DP-008EX

Easy overdub recording and DAW transfer through a built-in, high sound quality microphone

Music sketchpad that can record anywhere - a must-have for any songwriter

 

The DIGITAL POCKETSTUDIO DP-006 and DP-008EX are battery-operable multi-track recorders.

Easy to carry around, they are perfect as a song-writer’s external-use music sketchpad.

A user interface that enables intuitive operation similar to cassette MTR

 

Easy to operate, just like a cassette MRT, with recording preparation achievable in just two steps after turning the device on. A high-quality microphone is already built-in, so there is no need for an external mic. Each track has a designated knob so that users can intuitively operate each track without having to rely on the screen. SD/SDHC cards are used for recording media, allowing data to be transferred to the computer via USB.

Choose DP-008EX for more sophisticated music production

 

If you wish to obtain a higher-quality music sketchpad, the DP-008EX comes recommended. In addition to the XLR inputs that enable condenser microphones to be plugged in, the DP-008EX comes equipped with an input equalizer and reverb, enabling simple sound production. The mastering function can increase sound bass. With these functions in place, you can wow your band members with high-quality demo files from the DP-008EX.

A multi-recorder that anyone can use to easily record song ideas

 

Adding the DP-006 and DP-008EX into your production system will increase the scope of your music production infinitely. The music sketchpad that can easily accumulate ideas will capture that melody as it pops into your head, with a high audio quality, further enhancing your music production.
