It will take a while to get the hang of the Tascam DP03 with the small screen and trying to function through it. Learning to work your way through the menu’s. If you have a need to have real sliders and knobs to do your tracks then this is perfect for you. This can basically do anything that a computer can do when it comes to recording music. You just won’t be able to get your final sound, but I feel like its perfect for quick recordings. Also you don’t ever have to worry about it crashing or freezing on you because its not a PC or a Mac. It truly makes recording as easy as possible.
Quality is good, it is well built. I would not take any chances with dropping it or setting something on top of it though. Faders or sliders don't seem to be very strong.
You will need to refer to the manual of the DP03 more than a several times, because the menu’s are a little confusing and the screen is so small. I wish it had an input VGA to plug in a bigger screen and I think it would have suited us better. With the good solid range of effects and CD burning right from the DP03 you just can go wrong.
