This recorder is a great inexpensive digital 6 track recorder. It is not filled with a lot of bells and whistles like effects and mastering software but for this price you would be crazy to think it would. It is easy to operate and the results are as good as your input. If you put in a poor signal, you'll get a poor recording. Someone wrote a review saying the manual is too difficult to understand. I don't think it is but on the other hand I have been using Tascam recorders since the mid 70's so I understand their method. If you take some time to go step by step as written, you get excellent results. If you record you can easily bounce the tracks internally to open more than 6 tracks and export to any recording software in your computer, add effects and EQ and do a for final mix by importing through the decks USB connection. A ton of possiblities in a very small portable package. I carry mine along to gigs and hook it up to my mixer to record the band. I take it home, move the SD card to my computer, bring up Audacity or Sony Sound Forge and make an edited audio CD of the performance. So easy to do.

DON'T BUY IT Tascam should be ashamed.

By Eric

Comments about Tascam DP-006 Digital 6-Track Pocketstudio:

By far, this is the most worthless piece of junk I have ever bought. Don't buy it. I bought it so I could record on the go and make demos when I'm on vacation. I needed a vacation after trying to figure out this lousy item. Tascam should be ashamed. I wanted something for easy use. This was like trying to program a drum machine. It has a lame scroll wheel, which I hate. The LCD lights are almost invisible and too small. I returned it after days. My advice, buy a USB mic and use Garage Band on your laptop or Ipad or phone. If I have persuaded somebody from buying a dumb gremlin box, then I can be at peace. Please don't buy it and please Tascam discontinue making this audio lemon. If I had a choice, it would have gotton zero starts or negative stars.

A Solid Workhorse!

By anthony geffert jr _

from Houston, TX

Comments about Tascam DP-006 Digital 6-Track Pocketstudio:

I've had this little beast for almost 2 years now and have recorded dozens of riffs, songs, and live practices. I am very impressed at the quality the DP-006 puts out! The controls were not hard at all to learn. I can set this thing up in seconds, set all the inputs and levels, and shred away. When I used it to record live drums with the built-in mics, I could get surprising quality without using a pre-amp! I've used Tascam in the past and had to have one, and this little guy is no exception. Sure, there are a couple features I might've liked to see extra on it, but you can haul it around with no computer and get great results. There's also a decent amount of editing available on it.

Tascam DP006

By Jamie Seiple

from Knoxville TN

Comments about Tascam DP-006 Digital 6-Track Pocketstudio:

It's only a hundred bucks so I don't expect much...Records with great quality and makes nice little demo's. Instruction manual is very difficult. I had to learn on my own. A bunch of useless clutter and tiny print that's hard to see. A larger print quick guide would have been much better. But again it does record well once you can figure out the navigation procedures. $30.00 more for the AC adapter.

Cons

  • Learning Curve
  • Not Fully Equipped

Best Uses

  • Amateur Recording
  • Home Studio
  • Performances
  • Simple Demos

Comments about Tascam DP-006 Digital 6-Track Pocketstudio:

Once you learn how to use it, it's fabulous but it takes a lot of time and practice. The manual is definitely necessary. It's not as easy as the old fashioned 4 Track tape machines. But once you get going you will be capable of making outstanding sounding, guitar/piano/voice recordings.
It's easy to download it to the computer once you are done.
Considering it's mostly used as a home recorder an electric plug should be included with the machine, instead of needing to purchase one.

    I do genealogical interviews and appreciate the ability to record on the go with anything from the pretty good built in mics to my big honking Shure mics. I wish the menu screen was a bit bigger. However, it dows what I ask of it. Recommended.
