5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent recorder at an affordable price
By MED-REK on December 24, 2018
I've had a Tascam DR-05 recorder for many years and it has been a workhorse for my low-budget professional video projects. These included recording music recitals, microphone audio for film production, concert audio and recording voice-overs for my many videos. I still have the DR-05 and it still works well, but it has one big failing: The DR-05 has only a microphone-level input and can't record line-level signals. That caused me some grief a couple of times when I used an attenuator to knock down line-level signals to mic-level for the DR-05 to record. Sometimes the results were fine but a few times they were not.

Enter the Tascam DR-40. I got it at a great price and the DR-40 records at both line-level and mic-level, which means I will not need to use an external attenuator. It also means that I don't have to knock a signal down (with an attenuator) just to amplify it for recording. The result is that it makes better line-level recordings than the DR-05.

So far, I like everything about the DR-40. It's small enough to fit in a pocket, but big enough to have two XLR connectors. It will take both balanced (XLR) and unbalanced (1/4-inch) connectors -- both line-level and mic-level. It has a convenient input-level control on the side. The display is big enough to easily see. The record quality is excellent -- yes, you can get 24-bit, 192 kHz sampling in other recorders, but I can't hear the difference between those devices and the DR-40 (which does 24-bit, 96 kHz sampling). The Tascam DR-40 can record four channels, but I have not used it to record more than two. I've used the DR-40's built-in mics only a couple of times, but the sound seems pretty good through them. The unit takes 3 AA batteries and runs for many hours. And I like that the DR-40 uses a full-size SD card, unlike the Tascam DR-05's microSD card. (I hate the thought that I might not have a micro-SD adapter when I need one.)

April 4, 2020 edit: I've since used the DR-40 to record a couple dozen concerts, connected to the house mixer to get clean audio. And the audio has been great. If you search on "garnet rogers annandale arts", you will find a song called "Small Victory" recorded by Canadian folksinger Garnet Rogers. I recorded that video, using the Tascam DR-40 to capture the audio directly from the house mixer. It sounds great! (Good song, too!)

So far, the Tascam DR-40 is the perfect recorder for my usage: small, yet powerful and easy to use. And very clean. I recommend the Tascam DR-40.
