OVERVIEW

Great sound and simplified operation!

The TASCAM DP-01FX/CD 8-Track Hard Disk Recorder features the one-knob-per-function design that has made TASCAM cassette Portastudios the choice of thousands of musicians. It shatters the confusing page-shift-menu interface found in most other digital recorders. The DP-01FX digital recorder has 2 - 1/4" TRS mic/line inputs, 2 phantom-powered XLR microphone inputs for connecting condenser mics, plus a guitar-level input. Its 8 tracks record at uncompressed CD quality to an internal 40GB hard drive, and a stereo master track is available for recording a mix. Each channel has a 45mm volume fader, plus dedicated controls for pan, effects send, high EQ, and low EQ. An LCD display shows meters, audio editing settings, and locate points. It has a USB 2.0 jack for file backup and transferring mixes to a computer. There are analog RCA line outputs, a headphone out and S/PDIF line output. The DP-01FX also has a multi-effects processor for adding effects to an instrument during recording and a reverb processor for adding effects during a mix.

The onboard CD burner makes backups and mastering a snap.

It is actually easier than the analog models to use. If you have any experience recording, you can literally unpack it and crank out songs! It is far more value than any software and is "idiot-proof"! Beginners will have an easy time. The preset guitar settings would be nice as a processor floor unit; the tube settings sound better than Line 6 to my ears.

I guess this machine would be user-friendly, as advertised, if the input jacks and buss switches weren't so cheap. Interupted signal paths can be very frustrating, even if you're just a singer/songwriter.I bought mine last summer. Six weeks later the hard-drive blew up. It took weeks to get it fixed and I had to pay cross-country shipping. Now I'm dealing with cheap switches and jacks which will mostly stop functioning altogether after the warranty expires. Wish I had my $ back.

Great Machine

By anthony3690

from Austin, TX

See all my reviews

I purchased this a few days ago and I already have many quality songs on a cd. The price may be a little steep, but in my opinion it's well worth it. Very easy to use (I'm very stupid when it comes to technology). I tried out Cakewalk and Lambda, both are too confusing, both are products not worth the time of a busy musician. Keep it simple and go with this. You wont be sorry.

Still thinking about this one? Just buy it.

By bleeding_fingers

from Denver, CO

I had a bunch of little concerns about this recorder before it arrived, but about halfway through reading the manual I was completely stoked. You can put your songs in any order you want before burning them to disk, even choosing the length of pause between songs! I don't know why this excites me so much, but it really does. The sound quality is great. Its EASY to learn. I had it for about four hours before I had a great sounding song on CD. There are things I would change in the mix, but really good for my first try! I would recommend a condenser mic and preamp . I went direct with the mic using the built-in phantom power to test it out, but the preamp just made a world of difference. Maybe you'll need a few accessories on top of just the unit alone (good headphones and/or monitors) but that's the way it goes for us musicians, right?

Tascam Hit A Grand Slam Home Run With Me!

By NOYB(None of Your Business)

from I Live In A Van Down By The River

See all my reviews

For me, this recorder will work out for a very long time to come. I am a destined to stay solo 12 string guitar player and vocalist and this recorder works out just fine for me. 8 tracks is plenty for what I do. I almost sprung for their model with 24 tracks, but what on God's green earth would I as a soloist do with 24 tracks? Just be more confusion for me is all I can see. The manual that came with this recorder was simple enough for me to understand and within a couple of days was laying down tracks. I did however buy the two DVD tutorials that Tascam has on Portastudio recording which I might add have been very useful for me as well. The onboard CD burner is awesome too and I have to say that the recordings sound like I went to some major recording studio. I am impressed. Big bang for the buck is all I can say here. This is a digital machine that thinks it's a analog machine. So all you recording geeks out there who still prefer the sound of analog over digital then this is the machine for you. I really cannot add much more here other than the fact I am a happy camperwith this machine and cannot really say anything negative about it and the things that are negative are not really worth mentioning here. If you are destined to stay a solo artist I highly recommend this unit. I rest my case.

Very user friendly..nice features

By Brian-2A1VB

from Madison Heights, MI

I've had my DP01fx/cd for about three weeks now and it's great. It has plenty of features and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to operate. I'm in the finishing stages of a song and I burned a rough copy to CD and the quality is better than expected. I've used the old 644 4 track studio years ago and thought that was really good for it's time. In my opinion, Tascam is the only way to go for recording gear.

What You Need To Know

By If it's not Iommi..It should be

from Canyon Country, CA

This product has two flaws..but they are minor.1. There is no backlight for the menu, so you must have a booklight or a small nightlight if you are in low light.2. The effects are great but... If you use any of them in your recording the volume is cut about a third! Ouch!Here is the good news.. If you don't use the effects and use your're own (I go through an Artist 2101, the recording is fantastic! Also I called the Tascam tech support & was only on hold for three minutes YEAH. He told me, bypass the effects. He was right! All in all I love the machine. It is really user friendly & you can record something burn a CD in five minutes.

Great value and quality

By sonny-lUCET

from Kansas City, MO

I've had my Tascam 8-track for almost a year now. I love it. It is one of the best investments I've ever made as a songwriter. I had an older 4-track cassette recorder before and that made it very easy to just start recording immediately. It has helped me improve in every aspect of performing my own songs in order to get them out there, or ready for some Nashville pros to get the idea of what I want from them. Having a knob to turn instead of a menu to dig through is so nice! I have not had any trouble with mine so far. Hopefully, I am not jinxing myself by saying that. I am always recommending the Tascam. I don't think you'd be sorry if you invest in this machine.

WOW!

By Bat-mite

from Columbia, MD

See all my reviews

I bought a Fostex MR-8, and was quickly disgusted with its lack of features. It calls itself an 8-track, but it is far from it. Ping-Ponging, mastering, and having a playable end product were very limited.But then I bought the DP-01FX/CD, and what a difference! With its full-function ping-pong and separate mastering ability, you really get unlimited tracks! And then you can create an audio CD and play it in your CD player, car, or office. Step up and buy the DP-01. You will not regret the extra money once you see what it can do.The only thing that would make it better is more inputs. If you want to mix drums with five or six mics, you'll need a second mixer with stereo outs. Other than that, you can do it all with the DP-01FX/CD.
