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.

The iPad does work with a few class-compliant audio interfaces through the Apple Camera Connection Kit. (No TASCAM interfaces work this way.) Since Apple doesn't officially support this feature, we can't officially support it either. However, some testers have gotten it to work.
No you can't. If you need to save the performance of a lifetime, record a mix with only that track playing and the rest of the tracks levels all the way down.
It's the tiny hole located next to the headphone jack. You can use the microphone while you have headphones plugged in, as long as they don't have a headset microphone (three-connector headphone plug).
We don't have any plans for those at this time.
This is a security setting on the iPad. It means that some application is running that has access to the built-in microphone. You can ignore this.
