Product Description

Style: Handheld Recorder

Product Description

TASCAM’s DR-05 brings high-quality stereo recording to an easy-to-use portable powerhouse with a size and price that anyone can handle. The DR-05 records in MP3 or WAV format – including 96kHz/24-bit high-resolution audio – to microSD or microSDHC media. A pair of all-new microphones handles up to 125dB SPL with the sensitivity to capture every detail. With new recording features like Peak Reduction and Quick Menu, the DR-05 puts album-quality recording in the palm of your hand. Premium-quality Sound Everything about the DR-05 is designed to get the best quality recordings of your music. A new pair of built-in microphones withstands up to 125dB SPL – the volume of a jet plane from 200 feet away – yet still have the sensitivity to capture every detail of a performance. You can add your own microphone or line-level source through the 1/8” stereo input, including plug-in power for microphones that need it. Simple to Operate The layout of the DR-05 has been revamped to be quick and easy to work with one thumb. Operations like recording, adjusting levels, deleting bad takes and adding markers are just a button press away. Dig deeper to find features like limiting, low cut filtering, a built-in chromatic tuner and more. Classic TASCAM features are included, like Variable Speed Audition to loop and slow down music without changing the pitch – perfect for transcribing or learning new music. A Level Align function can be switched on for playback, to smooth out any sudden volume jumps, and a built-in speaker is also provided. The two AA batteries are enough to power the recorder for 17 1/2 hours, even while recording at CD quality. For musicians and recordists at any stage of their career, there’s no easier way to get great-sounding recordings than TASCAM’s DR-05.

From the Manufacturer

TASCAM's DR-05 puts premium recording quality in the palm of your hand. Up to 96kHz/24-bit Broadcast WAV film recording provides better than CD quality to capture every detail. Record WAV or MP3 files to the included 2GB microSD Card, or expand with your own microSD & SDHC media.

Like all TASCAM products, the DR-05 is simple to use with functions like two-button record and the Quick Menu for fast setting changes.

Omni Condenser Microphones

DR-40 Adjustable Microphones

Built into the DR-05 are a pair of omnidirectional condenser microphones. These stereo microphones are tailored for natural ambient recording, with rich bass response and lower handling noise than most handheld recorders.

The built-in microphones capture a wide, natural frequency range suitable for any type of voice, nature or musical recording. A 1/8" microphone input is also available for adding your own stereo microphone or recording a line-level source.

Like most TASCAM handheld recorders, the DR-05 includes playback modes to loop a section of playback or slow it down without changing the pitch, perfect for learning new music. A built-in speaker is included for checking recording without headphones. The Level Align feature smooths out level jumps during playback to help you monitor your raw, unmastered recordings.

Other handy additions include a chromatic tuner and tripod stand mount.

Peak Limiter Prevents Clipping

Built-in Peak limiter prevents clipping

A built-in stereo peak limiter prevents unexpected loud sounds from distorting your recording. Just flip it on to keep sudden jumps from ruining your takes.

Another recording mode is the Auto Level setting, which sets the level based on the sound level in the room. Other settings include a low cut filter, useful for removing rumble or wind noise when outdoors. (A windscreen is also sold seperately.)

Pros: several recording formats, excellent sound quality, 'quick' button is awesome, several gain control settings, intuitive UI, AA batteries, threaded for mounting on tripod/mic stand, aux in and outs, (Looks like it can supply phantom power to an ext mic?! Sweet!)

Cons: None at All.

Bottom Line: I've owned at least a half a dozen different digital recorders in the past decade. This one is BY FAR my favorite. The quality of the recorded audio alone makes it a great purchase. I use it for recording meetings and music and it works great for either. I really like how the level control works. The 'auto level' setting makes every voice in the room audible for meetings while the 'Limiter' setting is great for live music. There's no shortage of menu options, including nice things like a Alkaline/NiMH setting which keeps the battery gauge accurate for different battery types. The only improvement I could think of would be an NiMH charging circuit built in. But if they added it I'd expect to pay more.. At under a C-note this thing is a great purchase!

And did I mention it sounds amazing?

It's a great value for what you get. I use it mostly to record myself playing piano, but it also takes good recordings of live acoustic performances such as band and choir concerts. Great for easy, basic recordings.
