In the Fall of 2020 I began using the Series 102i, which has two combo XLR/TRS inputs, as the main audio interface on my main tower computer. I just recently connected it to TASCAM’s Series 8p Dyna; I was able to add 8 more combo XLR/TRS (balanced) inputs to the 102i.
The Series 8p Dyna features per-input analogue compression. Just like on the Series 102i the first two inputs are on the front of the box, which has proven to be a major convenience. This now gives me four (4) instrument (such as electric guitar) inputs between the two devices.
It took an optical cable to connect the two units. The TASCAM driver software treats them as one device with ten inputs. This has been working perfectly in Studio One.
As with the Series 102i, the Series 8p Dyna included a promotion for both the TASCAM TM-80 large-diaphragm condenser mic and TH-02 closed back studio headphones free.
