Great Multi-Track Recorder!
First I would like to say thanks to my sales rep Mr. Matt Masek. The Tascam DP008 is an awesome little recorder and it has re-lit that flame of creativity that I have been trying to light for a long, long time. Let me start by saying that I own and have owned many different multi track recorders from old reel to reel, to old cassette, to hard drive and computer based DAW software. I have had the same problem with a lot of the gear above mentioned; â�� Portability and ease of useâ��
If you want to put down that first riff or couple of tracks or even an eight-track production, this little gem will do it! If you want to pull some 16 bit loops or tracks onto it and fiddle with mixing and engineering it will do that as well. When you have that Idea recorded the way you want you can transfer it to your computer for further mixing and effects. I absolutely love the simplicity of this little device and I am so glad I purchased it words canâ��t describe how happy I am with it.
I sold my Boss BR600 because I found myself spending too much time punching through multiple screens trying to shut down unwanted effects and settings that I really didnâ��t need until the final mix. Unlike the many DAW software packages that I have, I no longer have to roll around on the floor in a maze of wire grimacing the whole time trying to be a recording engineer, stage hand and producer all at the same time, I can just fire up the DP008 and get my Ideas recorded before they are drowned in a sea of frustration and anger.
Its only 44.1 at 16bit but so what; thatâ��s CD quality and itâ��s more than good enough for any kind of recording that I will be doing. With 32 G flash Cards this recorder will do a lot more than many people will give it credit for.
I havenâ��t covered the two external mics or the reverb and EQ this unit has on board but let me tell you wonâ��t be disappointed at all with its performance. I suggest that you go out on Youtube and watch and listen to what people are able to record with this little gem and I bet youâ��ll be as impressed as I was. Call your Sweetwater Rep today and buy one of these units, If your old school like me your going to love recording with it, if your new at recording your going to love recording with it. The DP008 is a great little multi-track recorder.
Thanks Matt and special thanks to Tascam and Sweetwater for having quality products that more than do the job for the serious musician.
