Watford, UK (July 6, 2020)—The Tascam Model 12 mixer has received a new firmware update – V1.20—which includes a Vamping Playback function and new metronome features.
In music, “vamping” means the repetition of certain phrases or improvisation over a repeated phrase. With the built-in recorder in the mixer, users can now mark up to 10 such phrases per song, which can then be played repeatedly during playback. This allows the musician to better practice difficult passages or to extend solos and interactions with the audience during a live performance for as long as necessary.
The repetition of individual intervals starts either automatically or manually and can be interrupted by pressing a button or footswitch, after which the piece continues until the next marked interval.
The firmware update also includes new features for the metronome: On the tempo change menu page, one can now turn on the click for easier adjustment, and there are three volume options for the accented note of the click. There is also a new sound pattern with four bars for the count-in.
