This is the third Tascam recorded I have used, and the second one I’ve owned. There was minimal learning curve since it is laid out pretty much the same as the older ones. My last digital portastudio finally starting showing it’s age, the play button takes a lot of tlc to work properly, so I bought...

Very easy to use, intuitive, clear and simple to use at home for mutitracking one person singing, playing guitar, bass and keyboards. I’m just about to sell my KORG D3200 as it’s quite trickY to use (though you can record on many tracks at one time which is not useful for a solo musician!).

- I bought the Tascam DP 03sd coz I am fond of singing. After browsing through many products available on the market, including the interfaces available like Focusrite Scarlet and similar ones, I decided to go with this. - Having manual controls feels good.

This unit replaced my 12 year old Tascam DP O1-FX. DPO3SD MUCH more user friendly. Cuircuts updated...Reverb engine is superb. I purchased a Lauten LA 320 microphone and combined it covers all my recording PERFECTLY. I highly recommend both these items. Call Randy Poteete X1780. He's got 'em!

I needed to be able to record at home and rehurse and this 8 track does it all for me. user friendly, i have had it for over a month and it does a great job. I'm a older guy and don't normaly like figuring things out, but the manual covers everything pretty well. No complants.

Just getting started with my new purchase. The Tascam recorder as well as its manual is straightforward and fairly easy to use. Takes a little getting used to. The sound and quality is excellent. My only complaint is the small screen. Wish it were just a bit bigger.

He assuages your fears of your newfangled new device purchase and then goes through the functioning of the unit to show you there's nothing to fear!I started looking at this the other day but still need to digest most of the video...but, so far, so good.
