User Review

  • Summary: This is the practice powerhouse for anything electric: I have used it to work out fast country fiddle lines, work on bass tutorials or practice my bass alongside our cover material. Easy to transpose the material, slow down sections and set up loop regions to concentrate on specific parts of songs. Nobody will expect perfect effects or drum loops in such a small package, but they work pretty darn well for what they are worth.
  • Pros: Incredibly versatile and good quality
  • Cons: Flimsy plastic hatch (conceals USB and SD Card)

Cheap Build

  • Summary: It is a good little tool for what it is as far as the software is concerned. BUT, it sucks because the input jack is garbage. It will break eventually AND there is no apparent way to get to the jack to make a simple repair. There are many who have experienced this issue.

Plastic...plastic

  • Summary: This is mostly a useful tool and after a while of using it the quality of the recording is pretty good too. But the build quality is poor for Tascam. The battery door on my unit falls off and the controls just dont feel like a quality product. The built in guitar sounds and non programable drum features are no more than toys and not really usable. This goes for the FX chains too which are basic to say the least.

Would have been perfect with better firmware

DPD1, amazon.com

  • Summary: For practicing, it's a great tool. It makes it extremely easy to practice anywhere you want, without having to drag a bunch of stuff around. Yes, the slow down feature sounds like a bad cell phone call, but it works. It wasn't that long ago that all you had was records, which you had to factor in the pitch change if you wanted to slow it down. So anything is an improvement over that. The bad part comes from how they configured the firmware.

Had to downgrade my rating because of hardware problem

Rider Boy, amazon.com

  • Summary: This recorder has been a fantastic aid for learning to play the guitar. It's not perfect, though. For a long time I just used it for the drum tracks because the overly complicated operating instructions intimidated me. When I finally began using it for recording rhythm tracks to use for practicing scales, then I really began to unlock its potential.

  • Summary: I can't imagine the issues with the file system these other people are having. Works very well as a practice aid, I use it religiously and it has helped my playing. Also used as a remote stereo microphone set up for my DSLR...Excellent!
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Versatile

Sweet overengineered toy

R. Rangel "Mr. Prytania", amazon.com
13 December 2010
  • Summary: I bought this to assist in recording my guitar classes and learning guitar parts. It truly is a digital recorder on steroids. It has so many features that I'm still exploring them. Maybe I overbought. I'm hoping to grow into it. The primary functions I use it for are classroom recording (flawless), playback shift (flawless) and easy copy to my laptop (perfect).

Fantastically Frustrated!!!!!

Luis Vazquez, amazon.com
30 September 2010
  • Summary: Firstly I must say that this is the best portable practice unit I've ever owned. I can take the SD card and create my own folders of music that I wish to practice to. Be sure that the samples of music be it MP3 or WAV are at least 128 bit or they will fail to play. Every thing from the drum patterns & effects to altering the playback and record functions are awesome BUT! and it's a BIG BUTT.
