Enough simultaneous inputs to track the whole band
Track the whole band at once, with the TASCAM DP-24SD Digital Portastudio. The DP-24SD comes loaded with eight individual inputs. Each input is equipped with an XLR-1/4″ combo jack and a microphone preamplifier, complete with phantom power for your condenser mics. That means even if you use a handful of microphones on drums and a couple more on guitars and bass, you’ll still have an input left on the DP-24SD to track vocals.
Loaded with onboard effects and powerful built-in signal processors
No studio is complete without quality effects and signal processors. That’s why TASCAM loaded their DP-24SD Digital Portastudio with a ton of studio-style tools. Record with vital processors such as equalizers, compressors, and limiters, while the DP-24SD’s onboard guitar-amp-simulation engine adds real amplifier sound to your instrument input. You can sweeten your sound with reverb, chorus, and other enhancements during mixdown. What’s more, the TASCAM DP-24SD’s powerful onboard mastering effects let you get the most out of your final mixes.
Intuitive channel-strip-style controls make tracking and mixing easy
Why wade through tedious menus for the controls that should be close at hand? TASCAM built the DP-24SD to be both powerful and intuitive to use, with none of the frustrating awkwardness that plagues over-engineered gear. The DP-24SD’s simple master channel-strip section gives you hands-on controls for your channel EQ, pan, and send settings. There’s also an easy-to-read color display that gives you instant feedback as you tweak your channel settings, effects, and processors, as well as dedicated controls for all essential recording functions.
