Record to SD or Through USB on Tascam's Versatile Portastudio

When you want a reliable piece of home-recording hardware, turn to the Tascam DP-32SD 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-32SD 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-32SD as the hardware version of your digital audio workstation (DAW). Do all your recording, mixing, editing, mastering, and more on the DP-32SD, without having to check in with a computer. The DP-32SD 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-32SD 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 transferring it to your computer.

What's on the Back

The rear panel sports eight combination XLR-1/4" mic inputs, 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-32SD'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-32SD'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-32SD recording system, you have all the recording features you could want in a portable, budget-friendly unit.

Customer Reviews
3 out of 5 (12 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A World of Capabilities."
Overall: I'm just getting started with this unit, and have no experience with other equipment to compare this with, but so far I am very favorably impressed. It's very easy to use and understand if you have any technical background at all, even a little bit. The directions seem clear, and do not assume you know anything already, as far as I can see. Descriptions of functions and the "how to's" are clear and make sense as you follow the steps to familiarize yourself. Recording and playback is easy. I would suggest getting the compatable SD card list from the Tascam website for the unit, then purchase the cards you want that will have enough space them for your projects. I bought two 32GB sanDisk Ultra Plus SDHC UHS-1 cards at Staples. They are already formatted, but ran one through the formatting process on the DP-32 just to get familiar. I'm very impressed with the sound quality and capabilities of this unit. Overall, I'm very pleased, and if I had a need, I would purchase this unit, or similar, again. I did not intend to buy this big a unit, but zZounds had a " blemished" one for a ridiculous price! I have yet to find the "blemish," and everything works as advertised.
Style of Music: Blues, Jazz, Christian, Classic Rock. Mostly as a hobbiest now; not in a band for years, but throw a pick-up band together now a
