The TASCAM 202MKVII Rackmount USB Dual Cassette Deck is perfect for professional studios, houses of worship, and audio/music aficionados. The most notable new feature is a rear-panel USB output that allows cassettes to be recorded and archived to digital media. For karaoke and voiceover applications, a front-panel 1/4-inch microphone input with dedicated level control allows live input to be blended with Tape 1 audio and recorded in real time to Tape 2. The microphone input can also accept line-level signals. In addition to the USB output, the rear panel has unbalanced RCA connectors for stereo analog line-level input and output. On the front of the 202 is a 1/4-inch stereo headphone output with a dedicated volume control.

Use one-touch dubbing for simple cassette duplication, or start parallel recording to record the same source on two tapes at the same time. A pitch adjustment for Tape 1, adjustable noise reduction, and repeat playback are all welcome extras. The 202MKVII features a 1/4″ mic input and a 1/4″ stereo headphone output in addition to the normal stereo RCA input and output. There are level adjustments for the microphone input, headphone output, and recording gain.
