TASCAM's first iOS app based on 30 years of PORTASTUDIO recording
Posted on Tuesday, December 21, 2010

Montebello, CA – (December, 2010): TASCAM has introduced its PORTASTUDIOapplication for the Apple iPad™, bringing 30 years of easy-to-use home recording to the popular device. PORTASTUDIO is based on – and nearly the same dimensions as – the TASCAM Porta One four-track cassette recorder that revolutionized recording in 1984. The PORTASTUDIO app records four tracks, one at a time, with VU meters and a cassette transport contributing a vintage vibe. When a production is complete, the app can mix your recording to a stereo track that appears in iTunes.

A four-position selector switch assigns which track PORTASTUDIO records to, and input trim and limiting are applied to the input before recording. Audio can be recorded form the iPad's built-in microphone or a microphone plugged into the headset jack. The iPad will record from the built-in microphone if standard headphones are plugged into the jack. Pan, level, high and low EQ are available for mixing, and mixes are saved as CD-quality WAV files inside iTunes. 

PORTASTUDIO by TASCAM is available now on the iTunes App Store for $9.99.
