An 8-track Digital Portastudio with built-in CD burner, 2-band EQ per track, reverb, and more.

The DP-03 Digital Portastudio gives you the freedom to record two tracks at a time at CD quality to affordable SD/SDHC cards using XLR microphone preamps or a pair of built-in condenser microphones. During recording you can manipulate reverb and the 2-band EQ using dedicated knobs for simple operation. When your production is finished, easily transfer it to your computer via a USB 2.0 cord or burned onto a CD using an internal drive.

A pair of inputs can be routed to any tracks, providing condenser microphones with phantom power when required. The DP-03 inputs also include 1/4" line and instrument level switches for recording sources like drum machines, guitar, and bass. A chromatic tuner and metronome are built in for assembling polished performances. Once recorded, tracks can be bounced, autopunched, and edited.

Like the DP-02 before it, the DP-03 uses an array of dedicated controls for mixing, combined with a simple menu interface for editing and other features. New mastering effects like EQ and multiband compression have been added for radio-ready masters. With so much power in a compact package, the DP-03 makes recording affordable, portable, and fun.

TASCAM DP-03 DIGITAL PORTASTUDIO (SD/CD) Features:

  • 8-track Digital Portastudio with CD Burner
    Records to SD/SDHC Card media
    Import audio tracks from CD
    Built-in stereo condenser microphone
    Two XLR microphone inputs with phantom power
    1/4" stereo line inputs

  • A Device With A Lot Of Potential: Tascam DP-03

    As reviewed by David Slatton on 10/29/2012

    The only reason I gave this little gem a 4 star rating is because Tascam also offers 24 and 32 track digitals for home recording so I thought I'd save a star.Someday,hopefully, I'll probably get around to using that last star.And when and if that day ever does come, I'll definitely stick with Tascam. The 24s and 32s are a little higher in the cost department but they have more FX and you don't have to bounce tracks as often. I've had this for around 4 months now and I'm now back to being an inspired 61 year old musician with an enthusiasm level that you usually only find with much younger and hungrier musicians.I am so happy with my Tascam DP-03 that if I wasn't currently disabled, I'd probably attempt to do some somersaults. When I first plugged the DP-03 /CD burner in and listened to the demo that it comes with,I immediately heard the possibilities.This is no toy.This is a very professional sounding device for serious musicians.Maybe you're thinking "At a price that's so low"? Yes, at a price so low.If you have a love of music like I do, when you finally get to the point where you are getting the full potential out of this thing,people that hear your music won't be able to tell the difference if you used a huge studio or the Tascam.It has built-in Mastering tools also.If you don't currently have a very nice mic, well, this comes with two very nice condenser mics that are built in.And you don't have to put you mouth right on the mics.They are that good. I've only had my Tascam for about 4 months so I'm still learning about everything.And the more I learn about it, the happier I am with it.To be honest with you, it only comes with reverb and EQ ( but for each track and they can be tweaked).And with the newer equipment they're coming out with these days, you can bounce all you want with no noticeable loss of sound. I'm 61 years old.I came from a musical background where we enjoyed a lot of experimentation when it came to sound.Late 60s early 70s.And so I also run my sounds, except the acoustic guitar, through a Boss VF-1 effects processor( used price is really good).Remember, if you aren't already aware of this, always turn your gains and volumes down and gradually bring everything up to the proper levels.If not then you can wreak your equipment. It comes with a 2 GB SD-Card so I went to Best Buy and picked up an 8 GB SD-Card for 10 bucks.The Tascam takes you through the easy steps and quickly formats it for you.Amazing.And now the amount of room I get for my songs is a whole lot more.And you can even put a higher GB SD-Card in.The volume levels are so good on the Tascam that you have to turn them down at times, which is a whole lot better than trying to get more volume. You never have to worry about that with the Tascam. My own personal opinion is that this little device is worth way more than what they are asking for it.Thank-you Tascam.It's great to know that there are still companies around that don't overcharge you for great equipment.

  • Reliable and easy...........sounds great!

    As reviewed by shep taylor on 5/6/2011

    I bought the dp-o2 about 3 years ago and have used it non stop. I have took it on the road for recording and it holds up great! Once u read the manual it's very easy to navigate through. It's a real hands on device and produces great sounding recordings. Any body looking for a good start up device to learn to record or have experience in it will love the tascam dp-o2.

  • Not So Great

    As reviewed by Greg Heinrich on 11/10/2013

    I bought this unit after reading all of the other reviews and ended up extremely disappointed. I had to return the first unit because the volume pot and the headphone jack had issues and the sound would cut in and out when I adjusted the output level to the headphones, or if I touched the jack even slightly. The second unit I received on the exchange had the exact same issue but not quite as bad as the first!! So there is obvously a systemic quality issue. And by the way, it was not my headphones - I tried it with three different pairs with same result. And this is a non-returnable item, so I'm just living with it now. Also, I am surprised at the other reviews - I don't find the sound quality to be great like the other reviews raved on. Now I have not used an external mic yet, but using the internal mics, the sound quality is "tape recorder like" in my opinion. I have a Tascam hand held digital recorder (DR-7) that has excellent sound quality. I was expecting similar sound quality with the DP-3, but it's just not close. I would not recommend this product to a friend.
