The Tascam X48 is the world’s first standalone 48-track hybrid hard disk workstation. It integrates the best of both worlds: the stability and ease-of-use of a purpose-built hard disk recorder, and the editing features and plug-in compatibility of a computer-based digital audio workstation. Yet the X48 goes beyond mere standalone recorders -- its built-in, automated 48-channel digital mixer, VGA display output, powerful editing functions, and DVD+RW backup drive transform it into a complete integrated workstation.
