    everything is said in other reviews ...

    USE

    very simple

    SONORITS

    there's good

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I sold my BR600 for DP008
    the more the DP 008: simpler less effect and no rhythm box, phantom power supply there is no on br, more physical knobs, memory card of greater capacity and more standard as the br.

    Cons: simpler less effect and no rhythm box (but this is also a plus depending on what you need ..
    the equalizer as the br 600 is not great, a real little equalizer would be welcome
    in short, I'm pretty happy to have my updat br 600 to 008 dp
  • FOR EARLY MODEL IS COOL

    DVR SD card. Recording two tracks, eight tracks playing. 16 bit 44.1 kHz.

    UTILIZATION

    The device is very simple to use. We consult the manual on a few points (export files, for example), but overall, if you know how to use a microwave or a washing machine, you are qualified to register with the DP-008. The potentiometers are handy. The manual is clear.

    Note that formatting the SD card and the (long) file conversion. Waw are a little baroque, but it's just history to be rude :)

    SOUNDS

    Regarding sound business spoil a little. Let us: for the price, and given that for which the unit is designed, DP-008 is not to throw away, but he is not blameless.

    1. The headphone amp is outrageous: it introduces breath and proves clearly undersized if you plug in a headset with a little serious impedance exceeds headphones all-comers. It was still a pleasant surprise, once the files transferred to a computer sequencer, to see that blizzard steppe fell.
    2. The pre-amps are in my opinion the biggest weakness: difficult to exploit them seriously, including pickups with high output (KM184, C414). Entering in line for a preamp is much better and there is less shame the result. I said I'm still pretty intolerant breath ...

    Converters do their job. Again, no need to compare them with the studio equipment, but the momentum is not ridiculous.

    The reverb is correct and has the luxury to be configurable.

    OVERALL OPINION

    In conclusion, Tascam is a concept very attractive, a well made and ergonomic. Too bad as it is, ie without meaning to my preamp out, it can allow some serious recordings and remains confined to the role of musical notepad. The day the same fate Tascam unit with preamp DR-680, DP-008 is terrible, which is not the case now.

    Connectivity is sufficient (2 inputs IN) that can record two tracks simultaneously.
    External microphones can record live (not tested)
    The backup is on a removable sdram.
    The general characteristics are sufficient for home studio use

    UTILIZATION

    For me, the strong point compared to competitors.
    No need to read the manual, the ergonomics are excellent and everything makes sense. The operations are reduced and the "pots" facilitate physical settings.
    The only downside is the lack of "action" for recording. The only disponbibles units are the units of time (minutes, seconds and 10zièmes) damage.

    SOUNDS

    Little breath, gain correct.
    Very satisfactory

    I've had it 2 months and I use it all the time for backtracks for live recordings ... it is used as a magneto classic, simple and intuitive.
    I had the Boss BR80 which has more features but usability is questionable. The TASCAM DP008 records and returns, there is "only" but it does it well. I recommend it.

  • Affordable, Durable, Portable

    Tascam DP-008Published on 12/11/12 at 23:13
    The Tascam DP-008 is affordable and portable. It is small and lightweight; take it with you anywhere to record. It records and allows you to get your files into your computer via USB. It does have a built in microphone preamps. These preamps are not the best in the world but they will do just fine with a decent microphone.

    UTILIZATION

    You can record up to 2 tracks simultaneously with the dP-008 and it has 2 XLR mic inputs both with phantom power. It comes with a chromatic tuner and metronome built into it that was a great extra unexpected feature to have in a unit for this price range. This portable recorded is also durable, out of all of the times that I have used it; it has been......

It comes with a chromatic tuner and metronome built into it that was a great extra unexpected feature to have in a unit for this price range. This portable recorded is also durable, out of all of the times that I have used it; it has been dropped and even stepped on before while in a bag of mine and it never stopped working.

    SOUNDS

    I love how you can run this with AA batteries so that no matter where you are you can make music and do not have to always have it plugged in. It does come with a power supply though so you don’t have to worry about using batteries all the time or going out and buying the power supply.

    OVERALL OPINION

    As far as effects, you will not get many of them just some reverb. It would have been nice to have more effects but at this price I am surprised it has reverb and 2 band EQ controls on each channel. All of the knobs on the front of the unit are pretty well made and feel like they should be on an expensive recorder. The track wheel that works the screen functions is even pretty good and not cheaply made. If I could make one change with the DP-008 it would be to make the display screen a little more vibrant. It looks dull when looking at it in all light sources. But that is something minor compared to how great this affordable recorder actually is.

    - How long have you use it?
    3 / 4 months but very occasionally

    Not

    - What is so special that you like best
    Can record a demo pretty quickly and a backing track to practice on a solo instance.
    I think it has a tuner which is a nice touch

    - What is so special that you like the least?
    1. On the one hand we can only record two tracks simultaneously. It can generate some who would like his group in a registry renewal decision
    Moreover 2.By way the menu navigation is not particularly intuitive and it is often necessary to resume the manual for some operations

    3. The metronome is not loud and I get around the track by recording a pb battery

    - How would you rate the quality / price?
    Excellent, I never imagined 10 years ago have an 8-track digital home

    - With experience, you do again this choice?
    Yes !!!!!

    As a side note, there are two types of entries for each track (line and microphone)
