Tascam DP 24 Multitrack training

This is a great course to get started quickly on the DP 24. David teaches in a way that makes sense to someone who wants to get down to business right away. He has a logical approach to teaching, and I was able to track right along with him. Excellent course!

A Life and Time Saver!

The Dp 24/32 is a fantastic machine but can be tricky at first and the manual can be a real challenge. David breaks down the practical concerns and details and shows you how to use it and all that it can do. He also provides useful tips that come from a long career of recording. And he's a fabulous teacher--clear, concise, enthusiastic and sincere. I actually worked with people who knew the machine, and watched other tutorials. They left me frustrated in that they taught me stuff that didn't speak to my interests and didn't have David's enthusiasm, so I just didn't get a sense of how much fun this machine is. By the end of this fast-moving class I felt confident and fluent and immediately purchased his Home Recording Course!

Simple and essential to begin with DP-24 SD

Really good informations for beginner. More details than the owner's manual.

Take time to see video and write some notes of tips… and ready to record and mix a song.

Thanks David, good job.


This video is very well done and complete as nessecary. I am a full time musician who uses the DP-24 to record my live performances and import them into my computer and recording software, (Steinberg in my case) This video had me running the machine like a pro in no time. If I would have ventured off on my own with nothing but the manual, much time would have been wasted, besides, it's always better to watch a presentation than read yet another tech manual. I have thanked myself over and over for buying this and now even laugh at the fact that I thought I might not need it. Also, it's nice to know that it's on the shelf if I am entering new territory and need to refer to it. Even gives a little beginners class but gets into all of the more complex issues later on. Even though the Dp-24 is a dream machine as far as portastudios go and is far less complicated to operate compared to earlier generations (not to mention a DAW) I still consider this video a must have for any owner of a Dp-24 regardless of their technical ability.

Can't do without it

I've never used any kind of audio recorder. So before I bought the unit itself, I bought this DVD tutourial. It was the best thing because after looking at the manual i know I would have had problems figuring it out. This DVD is comprehensive and step by step. There are also some helpful mixing and microphone tips that aren't found in the manual. The DVD is about an hour and a half long and I probably watched it about 8 times and learned something new every time. It doesn't ever get boring. So when I finally for the dp 24 I felt pretty comfortable with it. Do yourself a favor and get this DVD BEFORE you buy the unit.
