The DA-88 was a digital multitrack recording device introduced by the TASCAM division of the TEAC Corporation in 1993. This modular, digital multitrack device uses tape as the recording medium and could record up to eight tracks simultaneously. It also allowed multiple DA-88 devices to be combined to record 16 or more tracks. Audio data was stored in the DTRS (Digital Tape Recording System) format on Hi-8mm video compact cassettes, allowing up to 108 minutes of continuous recording on a single tape.
