VERSATILE NEW GENERATION HIGH-RESOLUTION MULTITRACK HANDHELD RECORDER​

Together with TASCAM, we are excited to announce the debut of the Portacapture X8 High-Resolution Adaptive Multi-Recorder. Featuring 192kHz/ 32-bit floating point recording technology, a 3.5-inch colour touchscreen display for enhanced operational visibility, large-format internal detachable mics to accommodate a variety of recording applications, six setup modes each with instant optimized settings, internal 8-track recording, and more. The new Portacapture X8 provides the new standard for portable multitrack recording, podcasts, music capture, voice capture for interviews and vlogs, and field recording to name a few applications. 

The Portacapture X8 uses an app-like set of configurations that optimize the unit for various recording tasks, including multitrack recording, voice capture for interviews, podcasts, music recording, field recording, and ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) for capturing those unusual/sensory-related sounds. Combined with the recorder’s intuitive Launcher system and the incorporated 3.5-inch colour touch panel display, the Portacapture X8 provides users with more time to focus on the actual recording without having to struggle with complicated settings.

The TASCAM Portacapture X8 provides a wealth of DSP capability that dramatically outpaces the competition. This includes Compressor, Limiter, Low-Cut Filter, Noise Gate, Reverb, Auto Gain Control, and more. Equally notable, wireless remote control is possible via mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets (iOS and Android).
