What can the DP-006 do?

No need to wait for charging or find a mains socket when the batteries run out - you can just replace then with new ones. Record at the press of a button, use the jog wheel to find your place on a track and even repeat sections of tracks. Hit all the right notes with the built-in chromatic tuner and metronome.

What can I record with the DP-006?
Record with the two built-in omni-directional condenser microphones and listen using standard 3.5mm stereo headphones (not included), or record straight from your guitar, external microphone or any other line-level device likes synthesizers with a XLR or ¼ inch (6.35mm) jack output. The DR-006 can record up to six tracks at once, and you can listen to the playback on all six as well. Customise the built-in microphone with three levels – high, medium and low. With two XLR inputs, two ¼ inch (6.35mm) jack inputs and twin phono and 3.5mm headphone jack, you can record and listen your way.

How can I transfer the files to my computer?
