  1. 5/5

    I decided to upgrade to a Tascam 2488 Neo and ordered this dvd before I received the product. When I opened the box and set it up I was up and running with minimal effort thanks to previewing this DVD first! I thought Dave was so good I bought his Ultimate Home Recording DVD set as well. Absolutely Better than the rest!

  2. 4/5

    The manual on this recorder is very heavy and somewhat hard to understand if you’re a first time recording artist. When I recieved your DVD on the Tutorial, it was very easy to follow and it took me less the 2 hours to do the things I wanted to do, compared to 1 month trying to understand the manual. This is great job on this DVD Tutorial. I will definitely use your services on other equipment.

  3. 5/5

    This was the best money I have spent in a long time! My husband is dyslexic and was having problems when he needed to quickly check something in the manual so I thought I would order this for him. We didn’t know just how good it was going to be! It’s clear and doesn’t assume that you know all the ‘techi’ terms …it really makes you feel much more confident. Now he is well on the way to producing an album of excellent quality thanks to this DVD.
