Recording Should Be Easy ...and it doesn't get any easier than the DP-02 Digital Portastudio TASCAM's DP-02 is the 8-track digital recorder that makes recording fun, ditching menus for simple knobs and faders. Based on over 25 years of cassette Portastudios ™ , it sports dedicated controls for level, pan, effects send and EQ instead of the menu-cursor interface found on most other recorders. You make music with two hands with the DP-02 - just reach and twist a knob when your creativity strikes. The DP-02 records up to 8 tracks to its built-in 40GB hard drive. A pair of CD-quality XLR mic inputs includes phantom power for condenser mics and a direct guitar input. High and low EQ controls for level and frequency are provided for every channel. It also includes a multieffects processor, stereo reverb, even a dedicated stereo channel for recording your mix. You can transfer tracks and mixes to a computer using USB 2.0, or burn a master disc in the CD drive. Also available is the DP-02CF , which records to Compact Flash media to make it easier than ever to afford a digital Portastudio. Don't spend hours configuring a computer for recording when you can afford a simple box dedicated to recording music. No other workstation makes recording as easy, affordable and fun as the TASCAM DP-02. For a more portable solution, take a look at the DP-008 battery-powered Pocketstudio with built-in microphones.
