lbgo000's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Well!"

Tascam DP-24
Recording to SD card - that's exactly what I tried - no noise, no fear of vibration.
24/48 - maximum sample
Midi in / out - timecode sync master / slave - midiclock out - remote in / out
No spdif - damage
Simultaneous recording 8 tracks mono (it only records mono files)
Simultaneous playback 24 tracks mono (16 mono + 6 stereo faders) in 16/44 (demo compos given with DP24)
Record 8 mono tracks simultaneously with the reading of 8 mono tracks in 24/48 - I have not had any opportunity to push my tested further
Combo XLR Inputs 8/1 with jack switch hi-z
2 outputs for external effects in jack
1 monitor output into two mono jacks
A master output in RCA
1 headphone
1 pedal input

UTILIZATION

The unit is rugged enough to share input level pots - very cheaps.
Faders pleasant. Large color screen - great practice!
Use is extremely intuitive, very few menus, everything is very well thought out - really Tascam hat.
Starting the bike only takes a few seconds.
Automatic backup - the rules of Tascam - or the dedicated button.
And the big step forward for Tascam - recording directly. wav (this is also the only format that includes DP24), searchable, modifiable using USB or directly on the card in the computer. No more proprietary formats!
However there are also flats
- Remote control by noon. Very complicated to set up with sequencers, I arrived with Studio One and Midi Translator of Rome, but I spare you the details ... But what took them to assign the controllers with the number of banks noon, but really!
- Firmware bug: if I plant normalizes the master 24/48 (ok so 16/44), the system clock resets every time I turned off the bike, plant from time to time with certain commands editing (cut, insert).
- Synchronization with the sequencer for timecode MMC (Cubase, Studio One) does not work well - it seems that Tascam has corrected this with the new firmware - I have to test.
The height - the minimum loop editing is 4 seconds! What good is the beautiful display of the waveform of the game released?! But hey, I'm not editing with DP24, but once I spent the files inside of my computer's sequencer.
Strongly updates to fix all that.

SOUNDS

Recording quality is very good (I record in 24/48).
Effects - very average, but I only like the DP24, unwanted recorder - mix, arrangement, I finalized with Studio One on the computer. I wanted to forget the material at the time of the sound - with DP24 I got what I wanted. on the other hand then I prefer to work the computer - much less headlock and the quality is better

OVERALL OPINION

It's been one month that I have, so my advice is not exhaustive.
I started with Roland Vs 840 and then quickly switched to the 100% solution comp (Firepod Presonus). But over time I start getting tired - I wanted something more intuitive at the time of registration.
And now here bah - I press the On button - it lights up immediately. I press the big button Rec - it saves. Dp 24 offers a lot of comfort that allows this type of thinking to more music. It is a machine for the lazy - I'm - and I'm very happy with this material.

didou650's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" super outtil"

Tascam DP-24
24 tracks including 8 can be used simultaneously.
entries are taken mixed; XLR, Jack, very practical. In output jacks to the monitor and RCA stereo, a headphone jack, a footswitch jack.
Entered, outputs for schedule syncrho, USB port for transfer to PC.
A 2 gig SD card for storage (I personally have put a 16-gigabyte (watch the formatting is very long, more than half an hour)
The recorder, CD player is also very practical, I served as a home CD player.
The color screen is readable and very enjoyable.

UTILIZATION

Operation is intuitive, the faders and knobs are nice to handle.
The manual is not always clear against but overall it comes to still end with patience. A bit of a chore as the use of effects.
Modes "mixdown and mastering are well thought out, especially mastering mode with settings pre-defined, very useful for me as a leek

Good accuracy also on the editions of tracks.

SOUNDS

I was amazed by the quality of sound.

OVERALL OPINION

I do that has been barely two months, so I have not come full circle.
Before this camera I had a four track cassette recorder (time of the Stone Age)
I then went on a Roland VS 840, 8-track digital format, ZIP disks.
I I love is the rapididé in use, registration, quality known her.
Value for money, it's not bad. I know that at this price you can get a good sound card and a PC, but about choice, I prefer a reliable and touch.
To summarize, I'm not a pro in music but TASCAM has been a revolution for me.
