When you want a reliable piece of home-recording hardware, turn to the Tascam DP-32 Portastudio -- an all-in-one portable recorder packed with hands-on controls, effects processing, and eight individual input channels for tracking the entire band. A one-stop solution for multichannel recording, the digital DP-32 offers 8 combination XLR-1/4" inputs with +48V phantom power, 32 tracks (8 mono, 12 stereo) for flexible playback, the ability to select between stereo and mono, and much more in a compact, rugged design.

All You Need In One Box

Think of the Tascam DP-32 as the hardware version of your digital audio workstation (DAW). Do all your recording, mixing, editing, mastering, and more on the DP-32, without having to check in with a computer. The DP-32 conveniently records to SD cards, providing the stability, reliability, and portability you need to capture audio on the go. Meanwhile, its USB port allows you to load up backing tracks or other sounds from your computer if you need them, as well as bounce tracks to your computer for storage or for extra tweaking in a DAW.

Powerful Signal Processors and Handy Built-Ins

The DP-32 supplies all of the necessary tools for processing your tracks across 32 channels. Built-in amp models, EQ, delays, compressors, and dozens of other effects are available, allowing you to get just the sound you want. What's more, this Portastudio also gives you the option to record up to 12 stereo tracks for keyboards, MIDI instruments, or bouncing down drum tracks or other large files. Take advantage of the unit's master effects before finalizing your recording and burning it to CD with the built-in CD-RW drive.

What's on the Back

The rear panel sports the eight combination XLR-1/4" mic inputs, as well as MIDI I/O for use with your controller and drum machines, monitor out, effect sends, RCA stereo out, an SD slot for reliable file storage, and a USB port for connection to a computer. SD Cards keep the device much more portable, offer a quieter working environment and are much more stable than hard drives. The USB is available for bouncing tracks to your computer for storage or further mixing if desired. Employ the USB port for loading up other sounds like backing tracks or drum loops as well.

Intuitive Layout for Near-Instant Recording

The DP-32's no-nonsense layout, high-res color LCD screen, easy-to-use built-in software, and dedicated controls will have you making music in no time -- perhaps without even reading the manual! The DP-32's master channel-strip section is intuitive to use, providing hands-on controls for your channel EQ, pan, and send settings. With Tascam's DP-32 recording system, you have all the recording features you could want in a portable, budget-friendly unit.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Out Of The Box - Inuitive and Turn Key"
Overall: I chose the Tascam DP-32 over a PC based recording suit for several reasons:1. Noise.2. Reliability (I can't tell you how many projects I've lost on PC).3. Ease of configuration.4. Number of inputs.5. Quality of hardware.6. I work with computers for a living, and I don't equate creativity with them.7. I've always preferred hardware over software recording.I have to say, this was totally worth the wait. These Tascam DP models are built like a tank. Upon plugging it in, I was at first a bit confused as to how the effects and EQs worked but after looking it up in the manual, it became instantly clear just how nearly every aspect of the DP-32 works. The design and functionality is seamless and intuitive once you get passed the initial newbie jitters.There are only two things that I can see room for improvement:1. It only comes with a 2 gig SD card (seriously, seems a bit cheap of them).2. A VGA output would be nice, so you could use an external display. I gave five stars for everything except Manufacturer Support... because I haven't needed any :)
