By "TTL" can we assume you mean 5V HCMOS?
What do your outputs have to do? Sink current? Source current? Both?
Resistive load? Inductive load? How much current?
For outputs that sink current and when a volt or so of Vce(on) is okay,
you can use an inexpensive darlington array with integrated flyback
diodes. Integrated source drivers are also available, but more expensive.
You can also use NPN transistors with base resistors, or "digital
transistors" that have built-in resistors (also available in duals),
adding external flyback diodes if required.
