EDITING ON THE DP-004
I was amazed at the simplicity of this video tutorial. Going through the manual was an absolute night mare. With it's small print and layout. I strongly recommend this tutorial. Wouldn't it be nice if this DVD tutorial came with the package? I could access the tutorials anytime on line. What a Godsend!
The machine is straight forward, but this really helps lower the frustration level right out of the box. I'm so glad I invested the money.
I recently purchased this DVD to help navigate me through the process of operating my new TASCAM DP-008 Portable Digital Recording Studio. This is a great buy. The dvd takes you step-by-step in the operation of both the DP-008 and DP-004 Portable Studios! Easy set up and operation. A must by for proper set up and operation to strat producing great music!
I recently purchased the Tascam DP-03 and immediately got the Pro Audio tutorial DVD for it. It is an excellent piece of recording gear but I found I needed something a little smaller as well for ease of carrying. I purchased the DP-008ex. As always I also immediately ordered the Pro Audio DVD for this unit.While the Tascam units may be similar in some ways there are definite nuances between them and David Wills offers another excellent tutorial to explain the in and outs of the Tascam DP-008.Thanks David for another informative and well made DVD!
I, personally, did not want to spend weeks, or months, as I did with reel-to-reels to learn how to operate this digital piece of gear. I was amazed at the complexity of such a small recorder. After watching the DVD I was recording several songs! As with playing a musical instrument you have to "practice, practice, practice" to become proficient, but at least now I can be recording rather than just learning the DP-008 one step at a time. This DVD was one of the BEST investments I've ever made for my musical endeavors. David Wills has a great teaching manor that's easy to digest and understand. I am extremely glad I got his instructional DVD!
