TASCAM’s DP-008 is an 8-track Digital Portastudio small enough to fit into a guitar case.

Based on the best-selling DP-004, the DP-008 adds four more tracks for a total of eight tracks with built-in mixing. The DP-008 has dedicated knobs for volume and pan for each track, plus a reverb send knob for the built-in reverb effect. The DP-008 has two XLR microphone inputs with phantom power, a guitar level input and even built-in stereo mics so you’re ready to record anything. Tracks are mixed down to a dedicated stereo track and EQ is available on each track, but the Portastudio interface keeps it simple to use.
The new TASCAM DP-008 records to SD Card media, and a 2GB card is included with the unit.
