The Tascam ML-4D/OUT Four-Channel Dante-Analogue Converter With DSP Mixer is an exquisite analogue output unit that converts four Dante input signals into four line output signals. In addition, it also supports four-channel Dante output as well, making it possible to use virtually any audio sources within an established Dante network. Available with Euroblock (ML-4D/OUT-E) or XLR (ML-4D/OUT-X) connectors for analogue outputs, this model can be used for a wide range of applications.


The ML-4D/OUT is part of the Tascam Dante Compact Processor Series consisting of compact, half-rack size audio converters for Dante/AES67 networks. The models easily add additional mic/line or AES/EBU inputs/outputs to Dante audio networks in public facilities, broadcasting stations, recording studios or upmarket domestic environment and can be freely combined.


A key advantage of the product range is the DSP processor built into each unit. By providing not only mixing functions and EQ but also dynamic processing, automatic level control, auto-ducking, routing and noise compensation, even small systems can fully perform without additional signal processing or mixing devices. From the input of microphone signals to the output of powered speakers or recording devices, the Dante Compact Processor Series can build up a complete small system on their own.


Remote control is possible via two different software applications available for Mac, Windows, iOS and Android devices: Tascam DCP Connect for configuration and Tascam EZ Connect for end users, both of which are simple to use and included with the units. The ML-4D/OUT also offers the possibility to control its output levels via GPI.


All models can be powered by PoE or an optional AC adapter. By using power daisy-chaining, two units mounted side-by-side in a rack can be powered by one AC adapter.


As a compact 4-channel line output device for Dante networks, the Tascam ML-4D/OUT is ideal where space is a limiting factor. Install it, for example, under a table or shelf in a conference room or broadcast studio, side by side with another device in a touring or studio rack using the AK-RS1 rackmount shelf, or place it wherever analogue outputs are currently required.


The ML-4D/OUT incorporates a complete set of DSP functions for all the processing your output audio signals might need, plus mixing and internal routing. Use the included 10-band EQ, delay, limiting and other features to taylor each output to the requirements of your room or use case.


Built-in 6x4 mixer

Using the internal mixer, you can create four different mixes from the four Dante input channels which can then be assigned to the four line outputs or Dante outputs via the routing matrix. The mixer is also equipped with a ducking function and an ANC (ambient noise compensator) function, which detects the level of environmental sounds and automatically adjusts the input level of the source.


Built-in 8x8 routing matrix

The routing matrix lets you assign the four mixes or four Dante inputs to the four analogue outputs and/or four Dante outputs. And if you need only a simple line output unit, you can bypass the entire mixer and assign just Dante inputs to line outputs.


Store scene presets and recall them using timer events

You can save your input/output routings, mix levels and other settings as one of 50 presets. This makes it easy to switch between different types of events or environments. By using scene presets together with the timer event function* (which brings its own SNTP client), it is possible to automatically change settings at specified times.


ll DCP series models can be powered over the network connection (PoE, Power over Ethernet). This means you don’t need an AC adapter for each unit – there does not even have to be a socket at the installation site when using a PoE compatible network switch. This can lead to drastically reduced installation costs if a system consists of several DCP units.


The DSP functions on board the ML-4D/OUT can be controlled by software on a laptop, tablet computer, or even smartphone. Depending on the amount of controls the user should have access to, you can choose between two types of remote control software:

  • Tascam DCP Connect: Designed for system integrators/managers who handle the configuration and settings of an entire system.
  • Tascam EZ Connect: Designed for end-users, allowing them to use simple controls. The administrator can specify which controls are accessible
