Full description

The DP-004 Recording Package includes a TASCAM DP-004 Pocketstudio Portable 4-Track Digital Multitrack Recorder, Alesis, M1Active 320 USB Studio Monitor Pair, Shure PG48-QTR Microphone, MS-220 Tripod Mic Stand with fixed boom, and two 10 foot instrument cables. - DP-004 Pocketstudio Portable 4-Track Digital Multitrack Recorder The TASCAM DP-004 Pocketstudio is a 4-track digital multitrack recorder based on 25 years of easy-to-use cassette Portastudios. The DP-004 Pocketstudio has been updated with 4 tracks of CD-quality digital recording. Like the classic Portastudios, a row of knobs sets levels and pan instead of a list of menus. The DP-004 can record 2 microphones at once to layer and mix tracks on the included 1GB SD Card. A built-in stereo condenser microphone makes it simple to use the TASCAM DP-004 to record anywhere you go. Or you can plug your microphones into the rear-panel inputs. Once you set levels and pan, record your mix to the dedicated stereo master track and transfer to a computer over USB 2. Despite its go-anywhere compact design, the TASCAM DP-004 Pocketstudio is simple enough for students, songwriters and anyone who wants to keep their recording process simple and creative. - Alesis M1Active 320 USB Studio Monitor Pair Alesis M1Active 320 powered monitors make a lot of sense on your studio desktop and for field recording and other traveling audio engineers. The Alesis monitors connect via USB to your laptop or computer for plug-and-play listening. These compact speakers are equipped with I/O for connecting a keyboard, mic preamp, guitar effects, mixer, and other audio components for easy computer recording. - M1Active 320 monitors deliver 16-bit/44.1-48k - Hz audio quality through a USB 1.1 port-without the need for special drivers. A Bass Boost switch increases the low-end for monitoring in big spaces. Besides the USB cable, the I/O includes quality 1/4" plugs and standard RCA jacks, a TRS headphone output, two unbalanced 1/4" phone jacks inputs, a stereo 1/8" mini-jack input, and stereo RCA inputs. Another nice benefit is that each speaker is magnetically shielded, so you won't have to worry about placing them near TVs or computers. - Shure PG48-QTR Microphone The Shure PG48-QTR Vocal Microphone comes complete with a 15', 1/4" phone cable and clip for plug and play convenience. The dynamic cartridge offers rugged, reliable performance and its cardioid pattern rejects noise and minimizes feedback. Built-in pop filter and on-off switch. Includes clip, mic pouch, and educational guide. - MS-220 Tripod Mic Stand The MS-220 Tripod Microphone Stand has a thread adapter and tubular legs. Adjustable height from floor to top thread is 35" to 61-7/8". 30-1/4" boom is not adjustable.
