For the money, this is a fantastic home studio device for those that don’t want to use a software DAW. I cannot be happier with the quality of the recordings and the options available on the machine.
I'm old school. Can't get the hang of Cubase. Tascam DP is the way to go for me. Easy to understand and works perfectly for my needs. Versatile and user friendly.
great machine when working, terrible when its faulty.
I am delighted with this Portastudio from Tascam, it is very well made, the sound quality is superb and it is so easy to use with a well written manual.
Great piece of gear, Easy enough to work out and start recording. Tascam quality 10/10
