New digital Portastudios from Tascam

Tascam has introduced two new digital Portastudios. The DP-02 and the DP-02 CF are available immediately. The new Portastudios have been updated with a fresh new look, new effects, a new display and killer price point just in time for holiday shopping.

“The DP-01 series was a huge success for TASCAM because musicians could record digitally as easily as they did with their first TASCAM cassette 4-tracks,” said Paul Jenkins, National Sales Manager for TASCAM. “The DP-02 refreshes this product with a bold, sleek look and improved LCD display to make songwriting easier than ever with CD-quality results.”

The DP-02CF includes a 1GB card as an introductory offer, for plenty of recording time without purchasing additional memory, The DP-02 records to a 40GB hard drive instead of compact flash, and includes a multieffect processor, stereo reverb and CD burner for CD masters and song backup. Both units feature a Portastudio-style interface so that musicians can mix with knobs instead of digging through menus.
