I've owned this unit for a while. I got it for three hundred and thirty monetary units as one of the 'Stupid Deals'. This is a great unit and with bouncing you have unlimited tracks and a number of studio quality effects. The guitar effects aren't that hot but the vocal and ambient effects, echo, reverb, exciter, etc. do exactly what they're supposed to. I use my analog pedals for my guitar, anyway. I've never had to bounce tracks yet but if you have to you can. It records 8 inputs simultaneously so that's enough to record an entire rhythm section in one take. It's also great for live recording. You can use it in conjunction with your computer DAW for adding effects or final production, etc. as long as you follow the instructions on file transfer. I love this thing and didn't see the need to go to the DP-32 since it has most of the features you use every recording session and plenty of tracks.

As Rocker103 mentioned in his review, there are tons of features missing in this unit. I have been working on the 2488 and 2488neo and I could not go back to something with less features to what I currently have. I will stick around with my old gear.

    Comments about Tascam DP-24SD 24-Track Digital Portastudio:

    Just got this to replace my old Tascam 8-track on 1/4" tape recorder. I just got it so can't say much yet but after the learning curve it should do the trick.

      Comments about Tascam DP-24SD 24-Track Digital Portastudio:

      Found this unit much too complicated for an un-computer-like-oriented person like myself.
      I'm used to tape recordings that are much simpler to use. Too many steps to get a location for recording and playback. Experienced computer people may find it very acceptable with its many features. I think a tutorial CD/DVD would have been helpful. I had high hopes, but I'm not the one to conquer all its highly detailed digital features - regretfully. I still own and use a Tascam 488 8-trk. cassette recorder and love it.
      Fairly easy to figure out.

          When it first came to me I had to send it back because something was rattling inside (broke). They replaced it with a new one and so far I am really loving it. I have not had much time on it yet but so far I think it is a great unit.

              I was excited in purchasing this product even with no on board cd burner. When I received the product and started setting it up I was confused and shocked! What, no midi? MIDI is on the list of this product. I called customer service regarding this and they offered me to return it for another product. They searched their stock for me and they no longer carry multi recorders with midi. Instead of going through the hassle of returning it and not being forced to buy something I don't want. I just gave the unit to a relative and shopped else where. Sorry.

Relatively easy to use with great sound quality & versatility with functions & 8 input lines that can be recorded onto 24 different tracks.... All for an affordable price... I am very satisfied...

                  I have been using home studios for years now, many, many years. I have had tape machines, Boss digital, Zoom digital and now the DP24. The DP24 by far is the most "studio quality" of all, hands down. Aside from the ease of operation and logic friendly design this machine gives you exactly what you put in. The sounds are pure and neutral. The effects included are not as "flashy" as some others but they are pure and controllable. Inputs and routing are simple, eq is very good and every button had a purpose and works as intended. I wish there were a few more bells and whistles but overall I want the recording to be about me and the performance and the song and this device does it very well. And the price is great too. Don't forget the punch in pedal if you run solo!

                    Great recording board with a lot of features. We installed it in a studio and works very well to get a clean recording from the start. The manual is a little difficult to learn from. Hands on while reading the manual is the best way to learn all the functions and operation. only thing I would suggest is to have PFL on each channel for monitoring separate mixes.

                      Got mine 2 weeks ago - I resisted the urge to tear it open and start recording right away, because there are a lot of features and settings you'll want to read up on before you even start. (compression, noise suppression, etc) It was worth it because now the little bit I've recorded so far sounds much better then if I had jumped the gun. Study the manual & with a little patience you'll have some high quality tracks in no time!

                        This is not a toy. This machine is more than I expected. Is built like a tank and it has lots of features. The sound is very clear. Now, because it has so many features it may take a while to learn how to use it, but don't get discourage. I think I made an excellent choice and investment. Tascam is top of the line equipment.
