TASCAM INTRODUCES DR-X SERIES — AudioTechnology
Tascam introduces the DR-X Series, the next generation of its line of professional grade handheld recorders.
The ideal companion for videographers, voiceover artists, songwriters, and podcasters, the DR-40X features integrated unidirectional stereo mics with scalable A/B or X/Y configuration, dual XLR/1/4-inch combo inputs, built-in phantom power for condenser mics, integrated four-track capability, and wired remote control option. DSLR filmmakers will appreciate the DR-40X’s Auto-Tone function, providing an audio cue tone identifying each recording take.
The new DR-X Series now adds a new model, the affordable DR-07X, designed to deliver professional performance for musicians and voiceover artists. With its dual integrated scalable unidirectional A/B or X/Y configurable mics, the DR-07X is great for music recording, spoken word, and more.
Incorporating all of the DR-07X’s features minus the scalable microphones, the DR-05X is equipped with a pair of omnidirectional condenser mics, making it the ideal tool for recording music, meetings, dictation, and more.
The DR-X Series also incorporates a 2-in/2-out USB audio interface that makes all DR-X Series recorders a perfect fit for live streaming, podcasting, and digital audio workstations.
All DR-X models have a revamped user interface, making it easy to access recording, adjusting levels, deleting takes, adding markers, and other common functions with just the click of a thumb. Multi-language menus are included. Capacity for microSDXC cards are increased to 128GB.
Other features in the DR-X Series include a powerful daylight-viewable white backlit display, as well as Dictation Mode, which enables the user to instantly jump back audio playback in preselected increments including speed control and a special dictation EQ. Overwrite Mode allows users to select a precise Record drop-in time for replacement recording with one level of undo. The DR-X Series’ Auto-Recording function can be set to begin recording when a sound is detected, and its Pre-Recording function delivers fail-safe recordings with up to two seconds of pre-record time.
