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.
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.
THE DVD IS A FAIRLY COMPREHENSIVE ( COMPLETE ) OVERVIEW OF THE DP 24 CAPABILITIES. IT ALSO OFFERS RECORDING TIPS. AFTER WACTHING THE VIDEO ONLY THEN COULD I WRAP MY HEAD AROUND HOW I EVERYTHING WORK AND HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF THE RECORDER. A GREAT FOUNDATION TO BUILD ON....A MAJOR HELP AND TIME SAVING!!!!!
If you're planning on purchasing a Tascam DP-24 or DP-32 I would highly recommend purchasing this DVD prior to purchasing the unit itself. Very informative and laid out in plain vanilla. You can thank me later.
What's to say so far I love what it is teaching me, it5 has been a big help, I only wish there was more, and more detail.
