The DR-60D MKII is a compact 4-track audio recorder for dedicated use
with a digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) or digital single-lens
mirrorless (DSLM) camera as a video system. It can be mounted directly
to the camera and offers various audio inputs and outputs to allow the
recording of high-resolution audio material in parallel to, but
separated from the camera and its video data.
The recorder features Tascam original HDDA microphone preamps
which are known for high S/N ratio, low input-referred noise and low
distortion. Recordings can be made at 44.1/48/96 kHz, 16/24-bit in WAV
or BWF format. In addition to ordinary stereo recording, it is possible
to record up to four channels simultaneously which can then be mixed
down to a stereo signal. Recording levels can be adjusted independently
for inputs 1, 2 and 3–4 and the Dual Recording function allows two files
to be recorded in parallel at different levels.
The DR-60D MKII can output high-quality audio to a DSLR/DSLM
camera to be recorded there as a reference track, and a camera input
enables convenient monitoring of audio sent from a DSLR camera. Mid-side
decoding, slate tone functions (automatic/manual), selectable time
delay and other functions for convenient recording are also available.
