6th February 2013 - Watford - TASCAM - the leading professional and home recording manufacturer - announces the launch of two new POCKETSTUDIOS - the DP-006 and DP-008EX.  Staying true to its heritage of manufacturing rugged, compact, feature-rich song-writing and demo tools, the six-channel DP-006 (UK SRP - £169.99 inc. VAT) and eight-channel DP-008EX (UK SRP - £259.99 inc. VAT) will be available in the UK during March 2013.

The DP-006 is one of the most compact solid-state multi-track recorders on the market. It offers six recording tracks (two mono and two stereo/mono), selectable track modes, built-in high-quality stereo condenser microphones and two mic/line inputs. Two audio tracks can be recorded at the same time. You can bounce and edit your tracks and there are also features like a dedicated stereo mixdown track, repeat playback, auto punch, chromatic tuner and metronome. This recorder will easily fit into any gig bag, pocket or suitcase.

The DP-008EX is an eight-track POCKETSTUDIO with built-in input and master effects. It is equipped with two XLR mic inputs with +48V phantom power and built-in high-quality stereo condenser microphones. Each channel is conveniently loaded with real volume, pan and reverb send knobs and there are parametric EQ per track, dynamic effects on both inputs, a built-in reverb processor as well as automatic and manual mastering tools to polish your stereo mixes. With auto punch, bounce and editing features, the DP-008EX is the ideal take-anywhere solid-state recorder.

Both units come with a 2-GB SD card for reliable recording and USB port for easy file transfer. To keep operation simple, these POCKETSTUDIOS are equipped with the same user interface Tascam have been perfecting for years.
