A while ago I jumped ship for the Zoom R-24 and I reasonably sang its praises... well... that love fest is over.

There were a lot of problems with it. Inaccurate metering, faulty inputs, extremely noisy pots... the things that I liked about it were outweighed by the fact that I never got a satisfactory recording. I always had to take it to Audacity and fix a ton of things in post production on the computer.

The Tascam DP-24 has resolved all of that. It is truly rivals my love the the AW16G!

What do I like about it? It records to SD. USB connectivity. You can assign the faders to subgroups! The list goes on.

The following track is my 1st recording on it using the Fishman TriplePlay. Everything was done on the guitar except the drum track.

4:49PM Friday

I've been taking lot of classes from TrueFire.com that has really helped me compositionally. (Now if I could just work on my rhythm...)

Hey Acoustic. I'm almost sorry to hear that. I did not do much direct recording on the zoom R24 and i admit that you don't have much control over the volume of tracks as the metering is pretty weak. As an audio interface it seems to work rather well though. Witness my last recording. The final mastering level was too low but once you know how to adjust inputs it gets a lot better. I also need to watch the output volume when i mixdoN in cubase. I found the recording tracks to be very clear. I'll test the 96 kHz later and expect it to be even better.

No worries... I like to do all my recording "on the box" and not involve the computer.

I almost like this as much as my 16G, so it all worked out in the end!

I've been reading up and following threads on the DP-24 and I have thought about getting one. I got a 2488 Neo instead, because the DP-24 doesn't have scenes and you cannot apply compression to recorded tracks. I have gleaned this from the manual and from forums. Is this true or have I got it all wring? I really like the idea of SD cards instead of a HD. I really like the look of the screen on the DP-24, but it seems to be a step backward from the Neo given the scenes and compression thing.

Hey... sorry for the delay in responding. You're right, compression is only offered on the input tracks, you can't bounce using compression. I suppose you could side chain it by sending the output to the effects loop send, then routing that back into the inputs and applying compression there. I don't think that would be a problem, although I've never tried it.

As far as scenes go, you're right, the DP-24 does not offer scenes. Of course, the only time I've ever used them was when I wanted a smooth fade out of a song. I would set 2 different volumes and a transition time for the scene change, and even then I did it on a digital mixer and not a recorder.

Overall, I'm still pretty pleased with it. There are some things that are easier to do than on the 16G, but I do miss it.
