TASCAM DR-05 Digital Recorder
The DR-05 is a versatile digital recorder suitable for musicians and non-musicians alike. A full suite of recording features are at your fingertips with an easy to use interface that makes operation of the device pretty simple. The two highly sensitive stereo condenser omni-directional microphones are capable of recording up to 125 db of sound with clarity to pick up multiple vocal sources and ambient sounds.
A self-timer recording feature can delay audio pickup for up to 10 seconds after you push the button to give your subjects a little extra time to be ready to speak. The Peak Reduction feature minimizes distortion by automatically setting your levels based on audio input with a built-in sound limiting filter that keeps you from recording too hot.
Playback features are plentiful and each one let’s you conveniently adjust the settings of your recorded files. Variable speed playback lets you slow or increase recorded file without changing the pitch of your content. You can also edit files or even loop and repeat a portion of the track which is good for transcribing content. Storage size is comparable to the other choices on our list with 2 GB of included storage and microSD slot capable of up to 64.
