8-track digital portastudio

The DP-008 is an 8-track digital portastudio small enough to fit into a guitar case. Based on the DP-004, the DP-008 adds four more tracks with built-in mixing. It has dedicated knobs for volume and pan for each track, plus a reverb send knob for the built-in reverb effect. It has two XLR microphone inputs with phantom power, a guitar level input and even built-in stereo mics so you're ready to record anything. Tracks are mixed down to a dedicated stereo track and EQ is available on each track, but the portastudio interface keeps it simple to use. The DP-008 records to SD card media, and a 2GB card is included with the unit.
