This listing is for a barely used vintage Tascam Portastudio 246 2-Speed, Multi-Track Cassette Recorder w/ 6-Channel Mixer made in Japan by TEAC!

This unit comes in its original box with paperwork. I have powered it on but not tested yet. Likely will need belts as all these older models do. It is in line to be serviced by a local electronic expert. If it hasn’t sold by then, it will be relisted and priced accordingly.

The TASCAM Portastudio was the world's first four-track recorder based on a standard compact audio cassette tape. It remains one of the most popular of the "old school" analog Portastudios, making them increasingly hard to come by.
Released in the mid-80's, the Tascam 246 is the top of the line Portastudio, considered the pinnacle of the Portastudio technology, exceeding even the later 8-track models for sound & build quality! Not to mention the 246 has four direct tape outs, six channel inserts and a four buss mixer, making professional recording much smoother. It features a built in mixer with an unrivaled EQ section on each channel with each knob split for gain & frequency, two effects loops and the four PGM busses means it can record on up to 4 tracks simultaneously. To increase the quality of the recording, in addition to the DBX Noise Reduction, the 246 offers the choice between normal and high-speed recording, at 3-3/4 ips, twice the normal speed of a standard audio cassette. It measures 19.5" x 15.5" x 4.75" and weighs about 23.5 lbs.

The 246 produces exceptional sound quality for a multitrack cassette recorder, the best of all models of similar type really. The sound produced can be described as nice and surprisingly warm. The playback on the 246 will sound familiar for anyone keen on vintage analog sounding audio. Higher frequencies sound somewhat muted with noise reduction on, but this is fairly standard and should be expected from non digital cassette recorders.

An admired asset of the model is it has an integrated four buss mixer.

Some people complain about the 246 being overly big and bulky for a multitrack cassette recorder. Others argue that it’s not an issue because this machine lends itself more to stay in one place rather than a mobile recorder that you take on the go with you. In fact, substantial size and specifically weight in the analog days often meant higher quality in electronics.
