While Zoom might be the industry standard for digital recording, this pair of digital recorders from Tascam offers everything they do and more. Check out the limited time savings on these great recorders:
For a limited time, you can save $25 on the Tascam DR-40 4-Track Handheld Digital Audio Recorder provides professional-level features and flexibility in a compact and durable design that’s ideal for use in the field. The unit can record high-quality WAV/BWF or MP3 files to readily-available SD or SDHC flash memory cards, allowing you to record hours of material and share it easily. The recorder features built-in adjustable condenser microphones, allowing you to choose an X/Y or A/B recording pattern to meet the needs of your environment and application. A built-in limiter and switchable low cut filter reduce peaks and rumble for cleaner recordings. There are a pair of Neutrik combo inputs that accept XLR and 1/4″ connections.
A built-in speaker allows you to play back your recordings immediately for review. Other features include a dual recording mode, and overdub mode, and a peak reduction feature. There is a 2-second pre-recording buffer to ensure that you never miss a priceless moment due to pressing the record button too late. There is also a chromatic tuner and a stereo reverb effect. A threaded mounting hole lets you mount the recorder on a tripod for terrific stability. The DR-40 can operate for up to 15 hours from 3 standard AA batteries. It can also use USB bus power via the included cable. An optional AC adapter and external battery pack (sold separately) provide additional powering options.
For a limited time, you can save $20 on the Tascam DR-05 Portable Handheld Digital Audio Recorder. Tascam DR-05 is a great tool for capturing ambient sound. It puts premium recording quality in the palm of your hand with up to 96kHz/24-bit Broadcast WAV film recording provides better than CD quality to capture every detail. Record WAV or MP3 files to the included 2GB microSD Card, or expand with your own microSD & SDHC media.
The DR-05’s high quality omnidirectional microphones will pick up even the most ambient sounds from the source whether you’re close or far away. Microphone design and placement have been well though-out, making sure to highly reduce handling noise and maintain the highest quality of sound as the prime focus of the unit. Omni patterns are much less prone to picking up wind noises than cardioid patterns, ensuring the DR-05 as the ideal candidate for outdoor and vocal sound gathering. The microphones can withstand sounds up to 125dB SPL for those loud practices or live shows and yet still have the sensitivity for a docile, quiet setting. The DR-05 has over 92dB signal to noise ratio, under 0.05% total harmonic distortion and 20Hz to 40kHz response (-1/+3dB) at 96kHz/24-bit resolution for simple, clean sound quality.
