TASCAM is usually a brand associated with audio interfaces and historically, the Portastudio casette tape multitrack recorder.

The TA-1VP is more than just a channel strip: It is a digital modelling platform that emulates high-end consoles, channel strips and mics.

It has an autotune feature - instead of a stylistic autotune implementation like what artists like T-Pain use, it is more of a performance based subtle pitch correction effect.

The Tascam TA-1VP is meant for those looking for a preamp with DAW-like channel strip functionality with multiple inserts available including pitch correction.
