Hi, I'm brand new on this board and just found it through a Google search. I'm new to home recording, so just dipping my toe in. It looks like I can get a used Tascam Portastudio DP-02 for around $100.00 on CL or eBay. I'm not an electric guitar player -- in fact, I don't even own one -- but I do own nine acoustics, including a Gibson and a Martin, and three mandolins. I've begun writing songs in my head, and I need something to capture the melody, since I don't read or write music. I'm going to start with a cheapie handheld digital recorder in the car, but also want something for the home. I'm a little technically challenged, but a quick learner. Is this little Tascam unit a good approach for me, with budget in mind? Are there any pitfalls or inadequacies to this unit? Is there anything else on the market I might want to look at? I'll mainly just be doing acoustic guitar and vocals, with maybe an overdub of a second guitar or mandolin. Thanks!
