This is a great little tool for the novice and pro muscian alike.

  • Summary: Whether you are a vocalist, soloist, whatever. To get a good grip on your strengths and weaknesses, all musicians should listen to their sound played back once in awhile. This practice gives you a 'listener's perspective'. A sound that you may not always be aware of. The Tascam DR-1 makes a great practice tool for this purpose. The unit is easy to operate. With the machine in hand, I was able to go thru the entire owners manual in about a half hour.

If you are serious about sound then this machine could be for you.

  • Summary: The Tascam DR-40 is a serious piece of equipment, and as such is aimed at those who wish to use sound either as a stand-alone work as as an adjunct to something like film. The menu system is easy to use and useful functions are readily available using the "Quick" button. I have a long way to go to be fully conversant with this machine but so far are very happy. Negatives: It should come pre-packed with a wind muffler and an adaptor to fit onto a standard flash hot shoe.

  • Summary: First off I'm a 43 year old armature musician that plays country/bluegrass gospel. Our band plays at churchs and Assited living homes. I wanted a recorder that was compact and affordable. Looked at a lot of different ones and kept coming back to the Dr-1. It is very simple to use, and downloads easy to my laptop music studio. I use it all the time to record new tracks and love the overdubbing feature since I play multiple instruments.

  • Summary: On a daily basis I record around for hours of lectures per day at a medical school. This device works great. I plug it in to the "tape out" jacks on the auditorium mixing board using a stereo RCA to 1/8 in mini-plug cable. It is very easy to operate. It also has more than enough battery life. Another great feature is that it connects straight to the computer and one does not need to remove the SD card to retrieve audio files.
  • Pros: Compact Design, High Quality Sound, Long Battery Life, Reliable

  • Summary: This is my first outing into audio and I'm enjoying the experience so far. My main purposes are for interviews and backing tracks for photographs/presentations. Its early days but so far so good - easy to understand, navigate an produce the basics. As I'm a Mac user, I've started using GarageBand for editing which seems fine though no professional review of my results yet.
  • Pros: High Quality Sound, Reliable

  • Summary: Just got the DR1 and really like it. Easy to use, good sounding stereo mic, comes with a 1 GIG card. Easy to connect to computer and offload files. Only thing I'd like to see is option to record in 16 bit, currently only 24 bit; also possibly a speaker would be handy for quick review. Not cheap, but less expensive than comparable products from other manufacturers.
  • Pros: Durable, Good Value, High Quality

  • Summary: I use the DR-1 mostly as a rehearsal tool and it works amazingly well. Very easy to use and is loaded with useful features for my needs, including overdubbing and playback at slower speeds w/o changing the pitch, just to mention a couple. Also it hit's a good price point compared to some other PAR's.[...

  • Excerpt: バンドの練習やライブを録るのに買いました。まだ実際にライブは録っていないのですが、まずは身の回りのなにかとを手当たり次第に録音してみましたが、すごく音がいいです。前に友人のR-09を使った時は、音が誇張された様な感じであまり好きな音ではなかったのですが、DR-1は実際に聴いた感じに近いと思います。ステレオ感も自然です。持った感じも軽くて操作も簡単ですし、買ってよかったです。

DR-1

  • Excerpt: 私は、仕事柄音を録り歩いてきた。かつてはたくさんの機材を持ち運び大掛かりにやっていたが、この小さな1台でそれら全てを代用する時代がやってきた。しかもデータはダビングではなくパソコン操作でコピーできるのだから画期的。 高音質録音できるポータブルレコーダーという括りの中で、他社の同価格帯製品も使ってみたが、ポータブルだからと言ってあまり軽いものは本体の共振を招き音質が良くない。その点でDR-1はクリアしている。音質を論ずるなら一番良いマイクを内蔵し、共振を抑えている機械が一番良いに違いない。 何よりも一番表示窓が大きく、文字やレベル表示も見やすい。操作性もわかりやすく整理されている。 スペックは確かに他社のものの方が高い設定があるものの、このレベルの機械では48k24bit以上の能力があっても実質的に音質はDR-1より良くはならない。(内臓マイクやAD/DAコンバータ、アンプ回路の品質がネックになるため)だから機能的には必要充分であり、これ以上あっても意味がないと思う。 デザインは好みなのでコメントできないが、私は気に入っている。...

DR-1

  • Excerpt: いろいろ口コミや、ネットや店頭でいろいろ調べてDR-1に至りました。30000円台で購入を考えてました。こんな小さい機械でこれだけ良く録れたらかなりいいです。なんといってもノイズが少ないくて同じMDで同じ録音品質でも音のよさがちがいました。オーバーダビングできるのという機能がとてもいいです。 音質はとてもまろやかでHIがきつくなく、低音もとてもふくよかで暖かい感じがしました。いままでMDやほかの小型録音機では味わったことなかったです。 欠点はやはりバッテリでしょう。あれだけ安いってのはたぶん余分なアクセサリーが同封されてないからだと思います。CDロムない、ACアダプタない、充電器ない。結局電池をもう一個かACアダプタを買う羽目になると思います。おまけに5年保証。あと同封のSDカード1Gでは足りなくなってくるかも知れません。100VコンセントからそのままUSBにつなげれるコードがあってつかえたら結構便利かも。 あとは単純にMDと比べて、録音したファイルをPCにすぐ取り込めてIPODなどですぐ聞けるのが便利です。 満足満足!
