Features

TASCAM DR-05X

The TASCAM DR-05X is the new standard in stereo hand held recorders with USB Audio Interface.

 



The new standard in stereo hand held recorders

The DR-05X is the new standard in stereo hand held recorders with its high value, powerful features, simple interface and excellent sound quality, It is first choice for recording meetings, music, audio-for-video, dictation, and more.

 

Record clean and clear audio anywhere

DR-05X allows high-quality recording utilizing an easy-to-use interface, and is portable and powerful but with a size and price that anyone can handle.  Dual internal condenser microphones can handle anything from subtle to loud to 125dB SPL, with sensitivity to capture every detail.

 

Simple to operate

The layout of the DR-05X has been revamped to be quick and easy to work with one thumb. Operations like recording, adjusting levels, deleting bad takes and adding markers are just a button press away.

 

Extended battery life

DR-05X uses only two AA batteries and has ultra-long battery capability. When using built-in microphones, recording lasts 17.5 hours when recording with standard 2ch WAV, 44.1kHz/ 16bit format using alkaline batteries.

 


Also DR-05X can be powered by a USB mobile battery as well for super long extended use.

 

Turning your room into a studio - in a minute

Connect to a PC using USB Audio interface mode, and DR-X becomes a tool for voiceover work, live streaming, podcasting and songwriting with studio-quality audio.
Built-in microphones work as USB microphones without complicated driver installs.

 

Upgrade your movie

Auto tone function provides easy-adjustments for on-site movie editing, ideal for DSLR filmmaking. The internal slate tone generator produces various tones for easy track making and recognition. Please use the dedicated accessory kit (AK-DR11C) for connecting.

 

Back up your transcription work: record and play with one unit

Writing down what you hear - easier said than done, but it is actually easy with DR-X. In addition to its capability to capture crisp voice recording, DR-X can help you with its Jump back function, variable Speed function and equalizer preset for human voice.

 

Never miss the timing

Auto recording function can detect the sound input signal level and automatically start recording. Also, Pre-recording function with up to 2 seconds pre-record provides fail-safe protection even when you are a bit late to hit the record button.

 

Still safe if it is louder than you thought.

Peak Reduction works in rehearsal mode or in record. Even if the sound or performance is louder than the sound check you're safe. Combined with Auto level and Limiter for preventing distortion, you never have to worry.

No need to go through "take 2" all over again

If you don't like the last part of a phrase you just recorded with your guitar, or if you change your mind and want to rephrase narration, the "Overwrite mode" is exactly what you need. Overwrite mode allows punch-in recording from a desired point. It is destructive editing with one level of undo.

 

Nondestructive Overdubbing

The overdubbing function allows for Overdub Recording while playing a previously recorded file. This allows you to record other parts such as a guitar solo over a recording previously made such as at a rehearsal studio. Overdubbing creates a new file, leaving the original file unaffected, making it easy to re-record.

 


192 Hours. This is how long you can record CD-quality sound with one single microSDXC card.

DR-05X supports a microSDXC card, which can record longer with larger data capacity. If you record a stereo file at 44.1kHz/ 16bit CD quality, a128GB card holds 192 hours maximum. In MP3/ 320kbps mode, it can record up to 896 hours.

A neat TOY

As soon as it came out of the box i was dissapointed. Have had a lot of experience with TASCAM, reel to reel and digital field units but what I was holding is a cheapo Chinese plastic recorder. Having said that, the sound ability is a different story. Some amp noise on record but anything above the background noise floor comes out true to life so proximity effect in normal record is OK with the built in mics. The plastic cover over the MICROSD card slot might not last long with lots of opening and closing so transfer files using the micro B USB port. All in all, a basic atmos recorder

A good and compact machine

The reason I brought the Tascam recorder as I had one before it is a nice and compact and it is ideal for what I need it for,it is also good because I can record in wav music files which is the main reason I brought my last one.Also the price of it was very good also so I am glad I have a new one.

It comes with the recorder and batteries. To mount on your camera you would need a AK-DR11C kit.
