Tascam 2488 Neo Training DVD Review

Tascam 2488 Neo Training DVD

Mastering Effects is a big addition to the popular 2488 series and this DVD covers them all.

A training tutorial DVD aimed at helping musicians understand their Tascam 2488 Neo has been released by ProAudioDVDs.com, the market leader in video training materials for musicians and studio owners.

This DVD tutorial is not only a review of all the functions and features of the Tascam 2488 Neo, it's also like an updated visual version of the owner's manual instructed by veteran trainer David Wills.

"I wanted to explain all of the cool things that the Tascam 2488 Neo can do, but also get into a bunch of features that I don't think that user manual explains fully enough." said David Wills, owner or ProAudioDVDs.com.

"The Tascam 2488 Neo has so many useful features that most users are only using a fraction of what it can do. In this 2488 Neo training tutorial DVD we go through everything."

"My goal is to make it like you have one on one time on all the features of the Tascam 2488 Neo and to immediately get you up to speed on the entire product. Why review the whole written user manual when you can get quick up-close visual training on specific subjects?"

With the addition of the new Mastering Effects, the Neo version of the popular 2488 recorder is more of an all in one unit.

David Wills has produced over 50 DVDs in the nearly 20 years since he launched ProAudioDVDs.com. As an Audio Engineer and Consultant for artists such as Michael Jackson, Phil Collins, Earth, Wind & Fire and Diana Ross, David brings real world experience from the pro world but in any easy going conversational style of presentation.
