TASCAM's Portastudio brings 30 years of easy-to-use home recording to your iPad. Based on the PORTA ONE recorder that revolutionized recording in 1984, the Portastudio app records up to four tracks with a vintage vibe.

Record one track at a time using the built-in mic or a headset microphone connection, monitoring on authentic VU meters. A cassette transport with position counter tracks your position while you mix with level, pan and EQ controls. When you're ready to mix, the built-in mixdown function saves your song as a CD-quality WAV file. Your mix appears in iTunes when you're finished, ready to share with friends and bandmates.

A generation of your favorite bands crafted their songs with Portastudios, now it's your turn. Start capturing your songs with the company that invented home recording using Portastudio by TASCAM.

Not a bad start but...
Not clear how/ if you can bounce tracks over to track 4,
Good job mimicking the real thing, I must say.
Also RELLY need ability to import .aiff or .mp3 into tracks!

Old School Portastudio!

Just like the original, so easy to use. Just arm your track, set your level and record. I’ve been using the built-in iPad mic with an acoustic guitar and it sounds great, although I’m looking forward to using a better quality mic set up. Follow the manual on the Tascam web site to retrieve your mixdowns; you simply export them out from iTunes. I thought I had lost several mixes that I didn’t think were saved, but when I plugged in, everything I had recorded showed up in iTunes. $10 for an old school 4-track on your iPad!

Manual and Mixdown

@Mattrixxxx, the manual is in the "Applications" tab on the Tascam website, click the support link on top. When you connect the iPad to iTunes, look in Applications and your mixdown will be there so you can put it on your hard drive or whatever.
