The Tascam HS-20 features a FTP client function which allows either automated or manual file transfer and management. Schedule recordings for regular events such as meetings and classes, then automatically upload and archive the recording to a designated server. Uploading audio occurs in the background; as such, recording and playback operations are not interrupted. Other uses include uploading a playlist for in-store music playback from a central location.

Event lists enable the automatic playback of files such as background music and announcements, useful in retail stores and restaurants. Utilize the event lists for scheduled recording, playback, downloading and other events. By combining playback events with download events, audio files can be automatically retrieved from a server for playback. The HS-20 FTP server functions also enable centralized file management from a corporate headquarters to multiple locations, perfect for playing files simultaneously in a chain of retail stores.

The HS-20 features a touchscreen color display. The graphical user interface is intuitive and easy to understand. Menus for inputs, outputs, and other settings are simple and on one screen. All parameters can be accessed quickly and easily by touching the screen and changing the settings.
