How 4 tracks became art
The TEAC 3340S 4-channel Simul-Sync® tape deck was part of the second generation of their Creator series. With Permalux® heads for excellent frequency response, low distortion and resistance to wear, the 3340S was the most versatile quadraphonic tape deck at the time.
Until then, conventional 4-track recorders didn’t permit overdubbing in sync. And that's where Simul-Sync technology from TEAC admirably comes to help. Turning recording, bouncing and overdubbing into an art form, this officially certified TEAC A-3340S will offer you the same channels of creativity that inspired so many great songs.
Intuitive, easy-to-use controls
The T-RackS TEAC A-3340S puts all the controls from the original at your disposal, along with some additional features to help you create just the sound you're looking for. You can calibrate the record and playback heads, or choose from 2 tape speeds and 4 tape formulas for a wide variety of tape-machine effects. We've also included a number of presets and you can easily save your own.
To each its own sound
The TEAC A-3340S is the 4-track tape recorder behind some of the most famous demos and songs in history. For example, The Doobie Brothers used a A-3340S to record several of the song demos that earned them a record deal, while Brian Eno and others still use the A-3340S today for its sonic qualities.
