« Poor design, too bad »Published on 09/16/14 at 07:25
Unusable for recordings. See below.
Sound was actually OK.
A 4track Portastudio that was based on a good idea (data minidisc), but a poor design in the end. The system was never able to process correctly recordings with bouncing, resulting in a loss of data known as the "skip bug" where there was a data loss/skip during recording that couldn't be modified/erased/re-recorded. Result: a waste of time.
This was the last Tascam product I bought. Will probably never buy Tascam (and associated brands (Roland, HK, etc. ) again as a result because they just ignored the problem, were never able to find a decent fix, and prefered just to abandon the product and the users who bought it.
