TASCAM's DR-07 brings portable digital recording to an even smaller, more affordable package. A pair of highly-sensitive built in mics captures a wide stereo image, recording in either MP3 or 16/24-bit WAV format. The DR-07 is powered by AA batteries and it transfers files to a computer using a high-speed USB 2.0 connection. The versatile recorder even includes a windscreen, tripod stand mount and 2GB SD card to start recording right away. This Limited Edition is finished in stylish black chrome.
Musicians will appreciate the playback functions of the DR-07, including the ability to loop MP3s and slow them down without changing the pitch. External microphones and sources can be recorded through the mic/line input, and the recorder offers analog limiting, low cut and auto gain setting for great-sounding audio. But for great-sounding recordings, the compact DR-07 is all you need.

I bought this recorder to capture new song ideas and live (metal band) practice jam's, however I was pleasantly surprised of the play back quality. And the ease of downloading songs from this recorder to my computer is unmatched by any other digital recorder I own. Make sure you read the manual, there are a few filters/settings you'll need to be aware of, we play pretty loud to match the volume of the drums, and when set properly, the DR07 handles the volume with no issues. For the price, no song writer should be without the DR07.
Quite cool little recorder! I got it to record rehearsals and live gigs. The feature I was looking for in addition to the built in mikes, was the line in which other recorders in its price class didn't have. So far I've only used the built in mikes for rehearsal and the sound quality it pretty good. I find it most useful to capture song ideas because it's right there, easy to use, and I can play it back through ear buds or my studio monitors.
I've spent thousands of hours behind mikes, mixers and recording equipment, usually taking up whole rooms. I got this recorder to go with a portable mixer for doing field work. I ended up with pretty much everything I'm used to using in a studio, and it fits in my pocket. TASCAM is always choice stuff, but this little widget is a real prize even for them. And it rarely matters, but I can't help and mention the "black chrome" finish on it -- it's just pretty. It's built solid, has everything well covered in the manual (which comes on paper AND in the included 2GB SD card), and even my big fingers don't trip over the buttons since they're small but far enough apart to prevent mishap. The windscreen could fit better, and I'm a little miffed that the AC adapter doesn't come with it (do NOT try to use another, trust me). The screen is a little crowded since it's so complete and so small, but even my tired old eyes can see the amber LCD easily. I'd planned on getting some more capable equipment later, but frankly now I don't need to. I'm still finding out this thing will do stuff that I hadn't even thought of trying. The internal stereo mikes are adequate. With something like the TM-ST1 stereo condenser mike (yes, the mike jack is powered), it'd be a top notch portable unit in any book. Hooked to a mixer via line in/out... you're in the studio. Hours of recording time with the included 2GB card, dozens of hours if stored as compressed files (internal conversion to MP3 or WAV), and it can take up to a 32GB card. Between quality and features vs. cost, I have rarely seen such a good value.
tascam has long been an important name in pro audio and recording, but this little handheld digital recorder is the bomb. for the Price and functionality you can't beat it. I lugged a sony dat machine around for years to get quality live board tapes from show, this is like in your pocket, a quick hookup and go, once you get the proper settings. simple easy. i'm so glad i finally jumped into the 21 century
I bought this recorder as a Valentine's Day gift for my husband. Right after making the purchase, I showed a link to this site to a few of his friends - they were really blown away at the affordability of such a high-tech specialty product. Once we exchanged gifts my husband sat with his head phones on and the manual in his hand recording the television, and my voice - pretty much anything that was around. We were both really impressed with the sound quality - you can hear everything in the room. My husband has mostly been using it to capture song ideas while he tools around on the guitar or piano. He had some buddies over to jam recently and they recorded their sesh to rehash later - everyone was very happy with the playback quality. The only thing negative I could possible drum up about this recorder - And it's really only a half-complaint - its very very lightweight. It almost feels like a toy, or that you could easily break the casing. However, you can look at the lightweightedness (is that even a word?) as being another perk. It fits in your pocket, and doesn't pull your pants down with weight - or it won't overburden your gear bag.
