Tascam DR-40 V2 4 Track Audio Recorder

The Tascam DR-40 V2 4 Track Audio Recorder packs four-track recording, adjustable condenser microphones, XLR mic inputs and extended battery life into a portable recorder you can take anywhere. It captures up to four tracks from built-in microphones, external mics or line level sources. The high-quality internal microphones are adjustable from XY to AB position, helping you to tailor your recording to the sound source.

A pair of great-sounding Tascam microphone preamps welcome condenser microphones with phantom power, recording at up to 96kHz/24-bit resolution. It accommodates balanced XLR or 6.3-mm line inputs using locking Neutrik combo jacks. The DR-40 accepts SD or SDHC cards up to 32GB, and a 2GB card is included. Once recorded, you can play back your takes with EQ and the optional Level Align feature to increase the perceived overall sound pressure.

A stereo reverb effect is also built-in, as well as a loudspeaker and a chromatic tuner. Recordings can be transferred to computer using a USB 2.0 connection. Other features include overdub mode, playback at variable speed, limiter and low-cut filter, and much more. With a simple-to-use interface, the DR-40 is perfect for home or live recording.

The DR-40 can be operated by an optional footswitch (RC-3F) or an optional wired remote control (RC-10). A battery pack (BP-6AA) is also available as an option. It takes six AA batteries and increases the operation time from 17.5 to over 50 hours without the need for an AC adapter or a computer. The battery pack is designed to attach itself to the DR-40 and a tripod and will be available in October 2011.
