Discontinued - now replaced by the Tascam DP006.

Tascam Portastudio's digital sibling has arrived and it's just as easy to use as the original analogue cassette version.

The Tascam DP-004 is an easy to use portable 4-track recorder with a layout much like Tascam's industry-changing cassette recorders. Being digital, the Tascam DP-004 has modern features: USB 2.0, it's smaller than a paperback, and features built-in a stereo condenser microphone, so you can take the Tascam DP-004 Pocketstudio anywhere. If you want to connect other instruments or microphones, the DP-004 has two 1/4-inch inputs which accept microphone or line-level signals.

The first input can also switch to Hi-Z so it's suitable for recording your bass or electric guitar directly.

Audio is saved to an 1 GB SD card at 16-bit/44.1kHz CD quality. Other features include a track bounce function, flexible editing, a built-in tuner, and a metronome on the Tascam DP-004 pocketstudio.

The Tascam DP-004 Digital Pocketstudio follows the Portastudio cassette 4-track tradition with a user-friendly layout. Assign an input to any of the four tracks just by pressing two buttons. Hit the record button once to arm the tracks for recording and a second touch starts the recording. Ajust all the audio levels by using the input knobs and viewing the meters on the DP-004's LCD screen. Audio records as a CD-quality 16-bit/44.1kHz WAV file on an included 1GB SD card. SD Card media is great because it's removable, expandable, and affordable. You can drop in another SD card, just like you'd put in a new tape to start another recording. And for longer recording sessions, you can put in a higher-capacity SD card.

After you've mixed four tracks together you can bounce them over to a new track and make room for more overdub layers, the Tascam DP-004 pocketstudio is only limited by the amount of layers you can dream up. The Tascam DP-004 Digital Pocketstudio also features flexible editing tools, so you can clean up mistakes or silence noises in a track. If you happen to record over something by mistake, an Undo button wil correct the mistake. Other professional features include an Autopunch and Repeat mode for the recorder. There's even a built-in guitar tuner and a metronome, making the Tascam DP-004 pocketstudio an incredibly convenient tool.

Once you've recorded your tracks, it's easy to get them to your Mac or PC to load to a webpage, e-mail, load into your portable media player, or burn to a CD. The Tascam DP-004 pocketstudio connects to your computer via fast USB 2.0.

Don't be tied down to only record in one place, go anywhere and still get great sound with the Tascam DP-004 Digital Pocketstudio.

Tascam DP 004 Portable Digital Pocketstudio with 1gb SD card Reviews


Tascam DP004 Pocketstudio

Well I ordered this item from Dolphin the day before yesterday, recieved in via FedeX yesterday - and have got to grips with it all in less than a day and I\'m normally a bit of a techno-numpty.

This pocketstudio is very compact - but is solid and has all the knobs and whistles I need to do multitrack recording to CD quality. The two stereo built-in microphones (the main reason I bought this over the Boss Micro BR which doesn\'t have a stereo microphone at all) work great! The USB conection was plug and play - no software downloads needed etc.

All in all, it does what it says on the box except for one thing. It\'s just a little too large for any of my pockets ;) And one more thing...make sure you get the power adapter - the batteries that came with mine have already run out.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
