TASCAM Introduces DR-60D DSLR Recorder

The new TASCAM DR-60D is an audio recorder designed for on-set filmmakers and videographers using DSLR cameras.

The 4-track solid-state recorder employs high-grade pre-amps and D/A converters combined with a durable but lightweight structure and shape. It will fit snuggly under any camera or into any rig, and record up to 96 kHz/24-bit high quality audio straight to SD/SDHC media.

The DR-60D includes two 1/4-inch/XLR locking combo mic/line inputs, 3.5mm stereo mic input, camera in, camera out, line out and headphone out. Both 1/4-inch/XLR Combo Inputs supply +48-volt phantom power and the 3.5mm Input supplies plug-in power for microphones requiring a bias voltage.

The DR-60D employs TASCAM’s 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 (first made popular on the DR-40).

TASCAM is releasing the product with an estimated street price of $399.
