      Once you get the "how to" on this product, it's a breeze recording what ever you want to record. Great for small projects, but I think once you get good at using this recorder it has the potential to make great sounding, quality CD.

      Comments about TASCAM DP-006 Digital 6-Track Pocketstudio:

      To begin with, I am new to recording, but not new to playing at all. I've been playing for about 10, or so, years, and, after fiddling with a bunch of microphones in a sad attempt to record music, I decided to buy this.
      This little thing seems like a toy, but it puts out a powerful sound. I, being a noob at recording and all, found it a bit hard to get it to function the way I wanted it to, but Youtube has helped with that.
      The sound this little thing produces can be so versitile. The settings allow you to be able to play quietly or over load the thing to get a choppier track. Its compact design is great if you want to move for better acoustics, ect. Heck, I even recorded a man-made dam by my house to add to my song.
      The TASCAM DP-006 is great for a beginner. Personally, I cannot go into many logistical statements about how "this" is better than "that." But it produces a great sound, no matter if you want a clean or distorted sound.

      Comments about TASCAM DP-006 Digital 6-Track Pocketstudio:

      Purchased the DP-006 as SDOD special and am amazed with the sound quality and compactness for the price. There is no LCD back light on this recorder but the LCD is fairly easy to read under a reasonably good external light source. The menu structure is fairly intuitive. I had a little difficulty exporting a file to a wav format because the option is not allowable in the master recording menu where it would seem logical to implement an export option. However, the overall structure of the menus are easier to decipher than some other multi-track digitals I have used in the past.

      I was surprised with the quality of the built in microphones. The built-ins offer three level controls and pick up well with the instruments I have used (acoustic guitar, banjo, harmonica, button accordion). I've also experimented with the line in controls using electric guitar, analog and digital synthesizers and a mixer - so far so good. The recorder seems to process levels very well and I have had less problems with going under or over sound levels than on other portable machines.

      Overall, this recorder is a pleasure to use. Even though it does not have built in effects, the overall sound quality sounds superior to the other recorders I've used (Zoom PS-04, Fostex 8 track). I am not a professional sound person and don't have a lot of interest in tweaking microphones and levels to get the perfect recording. I just want something that sounds clean, will allow for some separation when I desire it and won't sound too condensed or clipped in the final result. This recorder seems to fit the bill for someone new to multi tracking or someone who wants a quick way to get musical ideas down before finalizing them on a more professional platform.

      Another feature I like with the recorder is that it takes SD cards and can handle 16 gig cards without a problem ( read Tascam's list on approved cards before you buy extra media). My other recorders take media that is hard to find and very restricted in size. The tascam allows me to pop in an SD card available almost anywhere and record without having to worry about taking a bunch of extra memory cards or running out of recording time. The recorder's method of formatting is a little strange but useful- it formats some of the card for proprietary use and then formats a separate partition that your computer can access. I didn't like this feature at first but it seems to work very well. When you export something to a wav file it is placed on the partition your computer can retrieve. This multiple formatting feature prevents having to access a bunch of folders or strange files when it is time to transfer the file to a computer.

      So far, I'm very pleased with what Tascam has done with this recorder. If I decide to go with something larger in the future I will definitely check out their product line based on my brief time with the 006.

      Comments about TASCAM DP-006 Digital 6-Track Pocketstudio:

      The software or screen reminded me of the early computer years. Once you learn how to use it you can record your ideas. You can listen to what you played while on another track adding bass over rhythm guitar. Then add drums still yet on another track all the while listening to what you have laid down already. Then add some vocals over it all. If you have an idea you can plop it down for later.

        Comments about TASCAM DP-006 Digital 6-Track Pocketstudio:

        This little unit is very well built. The controls are easy to use and somewhat intuitive. It comes with a pretty comprehensive manual also which you will need to refer to from time to time until you are familiar with the unit. 16 bit resolution gives you CD quality sound so it could be used to make broadcast quality song demos. While it only allows recording on 2 channels at a time 6 channels gives you plenty of tracks to develop an idea. Plus the ability to mix down and bounce the mix to a single channel makes this a very powerful recorder for its size. It uses a memory card, which is pretty nice, because you can remove it and store your original tracks in their raw data format for later development. It's also small enough to fit in a gig bag and some guitar cases, so you can take it to gigs. Every songwriter should have one of these.

          my first multi-track recorder,could probably use the 8 track model but the SDOD on Christmas Day made this a no brainer. be sure to get the adapter as batteries don't last long.

          It's very easy to use and has very good sound quality for an inexpensive device. I purchased it through the "stupid deal of the day" ad and I'm lovin' it! It's very portable. I've been using it to capture tracks, then exporting the tracks to a PC for editing and mixing. So far, no complaints.

            It gives the ability to record one "part" at a time. So one player can play more than one part. It's well built. The manual explains how the features work, well.
