Product Review

Everything worked great, fat fingers wont help. sound was good, mics were good, easy operation. had it working for a few days, used the headphone socket to many times i guess..its the same problem with these small jacks that need unplugging on a regular basis.. I got the model 24.. soon forgot about the 300 i wasted on the portable..tho its a room mike now for the model 24, and maybe other tricks.

A nice portable digital recorder.

Product Review

This digital recorder has proven to be a great recorder for me to extend my work from my home studio. It records all instruments via 1/4 " inputs, or the stereo external mics with good quality sound, and even has great mixing effects. I carry it in my backpack everywhere, so that my music productions are continuous. It enables me to transfer ideas, and tracks to and from my DAW. A very good investment.

Slick little box of technology.

Product Review

I gave it 4 stars because I'm still trying to learn how to use it. I'm liking what I've learned about it so far, still much more to go. If you're an older rocker used to a 10" reel to reel like I am, it's going to take some time and effort to learn its' operation. It helps to be a teckno-wizzard.

Easy to use

Product Review

Being a tascam four track owner back in the 80s I am so happy to see that they still keep it simple. Although it a long way since cassettes the layout is quite the same and the quality is amazing. Getting through a recording from start to master is a breeze do to the step by step layout and the sound quality is crisp and clear. I would suggest this little gem to anyone who's getting started and wants to learn the recording process, but don't be fooled this machine will produce cd quality masters and a boat load of fun!
