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.

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.
