  • Tascam DR-40

    Tascam DR-40 - "Use an external USB battery"


    The DR-40 is a standard recorder in the videography world. Especially for DSLR cameras and camcorders without XLR mic inputs. It is simple and easy to use. With a 16 Gb memory card it will record days of audio. I am not sure about the noise flo…

    Tascam DR-40 - "Not bad, but not much better than a phone"


    The thing I like the least is the 1) sound quality, 2) the WAV file format (bulky) and 3) unreliabilty (broke down twice in 6 months). Please see details below. 1) Sound Quality Having used condenser mics with excellent results I was expecting …

    Tascam DR-40 - "Best Recorder In It's Price Range"


    I want to start off by saying this is a very good recorder. Tascam truly delivered with this unit and I'm surprised other companies don't follow in their footsteps. What I liked Least: I hate the floor noise, the preamps are a lot noisier than …

    Tascam DP-004 - "No AC adapter included"


    The Tascam DP-004 has 2 ¼ microphone inputs and records in WAV format. You can record up to 2 tracks simultaneously but playback 4 at the same time. There are no effects on this console, it would have been nice to at least have some studio reverb of …

    Tascam DP-004 - "Tascam DP-004 Pocket Studio does the job"


    So if you are looking to lay down the tracks to your new EP, this isn't the one for you. If you are looking to lay down tracks for some rough ideas and put some basic tracks together, this can be a very nice tool to begin to chart out song ideas or …

    Tascam DR-100MKII - "Audio complement to a 5D."


    I use this recorder mainly as an audio recorder together with a Canon 5D camera. The mic inputs are used by HF mic receivers. Transferring the audio to the video editing software is done seamlessly. A downside is that it discharges quickly, but f…

    Tascam DR-03 - "Excellent Recorder"


    I've had this recorder for 2 weeks (took me a while find time to play with it) I didn't bother reading the manual a friend was nice enough to show me how to operate it. The recording I did was an outside recording. The birds were chirping,people were…
