Tascam has released v2.0 firmware for its DA-6400 Multitrack Digital Recorder, adding a new functions including Theater Play mode and Playlist support.

Tascam DA-6400 Theater Play enables DA-6400 users to set start and end marker points for individual takes. These markers allow theatre operators to trigger multichannel events manually, or via external control, after which the system automatically proceeds to the next scheduled cue and waits patiently in standby mode. This potent feature enables venue designers to easily combine audio, lighting and scenery cues into a single, easily controllable experience.

Using Playlist mode, users can define regions and non-destructively set playback ranges within individual multitrack takes, and create dynamic scenarios whereby these regions are played in various orders and/or multiple times each. This makes creating complex performances from chains of events quick and intuitive.

Other new functions include playback of WAV files in 32-bit PCM and 32-bit floating formats, sorting functions that allow the take list to be arranged in Take time code or Take name order, and mDNS support so that network connection with the DA-6400 can be achieved from Mac OS and Telnet, or VNC and FTP apps that support mDNS.

‘Version 2.0 firmware takes the DA-6400 to a new level and shows Tascam’s ongoing commitment to upgrades,’ says Director of Product Marketing, Paul Youngblood. ‘The new Playlist function and, especially, the powerful Theater Play feature deliver new creative applications for theatrical, amusement park, and live concert playback.’

DA-6400 v2.0 firmware is available now as a free download from the Tascam website.
