From the Manufacturer

 

TASCAM's DP-006 Pocket Studio

TASCAM has been revolutionizing PORTASTUDIOs since they invented them decades ago. TASCAM’s PORTASTUDIOs have remained the ideal scratch pads and easy-to-use home recording devices. Utilized by seminal artists and home for legendary albums throughout the years, TASCAM has stayed true to manufacturing rugged, compact, feature-rich song-writing and demo tools. One of TASCAM's latest, the DP-006 is the most compact multi-track recorder on the market, so compact that it can now be referred to as a Pocket Studio.

Take it with you anywhere to record and demo CD-quality audio up to 2-tracks at a time on the fly. TASCAM built in convenient front-loaded condenser mics for quick on-the-spot recording when inspiration surprises you. The mics have been modeled after TASCAM's top-selling DR series used by professional field recordists across the globe. So, you can be assured you're receiving top-of-the-line quality. On the rear of the unit you will find 2 inputs to plug in instruments and/or dynamic mics directly and on the bottom a socket for easy stand mounting.

Design, Portability and Ease

TASCAM has maintained status as the preferred line of multi-track recorders and a lot of that success is due to the usability. For years TASCAM has been tweaking and perfecting the user-interface on their portastudios and recorders to ensure that it's the easiest to use in the market. These devices are not menu-intensive and designed to function like analog multi-track recorders with the main controls all kept on the outside of the unit for direct access. For those of you that are already familiar with other TASCAM recorders, you'll know how to use the product right out of the box. For you brand new users, it's easy to learn and you'll be recording confidently within minutes.

The DP-006 is highly portable, operate off of 4 AA batteries (included) or an external power supply. To increase reliability, product longevity and portability TASCAM chose SD cards (2 GB SD card included) as the media of choice. For stress-free transfer of songs and tracks, USB connection is built-in.

 

The DP-006 is an ideal scratch-pad for the traveling musician, songwriter or beginner musician. Equipped with a metronome, tuner, 1/4" inputs, built-in mics, and easy-to-use controls, the DP-006 will adapt to your demo-recording needs!

This six track Portastudio is a flexible and capable unit for basic recording and mixing. Although it lacks the XLR inputs of some of the more advanced units from TASCAM, it has a pair of 1/4 inch inputs that can be assigned to various tracks. The impedance of the inputs is selectable via a switch on the side of the unit, so you can hook a guitar and/or microphone right into it. It also has a pair of decent internal microphones that, similarly, can be assigned to different tracks and which have selectable gain (low, mid, high) so you can contend with various source material. It includes a modest SD card on which the raw data is recorded and which allows for mixing/bouncing/mastering of tracks. You can add a larger SD card for mroe room to maneuver on bigger (or more numerous) projects.

The interface is pretty simple, with buttons that open basic selections (e.g., input mode) and a menu button and rotary selection wheel for many of the functions. It isn't that difficult to navigate. The level and pan controls for the tracks are easy to grip and feel solid, not chintzy. In all, build quality is quite solid. This thing seems like it'll hold up well as a portable unit.

The instruction manual is located in a file directory on the unit itself and explains the basics of recording and mastering as executed on this device.

You can record up to two tracks at a time. Although there are only six tracks, you can easily bounce tracks (i.e., combine two separate tracks into one). Because the unit is digital, you don't add tape hiss by repeatedly bouncing or mixing tracks. This is not the four-track cassette studio of my youth.

I used this unit to record my friends' band at a gig last weekend.

UPDATE - a user commented that I was incorrect on point #2 below (see comments section). I am not changing my rating as I think the user interface could be better (much better), but the unit's overall quality and functionality may fit the bill just fine for many users.

..........................................................

As a point of reference, I used this device in comparison to my current portable recorder, the Boss Micro BR, which I bought used in 2004. My primary use for the device is to record my band's practices, and occasionally my friends' live shows. After playing with the Tascam DP-006, a few glaring issues stood out immediately:
1. LCD Screen - first, the screen is seemingly the same black and white, 16-bit looking screen I had on my 2nd generation iPod in 1998. The lack of a backlight almost immediately killed any usefulness for me in less than bright situations. It's my understanding that the DP-008 model has a backlit screen, so that may be an option if you intend to ever use this in a dark environment.
2. Exporting to master inside the unit to get to a usable .wav - this requirement is another dealbreaker for me. In my current unit, I can stop a recording, pop out the card, export from Boss' proprietary format on my Macbook, and quickly convert that to a .wav for editing and uploading to dropbox. With this unit, you have to create a master and export to .wav within the device itself, something that in my experience takes exponentially longer (and drains the units batteries - no AC adapter is shipped with the item) than doing the heavy transcoding on a computer.
3. The menu navigation is typically labyrinthine for this older generation of recorders (including Boss' products).

This little unit is a blast. When I say little, I mean it literally -- it's only about 4 by 6 inches, and a little over an inch tall.

It's a terrific musical sketchpad, great for practicing or quick recordings of your latest song idea. Thanks to the quick start section in the included instruction manual, I recorded a song within ten minutes of unboxing it.

It has six tracks, but just four channels -- two of the channels are stereo, two are monaural. Theoretically, since it has bounce-to-track capability, you can record unlimited tracks.

What I like most is that it isn't technically overwhelming like some standalone recorders. It has a good balance of capability and simplicity. You can do some on-board editing, and you can even "master" by mixing down your tracks. But it doesn't have audio processing or effects like reverb -- which, in such a small unit, probably wouldn't be satisfactory anyway. If you want to do that kind of thing, it's best to load your tracks into a digital audio workstation on your computer and take it from there.

It does not have XLR inputs. It has two 1/4-inch jack inputs, and they are versatile. One can be switched from mic/line to guitar. The impedance of both inputs can be set to low, medium, or high. You can plug a guitar directly in, or use a powered or unpowered mic of high or low impedance.

However, it comes with built-in mics, and they do a very nice job. That makes this an extremely portable unit -- practically self-contained.

It comes with batteries, a USB cord (for connecting to your computer and transferring tracks), and an SD card already installed.

If I had one small suggestion for improvement, it would be that TASCAM would include a set of ear buds. A set of ear buds would make it a totally complete and ready-to-use system right out of the box.
