Tascam PE-40


The Tascam PE-40 is ideal for versatile sound creation and is indispensable in meeting the demand of fulfilling various application requirements of multi-track recording, PA application, or mix down operation with a recording mixer, permuting minute tailoring of the sounds of drums, electro-rhythm equipment and synthesizers.

You can personally tailor your music by combining the PE-40 with any of the various sound processors available. As there are four separate equalizer circuits, one for each channel incorporated into the PE-40, a single PE-40 will provide you with a variety of application possibilities.

To give you an example, two echo units can be connected to comprise a stereo echo system, in which the dry signals are sent directly to the PE-40 and the wet signals are sent to the PE-40 for routing together to the mixer.

The Equalizer can be placed before or after a sound processor so that the signals are handled either before entering the processor, or after. And if applications call for, the wet and dry signals can be simultaneously or independently controlled through the PE-40.

Note: Wet signals are the signals that are processed through a signal processor, and dry signals are the signals that are not.
