    Tascam LM-8ST reviews

    LM-8ST Rackmount Line Mixer is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another good TASCAM product I always found TASCAM products to be solidly built and good sounding. The LM-8ST is no exception. Although I didn't have time to work a lot with it yet, my first impressions are very positive: it is very quiet and has quite a bit of headroom. Personally, I would have prefered a dedicated effects send circuit instead of the ST2/AUX buss TASCAM has put in, but it can be configured as such using little switches located under the unit, so it isn't really an issue. The knobs have a solid feel and all the inputs can be set to -10 or +4 db. There is also a general ground lift switch. All in all, a simple but effective mixer worthy of the TASCAM reputation. A good machine for mixing a keyboard setup.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Rack-Mountable Line Mixer with M I had a pretty specific idea of what I wanted when I started shopping for a mixer. It had to offer multi-buss output It had to have at least eight channels of stereo line-in It had to be rack-mountable and no more than 2U in size All inputs and outputs needed to be balanced It had to produce a clean, uncolored signal This unit wins on all my criteria. My goal was to create flexible routing options between my synthesizers and my audio interface that I could change on the fly without having to drag out a box of patch cables. On this mixer, signal inputs can be routed to the master buss, buss 1, or buss 2, all of which are stereo, so you have six output channels to work with. My audio interface (a Focusrite Scarlett 18i6) just happens to have six line inputs, so this was perfect for me. This allowed me to give each synthesizer its own hard-wired input channel on the mixer and then send those signals to one or all of the busses. In my setup, the master buss is a clean, unprocessed signal, routed directly to the audio interface. Buss 1 connects to an FX chain with an analog filter and a compressor/gate, in series. Buss 2 connects to a parametric equalizer for sound sculpting. And with only two patch cables, I can connect the output of the FX chain to the input of the equalizer, or I can route one buss to the sidechain inputs of the compressor on the other buss. To my ears, the output of this unit is absolutely pristine while adding a healthy boost to the signal if needed. My older synths produce a line signal of -10 dbV, like most consumer audio. It was really tough to get much more than a -18 to -14 db signal to my audio interface, even with the synth volume cranked to max, and I found myself adding a lot of processing just to get the signal level up to a more appropriate recording level, especially when working with my older drum machine. That's no longer a problem as this mixer has plenty of gain. I've been able to turn the volume on those older synths down to just below half, while keeping the mixer levels at right about the half mark too. This gives me a solid -6 to -2 db signal at the audio interface, giving me a healthy recording signal to work with. The look of the mixer is sleek, the pots are silky smooth, and the connections are all balanced and solid. I particularly appreciate the ability to set the input line level between -10 dbV or +4 dbU on each channel, making it easy for me to set up both my older and newer gear to the mixer. And the power switch is on the front panel! I don't understand why any manufacturer puts the power switch on the back panel of a rack-mountable mixer, but some of the units I looked at had this issue. I'm really happy with this mixer. It matched all my needs perfectly, sounds fantastic, and looks good doing it.
