Product Description

TASCAM's DR-07mkII 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-07mkII is simple to use with functions like two-button record and the Quick Menu for fast setting changes.

Adjustable Condenser Microphones

DR-40 Adjustable Microphones

Attached to the DR-07mkII are a pair of cardioid condenser microphones. The stereo microphones can be arranged in an XY recording pattern for tight stereo imaging or in an AB pattern for a more ambient recording.

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

When flipping the microphone orientation, the left and right channels automatically flip for correct stereo placement.

Overdub Recording

Perfect for songwriters, the DR-07mkII allows you to build up an arrangement part by part for a full production. Record a guitar demo, then try out a melody by singing along with your previous take. Your original recording is kept, and a second, mixed file is created. The DR-07mkII includes stereo reverb you can use on playback, or use it during recording for a pro, polished sound.

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.)

Useful Playback Features

Like most TASCAM handheld recorders, the DR-07mkII 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.

A stereo reverb effect is available during playback or recording. Another handy additions include a chromatic tuner and tripod mount.

WHAT I USE IT FOR:

I needed a quality recording device to use for my young son's: 1) violin lessons and master classes, i.e., mostly voice; 2) violin practice sessions - intonation, phrasing, etc.; 3) concerts and quartet gigs that he's involved in; and 4) auditions.

After my usual, intensive consumer research into a digital recorder that would satisfy my specific needs -- and under the maximum budget of $150 -- I decided on purchasing a TASCAM DR-07 MKII. Instead of covering all the unit features that anyone can easily read under the "Product Description," such as "Auto Level/Peak Reduction/Limiter," "24bit/98k," "AB/XY Mics," "Tuner," etc., I'll focus more on those features that I like (PROS) - particularly in view of what other brands and models do not have -- and don't like (CONS), as well as some features that are not so obvious and haven't been mentioned by other reviewers.

PROS:

Although TASCAM DR-07MKII Portable Digital Recorder is all constructed with plastic, including the adjustable cardioid condenser microphones (they don't look plastic in the photo), it doesn't "look" cheap like other brands. I had initially preferred a weightier body, but I quickly learned to appreciate its light weight when I realized that I will frequently be using the unit atop my Canon camcorder with a Marshall V-LCD-MT Monitor Adapter 1/4" Mount Adapter To Video Camcorder Hot Shoe For LCD Monitors for independent video and audio capture.

The Built-In Speaker: this is a big plus.

After spending hours reading through the manual which is about 100 pages I was ready to do my first recording. I went to go see a couple of bands at the Nutty Irishman in Long Island. I got a 8 gb card and recorded the entire performance in 24 bit resolution (each song came out to be around a 100 megabytes). When I got home I copied them over to my computer and played them through my computer. I was pleasantly surprised with the audio quality. Very detailed sound and with no noise. I wasn't expecting it to be this good since it is a fairly small package and only costs $149. I guess the microphones are really good. One of the best features is it has a built in in auto leveling. The one I used reduces input levels (temporarilly) if there is a sudden spike in sound (so you don't get distortion). With some practice I might not even need it since the screen has input meters and there is also a peak indicator light that flashes when the input levels are too high (if the levels are set too high you will get distortion). Some of the other features include 1)marking - during recording you press a button that marks a location during a recording 2) division- You can break up a recording into muliple files 3)auto file naming- adds a number to the end of the file so you know the order of the recodings 4) small size- it is a little thick but it fits into a pocket and is easy to hold 5) Buttons- the buttons are well placed and easy to use in low light settings 6)memory - accepts up to a 32 gb card 6)resolution -Will record up to 320 bitrate mpegs files and 24 bit .Read more ›

Having never ventured into the world of audio recorders, I really have no credibility as a reviewer. Now that I have that out of the way, I am already getting plenty of miles out of the DR-07 Mark II. I purchased this recorder mainly to record jam sessions, as most of the time we play for hours and only remember certain parts and may be forgetting those hidden gems. I plopped this recorder down and strummed out a few tunes on my acoustic guitar. While listening to the playback, I was astounded at the quality; it sounded like I was right there in the room. The fidelity is breathtaking. Later on in the week, my wife had her senior thesis reading, so I thought I would take the Tascam along to record her reading. Once again, I was thoroughly satisfied with the performance of this unit. I haven't as of yet tried all of the features, but I am excited to try out the overdub feature among others.
The built-in mics are very sensitive, so when recording, I did notice that every little movement of the unit or button presses can be heard. The overall construction feels solid...the mics have a satisfying click when you swing them out into the wide stereo position. The battery life is decent. I have recorded over two and a half hours at the maximum recording capabilities using the batteries that came with the unit. My new child has also survived its first drop test--From the top of a booth at a bar onto a fairly hard floor (I decided to record some of my friends' drunken karaoke moments), a fall that it seemingly laughed off.
I have no short-term ambition to do any multitrack recording and just needed something extremely portable with decent audio reproduction. If you find yourself in the same boat, the DR-07 mkII will meet and--more than likely--exceed your expectations.
