An affordable mixer for live bands, home recording or installation, the 16-channel Tascam M-164x features 6 mic inputs with XLR ins and phantom power for great-sounding tracks and a striking design with built-in meter bridge. A step up from the basic M-164, the M-164FX adds a stereo effects processor with 16 programs of reverb, delay, chorus and other great-sounding effects.

Mic inputs additionally have 3-band EQ with hipass filters for sculpting the mix. Five stereo line inputs bring the total count to 16 inputs, and several channels add EQ and RIAA phono preamps for adding flexibility. It also offers two output buses--main and sub--as well as a pair of AUX sends for monitors and effects.

Two additional versions of the M-164 are available:

  • The M-164UF includes the stereo effects processor of the M-164FX and adds a USB 2.0 port providing 16 outputs to computer and stereo return from computer at 96kHz / 24-bit (and includes Cubase LE4 48-track recording workstation software)
  • The standard M-164 includes no stereo effects or USB port

Key Features

  • Internal digital effects
  • Audio mixer with 16 inputs, 4 output buses, and 2 AUX sends

Unlike Anthony, I review based on performance and usability.

Metal enclosures do not make an electronic device better. They might make them more durable, but have no effect on performance. Had he actually tried the product, he might have found, as I, that it does exactly as advertised and at a much cheaper price and a much lighter package.

It lives up to its name as a Tascam quality product. I have owned a couple in the past and this one has been just as dependable, operable and rugged. Thank you Tascam for making a quality product with an affordable, though non-metal, price tag without sacrificing what makes your product great ... the electronics.

To keep it simple, and bc you have probably seen the bad review, I say home mixer bc it is not durable for constant gigging, no. But if you have the need for multiple ins for USB recording, where the heck are you going to find anything like this in this price range? I have had the M-164UF for about 3 years now, use with Ableton and Audition...can't recall any issues. I think as sort of an audio bedroom theatre (music/games/...porn! lol) system it sounds awesome! That was one of the first things I noticed about it.

The phantom +48 volts of power for condenser mics is a nice addition. Somebody mentioned the lack of a digital out, good point. But if you are just using reference monitors or headphones it sounds excellent. I run guitar/bass through it, either via Line 6 HD500 or direct w software amp sims. Always sounds good. Sometimes it is a little difficult getting the unity gain where you want it, but between the input gain and output gain onboard, you'll get there with some tweaking. I'm literally trying to think of any downside, but I suppose my only frame of reference are the M-Audio boxes I used before. I find the Tascam's overall sound quality to be better than those, I thought the M-Audio boxes were a little...tinny. The onboard effects are what they are, you're certainly never going to use them for recording, but I might throw some reverb on while running through vocals and it's passable.

What is nice too are the Sub and Main outs, so you have control say if you're playing back via USB and playing an instrument live over it. Each track can be bussed to either or both. The track EQs are not exceptional, but serviceable, but that's prob something you would do in software track editing, although to add some low end to a direct guitar or tweak the high end its fine enough. I gave it 5 stars bc I have truly enjoyed it and although I have upgraded stuff around it, I'm sticking w it simply bc there are not many options in it's class.

Using for few years already. I've seen and used a lot of stuff in my life, starting from Behringer and up to DiGiCo and Yamaha various mixers, 8ch, 16ch, PM1D, M7CL... I had a good choice, but why I bought this, what are advantages and disadvantages?

my purpose: to have a not expansive mixing console that would work with and without PC and also do multi track recording directly to PC for home recording...

- good quality of sound
- faders are ok, 3w eq, 2 auxes, and a sub with not bad routing options
- XLR and jack options for inputs
- gains are also good
- no driver issues with Windows 7, Cubase, Nuendo, VSTs...

what I did not like are build-in effects, but it's ok... good for fun with kids, and of course not using for recording
and digital ouput (coax or optic) would be very nice to have!

lightweight and does not take much space...

I've recorded 6channel simultaneously -- results as expected
Connected to Yamaha MSP10 pair -- just great

Based on my research few years ago, you can not find anything like this in this budget! for 700/800+ or more -- please... go higher up to DM2000... but I assure that this is the best console for home recording in $500-

Regards,
--Hayk

The TASCAM M-164FX 16-Input Mixer with Effects is worse than bad. I bought it during a special promotion where the unit sold for less than $200 plus, as an added bonus, 3 free Tascam Dynamic microphones were included. I opened the box, took one look at it and knew that I just bought a piece of garbage. If they included 10 free microphones, it still would not be worth buying. Cheap plastic all the way through. The sliders had a flimsy feel to then and they could not possibly hold up to frequent use. One good thing is that it was very light because of the meretricious plastic construction. I cannot say enough bad things about this mixer. It's really a shame because I own some other Tascam products and have been very happy with them. I hope this is not the direction Tascam is intending to go. Well, if they do go this route, producing products like the M-164FX 16, they are going to go belly-up. Bye, bye Tascam. Need I go on? I think not. If you buy the aforementioned product after reading this review, then you deserve what you are going to get.

I was just about to order it. When I discovered a discrepancy, the picture and the 1st Product Details: Item model number: M-164UF. This tells me that I'll be ordering a Tascam M-164uf which includes a usb port and cubase. But when you scroll to the bottom I see Product Description
Tascam M-164Fx 16-Channel Analog Mixer (With Effects)

This is totally different because it dosen't include the recording capabilities.

I want it for recording. Which is it? Right now I have it on my wish list and will be looking at other options.
