ION Logo


The DTRS Format family, comprising the TASCAM DA-88/98/98HR/38 and SONY PCM-800 modular digital multitracks, instantly connects with existing technology and techniques within the studio mainstream thanks to its complete ION compatibility. Standard ION system software supports control of a time code capable unit, complete with track arming of the machine's 8 digital audio channels. The DTRS format's own internal machine to machine synchronization allows you to add up to 15 "slaves" to the ION controlled transport. For extremely comprehensive control of various parameters on up to 16 individual machines in such a chain, this optional ION/88 software module is highly recommended. Only one ATOM port is required per group of 16 DTRS transports operating in this manner.
