TASCAM DR-2d - announced at NAMM
« on: January 14, 2010, 05:27:42 PM »
The offerings from Tascam looked the most interesting to me.  ;D I thought they'd deserve a dedicated thread each...

This function might be useful to some of us:

     Dual Recording prevents distortion by recording a second track at lower level
TASCAM's DR-2d Portable Digital Recorder brings high-resolution recording to a compact, affordable package. It offers up to 96kHz/24-bit WAV or MP3 recording to SD cards, and recordings can be transferred to computer through high-speed USB 2.0. A new dual recording feature records a copy of your audio at a lower level, so if the level suddenly jumps you have a backup instead of a distorted performance.

    * New stereo condenser microphone design with 74dB signal to noise ratio
    * Dual recording function records a copy of your audio at a lower level, so you always have a backup in case of overload
    * Up to 96kHz/24-bit WAV recording or MP3 recording modes
    * Records to SD or SDHC cards
    * Internal effects including reverb
    * Auto-recording function starts when input exceeds a reference level
    * Limiter, low cut filter and auto gain control for input
    * Metronome
    * Variable Speed Audition changes the playback speed without changing the pitch
    * Loop playback mode
    * USB 2.0 connection for file transfer
    * 1/8" stereo microphone input
    * 1/8" stereo line input
    * 1/8" stereo headphone output
    * 128x64 backlit LCD display
    * Powered by two AA batteries or optional PS-P520 power adapter
    * Built-in speaker
    * Tripod attachment screw hole
    * Includes wireless remote control, 2GB SD card, AA batteries and carrying pouch

I'll believe it when I see it.  I don't know why everyone is debating the M10 (eg., vs Edirol).  Once you try it you'll be hooked.  The mics have extremely low noise, the unit is solid, and the battery life is incredible.  What more could you want?

Well, this could contribute directional microphones, but aside from that, I don't think you can improve much on the M10.  Well XLR jacks and four tracks but that would make it bigger...

Please DO NOT mail me with tech questions.  I will try to answer in the forums when I get a chance.  Thanks.

If all you need is a bitbucket, buy a Microtrack II for $175.
If you need other features, like decent sounding built-in
mics, then you'll have to pay a little more. 

The DR-2d looks to be the successor to the DR-1, which sells
for about $200 today.  I expect that the DR-2d will be priced
at $300 to start, so stores will be able to sell out their stock
of DR-1 units.  Then the price of the DR-2d will head downwards.

The fact that everyone seems to have totally different rigs is not a bad thing. I think Sony products have made a real quality comeback, but I like Tascam for my recordings. Well I would like to have one of EVERY recorder on the market, but that is just me.

I thought this was interesting for those really being watched ste@lth moments:
* Dual recording function records a copy of your audio at a lower level, so you always have a backup in case of overload

I wonder what that means for recording capacity?  How big of card does this thing accept?  Pretty cool feature if it's practical.

Looks like a nice upgrade to the DR-1:

DR-2d: 24/96, two AA batteries. recessed, stationary on-board mics, dual recording mode.

DR-1:  24/48, proprietary lithium battery, sliding on-board mics, no dual recording mode.


I love the DR-1 so far.  2 years running and countless shows, and still using the original lithium battery.  AA's are king for festies though.  Sliding mics are a tiny nuisance when taping down the line-in connection.  24/96 capability and dual recording mode is a big huge plus. 

I'm wondering if the sound quality is the same.  Will have to wait for Wingfield's samples.  The DR-1's Mic-in is superior to the Line-in, for its warm butter smooth.  Looking for an upgrade to the Line-in sound.  If it is upgraded to the Mic-in sound, I might make the jump to this in `10.
