About the Tascam DR-60D MkII

TASCAM have updated their award winning DR-60D professional recorder for DSLRs. The updated model now features improved microphone preamps and gain of up to 64dB, making it suitable for quiet voices.

For years, filmmakers have been trying different methods for recording audio, using bulky recorders designed for music and trying to transform the inferior audio technology built-into DSLR's. Now TASCAM has designed an answer that pros and amateurs alike have been waiting for.

The DR-60D is a brand new 4-track solid-state recorder utilizing TASCAM's decades of experience. The recorder utilizes high-grade HDDA pre-amps, legendary AD converters, and a durable but lightweight structure and shape. This device will fit snuggly under any camera or into any rig, and record up to 96kHz/24-bit high quality audio straight to SD/SDHC media.

Filmmakers have at their disposal two 1/4"-XLR Locking Combo MIC/LINE Inputs, 3.5mm Stereo MIC Input, Camera In, Camera Out, Line Out and Headphone Out. Both 1/4"-XLR Combo Inputs supply +48V Phantom Power and the 3.5mm Input supplies Plug-In Power for microphones requiring a bias voltage.

The DR-60D is incredibly easy to use, employing TASCAM's very popular user interface and external controls for every major operation. The body structure, soft-touch keys and dials are designed specifically to help eliminate handling noise. The multiple record modes include, 4-Channel Record, Auto Record and TASCAM's Dual Record "Safety Track" Mode make the DR-60D one of the most versatile recorders on the market.

High-Quality HDDA(High Definition Discrete Architecture) Mic Preamps
High quality mic preamps are a necessity for high-grade sound. The DR-60D's HDDA mic preamplifirers utilize discrete circuitry and premium parts approved after months of evaluation tests. The HDDA s circuit achieves an incredibly high EIN (-120dBu).In addition, CIRRUS LOGIC's AD converter (made famous on the DR-40 linear PCM recorder) is installed to ensure high-lineality 

4 Inputs, 3 Outputs and Simultaneous 4 Track Recording with Mixer Controls Built-In
The DR-60D can record up to 4-tracks simultaneously allowing for various mic set-ups. Inputs 1/L and 2/R can be selected for monaural operation or stereo link operation. There are 3 outputs at one's disposal. A CAMERA OUT for reference track recording to the camera, LINE OUT to run to a mixer, and a Headphone Out for direct monitoring. (In 4CH mode, 1/L and 2/R inputs cannot be selected for monaural operation.) 
The DR-60D supplies mixing functionality to all 4 tracks. Adjust PAN, Level, Limiters, HPF (40/80/120Hz) and Delay easily from the user-friendly set-up. TASCAM is well known for having the easiest to use controls in the market. The DR-60D is ready to use right out of the box with its external, non-menu-intensive controls.

Multiple Record Modes (Including Dual "Safety Track" Record Mode) for Self-Tailored Recording
The DR-60D can be tailored further to one's recording needs with the various record modes. Choose between: 
MONO/DUAL MONO mode:These modes are ideal for single source shooting STEREO/DUAL STEREO mode:These modes are ideal for shooting with a stereo or mid-side microphone4CH mode:This mode is ideal for all-around movie shooting. For example, you can record two sources separately plus one stereo microphone all simultaneously. 
DUAL MONO and DUAL STEREO mode automatically provide a back-up safety track in case the initial levels where set too high and clips/peaks were encountered. The safety track can be set to record from -6dB to -12dB lower than the initial take.

Soft-Touch Keys to Eliminate Handling Noise and Various Other Features such as the Slate Function were Designed Specifically for DSLR Use
Every aspect of the DR-60D is designed specifically for DSLR Audio for Video Recording. The keys of the unit are designed specifically for quiet operation to eliminate handling noise. The Slate feature is designed to mark tracks easily while in production. The input and output layout is designed for versatile use. Whether the device is used under a camera, on a rig or strapped around a solitary sound engineer, TASCAM's DR-60D will meet all on-site audio production needs.

Convenient Features Ideal for DSLR Shooting

Versatile Slate Tone Generator Provides Easy-Adjustments for On-Site Movie Editing
The internal slate tone generator produces various tones for easy track making and recognition. Slate tones can be generated from 2 operation modes; 
Automatic: OFF/HEAD(rec start)/HEAD+TAIL(rec start and end) (You can select duration of the slate tone: 0.5/1/2/3 sec)
Manual: Push the SLATE button for tone. (In HOLD, the SLATE button is disabled for mistake prevention.) 

Dedicated CAMERA OUT Provides Simultaneous Recording between DSLR and the DR-60D
The CAMERA OUT connector outputs the sound mixed internally on the DR-60D. This output is equipped with an adjustable level control dial due to the lack of input level control on most DSLR's. This ensures a quality reference track is recorded onto your camera. Everything being recorded to the SD card can be sent to the camera - including slate tones - to make sync easier.

Channels 3 & 4 - 3.5mm Input Connector Supports High-Output Video Camera Microphones
The channels 3&4 input connector supports high-level maximum input up to +10dBV and have plug-in power available. Most video camera microphones are high-level output and equipped with a 3.5mm output connector.

Tripod Socket Placed on the Bottom and a Screw for Camera Attachment Placed on Top
The DR-60D can be placed between a DSLR Camera and a tripod, or mounted to a rig easily. In addition, the bracket of the top panel can be removed when you wish to attach the DR-60D to stabilizers.

510g Light-Weight Body Designed for Rugged Portability
The DR-60D's body was manufactured with very rigid plastic for a durable but lightweight design. TASCAM understands how important weight is to ensure one is getting the right shots and steady camera movement when filmmaking. In adiition to weight, the DR-60D is extremely compact while remaining feature-rich. Only 133mm (5.25") wide, the DR-60D will not interfere with any normal camera operation. Also, all batteries can be replaced without removing the device from the Camera or tripod / rig.
