Tascam DR-60DmkII 4-Channel Portable Recorder for DSLR Filmmakers

Tascam's DR-60DmkII, an update of the award-winning DR-60D, is the audio recording solution for on-set filmmakers and videographers. The streamlined design fits perfectly under a DSLR camera, without relying on bulky recorders or the limited audio quality of the camera’s microphone. The DR-60DmkII is the next generation of 4-track solid-state recording, based on Tascam’s decades of recording innovation. The upgraded HDDA microphone preamps provide up to 64dB of gain, capturing every nuance of a performance. Up to four channels at a time can be recorded to the internal SD Card, at up to 96kHz/24-bit WAV file resolution. Two of the mic inputs utilize locking XLR connectors with 48V phantom power, the other two use a 1/8-inch stereo connector for wireless and lavaliere microphones.

High-Quality HDDA Mic Preamps

High-quality mic preamps are a necessity for high-grade sound. The DR-60D's HDDA mic preamplifiers (High Definition Discrete Architecture) employ discrete circuitry and premium parts, approved after months of evaluation testing. The HDDA s circuit achieves an incredibly high EIN (-120dBu) for the lowest noise level available. The DR-60DmkII mic preamps have been upgraded for up to 64dB of gain with new XLR input jacks for greater cable compatibility. a CIRRUS LOGIC's AD converter (used also on the DR-40 portable recorder) is used to ensure detailed recording from any input signal. 

Variety of Inputs/Outputs with Internal Mixing

The DR-60DmkII can record up to 4-tracks simultaneously, allowing multiple microphones to be used while filming. Inputs 1/L and 2/R can be selected for mono or stereo link operation. Three sets of stereo outputs are provided. A Camera Out sends a reference track recording to the camera. The Line Out can feed a mixer or recorder. Finally, a powerful Headphone Out is available for direct monitoring. Each of these outputs has its level control, and the camera out can be attenuated to the microphone level without the need for an attenuating cable. 

Internal Digital Mixer

The DR-60DmkII has an internal digital mixer for all 4 tracks. Adjust pan and level, add a Limiter or Hi-pass Filter (40/80/120Hz), and set individual channel Delay from the user-friendly set-up. The DR-60DmkII is ready to use right out of the box with its external, non-menu-intensive controls.

Mono/Dual Mono Mode

Ideal for single source microphones, like using a shotgun together with a clip-on lavaliere microphone.

Stereo/Dual Stereo Mode

These modes are ideal for shooting with a stereo or mid-side microphone. A Mid-Side Decoder is built-in and can be added either during monitoring or before recording

4-Channel Mode

This 4-channel mode records all four microphone inputs to their own tracks. 

Dual Mono and Dual Stereo Mode

Records a back-up safety track in case levels are set too high and clipping occurs. The safety track can be set to record from -6dB to -12dB below the initial take. If an actor suddenly screams a line, you have a back-up recording that isn’t distorted

Custom-Designed for DSLR Shooters

Every aspect of the DR-60DmkII 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, or strapped around a solitary sound engineer, Tascam's DR-60D will meet all on-site audio production needs.
