Wherever you are and whatever the project at hand, be ready the moment inspiration strikes with the DP-008EX from Tascam. This professional-grade, 8-track Pocketstudio is the digital evolution of a music sketch pad and includes a high-quality microphone, XLR inputs for connecting condenser mics, an input equalizer and reverb for onboard sound production, a mastering function to increase sound base, and much more—all the bells and whistles you need to deliver a professional polish to your audio recordings in the studio or out in the field.

The DP-008EX is designed to be easy to use, so you can focus on your work without getting distracted by technical difficulties. Its operation is intuitive, mimicking a cassette MRT’s functionality. Just turn on the device and start recording in two simple steps.

The DP-008EX features a 128x64 dot-matrix LCD with built-in backlight so you can easily keep visual tabs on your task even in darker recording environments. Meanwhile, each track is assigned a designated knob, so you can seamlessly switch tracks without having to look at the display. Enjoy extreme audio flexibility with Track Edit functions, back up or restore songs, and even use the Bounce Function to record more than 6 tracks.

Increase the scope of your project by adding the DP-008EX to your production toolkit. Delivering CD-quality recording (44.1kHz/16-bit), the DP-008EX includes a 4GB SD card, which allows your recorded data to be transferred to a computer via its high-speed USB2.0 connection. Record up to 32GB to SD/SDHC.

Keep recording with confidence. The DP-008EX runs on 4 AA batteries for up to 6.5 hours. Change to AC power using a PS-P520 AC adapter (all optional Tascam components sold separately).
