  • 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

Works great, but picks up interference

  • Excerpt: I've used this recorder on just about every video shoot since I purchased it, and have loved the sound quality on every shoot but one. I was shooting an interview, one which couldn't be interrupted or reshot. The interviewee's assistant was on her computer, tapping into the local wifi, and the recorder picked up the interference rendering that snip of audio useless. I had to loop the camera audio to cover those lapses. Didn't turn out too well.

Audio recorder

  • Excerpt: Cheap gizmo to accomplish the task. I really wanted a Sound Devices recorder. But considering the environment and unpredictability of my upcoming circumstances I went with this much cheaper device. It's plasticy but functional. You gotta pay attention to it's slightly flimsy design but for the price it's acceptable. I won't feel so bad if it gets run over by a truck. It's a little noisy all things relative, but does 2 room tracks and 2 external tracks.

The Versatile Recorder

  • Excerpt: I use this for on the street interviews, recording of music rehearsals and podcasts for my blog. Both my lava mic and stick mic works with XLR cables. Almost easy to use, you just have to read that manual back to back to know how to make particular adjustments.
  • Pros: Clear, Light Weight
  • Cons: Set Up Can Be Confusing

  • Summary: Great frequency response, and a better high-end (treble response) than the competitor. Very ergonomic controls. Great for recording live instrumentation or vocals. I highly recommend it.
