Designed to cater to the needs of DSLR audio for video recording, the DR-60DmkII 4-Channel Portable Recorder for DSLR from Tascam is the latest generation of their popular audio recording device. Capable of recording 4 channels of audio simultaneously in up to 24-bit/96 kHz WAV/BWF files, the DR-60DmkII boasts Tascam’s High Definition Discrete Architecture (HDDA) preamps and a Cirrus Logic analog-to-digital converter chip for accurate and pristine audio capture. It features 2 combination XLR/TRS microphone/line-level inputs with selectable phantom power, and a stereo 1/8″ microphone input, capable of handling high-output microphones and supplying plug-in power.
A built-in digital mixer gives you control over panning and level for each track, and allows you to insert a limiter or high-pass filter in addition to setting individual channel delay for distance adjustment. The DR-60DmkII gives you multiple output options as well. The dedicated camera out features adjustable level control to cater to DSLRs that lack input level control. The 1/8″ line output can be used to feed a mixer or secondary recorder, while your monitoring is handled by a dedicated 1/8″ headphone jack.
The device records to SD and SDHC cards and is powered by 4 AA batteries, or an optional battery pack or AC adapter. A 2.5mm remote control input allows you to integrate an optional remote or footswitch control.
