The best we have used.
CoorEast 08.03.2017
We have tried a few recording devices but this is definitely the best so far (BR1600CD, US1800). In fact, we will be sticking with this one as it offers all we need; multiple-simultaneous inputs for transferring to a computer and simple mixing facilities for rough mixing on the desk.

It has more features than we need but some of the controls have left us searching through the manual as they are not overly intuitive - adding compression on a particular input channel for example - but these would probably be easily remembered if we used it more often. The large-ish display is a nice touch and the menus are simple enough to navigate. The displays show all you need.

The tracks are easily moved to a computer, but can be brought back once mixed for the mastering features which, we think, are better than in our software.

It is robust enough but we did get a decent Thomann case for it - just in case.

Using SD-cards is handy too as these are very inexpensive and a new one can be used for each song. As we used inexpensive SD cards recording at 32-bit we didn't have any of the reported issues associated with the higher sampling rate using cheap SD cards.

Value for money is outstanding. We paid more than this for our first BR-532 (which we still use).


A fine way of working
Dan_Studioman 20.08.2017
After having worked with DAW-software for a long time now, I thought it was about time to add this machine to my setup. I like the way it looks, I like the functions and I like the way it sounds. It is easy to use, just allow yourself the patience to work your way through the manual and you'll be fine. Working with a DAW has its pros and cons, the cons for me being spending way too much time editing, tweaking and what not, which was sometimes almost sucking the human feel right out of things. The Tascam is a great recording device to indeed have that 'live feel' to your recording sessions. For me, it brought about fresher ways of approaching the arrangement of a song. Great value for the money, so go for it!


Great standalone alternative to DAW
svenakos 06.03.2021
Build quality

Robustly built, very clearly laid out.
As far as build is concerned, the only thing I'm not crazy about is the power adapter which seems a bit flimsy (the plug is replaceable and not very sturdy).


Workflow is as I expected having, in ancient times, worked with a Yamaha MT4X portastudio, and a great relief compared to the inspiration-killing sadness that is a mouse and keyboard and having to wrestle with drivers, windows updates and popups. Do read the well written user manual before use though - this machine does have relatively many options and you shouldn't expect to be able to work with it without any reading.


The 24 bit DACs should provide enough headroom to avoid ugly digital clipping with a clear margin.
Compared to my Focusrite Sapphire 2i2, the input sensitivity on the Hi-Z (guitar) input is actually sensible, meaning a P-90 singlecoil cannot overload the preamp with the input gain turned all the way down.
The built-in guitar amp simulator sounds weedy and is only good for hearing something resembling an electric guitar while recording a DI signal. I wouldn't use it for any serious recording, ever.

In summary, a good sounding, well built machine which, after just a bit of time studying how it works, is great fun to use and does not get in your way.


Very Good Overall
YoBake 17.09.2021
I am very happy with this machine - it is quite simple to use - once over the features and I am rolling with recording. The sound quality is excellent, everything else works like it is supposed to - it's not complex at all - so, it's exactly what I was looking for. Having a tuner built in is very convenient.

The only point that I would recommend Tascam look at is putting in midi control - I come from having used a Roland VS1620 years ago and if I had to redo the drum track (drum machine), I could just sync it up and redo them. I never got more midi sophisticated than that, but it was very helpful. Overall, this is a good recording studio at a very good price.
