Tascam DR-40X Red
The Tascam DR-40X in Red gives you a versatile 4-track handheld digital audio recorder that’s ideal for cinema, music, podcasting, and more! Boasting an easy to use and compact design, the DR-40X Red offers a professional feature set and a versatile array of I/O.
With Dual Neutrik XLR/TRS combo jacks, the DR-40X Red supports both mic level and +4dBu line-level. So you can connect either balanced microphones, or line-level from your mixer or FOH console. What’s more, the microphone preamp includes +48V phantom power as well as plenty of gain. So you’ll have no problems powering your condenser and electret type microphones. Alternatively, you can use the stereo built-in microphones for capturing the ambient sound around you.
Wide covering range:
Featuring stereo built-in condenser microphones, the DR-40X Red allows you to capture every detail from small whispers to sounds up to 125db SPL. They’re also adjustable and unidirectional so you can record in X-Y patterns for tight stereo imaging, or in an A-B pattern for a more ambient recording.
The layout of the DR-40X Red has also been revamped, so you can do everything easily with just one thumb. Whether you’re recording, adjusting levels, deleting bad takes, or adding markers, the function is just a button away.
Extended battery life
Powered by two AA batteries, the DR-40X offers ultra-long battery life. If you’re using the built-in microphones, you can record up to 17.5 hours with standard 2CH WAV 44.1kHz 16bit format. While you can also power the DR-40X by a USB mobile battery for even longer use!
Turning your room into a studio – in a minute.
Connect your DR-40X Red to your PC and turn your digital audio recorder into an audio interface. Allowing you to use the DR-40X for voiceover work, live streaming, and songwriting with studio-quality audio thanks to the fact the built-in microphones double as USB mics.
Four-track recording mode gives you several options to record
Not only does the DR-40X Red feature stereo channel and dual recording mode; the DR-40X also has 4CH Mode, allowing you to record two different feeds simultaneously. So you can record using the built-in microphones along with a pair of external mics such as close-up and ambient microphones. Or, record the built-in mics combined with a balanced line input from your mixer.
Safety track for unpredictable situation
When you’re filming video, its not unlikely to experience a sudden spike in volume during filming. With the DR-40X in dual-recording mode, you capture a copy of your audio takes at a lower level. Acting as a safety track in case of sudden distortion. On top of that, the auto-recording function can detect the sound input signal level and automatically begin recording. It also pre-records up to 2 seconds for fail-safe protection.
No need to go through “take 2” all over again
Say you’ve recorded a whole verse with your guitar and you don’t like the last part. The Overwrite mode allows you to punch in recording from an exact point.
Similarly, the overdubbing function on the DR-40X Red allows you to record over the top of previously recorded sounds with the touch of a button. This creates a new file, so your original will be unaffected and easy to re-record if you need to.
Up to 192 Hours Recording on a Single microSDXC Card
Finally, the Tascam DR-40X Red supports SDXC Cards. So you can record longer, with a larger data capacity. In fact, you can get up to 896 hour or 37 days worth of recording from a single card!
