The Tascam DP-24 Digital Portastudio

Tascam DP-24 Portastudio

At the 2012 NAMM Show, Tascam introduced the DP-24 is a 24-track Digital Portastudio with solid-state recording, a color LCD and channel strip controls to make recording simple so you stay creative.

Up to eight tracks can be recorded at a time through its combination XLR and ¼” combo jacks. Input processing like compression and limiting are available during recording, as well as guitar amp simulation and multi-effects for use with the instrument-level input.

Once recorded, tracks can be viewed and mixed on the large colour LCD and dedicated mixing controls, such as nineteen linear faders and a dozen channel strip encoders.

Two Mixdown effects including reverb and chorus are also available, as well as a mastering effect. Once finished, songs can be transferred to computer over USB or written to CD with the built-in CD-RW drive.

  1. I think i will have to return this unit. as much as i like it, the monitors stay on when you are trying to record. not a problem if you have 2 rooms with a huge pane of glass. It is really great to try and record while the monitors bleed into the mic. Sure, I know what you are thinking… turn the monitors down. You can do that, but it turns the headphones down with it.

    I am truly pissed off about this…

  2. My DP24 is only 10 days old. And it just locked up!
    -Tascam had no answers. They simply told me to return it.
    As mush as I like this unit I don’t know if I will repurchase it.
    Firmware updates? Please! –Version 2.0 anyone? -Tascam?…Hello?
