MGR/ScottW.'s review"Tascam Pocket Studio 5"

Tascam Pocket Studio 5
I was looking for a "beginners" digital recorder at a relatively low price. As a songwriter, I do basic home demos, nothing very complicated, and I wanted something I could record on quickly but with a reasonable amount of quality. I did some research online and the PocketStudio5 seemed to have some good features. I bought this recording unit at Guitar Center in Minneapolis and paid $400.

I think the price is reasonable. I like the fact that it is easy to send mixed MP3 versions of your recorded songs to a computer.

This recorder was very difficult to figure out and use. The instruction manual left me confused in many cases. I was able to get helpful tips from the Tascam forums, but even with that help, I struggled to do even the most basic recording on this unit. The menu-driven operating system was too complicated. The display screen on the unit is hard to read. After two weeks of working with it and getting very little actual recording done, I traded it in for a cassette four-track recorder.

This was another letdown. The unit looks good, but is made mostly of plastic, and things like the faders seem very cheap and not sturdy.

I have much more experience with analog recording than with digital, so perhaps for some more technically-minded musicians, this will be a recorder they can work with. I know many people at the Tascam forums seemed happy with the PocketStudio5. But if you are new to digital recording and expect a recorder to be intuitive and easy to operate, I would recommend looking elsewhere.

I bought this product for my record and rhythms in order to then make improvisations.
The product was too evolve to use that I had.
I am separated and have been replaced by an MP3 that perfectly fulfilled the function (Roland R05)

Tascam Pocket Studio 5
I use it since the purchase date. I use it just now
I have not tried any other digital recorder.
Likes: The portability, versatility, style arranger is excellent, ease of programming of a song and the ability to record over. The sounds of generators without its correct. The brass of course send the funk styles. It is a small MIDI expander with nice audio and more.
I do not like: the management of different types of files on the card not obvious: mp3, smf, playlists ... You can not save changes to program sounds, volumes, effects, occurring as midi file (must go through the PC). You can not save the south.
It is a pity we can not import new styles (well not to my knowledge).
With experience, you do again this choice?
Yes probably, but I would look at lending to small sequencers Yamaha SY. I think they have an audio input. Most powerful noon, but they record the audio? No idea
Value for money: it's an old product, difficult to assess today.
