Tascam history
1979 (cont.)... TEAC introduced the A3440 1/4 inch multitrack, an upgraded 4- track open reel recorder. Even thought the A3440S had the TEAC brand name, it was sold by the TASCAM sales organization through music stores.
1983...TASCAM introduced the 30 series recorders. The TASCAM 38 was a 1/2", 8-track, 10 1/2" reel-to-reel recorder. Introductory price was under $3,000. The 38 filled a niche for the serious entry level recordist. The TASCAM 34 was a 4 track recorder with full frequency response in Sync Mode at an inexpensive price. The TASCAM 32 was a half track master recorder/reproducer using 1/4" tape.
1986- Tascam 34B
1991- The TASCAM 1500 Series were 4-buss recording consoles with 8 directly assignable outputs. The M1500 series included an 8-input version, the M1508, and a 16-input version, the M1516.
