The unit is equipped with color LCD and channel strip controls to make recording simple so the user can stay creative.

For mixdown, the DP-32SD offers 20 channel faders and 12 rotary controls for EQ, Pan and effects including reverb and chorus.

Once finished, songs can be transferred to computer over USB to publish the songs on the Internet, for example.

Various edit functions includes COPY PASTE, COPY INSERT, MOVE PASTE, MOVE INSERT, CLONE TRACK, OPEN, SILENCE, CUT, CLEAN OUT, plus Undo/Redo with an Undo history, giving you the freedom to take chances. It can all be undone, re-done, and "re-un-done."

Comments about Tascam Dp-32Sd 32-Track Digital Portastudio (New):

instead of adding tracks you should have looked into a better hard drive and burner that would last thru many hours of use. what was great was the speed one could navigate and learn to use it.

    Comments about Tascam Dp-32Sd 32-Track Digital Portastudio (New):

    I purchased the Tascam DP32 to replace a Roland VS840EX and VS880Expanded that were starting to have some issues after 15 years of above average usage in my home studio. I make music for personal enjoyment and to share with friends and family. I'm not looking to achieve any better quality recording than what the DP32 can produce, and I'm well pleased with the sound quality that it delivers. It more than fits my needs in that area, and sounds better than any 45rpm or vinyl LP that I have played on elsewhere using much more expensive equiptment.

    As noted in the pro's, the DP32 seems very well constructed, having
    a metal top panel and faders that have good solid resistance when sliding. You can feel the quality as well as hearing it. Having the
    headphone jack in the front of the unit is by well planned design, and the vivid multi-color screen seems light years away from the green or
    orange screens typically found on other units and keyboards in this price range. Combined with the 32 tracks, 8 inputs, and SD card
    format, it's almost worth the price of admission based on these features alone. The built in effects are simply an added plus, and
    while they do sound good, they are just lacking in quantity. Most noteably, in the guitar effects that provide various lower cabinet models but don't seem to provide amp models relating to amplifier
    heads such as "Twin" or "Voxy". Even my small Roland VS840EX provided that 15 years ago, as well as much greater editing capability
    of the various models themselves. The same seems to apply for lack of effects such as various mic models...unless I just haven't found
    them yet. Furthermore, the apparent inability to save multipul mixing scenes seems odd, especially considering that both of my much older Roland units could save up to eight mixdowns at the push of two buttons, and no, I'm not talking about virtual tracks.

    While my unit does contain the CD burner as well as the SD card and makes a great quality CD, the CD mechanism itself seems flimsy
    and cheap since the tray seems to be "cut out", (more like a partial tray) while after pressing the CD button to open it, you have to
    manually pull it open as well as push it in to close it much like a lower end 1970's cassette recorder. This makes me question the quality of the other internal parts of the CD burner such as the laser lens. With that said, I found the ability to load songs and arrange the tracking order onto CD a very easy and quick process, just to say something nice about burning to a CD. (Much faster than loading a different song on my VS840EX).

    On the down side, the inability to "see" all pan positions at the same time during mixdown is frustrating, as you have to select the individual track and use the single pan knob to make adjustments. It doesnt have a pan knob for each track like the Roland VS880, or a pan screen showing multipul channels like the VS840EX. It would seem that since they make a screen showing all the tracks to assign an input that they could have done the same for panning as well, showing all 32 tracks at once and use the cursor to select between them as well as the jog wheel to pan, like on the Roland units EZ
    feature. Also, lack of Digital I/O is worth noting as a negative as well.

    With that said, the owners manual is confusing as heck. It bounces around like a fish out of water by having you refer back and forth to various pages often for information, is poorly worded, and dosen't really follow any logical order, all printed on thin paper stock, not like the paper quality type of manuals you used to get years ago.

    To sum it up, despite my particular complaints about this unit, overall I am quite statisfied with the DP32, considering I paid more for my Roland equiptment years ago back in 1998. The Roland had more effects, and the Tascam has more tracks. I'm just glad that someone is still making a Portastudio.

    Amazing Portable studio

    By 

    from Edison, NJ

    Comments about Tascam Dp-32Sd 32-Track Digital Portastudio (New):

    This Tascam Portastudio is great for taking your studio on the road with you. I've used this on multiple occasions when an artist wasn't able to come into the studio. Great sound and very easy to use.

    Cons

    Comments about Tascam Dp-32Sd 32-Track Digital Portastudio (New):

    If you're trying to minimalize your recording setup, this is a great place to start! With this you can eliminate your computer and have an all in one box! With the ability to record and mix right in the box, AND export tracks to a computer, the flexibility of this thing is great. I wish it had direct outs built in, though I suppose that would make it cost much more. In general this is a great solution for live recording and computer-less work!

    Pros

    • Ease of Use
    • Portability
    • SD card memory

    Cons

    • Limited Editing Functions
    • Slightly Noisey Preamps

    Best Uses

    • Churches

    Comments about Tascam Dp-32Sd 32-Track Digital Portastudio (New):

    This is the first Tascam porta studio with an SD card function on board. 8 XLR combo jacks allow for recording of 8 microphones or instruments at one time with up to 32 tracks of total recording. Everything will be saved to the SD card memory and can be transferred to a computer after the recording is complete. This is pretty much the ultimate all in one portable tabletop recording solution.

    The TASCAM DIGITAL PORTASTUDIO DP-32 is one of the most affordable ways to remove the computer screen from personal recording. With 8 combo 1/4" - XLR inputs with +48V Phantom Power, 24 tracks (12 mono, 6 stereo) of the DP-32 tracks (8 mono, 12 stereo) with the ability to select between stereo and mono and man other great features, TASCAM DIGITAL PORTASTUDIO DP-32 is a great choice for multi-channel home recording.

          This is the best portable recorder on the market. 8 mic pre's let you stream in all of them simultainiously. It saves everything on a SD card so its easy to recall anything you have saved. The best part is that you can do 8 differnt takes on each track and then select the best for your final mix. This is built to be easy to operate and super clean sounding. Can't beat it for the money.
