      Tascam DP-32 Digital 32-Track Portastudio Blemished - Like New (H95794)

32-Track digital PORTASTUDIO with full-color LCD.

The TASCAM DIGITAL PORTASTUDIO DP-32 is one of the best and most affordable ways to remove the mind-numbing glow of the computer screen from personal recording. It's safe to say, that after decades of manufacturing and transforming Portastudios, TASCAM has revolutionized the series once again. Employing 8 combo 1/4" - XLR inputs with +48V Phantom Power, 32 tracks (8 mono, 12 stereo) the ability to select between stereo and mono and an affluence of other key features, TASCAM DIGITAL PORTASTUDIO DP-32 is an obvious choice for multi-channel home recording.

The last 12 faders are selectable between MONO and STEREO
The DP-32 has 12 selectable tracks between MONO or STEREO. These tracks provide more flexibility. For example, set to STEREO for recording synthesizer, or set to MONO when recording guitar or vocal. Not only that, you can create ideal settings for each track. (set #9 to #12 STEREO, then set #13 to #22 MONO) If all tracks are set to MONO the DP-32 becomes a 20-track multi track recorder.

21 faders eliminates layer structuring
The DP-32, even with the high number of tracks and features is one of the easiest multi-track recorders in the market to use. The DP-32 has 20 track-faders and one master fader. You can control any track with ease.

The 3.5" full-color LCD and the self-illuminated buttons increase visibility
The DP-32 has 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 linked to the LCD to help increase easy operation
The DP-32 has employed rotary knobs to control qualities such as EQ, Effect Send and other related features.

Utilizing SD/SDHC media ensures confident recording, free from shock due to loud sounds
The DP-32 adopted use of SD/SDHC media. SD/SDHC cards provide secure shock resistance due to the absence of any rotary mechanism. File format of the DP-32 is FAT 16 or 32. You can find the recorded files on your computer when connected via USB.

  • Awesome

    As reviewed by Harry on 6/25/2014

    I was a recording engineer and musician in the 70's. I found this unit to be very easy to learn and the quality is absolutely impressive. I've had the DP32 for four months and have recorded ten demos. They are better than the quality I could get with a 24 track state of the art professional board when I was in the business. Sorry Ampex. In all honesty, this is a twenty track machine as 12 tracks are stereo. Unless you are a drum nut, this is plenty. Using a drum machine I have recorded bass, 7 guitar parts, keyboards, percussion, and vocals with 3 vocal backup tracks and still have plenty of open tracks. I'm loving every minute of this experience.

  • Working on Faith... because customer service needs work.....

    As reviewed by FRANK ANDERSON on 1/5/2014

    First off, let me assure anyone reading this that I don't work for Tascam. And, for what it's worth, the reason for my presumptuousness is because I've been a fan of Tascam for years, and their amateur product lines, specifically, the PortaStudio. For anyone who was a member of a "real" garage band anywhere from 1950-198?, you probably recorded a demo, or two, on a 4-Track Tascam at some point in one of your past lives. And that's if you were lucky enough to have band members who were actually cool enough, and competent enough to understand the benefit of the investment in hardware. Most kids never got to record, and of the ones that did, most had to suffice with a cassette tape, or a reasonable facsimile thereof (..could have been recorded on an 8-track cartride, which was REALLY hard to duplicate...). A For the lucky few, the Tascam was the standard for your first step towards "serious" recording. Even though you didn't have a single clue, the Tascam systems always looked, functioned and lasted a lot like professional equipment. That said, I empathize with those who want the DP-32 to become a DAW-based machine. However, I applaud Tascam for resisting the temptation to "rush" into the control surface market, when the real issue is only multi-track, digital audio. In a strange way, quite a few Pro Tools engineers I know try to somehow pretend that they have no problem being able to record 8 LIVE tracks, simultaneously. This, with a PC they purchased from the yellow sign (Buy Best). I'm sure it's possible, just for the sake of argument. It's also possible I'm raising baby Unicorns. Most posts I have read on the forums needlessly bashing the Tascam DP-24, and Tascam DP-32, either cry about it not being "... like the NEO..", or that it doesn't have SPDIF/Digital Outs. Get over it. If you don't know how to export/import waves from a SDHC drive, into a DAW of your choice, it's probably not due to a limitation of these machines. In almost every way possible, these multi-track PortaStudios completely compliment any with a modern DAW who don't wan't to spend $5000.00 just to record.

  • finally 32 tracks!

    As reviewed by John Poole on 5/15/2014

    I know what it was like to not have the funds starting in the mid 70s for a commercial multi tracker. Starting with a 4 track Teac A2340 in 1975 to an 8 track digital in 2007 I've finally arrived at a digital 32 track. It took me only about one hour to get the hang of the DP32SD So far I've found the captured audio as I hoped it would sound. I have not mastered a project yet but am assuming I can send the mastered tracks via USB to my computer for an upload to YouTube. Clients will have to bring their own CD burner to my studio. I'm through with burning CDs for musical cues for others to work with.
