General Your general opinion of this product. Amazing. Everyone should own one of these whether or not your a musician. This has the capacity to function as a court reporter or capture beautiful music. It's file capacity or looping to adjusting all parameters. Fabulous! Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Very strong and of quality. Don't record in the shower or play hacky sack with it. 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? You can record and play back instantly. You'll need to purchase a power supply separately, otherwise use 2 "AA"s. It seems like it can be complex due to the many wonderful functions it offers. But it is a recording studio in your palm. Your greatest task will be positioning the recorder in different locations to find the sweet spot of the room. You can still mix your way around anything with this. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Too soon to tell. The omnidirectional condenser mics are fabulous and the additional external mic input/ bypass is great as well. One big studio condenser mic in the center of the room mixes very well as well. Remember this is a recording studio in your hand for $70.00 to $100.00. What are you waiting for. I compared this to something called a "Z**M H6". Sound How is the tone? Exact, crystal clear. Better than an old Studer 2" tape machine the size of a washing machine I had in the 1970's. Aquire two things Reliability How has it stood up over time? Too soon to tell but it's getting lots of use.
Great sound for the money!!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Well made, not made to be tossed around, just got it, so far it plays what I record well. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Features for me as a guitar player is to be able to slow a track down without lowering the pitch 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? This does require a bit of a sit down with the manual as there are some sub programs to navigate, but you can skirt the real deep stuff and just record and play. Sound How is the tone? The tone is suprisingly good for a unit of this size. Reliability How has it stood up over time? I've only had it for a couple of weeks, but so far, no issues. General Your general opinion of this product. Good recorder for the money if you want to record a rehersal or some ideas on the fly, and bring them back to the home studio.
Can't believe it's only $99!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The unit seems to be well made. Nice feel to the controls, and placement really does make it easy to operate with one hand. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Tascam did a good job with the mics. Does a real good job of picking up the low end and sounds nicely balanced. The Limiter works well, but I haven't used the 'Peak Reduction' feature yet. Not sure if I'd ever use the guitar tuner feature. 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? Menu system is logical, and it's easy to find things. Some of the things in the display are really tiny, though. Even with my reading glasses, it can be hard to see. Sound How is the tone? Sound quality is great. Nice low end response and smooth top end. Typical Tascam. Reliability How has it stood up over time? I've only had this unit for a few weeks now, but so far so good. I've owned other Tascam products, and have never had a problem. General Your general opinion of this product. For $99, this unit is a good value.
