Product Description

Tascam DP004 Digital Pocketstudio Recorder based on 30 years of cassette Portastudios!
Though based on Tascam's long line of cassette portastudios the Pocketstudio brings users into the new-age of digital recording with four CD-quality tracks and features like Undo and Repeat that wouldn't be possible on your past generation, cassette portastudios. Much like those easy-to-use Portastudios, the Pocketstudio sports a similar row of knobs to set levels and pan instead of confusing you with menu screens.

The Tascam DP004 is able to record two sources at the same time onto it's removable SD memory. A stereo condenser microphone has been designed into the unit to make it simple and ready to record in any situation. Record concerts, rehearsals and sudden songwriting inspirations when they occur. Dual rear panel 1/4 inch jacks provide connection to dynamic mics or other stereo or mono sources. Inputs are switchable to a guitar level signal for easy recording.

Tascam DP004 Features

  • Two 1/4 mic/line inputs
  • Switchable guitar input
  • Headphone/Line output
  • USB 2 connector for connecting to your home computer
  • Records to SD Card media
  • Bounce, repeat and record undo
  • Dedicated stereo mixdown track
  • Powered through AA Batteries or optional PS P520 power adapter
The DP004 allows you to build up your arrangement until you've filled up all four tracks. The Bounce feature allows you to consolidate tracks and make room for more overdub layers.

Mixing is also built into the Digital Pocketstudio. Once you set levels and pan, record your mix onto a dedicated stereo master track. You're able to transfer your tracks and mixes to a computer over USB 2 for CD burning and sharing online.

Despite its go-anywhere compact design, smaller than a paperback book, the DP004 is simple enough for students, songwriters and musicians who want to keep their recording process simple and creative.

Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
This is my first Tascam product....However, it seems to be made well, & should last many years with a little TLC!!!!
Features
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
The DP-004 has many features for its' size!!! It sure beats recording 35 years ago in my bathroom with a portable cassette recorder!!!! A backlit LCD display would be most helpful!!!!
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
Tascam DP-004 in my opinion, has somewhat of a high learning curve!!!! Perhaps, this is because I am over 50 years of age & am familiar with recording on reel to reel or cassette!!!!
Sound
How is the tone?
Tone depends on quality of headphones used....I am using audio-technica ATH-M30 headphones purchased from AMS....Perhaps I will upgrade in the future....
Reliability
How has it stood up over time?
Only had the DP-004 for a few days, once again, it should last for many years!!!!
General
Your general opinion of this product.
The DP-004 is a real bargain for the $$$ paid!!!! After "mastering" this recorder, I may purchase a DP-008 in the future!!!! I did not want to invest a higher amount of $$$ at this time!!!!
