The TASCAM DP-03SD Digital Portastudio is a songwriter's dream that records eight tracks to solid-state drive, with up to two track simultaneous recording via XLR, 1/4" combo jacks, or the two internal condenser microphones. Input processing EQ and limiting to ensure you're capturing your best sonics. The color display and channel strip knobs make mixing fast and creative, and the included 4GB SD card can be replaced with up to 32GB SDHC media or swapped with other cards between projects for up to 50 hours of music.

Record multiple parts or in stereo with two track simultaneous recording

The DP-03SD has two XLR-TRS combo inputs that can withstand multi-microphone recording with drums.

In addition, the DP-24SD comes with built-in guitar tuner and metronome, allowing users to complete recording preparations with this device alone.

The most intuitive recording workstation ever lets you focus on capturing your best performance.

You don't need a PhD in studio recording to sound like a pro with the TASCAM DP-03SD Portastudio. We put everything you need at your fingertips so you can see and control everything that's happening.

Full-color LCD screens and self-illuminated buttons visually communicate the recording process, and everything from level setting, compression, and limiting happens with sturdy sliders, buttons, and knobs.

The TASCAM DP-03SD's intuitive design allows you to quickly dive deeper into any setting without distracting you from your creative session

Built-in Microphones and Versatile Inputs for Multi-track Recording

A pair of stereo condenser microphones is built into the front panel of the DP-03 for capturing rehearsals, live performance, or songwriting ideas without needing to set up an external microphone. Also included are a pair of high-quality XLR microphone preamps with phantom power for condenser microphones, 1/4" line inputs, and an instrument-level switch allows you to record a guitar or bass without a direct box.

Professional-Grade Recording Technologies

Routing the inputs to one of the eight tracks is simple, and you can record two at a time. A tuner and metronome are built-in for tight-sounding tracks, each with its own dedicated button for quick access. Track can be edited with commands like copy/paste, silence, clone track and undo. Bouncing is also available, even bouncing all eight tracks down to one or two. There's even the option to import a WAV file through USB.

Each track has its own send to a stereo reverb processor as well as two-band shelving EQ. Once you've perfected your mix with the 45mm faders, pan knobs, reverb and EQ, record it to the dedicated stereo master track. Your mix can be processed with mastering effects like EQ and limiting for a tight, modern sound. When you’re satisfied, transfer your mix to a computer over USB 2.0.
