DA88

From Chace Audio

DA88 is Tascam's DTRS (Digital Tape Recording System) eight-track 16-bit digital multi-track recorder. It utilizes Hi8 cassettes, commonly referred to as "DA88s,” as its recording medium. DA88s can record 16-bit digital audio with sample rates of 44.1kHz or 48kHz (see DA98-HR for 24-bit DTRS recording).

The DA88 was introduced as a competitor to the ADAT and eventually emerged as the dominant portable digital multi-track format for amateurs and professionals alike due to its low cost, quick locate times and built-in support for time code. However, DA88s are not an archival medium, and since they are highly prone to dropouts, pops, and other digital errors as they age, they must not be considered as a long-term audio storage solution.
