    Glad I got one of the first versions THAT HAD MIDI.....It's a little long in the tooth now, but, it does EVERYTHING I need.

    I have PRO TOOLS & STUDIO ONE< but never have recorded a single song on them, as I can never get it up and running LOL...

    I record on the TASCAM DP24 & I mix on PRO TOOLS for automation

    Speaking as someone who started on standalone recorders - first the Roland line then the Yamaha line - if you can master those and make good recordings with them - then you can master computer based recording. I did several projects on my Yamaha AW4416 - widely considered one of the best of all time and there is really no comparison to the quality ceiling you can achieve with computer based recording. Donít get me wrong - they are great and I still have 2 of the 4416ís but they are limited. IMHO.

    Obviously there's almost no limit to what you can do with a computer, so in the more-of-everything sense a computer setup is superior. OTOH sometimes less is more and some people actually prefer having limits. I for one often find working with and around limitations typically far more inspiring than an "anything is possible" scenario.

    This.^^^

    And, as has been pointed out ad nauseum in the stand alone vs computer DAW discussions.... *cost*. The raw cost of:

    a stable, capable, dedicated computer
    DAW software
    interface/preamp
    plugins
    etc

    ...vs. $499.00 for a new DP-24SD which has preamps, editing capability, multi-effects, and mastering software all built in. Definitely more limiting - but waaaay cheaper and just generally great bang for the buck.
