Among the most powerful compact digital mixers.
A feature-packed powerhouse that rivals consoles with double the bulk and price. Operates as a standalone mixer or as the perfect companion to your hard disk recorder. It's 24-bit/96kHz capable with 24 inputs and 8 buses, and features built-in automation so you don't need an external computer. A wide array of analog mic/line inputs lets you work with just about any outboard devices. Includes 16 analog mic/line inputs, a 24-channel TDIF interface, 8-channel ADAT optical interface, plus a pair of stereo S/PDIF and AES/EBU connections. The DM-24 can also be expanded via 2 internal slots. You can connect 2 DM-24s together for 48 channels.
Each of the 24 channels has a completely parametric 4-band equalizer plus a configurable gate and compressor. A built-in per-channel digital delay is included to adjust for any latency disparities between the inputs. All channels have motorized 100mm faders. TASCAM has collaborated with TC Electronic and Antares to include their reverb and mic modeling technologies respectively.
You can store up to 8 entire mixes in the DM-24. When you open a new mix, the DM-24 instantly saves any static changes you make. There's no switching between read and write modes. All automation data can be stored via MIDI.
Factor in a wide battery of pro-quality effects, dynamics processing, and more, and you've got one of the most powerful digital mixers on the scene.

I use this mixer in 24 track computer based recording system. It works excellent. It rivals boards costing thousands of dollars more.
The preamps are the biggest drawback. They sound good, but the gain control on them is very touchy. It's a nice board though. Wish it came with the meter bridge.
The only thing that hurts this console is that the Behringer DDX3216 is fairly close to its capabilities for a whole lot less. Other than that, though, using it in a live sound rig is a dream. Wonderfully flexible EQ, compression and gating at your fingertips are worth sawing off limbs to have, as is the ability to recall mixes quickly. If you have the money, I definitely recommend this console.
I've had my DM24 for 3 years now... In the first year the power supply broke and took out the LCD screen. This was replaced and returned to me within a month. More recently I encountered the same fault again to be told by Tascam that its a known fault. I contacted Tascam directly and had my mixer collected no problem. After a few weeks I decided to phone Tascam to find out what state it was in. I was told they couldn't find it. After a month they eventually found it after me constantly contacting them. I was then told it was awaiting parts and would take a while. After 4 months of phoning them once a week I got my mixer back at the cost of labour after giving them loads of grief over losing my mixer for so long costing me money in hiring an analogue one! The story desn't end there!... Firstly I noticed a nasty dent where it looked like it had been dropped along with a screw floating loose inside the mixer! - not good... I then put the mixer back in place and oh no! I have no control room output! oh and some of the LED's don't work on the right hand side - This wasn't a problem before it went in for repair! I am now about the phone Tascam and get them to sort it out as I am discusted with the out of warranty service I have received. In my opinion its a great mixer when it works, but if it goes wrong god help ya. Also the company that did the repair was Cimple Solutions - Part of the FX group, In my opinion they were useless!

Good product but Tascam support have been a nightmare for me. Buyer beware!!!
I have used this Mixing Desk for just over a year, and Tascam keeps making it better with easy to upgrade software downloads. It's easy to navigate and intuitive. In fact I have used it on two remote recording projects coupled with a MX-2424 and the engineer's unfamilliar with the console were quickly diving into many of the features of the mixer.Overall it has more features than anything else in it's price range and it's very solid in architecture. No other board has automation unless you spend another 2k on something like the Yamaha o1V 96.Of course it interfaces flawlessly with the Tascam MX-2424 in my rack. It also has DAW drivers so that you can use it as a front end for Cubase and ProTools etc, but I have not used that interface yet, perhaps on the next project.
An excellent sounding mixer loaded with features. The EQ has to be heard to be believed. Unbelieveable at this price point. Getting better every day as free upgrades are released. Go to the Tascam website to see the quality of customer support.
The more I use this, the better it gets. Great sound, unbelievable features.
