Overview

The TASCAM DR-40 has adjustable mics, 4-track recording and extended battery life, to give you the flexibility you need to record tracks anywhere, and this version comes in a Special Edition Vintage Gold version, so you can show off your passion for recording.

The DR-40 captures up to four tracks from built-in, high-quality condenser microphones, XLR mic or line inputs. The internal mics are adjustable from XY to AB position, helping you to tailor your recording to the sound of the room. A pair of great-sounding TASCAM microphone preamps welcome condenser microphones with phantom power, recording at up to 24-bit/96kHz resolution. It accommodates balanced XLR or 1/4" line inputs using locking Neutrik Combo jacks. The DR-40 accepts SD or SDHC cards up to 32GB, and a 2GB card is included.

Once recorded, playback your takes with EQ and the optional Level Align feature to avoid volume jumps. A stereo reverb effect is also built-in, as well as a speaker and chromatic tuner. Transfer recordings to computer using the USB 2.0 jack. Other features include overdub mode, variable speed playback, limiting and low-cut filter, and much more “ all with TASCAMs simple-to-use interface. Home or live recording is as simple as it gets with the TASCAM DR-40.

Good feature set but disappointing audio specs

Comments about Tascam Special Edition Vintage Gold DR-40 Portable Digital Recorder:

I bought the black one and think Tascam did a great job on the feature set - maybe too good. The mic pre and audio converters in this are just ten year old quality and definitely not up to HD or even current S/N dynamic range spec levels. It's about the same as an old M-audio MicroTrac. Of course at this price (good deal), what should you expect? Good screen user interface. Solid construction and good battery life. Good I/O options for data transfer Good for average recordings and audio capture but not nearly like a Sony or high end Zoom at all. Look closely at the specs first and then decide. If you need better than 102db+ spend more money and get a better unit
