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 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.

This case makes the Tascam DR-680 more accessible! The Recorder it self doesn't come with a case but it does come with a strap. This case works in conjunction with the strap the device comes with.

This case provides adequate protection for the DR-680 and does so as a price less than the completion. All ports remain accessible. The pouch on top holds the power adapter and USB cable, but nothing else.

This case fits the DR-680, tightly enough that you need to work it in. The pegs from the DR-680s stick through clear plastic on the sides. Dual Velcro secured flaps cover the inputs and outputs on each side, with additional covers for the top mounted controls and the bottom mounted batteries.

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".

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.
