and songs can be named, and you can even rearrange your music with a hot new feature called Index Programming. Index programming lets you reorder the series of patterns youve created within your composition. With our Index Programming, youve got 99 elements with which to rearrange your song. You wont find this elsewhere! Turn a four measure intro into an 8 measure intro or shorten a guitar solo with the 564, you call the shots. With the Black Out feature, you can instruct the 564 to terminate playback at any position just prior to an index marker to create a new ending without destroying the remaining data. Creative flexibility abounds with the 564. Youll love the fact that when using Auto Punch, the 564 enables you to record up to 5 takes of a given track. Imagine capturing as many as five takes of a guitar solo before you decide which one is best. Now, you can sit back, listen to all 5 takes plus the original performance, and then commit the best performance to a track. Not all MD multitracks offer this 5 take capability! While youre rehearsing a section of material, the 564 even provides you with the ability to define the Repeat Interval so that you can get repositioned prior to each new loop. Again the 564 gives you the best tools for the job!
Conventional Ping Pong Of Course! Bounce Forward WOW!!
The 564 Digital Portastudio provides conventional Ping Pong Recording as well as the all new Bounce Forward function. Bounce Forward enables you to create a series of submixes, complete with effects and EQ, and carry that stereo mix forward to the next song location on disc. Should you later decide to go back to the original tracks, youll be glad to know that they are still on disc in the original location! A limitation of earlier cassette multitrack recorders was the necessity of bouncing (or ping-ponging) multiple tracks down to one for the purpose of freeing up additional track space for more musical parts. While this function works well and serves many useful purposes, the creation of a single mono track reduces ones freedom in terms of stereo imaging. On the 564, you have the ability to ping-pong tracks when they are musically similar and likely to share the same position in the stereo field, but you also have the flexibility to create a series of submixes, complete with EQ and effects to preserve the stereo imaging of your composition at its current state of development. Each MD Data disc has the capacity to handle 5 songs (or file names). These five files can be completely different songs or they can be five versions of the same project and this is where the Bounce Forward function enters the picture. Think of Bounce Forward as the ability to perform a series of submixes, complete with EQ and effects to contour your sound. Perhaps youve just completed your basic rhythm tracks (piano, bass, drums, rhythm guitar) on tracks 1 - 4. Rather than pingpong, you can mix (or bounce forward) your rhythm tracks to a stereo mix on tracks 1 and 2 of file #2. In the process, youve freed up two more tracks for further recording while retaining the stereo mix and the original stereo imaging of each individual track. The Bounce Forward function has the capability of providing 12 first-generation musical parts by the completion of the fifth song file while retaining access to all original tracks. Remember, you can easily rehearse the mix as much as you like before recording it to the tracks so theres plenty of opportunity to listen and get it right. If, however, you decide you want to start over, just return to file #1 and retrieve the original four tracks. Youve lost nothing! The creative possibilities for conventional ping-pong recording and the new Bounce Forward function make multitrack recording on the new 564 exciting and ripe with opportunity for artistic expression.

MIDI Users Take Note Support For MIDI Machine Control
If youre a MIDI user, you can use your MMC (MIDI Machine Control) capable sequencer to control numerous functions of the 564. Finally, your recorder and MIDI system are locked and controlled from one convenient station and you wont sacrifice a track for sync code! The 564 Digital Portastudio provides MIDI In, Out and Thru jacks for flexible integration into any MIDI environment. All the major software-based MIDI sequencing applications now support MMC. Regardless of computer platform, you can now
integrate your MIDI system with the 564 and control the entire system right from the computer! Instruct your sequencer to locate to measure #67 and the 564 positions itself accordingly. When you reach the end of the song, the computer stops both the 564 and the MIDI system. MMC makes the integration of recorder and MIDI system a breeze enabling you to take advantage of the strengths of each system. The new 564 Digital Portastudio also has provisions for tempo map programming with full support for multiple time signatures and MIDI Song Position Pointer. Now you have the freedom to create tempo and meter changes in either the 564 or your sequencer whichever best suits your method of working. Youll be able to start from any position within your composition and feel confident knowing that your MIDI sequencer or drum machine is locked up and playing the correct data regardless of song position.

Keeping Your Work In The Digital Domain
The 564 Digital Portastudio is the only MiniDisc based multitrack recorder that provides an S/PDIF digital output. Now you can archive digitally to DAT all the while preserving the high-end clarity and punch of the original recording. As DAT is arguably the most popular format for mastering these days, the 564 Digital Portastudio provides a digital output conforming to the Sony/Phillips Digital Interface protocol. Now you have the ability to transfer your compositions not only to DAT, but also to hard disk editing systems, MD Audio (2 channel format) or even CD-R (Compact Disc - Recordable).

Before you learn about the exciting capabilities of the MD-301, you might find it helpful to know more about MiniDisc technology. What is it? The MiniDisc (MD) is a magneto-optical device. This advanced technology uses the combination of a laser and a magnetic head to record and play sound from a small, specially coated floppy-like disc the MiniDisc. Its similar to a CD with one big exception: your average CD is not rewritable you cant re-record it. You can re-record a MiniDisc as many times as you like.
Removable, re-recordable MiniDiscs offer the convenience of DAT and the quality of a digital recording media. Plus, the MD format gives you random access to audio, for incredible speed and editing flexibility. If youre looking for a single piece of gear that can record, edit and playback digital audio, MiniDisc is a perfect choice.

Easy To Use. Easy To Store. Hard To Wear Out.
MiniDiscs have all the convenience of a cassette with all the quality of a digital recording media. Like a cassette or DAT, you simply pop a MiniDisc into your MD-301 and youre ready for exceptionally highquality digital recording, editing and playback. Like tape, MD technology allows you to record and re-record over existing audio. Whats more, you can re-record your MiniDisc thousands of times with pristine audio playback. So when your music or audio program is recorded on MiniDisc, its forever unless, of course, you decide to re-record.

Go Tape One Better

Each recording format provides different tools for different jobs. Thats why its important to think about what you want to do with your equipment before you purchase. If your primary objective is to create music demos (laying tracks and mixing to stereo), analog tape may be your answer. If you need long format digital recording and playback, DAT is a great tool.
The big advantage of the MiniDisc format is that it provides you with random access to recorded material. Its the perfect choice if you want digital recording, editing and playback in a single dedicated unit. Plus MiniDisc gives you important extras like instant start capability and flexible playback programming.

Your Search Is Over

While tape is great for many jobs, its linear in the way it accesses your audio. That means it can only play back in a straight line as the audio was recorded. If you want to hear or record another part of the tape, you have to fast forward or rewind. And you cant change the order of the material without physically editing the tape or transferring the audio to another machine. This transfer process can cause a loss of audio quality, especially with magnetic tape. Its a fact in analog: the more transfers (or generations), the less audio quality. Because a MiniDisc provides random access retrieval of audio, that is, its not linear in playback, you can hear chosen tracks almost as fast as you can cue them up. Thats why MiniDisc is an exceptional choice for broadcast, theater or other live performance venues. No more missed cues, frantic rewinding, dead air or breaking your creative flow. Plus, random access operation greatly speeds up your sessions. For example, if you mix a song onto your MiniDisc recorder, you can hear the results nearly instantly just cue and play with no waiting. Think of the time youll save! Are you looking for the perfect, affordable digital replacement for your NAB cart machines? Do you want a dedicated piece of digital recording gear with internal editing capabilities? And what about instant start, play programming and random access operation? Now that you know a little more about the benefits of MD technology, read on and find out why TASCAM has the answers.

With the MD-301 MiniDisc Recorder/Reproducer, TASCAM brings the power of random access recording, editing and playback to an affordable new level. This hot, 2-channel MD recorder gives you 74 minutes (stereo) of pristine digital audio on re-recordable, easy-to-store MiniDiscs. Its speed of operation combined with versatile programming capability make the MD-301 a cutting-edge production tool for any application where random access operation enhances performance. And all this comes in a sleek, 2U, rack-mountable chassis.

Made For The Fast Lane

Although the MD-301 is as easy to use as a cassette deck, its a powerful and creative audio editing tool that helps you speed through production. DIVIDE lets you divide a track into two; MOVE lets you move a track to another location; COMBINE gives you the power to splice two tracks together into one; and ERASE lets you quickly eliminate unwanted tracks or programs. These editing features, combined with a variety of programmable playback options, make the MD-301 a faster, better way to record and manipulate your audio. TASCAM thought of everything. Youll find the features you need for live, pre-programmed, and hands-off operation. Create fade-ins/outs, cue and re-cue on the fly, or program for shuffle or repeat play. Theres even a TIMER RECORD/PLAY mode for unattended start/stop a must for commercial installations. Lets say you have a theme park or convention center and you want pre-recorded messages to run on the half-hour. In TIMER mode, the MD-301 does the job like clockwork. In addition to editing features, the MD-301 has an on-board sample rate converter that makes digital transfers from other sources including DAT tapes recorded at other sampling rates automatic. Fact is, any format that speaks S/PDIF can be converted to MiniDiscs 44.1kHz standard sampling rate by the MD-301. For added control, the MD-301 comes standard with an RC-3 wireless infrared remote controller. The RC-3 gives you access to the MD-301s abundant production features from any location in your broad-
The MD-301 is a great piece of recording gear and the cost makes it an incredible value the speed alone is worth the price of admission. Because of the production hours the station is saving, our MD-301 will pay for itself within a matter of months. A.W., Arlington, V A.

cast studio, theater audio booth or project studio. Using 74-minute stereo MiniDiscs, the MD-301 is perfect for sound intensive productions. And storage has never been easier. In fact, you can keep all your projects and programs on separate discs for better management of your audio archives.
The Ins And Outs Of Quality
The MD-301 will be at home in just about any audio environment. RCA unbalanced analog inputs and outputs provide standard connections to and from your console or other gear. For digital input capability, the unit offers both RCA coaxial S/PDIF and optical TOS connectors. For digital output, the S/PDIF format is supported with an optical TOS port. With these connections, youll keep your project in the digital domain while recording from and to other digital sources.

For Broadcast

As a replacement for outdated NAB cart machines, the MD-301 gives you digital quality and more control over program material than you dreamed possible at this price. With instant start capability and auto cue, your live, on-air productions will be seamless. Your playlist, commercials, bumpers, sound effects, promos, stingers and other audio tracks are only a push button away. Add polish to your programs as you record with programmable fade-ins and fade-outs. And with track and disc titling for easy reference, you always know where you stand. The MD-301 is great for telephone and in-studio interviews, too. Simply record, then edit with DIVIDE, MOVE and ERASE functions. Its great for the creation and storage of production assets for every show in your lineup. With an MD-301 in your rack, youve got a versatile, powerful digital audio tool for your production studio.
We use a lot of music and sound effects in the show. One of the best things about the MD-301 is its cue and start capability. The performers on stage know that audio will be right on cue everytime. And with the programming and editing functions we were able to fine tune backing audio and cues during rehearsals. And never missed a beat. J.R., Cincinnati, OH

On Stage

Lets say the director of your theater production wants you to change the sound effects configuration of a particular scene. And he wants you to do it for tonights performance! No sweat. The on-board editing capabilities of your MD-301 make it simple to reorder pre-recorded program material. Its versatile playback options are great for rehearsals or providing music tracks for live performances especially when you need things to happen right on cue.

In Your Project Studio

If you own a project or professional recording studio, the MD-301 is a superb archiving tool that makes it easy to manage your work. Put each project on a different disc your song ideas, music, voiceovers, SFX

6 Pages - Page 5

and mixes are instantly accessible. The MD-301 is also the perfect companion to your MD multitrack recorder such as the TASCAM 564 Digital Portastudio. The TOS optical digital I/O makes cross-platform transfers a snap you can record material/songs from the 564 directly to the MD-301 without ever leaving the digital domain. Its an exceptional way to archive your music projects.
In Your Industrial Strength Application
If your business is contracting audio installations for commercial applications, you cant go wrong when you specify the MD-301. Because its TASCAM, you can count on industrial strength performance day-in, day-out. The MD-301s PROGRAM PLAY, SHUFFLE PLAY and REPEAT functions give your clients unlimited flexibility in playing back audio. Its a simple matter to program the unit to play music or pre-recorded messages in any order. The MD-301 also offers random playback and continuous looping. And for the ultimate convenience, the Timer mode provides unattended operation. And of course, MiniDiscs are as easy as cassettes to store and use, so changing background audio programs is as simple as loading another MD.

Ive been upgrading my project studio to digital and the MD-301 provided the last piece of the puzzle. Its more than a mixdown machine Im using the MD-301s editing functions to create killer demos. DIVIDE and MOVE are now a part of my creative routine. J.Y., Whittier, CA
