  • Overview
  • Features

The MX-8A is a 10×10 matrix mixer with eight mic/line inputs, eight line outputs and stereo USB I/O compatible with software- or cloud-based conferencing platforms. It offers powerful internal DSP mixing and routing plus multiple audio processing functions and is ideal for many applications including meeting rooms, huddle spaces, court rooms, restaurants, stores, banqueting rooms and others.

DSP functions include a compressor, four-band parametric EQ and auto level control for each input. The output section features a 10-band EQ with high/low-pass filter, delay, and a limiter function per output, all of which can be adjusted and saved to any of the 50 scene memories, along with the mixing/routing settings. To make audio for announcements clearer, automatic ducking and an ambient noise compensator are also available.

The MX-8A has natural-sounding, high-grade Tascam mic preamps, leveraging our knowledge and experience from many years of making pro audio equipment. The input level range is –77.5 dBu to +26 dBu, with equivalent input noise achieving less than –126 dB, and a signal-to-noise ratio of over 108 dB.

The MX-8A can be controlled via two different software applications available for Mac, Windows, iOS and Android devices: Tascam Tascam MX Connect for configuration and Tascam Tascam EZ Connect for end users, both of which are simple to use and included with the unit. Using Tascam MX Connect installers can quickly and easily configure the MX-8A and then assign appropriate simple controls for access by users via Tascam EZ Connect.

The optional RC-W100 wall-mountable controller offers a graphic display and a push/turn multi-control knob that provides for volume control and source selection.
