  • Excerpt: This recorder works great. So many great features crammed into a small hand held device. Light weight. Lock-in XLR plug mechanism is terrific. Menu is easy to navigate. So many online resources on how to use. Hard to believe it is so inexpensive for what it can co.

  • Excerpt: I bought the Tascam DR-40 for recording vocals and use it as an aid for song writing. I really like that it has a simple and intuitive menu. In a matter of a few seconds it is ready to record. Recorded audio playback is superb. I highly recommend it without reservation. The DR-40 is the real deal.

Tascam DR-40

  • Excerpt: This product is an extension of my thoughts. Lyrics, stories, rhythm lines that are developed during my travels can easily be kept on tape to later jog my memory. I take the device to bed. In the quiet moment before I fall asleep I often think of a lyric. I put it on tape so I can recapture the thought in the morning. This all helps with my creativity!!!
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Powerful, Versatile
  • Cons: Headphones Needed, Larger Disk Needed

Easy to use and very portable

  • Excerpt: I have a larger Tascam unit that will record directly to SD and CD-Rom, but wanted a smaller, portable unit to use for off-site music teaching sessions. With the SD card, this unit is exactly what I needed. The recordings are clear and easily transferable. I also bought the wired remote control and the package with the wind screen, AC power, and microphone stand adapter. The battery life is o.k., but since it's just a couple of AAs, having extras around is easy.
  • Pros: Easy to set up and use, Light, Portable

  • Excerpt: I am not an audio expert and was somewhat reluctant to make this purchase. I'm glad I did so. This is a powerful instrument and is surprisingly easy to use. I bought it to help improve the sound of home videos shot with a DSLR. Based on early experiences, this was a very good purchase for this purpose.
  • Pros: Ease of Use, Powerful
  • Cons: None yet

Great Recorder

  • Excerpt: I use this recorder as a stand alone live music recorder and as an interview recorder with a LAV mike plugged in. It works great for both purposes. The menu system is pretty straight forward. Set your recording parameters, in my case 16 bit, 48k and your input; either the built in mikes or the external LAV. I use the Limiter setting for the levels control. That's it. The batteries seem to last forever and the built in mikes provide excellent stereo sound quality.
  • Pros: Cost Effective, Good Built In Mikes, Many Recording Options, Quality Builld
  • Cons: Maybe Too Many Menu Optio, No 18 Stereo Input, No Eighth Inch Stereo Inp

Beautiful Audio that's also accessible!

  • Excerpt: I bought the Tascam recorder when it was on sale to pair with my BMPCC cause it's audio is terrible. What a great recorder, it's easy to navigate the menus and it's powerful. It has space for 3 batteries, so it will last longer then recoders with two. It's made of plastic, but I mount it on a rig, so it's much more lightweight.
