TASCAM’s DR-60DmkII, is the audio recording solution for on-set filmmakers and videographers. The streamlined design fits perfectly under a DSLR camera rig, without relying on bulky recorders or the limited audio quality of the camera’s microphone in.
Designed to cater to the needs of DSLR audio for video recording, the DR-60DmkII 4-Channel Portable Recorder for DSLR from Tascam is the latest generation of their popular audio recording device. Capable of recording 4 channels of audio simultaneously in up to 24-bit/96 kHz WAV/BWF files, the DR-60DmkII boasts Tascam’s High Definition Discrete Architecture (HDDA) preamps and a Cirrus Logic analog-to-digital converter chip for accurate and pristine audio capture. It features 2 combination XLR/TRS microphone/line-level inputs with selectable phantom power, and a stereo 1/8″ microphone input, capable of handling high-output microphones and supplying plug-in power.
A built-in digital mixer gives you control over panning and level for each track, and allows you to insert a limiter or high-pass filter in addition to setting individual channel delay for distance adjustment. The DR-60DmkII gives you multiple output options as well. The dedicated camera out features adjustable level control to cater to DSLRs that lack input level control. The 1/8″ line output can be used to feed a mixer or secondary recorder, while your monitoring is handled by a dedicated 1/8″ headphone jack.
The device records to SD and SDHC cards and is powered by 4 AA batteries, or an optional battery pack or AC adapter. A 2.5mm remote control input allows you to integrate an optional remote or footswitch control.
