The Tascam DP-004 / DP-008 DVD Tutorial is designed to be more than just a complete guide to using the DP-004 and DP-008: it teaches basic recording techniques to musicians getting their first start in recording.
It begins with a section called "Recording School" that teaches beginners the basics about microphones, multitrack recording and mixing. It goes on for the next 40 minutes to cover every aspect of recording, editing and mixing on the DP-004 and DP-008 Digital Pocketstudios.
If you've invested in Tascam's new DP-004 or DP-008 Pocketstudio, this DVD goes into great detail helping you get the most out of your recordings, as well as creative ways to use your DP-004 with your PC or Mac.

If you are struggling to decide if you should get the DP-004 or DP-008: stop struggling and get the DP-008. It has more features (cool ones) and will make your recording life easier since having more tracks is better.
Cons: This DVD could be improved by expanding the DP-008 section, which is too brief. Hence 4 stars instead of 5.
Note: If you are not a beginner: just read the manual that comes with the DP-008 -- you will not need this DVD. The manual is actually quite well done.
It begins from the premise that the listener/watcher does not know how to use the device and may not even know the terms such as "bounce, track, pan..." and so on, but would like to multi track at home. It is an A- Z instructional DVD that goes deep into the science of recording, while not leaving behind those who are new to digital and multi-track recording.
The subject's speaking voice is clear and pleasing, and the camera work is perfect; going and out, with clear close ups, and simple step by step explanation of how the unit works.
Skillful use of a recorder does not necessarily mean that one can skillfully teach how to use it. It is similar to playing an instrument: many may be professional musicians, but unless they are gifted instructors, the student will not benefit to the degree which he might have with a gifted teacher.
Here, we have a gifted teacher, who has a strong sense of what areas may need some repetition or detailed explanation.
Since the DP 004 and 008, the instruction remains similar, though the DVD does go into specific 008 instruction.
Excellent for establishing a base knowledge of home recording that is skillfully produced, building in complexity slowly. ***** Star teaching tool.
