The DIGITAL POCKETSTUDIO DP-008EX is a battery-operable multi-track recorder. Easy to carry around, it is perfect as a song-writer’s external-use music sketchpad that can record anywhere - a must-have for any songwriter



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.

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.
