The TASCAM DR-1 puts world-dominating power into your pocket. Its built-in stereo microphones include a unique variable angle mechanism, so you can set it to record from any angle. The DR-1 is the first portable recorder to include a 1GB card, so you'll have plenty of CD or MP3-quality recording time for long rehearsals and concerts. And with a street price of just $299, everyone's gonna want one. A pair of microphones is mounted on a variable angle mechanism, which allows the recorder to record from almost any angle. The built-in stereo condenser microphones are arranged for a wide stereo image, and an external mic can also be used. The unit includes a generous 1GB SD card for hours of recording at MP3 or WAV file formats. The DR-1 also includes auto gain control and analog limiting for easy setup and a low-frequency cutoff to eliminate handling or wind noise. Now available, the AK-DR1 Accessory Kit!

Besides, if you want to do overdubs, it's the only choice; I'd consider this the top pick for songwriters. " - Craig Anderton, EQ Magazine " This recorder delivers in spades. " - Recording Magazine " Very easy to operate... an impressive stereo recorder boasting a few very nice features. " - Sound on Sound " If you're a musician who wants a compact recorder for learning songs, TASCAM delivers the features the others can't touch. " - Electronic Musician " ...the DR-1 would be great for a songwriter or arranger to take to the beach or on a family vacation... " - ProAudio Review ( read more )
