More channels. More inputs. The new TASCAM DM-3200 digital mixer has more of everything that made the DM-24 a pedigreed studio workhorse. Plus an improved physical interface with per-channel multi-function LED ring encoders, more comprehensive DAW control, vastly improved routing flexibility, easier and robust data backup/ restore, greatly expanded mix storage using compact flash media and much more.
The DM-3200 features 32 full-featured channels and 16 returns for a total of 48 channels at mixdown - even at its full 96kHz / 24-bit audio resolution. It has 4-band fully-parametric EQ and dynamics on every channel and two effects processors, each capable of running the built-in TC Works reverb processor. Surround mixing is available with up to 6.1-channel panning, and the optional IF-SM/DM expansion card adds surround monitoring and downmixing to the DM-3200.
The DM-3200 provides a new way to record with DAW recording software. With the addition of an optional expansion card, the IF-FW/DM FireWire interface, the DM-3200 becomes a 24-channel computer audio interface, making it a complete studio solution for professional DAW recording. Built-in HUI and Mackie Control emulation allows the console to function as a flexible control surface for workstation software. This gives you the best of both worlds - total control over your recording software transport and mixing capabilities with the cue mixing, talkback, microphone preamps and world-class automation provided by the DM-3200.

Love the Diversity and ability for digital flexibility! This unit is so nice my brother bought two DM 4800's and he cascades them to do his mixes. We both go way back in music, so we are very picky with equipment. The Tascam DM 3200 is perfect for my TV, Film, and corporate commercials. After I do the mix in the DAW Software I break out my tracks and run them through the Tascam and I can feel and hear the difference of the circuts alone. It truly pays to the DM3200 in the product path it adds a realism Computers and software alone can't describe.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Great ptece of machinery This thing is a jewel. I can see my mixes in all sorts of ways that you can't do when you are stuck inside the box. It is simply sounds and looks better than anything else close to its price range. I have had it for a couple of years I also have the presonus 24.6.4 and I like this much better. combined with AC-7 Core My Ipad is unstoppable. Love is not to strong
I have owned this for over a year. For the price range there is no other board with the expansive functionality that the DM-3200 provides. Custom routing is amazing! The motorized faders really add power to your studio with the ability to scroll between tracks in the remote (control surface) interface. There is a slight learning curve to the interface. Now that Pro-Tools has opened up their architecture to allow non-digidesign boards to function, you can't go wrong with this purchase!
