TASCAM's 32-track Digital Portastudio!

The TASCAM DP-32SD Digital Portastudio packs the flexibility of a fully loaded DAW into a single piece of ultra-reliable hardware. With eight individual input channels, the 32-channel DP-32SD lets you easily track an entire band. A studio's worth of onboard effects, signal processors, and mastering tools gives you everything you need to polish your tracks to perfection and save them to the included SD card or export them to your computer via USB. And thanks to its intuitive master section and full set of hands-on controls, producing music with the TASCAM DP-32SD is as fun as it is rewarding.

Enough simultaneous inputs to track a whole band

Track the whole band at once with the TASCAM DP-32SD Digital Portastudio. The DP-32SD comes loaded with eight individual inputs. Each input is equipped with an XLR-1/4" combo jack and a microphone preamplifier, complete with phantom power for your condenser mics. That means even if you use a handful of microphones on drums and a few more on guitars and bass, you'll still have inputs left over on the DP-32SD to track vocals.

Loaded with fun onboard effects and powerful built-in signal processors

No studio is complete without quality effects and signal processors. That's why TASCAM loaded their DP-32SD Digital Portastudio with a ton of studio-style tools. Record with vital processors such as equalizers, compressors, and limiters, while the DP-32SD's onboard guitar/amp-simulation engine adds real amplifier sound to your instrument input. You can sweeten your sound with reverb, chorus, and other enhancements during mixdown. What's more, the TASCAM DP-32SD's powerful onboard mastering effects let you get the most out of your final mixes.

Intuitive channel strip-style controls make tracking and mixing easy

Why wade through tedious menus for the controls that should be close at hand? TASCAM built the DP-32SD to be both powerful and intuitive to use, with none of the frustrating awkwardness that plagues over-engineered gear. The DP-32SD's simple master channel strip section gives you hands-on controls for your channel EQ, pan, and send settings. There's also an easy-to-read color display that gives you instant feedback as you tweak your channel settings, effects, and processors, as well as dedicated controls for all essential recording functions.

Tascam DP 32

This machine is the best! It is easy to use. It is very versatile. I can track quickly with 24 bit depth and 48 kHz sample rate. I will sometimes transfer my tracks over to Reaper for deeper editing (if necessary). I think I have the very best of both worlds! I believe this is the best and easiest way to record music on the planet! I love this machine because I can get stuff done!

Old school feel. Digital power

This thing is a workhorse. Love being able to record without running out of processer power. Gives me the old school feeling while still having modern digital power.

Multi-track recorder,Tascam.

Several weeks ago I bought the Tascam Dp-32SD and I'm just learning how to use it, it's awesome and user friendly. I can't believe what this unit does for the price that I've paid for, I'm having a Bowl learning how to record the technology is awesome. I bought this unit at the right time, and I have a new hobby so much to learn.

Fantastic Piece

I bought this Portastudio last December (2014), to replace my Tascam DP24 which used a mechanical hard drive. The 24 was a great machine, the 32 SD is even better. Prior to that I used the Fostex HR 16 so I was familiar with the limitations of these types of recorders. The Tascams are designed to work intuitively, the quality of the recordings is phenomenal and the editing capabilities are professional. I would recommend this to anyone that wants record without computer gimmicks. Mic'ing cabinets on electric guitar amps, acoustic instruments, etc., is the way to go for me. The possibilities are limitless. Its old school recording with digital capabilities. Weel worth the money and offers the best of both worlds.

Setting up a new home studio and I was in the market for a recording set up that offered great value and minimal space requirements. I use a DAW but always find it to be cumbersome in the actual recording process and wanted to use it for final mixing instead. Saw this Tascam unit and the great price and now that I have it and have worked with it I could not be happier. Easy to operate during the recording process (I record myself playing all instruments and over dub) and the quality of the build of the unit makes me think this will last longer than I will...LOL Quick shipping from the folks at Sweetwater got it in my hands in no time and the support from their rep in helping me choose the right gear for my needs sealed the deal.
