About this deal

Move to a certain time position, or return to zero or to the last recording position with one key press The allocation of hardware buttons for most common functions is very commendable, and the only ones I really felt were missing were a high/mid/low sensitivity switch for the input levels, and another switch to select between internal and external mics. Built-in stereo condenser microphone: Create stereo recordings from an acoustic instrument or from your environment without any cables Most users are happy with the DP-008EX’s user-friendly interface and great-sounding reverb. The built-in mics are another well-loved feature as they produce high-quality sound that closely resembles external mics.

The DP-008EX can supply phantom power for condenser microphones, even when operated with AA batteries. (Notice: Operating time becomes shorter when used with phantom power supply. We recommend connecting TASCAM's BP-6AA when using phantom power.) Cons: None really, but I personally would like it to be a bit larger in size. Only really because the controls and buttons are quite small. Then again its very transportable.The power supply is sold separately but is worth getting because although the 4 AA batteries make it portable and convenient to use anywhere, they only last about 5 hours of continuous use. I also bought a 32 GB SD card for it which enhances its capacity to hold lots of songs by a long way. The inclusion of a built-in professional stereo condenser makes recording almost effortlessly. The in-built microphone eliminates the need for an endless sea of tangled XLRs and guitar leads. A clean space ensures a clean mind, allowing you to focus on what's most important. Making excellent music. Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the UK, EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided. With that out of the way, the DP-008EX offers a ton of value for the price. You get what you pay for plus so much more.

Pros: Just about everything about it. It's a great way to get ideas down and the sound quality is very good. Another great thing about this device is its ease of use. Its interface is fairly straight-forward and user-friendly. Cons

The sound created by the DP-008EX is excellent for the price. It’s not perfect by any means, but it comes fairly close. The ultra light weight design allows you to carry It with you everywhere in your gig bag. The DP-008EX features ultra lightweight designs to ensure portability. It weighs in at only 360g (without AA batteries). Dynamic effects on both inputs: Apply compressor, exciter and de-esser effects to your input sources

When it comes to portability, the DP-008EX is like no other. Rather than an AC adapter, this device runs mainly on four AA batteries that last approximately six to seven hours; more if the Phantom Power function is turned off.

The reverb processor also has its own button to the left of the screen, and makes use of the four 'F' keys in the same way as the EQ. The options are simply Hall 1, Hall 2, Room, Studio, Plate 1 and Plate 2, with a Time option ranging from 0.2 to 3.2 seconds and a 0-100 level range. Sound & Usability However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers. You should get an instant answer on whether your application has been successful, though in some rare cases Klarna or V12 may need to look at the application in more detail. If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered Reverb effects include: Hall1/2, Room, Studio, Plate1/2. Reverb time and master level can both be adjusted.
