New streamlined unit with a built-in CD-RW recorder, 40GB hard drive, and USB 2.0 connection
Tacam's DP02 makes recording simple by matching 8-track CD-quality recording with a Portastudio interface - so you can ditch the menus and concentrate on the music. A pair of record-quality Tascam mic pres feature XLR inputs with phantom power for condenser mics and a guitar in for direct recording. Each channel gives you dedicated controls for instant access to fader level, record arm/track mute, pan, effect send, high and low EQ. There's also an EQ frequency button for finer control over the mix.
Two effects processors are included in the DP02. A multieffects processor on the input provides great-sounding overdrive, flange, delay and more for your guitar, vocal, drum and bass tracks. In addition, there's a reverb processor on a send and return for adding hall, room, plate or chamber reverb to your mix. The DP02 is loaded with great Tascam extras like a chromatic tuner, metronome, and bar-and-beat display for getting around your song.
The DP02 records two channels at a time to a built-in 40GB hard drive. When you're satisfied with your production, arm the dedicated master track for your stereo mixdown. You can transfer your tracks and mixes or backup your song to a computer through a speedy USB 2.0 connection or burn it to a CD with the slot-loading drive. No other workstation makes recording so simple, affordable and fun as the Tascam DP02.
