I've only used it once so far but the sound and clarity was great.I play guitar for my church choir.I placed the recorder under my amp which sits on a stand.I pointed the head of the recorder towards our bass and keyboard players amps.It picked up everyone crystal clear with no distortion.The balance of the instruments was a little off due to my placement of the recorder,but everthing was super clean. Our drummer sits behind plexi-glass and even he was picked up well.There might be other hand held recorders with more bells and whistles,but for just straight ahead recording I am more than pleased with the Dr-07. The only down side I see is the battery use. They go quick or maybe I was doing something wrong.Buying the power adapter should fix that.

Awesome pocket recorder!!!

By Rocker

from Dallas

Needed something to record a whole band, 4 people, rock to metal style as we were auditioning singers and needed something quickly at my drummers house. I must say that I was really impressed with the DR-07! It was very easy to use and navigating menus is very straightforward, didn't even have to open the manual. Popped in the batteries (2 AA's came with it) and hit the record button 2 times to start it. It records to a SD card, it came with a 2GB one, bought a 8GB as well and it worked fine. It can record to MP3 or WAV, opt WAV, good thing I got the 8GB stick. Was anxious to hear it, so plugged it up to the PC via the USB cable it came with, (works with an external card reader too) and WOW, the clarity was amazing! The drums were a little loud, moved it to a more central area and it was even better. I was really amazed how it captured the bass & kick drum, the sound was killer as the bottom end kicked on the recording and didn't clip or sound distorted. Burned a few CD's and passed them out to the band, they were impressed as well. The batteries lasted about 6 hours worth, manual stated up to 12. Tried other batteries like the Lithium with same results, so carried extra just in case, and bought a digital camera case at Wal-Mart for it and stuff it in my guitar gig bag. The 2 mics on top are awesome, it caught EVERY nuance. Came with a foam "windscreen". It does not have a AC power adapter, however, it would add to the price of the unit. I like the battery option vs. rechargeable. I have seen some people on YouTube using other mics with it, but I think the built in mics sound as good or better in some examples. Bottom line, if you don't have the money for studio, or need to record something on the fly, this unit is WELL worth the money! I give this unit 5 stars, despite the missing AC power, solely on the recording quality and ease of use/portability.

Great Recorder

By Dylan Knowles

from Pittsburgh, PA

Just got this today , for $99 in store. Didn't even have to use the manual to figure out how to use it, pretty good sound quality, unbeatable for the price. I would definitely recommend it for personal recording purposes, but nothing professional. At this price, you can't go wrong.

excellent product

By Reid Stripling

from Atlanta, GA

I don't ordinarily write reviews but I felt compelled to write this one because this product has helped me so much. I mainly use this item as a songwriting tool and a practicing tool. I never miss a song idea anymore and I can very quickly and easily listen to myself. The condenser mics in this thing are excellent for the price. I have dropped it on the concrete once and it survived. The product is well made but definitely must be taken care of. I doubt it would survive to many spills. However for the price it is well constructed. You cannot adjust levels with this thing. You just get one track and you have to place it in the right spot. I hang it from a mic stand and sing into it while I play and acoustic. It works great for me. I would definitely buy another one if something happened to this one. Great product

Excellent choice to record practices and song ideas

By resoldered

from Saint Louis Illinois

We run this during practices to have them for future reference and subsequent practicing. I also use it to develop song ideas. The sound quality is good for these purposes. We record with it on the mp3 option at a high sampling rate and the quality is just fine. This thing could not be easier to use. Simple controls and easy transfer to a computer (works just like a jump drive). This beats dragging a laptop out and connecting it to a mixer, mics, etc... A very good deal for 100 bucks.

Perfect for live events

By Robert Stromsong

from Corpus Christi, Tx

Picked this up on the way to a live event to try and get a CD quality recording of the event. So, thankfully Guitar Center was about a block from our event and I was able to pick this awesome little recorder up just in time to scan the manual, pop in some Duracell batteries, and hit the record button twice and then let the DR-07 do it's thing. And, it definitely did a great job. The recording is now being transferred to CD directly from the SD card. Next time, I will definitely check the recording level and tweak accordingly. Also, should have used the LMT setting to prevent unwanted noise and clipping, but the live recording still came out great! This recorder worked great and I am very happy with this little wonder. Will use to record acoustic ideas too. Good job, TASCAM!

Great for the price

By Mario Olivo

from Westminster, CA

This is a great unit if you are looking for something portable and flexible when it comes to recording format and size. I love the way this is stored on an SD card and how you can upgrade to an SD HC 64 GB! You can also choose between recording as WAV or MP3. Big plus on retreiving files on a computer, just plug it in and copy it over. No hassle. Great digital VU meters. Wish volume control was setup differently for easier control but not bad for a portable unit. I personally use this unit as a backup just in case my main unit (a laptop) quits out on me. If you are into recheargable batteries (quick charging now a days, 15 minutes, are better) this is a very self contained, high quality unit. Would definitly recommend it.

Small but Mighty!

By Yaaz.

from San Fran, CA

As small, simple and not too expensive as this device might be, it is a great investment! I do a lot of public speaking and podcasting, and can't say anything other than that the quality of voice is unbelievable, it really added quality to what I do. You can learn how to use it in 10 mins and get going!

Big Surprise in Little Package

By MLH

from Beaumont CA

I have to agree with the awe struck review. I could not believe how well this little thing reproduced our practice sessions. My group likes it so well that we are going to use it for recording a guide track for studio work. It is easy to use. has limiter feature that sounds transparent, but never clipped. 4 stars instead of 5 only because I like other reviewers feel that the AC adapter should be included. battery life is a couple hours at best, so make sure you get the adapter.

Great Product

By Tracey

from Harrison, AR

Was purchased as a gift. He was very impressed with the sound and quality of this recorder. Used this to make a CD, after recording simply hooked it to the computer and a popup came up to burn to a CD, was very simple. Had recorded and burned to a CD within minutes. Great Product and highly recommend.
