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 :)

Overall: I was looking for a way to use all of my gear while i recording. I have Reasons but I couldn't record my triton board, unless you purchase the sounds cards. I use the mc-307, jv-90, alesis Qs8 and my boss drum machine, and my guitars, so I purchased the Tascam dp-32 and I am really impressed. This unit does so many things, you can master your recordings, bounce tracks, its the only way to use the full 32 tracks but other than that this unit is the truth. Wow , you should hear the effects and compressions, also I have my Behringer x2442 hooked into this for vocals just to see if I could, works like a charm, however, you only can recorder 2 channels, which is fine for right now. This is an awesome recorder and I would definitely buy it again if asked.

Overall: The DP-32 is amazing!!! I was up and recording in no time.Its manual is easy to understand and very user friendly.The best thing about the DP-32 is that your not wasting time trying to fix soft ware glitches and reading thru thick manuals.you can focus on creating and recording.I have never had this much fun recording before.

Overall: Okay, I know how much everyone swears by the Tascan 2488 neo and so do I, but this new Tascam is better in all ways! Get into it and use it! The SD card is awesome and I think every improvement is superior to any other Portastudio on the market. I brought two and wouldn't trade them for anything!
