The TASCAM’s DP-004 Digital Pocketstudio is based on 30 years of easy-to-use cassette Portastudios, and updated with four tracks of CD-quality digital recording. Like those groundbreaking Portastudios, a row of knobs set levels and pan instead of a list of menus.
The DP-004 can record two sources at once to the included 1GB SD Card. A built-in stereo condenser microphone makes it simple to record anywhere you go, perfect for concerts, rehearsals and songwriting inspirations. A pair of 1/4″ jacks on the rear panel allow you to connect your own microphones or sources. You can even switch the inputs to guitar level for recording.
You can connect to the Pocketstudio via two 1/4″ mic line inputs, switchable guitar input, headphone line out or USB 2.0 connection.
For recording options you have four track digital multitrack recording with 44.1kHz/16-bit WAV recording.Â The unit records directly to SD cards with autopunch, repeat and record undo functions.Â You can also have a dedicated stereo mixdown track.
As for power, just a couple AA batteries will keep this going for nearly 8 hours.
Street price is right at $200 bills.
