Excerpt: I use this to record my band during rehearsals. I set it on my mic stand adapter and let it roll. The buttons are solid and easy to press. The best part is the XLR/1/4" input combo for channels 3 and 4. This is the most versatile 4 track recorder I've owned. It uses the internal stereo mics as tracks 1-2, and your own sound source through the bottom connectors for channels 3-4.
Pros: 4 channels, Battery Or Adapter Power, easy to use, Many Audio Formats
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.
Pros: Intuitive controls, Quick Set-up, Splendid Audio, Well Made
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
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.
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.
