Fits like a second skin, takes some time to put on, a lot of pulling and stretching, but it is an exact fit! Great for protecting your recorder in the field, outdoors. Full of hidden protective flaps, clear covers and velcro fasteners.
The screen is placed on the side and not from above, its annoying to operate it this way. there is NO gain knobs, and its really hard to see if any input is peaking since the electronic gain bar is so tiny. no red indication for peaking.
I have used the previous model for several years and have been quite happy. I bought this unit because of its advertised better clock, having had problems syncing video with the old unit. Differs from my cameras' timing by about 5 ppm, whereas the old unit was 45 ppm.
I was very happy until an XLR connector became stuck in the unit, almost had to destroy the port to remove it. I ended up sawing off the connector, and drilling a hole to try to disconnect the locking device with a small flat screwdriver. It came out eventually by using a pair of "mole grips".
I bought this 6 channel Tascam to replace my old 4 channel Edirol R4. I do live music recording for a band & need to multi track record different sources. My Edirol R4 had undergone a transparency mod so it produced a very low self-noise.
For the price, this product is great. I am very happy with my purchase and will recommend this unit.
Let me start out by saying I do not usually write reviews. I do read them though, a lot! After all the research, time and money I put into assembling my audio bag, I felt almost guilty not writing one. It took me six months of trial and error to finally master this setup so...
This is a good mixer for a one-man-band sound recordist. Heavy emphasis on 'recordist' as this isn't really a mixing board. With only one nob to control your channels it's impossible to properly mix most setups, which is ok. The ability to ISO record is a huge plus for post work.
I have owned a DR-680 for several years, and jumped at the chance to buy the successor, the DR-680 MkII. Tascam kept the basic proven design and improved it. The preamps have always been good, but Tascam claims to have replaced the opamps and capacitors for improved low noise versions.
I have been using the Edirol R4 for over a decade and wanted to get an additional multi-track recorder for when we need to send out two video teams. We primarily use these type of recorders to pull line feeds from sound boards in theaters.
