        Comments about Tascam DP-008EX 8-Track Digital Pocketstudio:

        I purchased the DP-008EX for fun and ease of use. I am a solo musician and my main use is of course multi-track layering. Having had previously only used software based DAWs. I found this item to be very similar. I was very comfortable with the logical control layout and intuitive interface. The audio quality from both the internal mics and line inputs were amazing. The added convenience of basic effects like reverb, an on-board tuner and metronome coupled with the portability of being battery powered make this my "idea sketchpad for song structures." I am completely loving this purchase.

          Its like going into a studio but with a small budget. I love it actually. Try it out so you kinda have an idea for when you do go into a studio.

                      Great purchase experience thru B&H!

                      I ordered the Tascam 008ex digital recorder from B&H, they had my item in stock at a lower price than I could actually find the older Tascam 008 model for. They also threw in a very nice Gator bag in for free with my purchase. The bag is of very high quality, and definitely a big plus being that the bag was pretty pricy by itself. They did a great job with the packing of my item to make sure it wasn't damaged during shipping. B&H are surely the guys to go with for your audio and video needs. Great job! Thanks B&H!

                      Comments about Tascam DP-008EX 8-Track Digital Pocketstudio:

                      I got this to record voice overs for videos and to record audio books. It is not only an excellent recorder, it is also a daw, albeit a simple daw. You can add effects and master songs right in the machine itself. I personally don't edit in the Tascam, but I did test its various functions for warranty purposes, and they all work quite well. A person could do a great demo right out of the box - if you have a good mic, that is. The built-in mics are useless for pro work. I wouldn't use them for anything but note taking, and since this isn't a pocket recorder, I doubt I will ever use the internal mic. However, if you link a professional level 48v phantom powered condenser mic to this little box, you can produce professional recordings with ease.

                            I am an Acoustic player and this is perfect for overlaying vocal tracks and sound tracks. This has professional quality sound when I am plugged or unplugged. I'm loving it

                            Been doing computer based recording for some time and found that the hassles of setting up and tearing down keep me from recording. The DP-008EX is the opposite - it's an invitation to get it out any time and start some basic ideas, then refine them and add the other parts. With the XLRs, phantom power, dynamics processing, and mastering capabilities it makes producing simple but listenable music a snap. Besides, I can do my mixes in my easy chair...
