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.

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.
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.
