Item Description:
Along with their inventory of smaller portable recording studios, Tascam maintains a line of more elaborate, detailed and capable all-in-one console recorders. The Tascam DP-24SD is a stand-alone tabletop recording studio that records 24 tracks at once.

The DP-24SD Digital Portastudio is a 24-track workstation, allowing eight tracks of simltaneous recording. The built-in mixer includes everything you need for a professional-sounding mix, from EQ and reverb to amp simulation and multi-band mastering effects. The Digital Portastudio series creates finished productions without the need for a computer, instead using a simple-to-use control surface to keep you creative.

For clear display of your mix, the DP-24SD has a large color LCD displaying tracks, meters, and effects parameters. A set of 12 encoders control EQ, effects sends, and panning. Built-in effects include compression, guitar amp modeling, delay, reverb, with a total of 10 effects processirs available during mixing.

Eight XLR mic/line inputs each provide phantom power for condenser microphones, switchable in banks of four. One input includes an instrument-level impedence switch for direct input recording of guitar or bass. Balanced monitor outputs and effects sends are also provided on the rear panel. A USB output allows tracks and mixes recorded to your SD card to be transferred to a computer for CD burning or sharing online.

For a complete music production on a desktop, there's no simpler choice than the DP-24SD.

19 faders eliminates layer structuring
Even with the DP-24SD's number of tracks and features, there's no easier multi-track recorder to use. Nineteen track faders and one master fader allows instant access to any track without selecting pages or banks of faders.

A 3.5" full-color LCD and self-illuminated buttons for increased visibility
Both models have a 3.5" LCD screen and select, self-illuminated buttons - making it easy to view your entire creative process. Some of the illuminated buttons include (SOURCE, SELECT, REC, MUTE).

12 rotary knobs are linked to the LCD for easy operation
 The DP-24SD have similarly employed rotary knobs to control dynamics such as EQ, effect send and other related features.

Solid-state SD/SDHC media ensures confident recording, free from shock and vibration
 The DP-24SD employ SD/SDHC media. SD/SDHC cards provide secure shock resistance due to the absence of any moving parts. File format of the DP-24SD is FAT 16 or 32. The Portastudio recorded files can be accessed on your computer when connected via USB.

8 XLR/TRS inputs, 8 channel recording, 24 track playback
Both units have 8 XLR-TRS combo inputs. You can record up to eight sources at one time.

INPUT A-H and each track are equipped with 3-band EQ
 The equalizer for each track and each input are independent from other effects. Record like any professional studio with EQ for each individual track.

8 dynamics effects, guitar effects and mix-down effects
Use up to 8 dynamics effects at once, one for each input source. For example, utilize the built-in compressor effect for your bass, guitar and drum tracks. A multieffects processor includes guitar amp modeling, chorus, flange, delay and other effects.

When the mutlieffects processor is used, only four dynamics effects are available. The stereo reverb on send/return 1 is always available. 
Mastering effects provided without the need for other devices
 Create a master track without using a computer with the TASCAM mastering effects.
In the mastering effect section you will find a 3-band equalizer, a 3-band multiband compressor and 3 normalize effects for setting peak amplitude - take your stereo master file to the next level of quality.
