TASCAM DP-03SD Digital Portastudio Multitrack Recorder Features

  • 8-track Digital Portastudio
  • Records to SD/SDHC Card media
  • Import WAV files from USB
  • Built-in stereo condenser microphone
  • Two XLR microphone inputs with phantom power
  • 1/4 inch stereo line inputs
  • Switchable instrument-level input for guitar/bass direct recording
  • Multi-band mastering effects
  • 2-band EQ per track
  • Internal reverb processor with dedicated send per track
  • Chromatic Tuner and Metronome

  • Optional RC-3F footswitch offers three switches for punch-in and transport operation
  • Compact and lightweight
A pair of stereo condenser microphones is built into the front panel of the DP-03, helpful for capturing a rehearsal, live performance or songwriting ideas. Also included are a pair of high-quality XLR microphone preamps with phantom power for condenser microphones. 1/4 inch line inputs are also available, and an instrument-level switch allows you to record a guitar or bass without a direct box. A three-button footswitch, the RC-3F, is available for control and punch in.

Routing the inputs to one of the eight tracks is simple, and you can record two at a time until you fill up all eight. A tuner and metronome are built-in for tight-sounding tracks, each with its own dedicated button for quick access. Track can be edited with commands like copy/paste, silence, clone track and undo. Bouncing is also available, even bouncing all eight tracks down to one or two. There’s even the option to import a WAV file through USB.

Each track has its own send to a stereo reverb processor as well as two-band shelving EQ. Once you’ve perfected your mix with the 45mm faders, pan knobs, reverb and EQ, record it to the dedicated stereo master track. Your mix can be processed with mastering effects like EQ and limiting for a tight, modern sound. When you’re satisfied, transfer your mix to a computer over USB 2.0.

Easy To Use Digital Multitrack Recorder
What is your opinion of this product?
I spent decades using Tascam's tape multitrack recorders and this one makes for an easy transition to digital. The menus are easy to navigate and do not interfere with the creative process. I've used several DAWs over the last decade and find them easy to get into a tangle of menu messes before getting to a final mix. This doesn't happen here and its sound is really good. I still use and prefer tape but this one is getting a lot of use these days, sometimes using both this and tape for a final mix. It does make song recall much faster and that's a big plus. Overall, I am very happy with thus unit.

worth the money....but
What is your opinion of this product?
Really nice compact and convenient way to put down some quality tracks......definately worth the money, but I did have to return the first one.....the read out (home) window went crazy and started to not download, then when it did it came in upside down......return was easy and I had a new one in 2 days.....really good customer service from AMS.....however the new unit did have a glitch.....the pan knobs didn't work....after a few start ups they kicked in and have been working ever since....keeping my fingers crossed........but this is a fine unit......

More than worth it!
What is your opinion of this product?
I bought this for times when my P.C. would go down. I run PRO TOOLS and I can;t believe the sound of this,( lil" -but powerful machine), as it totally surpasses PRO TOOLS in the quality of sound department. I don't know if it's TASCAM'S CONVERTERS , but try it and I bet you won't believe your ears. Also, what really wowed me was that sound was made without any EQ or COMPRESSION/ or any plug-in at all, in that matter, although it has a EQ. and Compressor and a MASTER one of each with and without total bandwidth for mastering your tunes.A bit complicated when you get to the transferring to your P.C. and similar stuff, otherwise these machines,instead of software, will be the future;( I.M.H.O. )

A GREAT deal on a WONDERFUL recorder.
What is your opinion of this product?
If I could give this recorder 6-starts I would do it in a second. It's so easy to learn when compared to the Korg 4-track I had, it's unbelievable. I've been busy with it since the first day and I'm still learning... not through lack of trying, but because of the large variety of things that I can do with the thing.

Fantastic device!!!
What is your opinion of this product?
It records beautifully, as I have come to expect from Tascam. The sound is crisp and pure, with no ambient him or hiss. I use it constantly, and will continue to do so. The portability is incredible
