The Tascam DR-60DmkII 4-Channel Portable Recorder for DSLR is the new audio recording solution for on-set filmmakers and videographers using DSLRs.
For years, filmmakers have been trying different methods for recording audio - including the use of bulky recorders designed for music and trying to transform the inferior audio technology built-into DSLRs.
Now TASCAM has designed an answer that pros and amateurs alike have been waiting for. The DR-60D is a brand new 4-track solid-state recorder utilizing TASCAMs decades of experience.
The recorder utilizes high-grade HDDA pre-amps, legendary AD converters, and a durable but lightweight structure and shape.
This device will fit snuggly under any camera or into any rig, and record up to 96kHz/24-bit high quality audio straight to SD/SDHC media.
Filmmakers have at their disposal two 1/4"-XLR Locking Combo MIC/LINE Inputs, 3.5mm Stereo MIC Input, Camera In, Camera Out, Line Out and Headphone Out. Both 1/4"-XLR Combo Inputs supply +48V Phantom Power and the 3.5mm Input supplies Plug-In Power for microphones requiring a bias voltage.
The DR-60D is incredibly easy to use, employing TASCAMs very popular user interface and external controls for every major operation. The body structure, soft-touch keys and dials are designed specifically to help eliminate handling noise.
The multiple record modes include, 4-Channel Record, Auto Record and TASCAMs Dual Record "Safety Track" Mode make the DR-60D one of the most versatile recorders on the market.
Quality mic preamps are a necessity for quality sound. The DR-60DmkIIs HDDA mic preamplifiers (High Definition Discrete Architecture) employ discrete circuitry and parts, approved after months of evaluation testing by Tascam. The HDDA s circuit achieves a high equivalent input noise (EIN) of -120 dBu for low input noise.
