Couldn't sound better!

  • Excerpt: I've never had a recorder before, but this is a pretty good start. In fact, I'd say it beats the H4n because my friends had one of those and I got better audio than him at the same event. Completely recommend for a person starting with audio equipment.

  • Excerpt: The capability to record from the internal mics and the external mic ports at the same time on to two separate audio tracks is what really sold it. It allows you to manipulate your audio in post production for the best sound quality.
  • Pros: Many Different Functions
  • Cons: Runs On 3 Aaa Batteries

  • Excerpt: I use the Dr-40 for recording audio in outdoor adventure videos. It's great for capturing vocals as well as ambient sounds. I wish it had an 1/8" mic input as well as the two 1/4" and XLR inputs.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Low Distortion

  • Excerpt: So far I have been very impressed with the versatile of this little unit. I use it primarily for recording straight off a mixing console, which is made extremely easy with the dual xlr inputs. I love that I can also use the same unit to do in the field recording for video work without carrying extra bulk. Well worth it's price.

2 tracks with mixdown, great audio

  • Excerpt: I bought this after buying one for my job in TV production for use when gathering audio during dSLR shoots. After a little research, I decided on the DR40. I liked it so well, I bought one for myself so I can noodle on my guitar and mix down a few layers later. It works super well, uses AA batteries, SD cards up to 32gb, and looks good as well.
  • Pros: 2 Xlr Combo 14 Inputs, Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Low Distortion, Phantom power
  • Cons: Noisy In The Headphones

Great recorder but hard to use

  • Excerpt: This recorder is perfect. It has all the functions you need and the audio quality is top notch. My gripe is with the menu system and user guide. The menus and buttons are so difficult to figure out that sometimes you just don't want to change anything in fear of not being able to get back to what you had before.
