The TASCAM DP-24SD - A Complete Digital Studio

The DP-24SD Digital Portastudio is a 24-track workstation, allowing eight tracks of simultaneous recording. The built-in mixer includes everything you need for a professional-sounding mix, from EQ and reverb to amp simulation and multi-band mastering effects. The Digital Portastudio series creates finished productions without the need for a computer, instead using a simple-to-use control surface to keep you creative.

For clear display of your mix, the DP-24SD has a large color LCD displaying tracks, meters, and effects parameters. A set of 12 encoders control EQ, effects sends, and panning. Built-in effects include compression, guitar amp modeling, delay, reverb, with a total of 10 effects processors available during mixing.

Eight XLR mic/line inputs each provide phantom power for condenser microphones, switchable in banks of four. One input includes an instrument-level impedence switch for direct input recording of guitar or bass. Balanced monitor outputs and effects sends are also provided on the rear panel. A USB output allows tracks and mixes recorded to your SD card to be transferred to a computer for CD burning or sharing online.

For a complete music production on a desktop, there's no simpler choice than the DP-24SD.

I purchased mine 2.5 years ago. I use it as a personal recorder for my own songs, and recording small bands. The menu is easy to navigate. Getting a recording is a simple process, much more simple than my Pro Tools DAW. That is my favourite thing about this unit, it's simplicity, and ease to get things rolling. The mic pres are plain, nothing special, but nothing wrong with them either. The on board effects, I pass on. Could be better. When I mixdown, I run it out my DAW, and through a vintage mixer, to get some of that analogue goodness. I don't use it for its all-in-one mixdown and mastering capabilities, I do use it to record everything I need, especially in a mobile situation. I then transfer my tracks via USB to my DAW, and mix/master from there. Highly recommend, especially for the price.

Best thing I have ever purchased. all the features you need and portable.. I can take it with me to record tracks outside my studio. VERY easy to use and create dynamic recording. If you learn this machine in and out it will do everything you need it to do. Watch Phil Tipping on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ev_w-qP7IWk -- A brilliant series on how to use this machine. It doubles up as an AWESOME live mixer. I recommend for all home studio recorders and someone looking to get started.

I owed this recorder when I had no money. At best it will make a demo but has no dynamic range and has very low quality mic pre-amps. Stick a $1000 mic in. It sounds the same as a $5 mic. Tascam used to be the latest technology. Now they are just old and tired. Nothing new in 20 years except a couple of jacks. If you have a bit more, buy a Zoom recorder and get yourself some of today's technology. Oh, and while I'm at it, this is an actual review - not some guy who says he likes it. Reviews have information about products.

I purchased this recorder for my home studio and I have to say, it is awesome. It has a lot more features than I will use in my studio but is very easy to setup and use. Well worth the money, in fact at the time of purchase it was $150 below what Axe Music was charging. If you want more info you can download the manual from the Tascam site. One other thing I should mention, built very solid - much better than I originally expected.
