Product Description

The TASCAM DP-32 Port studio is the best and most affordable way to remove the mind-numbing glow of the computer screen from personal recording. It’s safe to say, that after decades of manufacturing and transforming Port studios, TASCAM has revolutionized the series once again. Employing 8 combo 1/4-Inch XLR inputs with +48V Phantom Power, 32 tracks (8 mono, 12 stereo) the ability to select between stereo and mono and an affluence of other key features, TASCAM’s DP-32 is the obvious choice for multi-channel home recording.

Great machine with nice quality playback sound.

If you are new to home studio recorders, the quality of sound will knock your socks off, particularly if you prudently invest in a good set of monitors.
If you intend to use it merely for recording, and not for mixing or mastering, you'll probably like it just fine.

Overall I am very pleased with the DP-32 but I will point out some of its shortcomings as well. I had been using a Korg 16 channel digital recorder for several years and it finally died. My workflow is to use the digital recorded to record all my tracks and then use Sonar DAW to mix and master.

The Good:
8 simultaneous inputs is wonderful. This adds so much flexibility and it's a breath of fresh air. Phantom power is controlled by banks of 4 inputs instead of individually but that works fine for me - especially since I use mic pre-amps ahead of the DP-32.
You can easily transfer audio files from the DP-32 to your PC. You can just eject the SD card and insert it in a card reader and directly copy files. Another great thing is that the files are native wav files and need no converting! Finally! It is also very easy to plug the unit directly into a USB port and transfer files that way.
The workflow is very easy and intuitive. There are buttons that save a lot of time like the "Assign" button and "Virtual Track" button which take you directly to tasks that are used frequently. Buttons with each input also make this a breeze. For instance, to assign input H to track 8 you simply push the "Assign Button" and then push the "Select" button on input H (while track 8 is active). All of the tasks are much quicker and easier than my old Korg unit.
I record and edit in 24 bit mode and then master down to 16 bit for producing CDs. This unit will record in either mode.
It has a special input for plugging a guitar directly into the unit.
The display is high resolution and easy to read. It is laid out well and very intuitive.

The Not-so Good:
The trims for each input do not trim down to zero.

I must start out by saying that the Tascam DP 32 is an amazing value in multi-track recording that can easily allow one to record 16 stereo track (32 tracks) recordings. Using the bounce capabilities it allows one to record a theoretically unlimited number of tracks so long as you bounce your 16 stereo track recordings down to 2 track stereo and use the freed up tracks to add another 14 stereo tracks of stereo each time one performs the bounce process. This process can be repeated many times to produce recordings that may be built up from hundreds of tracks. I do not know if there is a limit to how many bounce record processes one can perform on the DP 32. Since I write and record mostly orchestral type music that is often longer in length (similar in content and length to a 3-5 movement symphony), the bounce/record process is something I have used for many years on my Korg D1600 and XD3200 recorders that I had to replace because of eventual wear and tear from years of use.

While I have found that the Korg 16 and 32 track recorders were more somewhat more sophisticated in capability than the DP 32, even though their technology was many years older, the Tascam DP 32 performs the vast majority of functions that the Korg recorders performed, sometimes using a simpler but less flexible process than Korg. A big difference is the replacement of the large hard disk with SD Card memory which is much more convenient than switching out hard drives when they approached capacity. I did notice a time lag of several seconds from when recording stopped to the time the machine was finished writing to the SD card that was not present when using my Korg hard disk recorders. However, I regard this as a very small sacrifice for the additional convenience and rapidly decreasing costs of flash memory.

The Tascam DP-32 is a very well made product that sounds great and is easy to use. I noticed right away that the mixer audio AND recorded audio have a nice quality and warmth to them, unlike many of the other units out there of this type, both past and present. I purchased this unit for laying down ideas and making good quality quick demos for other musicians I work with. I wanted something simple and easy that didn't require a computer with a separate audio interface, etc, etc. I wanted something stand-alone and something that was not going to crash or glitch on me after hauling it across the universe. Hence, the Tascam DP-32!

I currently take this unit on tour and use it on the bus, in the hotel, in the RV, at other musicians homes... pretty much wherever. It's a "pack and go" device that is not susceptible to bumps or software issues. It produces high quality recordings, and with good musicianship along with a talent for tracking and mixing, the recordings can pass as very, very professional.

The Good:
1)Solid. Both as a recorder as well as the manufacturing quality.
2)Ease of use.
3)Great sound.
4)SD card recording, USB and CD make this unit versatile.
5)Compact. Very important when traveling or if you have limited space.
6)Awesome value for the money spent!
7)It's an All-In-One device, ready to go as soon as it's power is on.
8)A nice Mastering mode for those final adjustments to your overall mix before sending it to CD, SD or computer.

The Bad:
1)The effects are very limited. Although they are of good quality and sound great, you won't be doing multiple effects in your mix-down, so the trick is to record your parts with effects already on them.
