2010-01-14 - TASCAM LAUNCHES DR-2D PORTABLE RECORDER

New model updates microphone, resolution and offers Dual Recording mode

Anaheim, CA - NAMM Booth #6491 (January 14, 2010): TASCAM has released the DR-2d, a Portable Digital Recorder that brings high-resolution recording to a compact, affordable package. It offers up to 96kHz/24-bit audio resolution, capturing WAV or MP3 files to SD Card media. The new stereo condenser microphone design has a 74dB signal to noise ratio for dynamic recordings. The Dual Recording feature prevents overload by recording a second track at lower level, ensuring that recordings won't be ruined by distortion.

Like the rest of TASCAM's best-selling portable recorders, the DR-2d offers Variable Speed Audition to slow down music without changing the pitch. A metronome and digital effects are also included, as well as an Overdub feature for sound-on-sound recording. The DR-2d is ideal for songwriters, performers, or home studio musicians who want their music to sound its best.
