      Capture song ideas before they float away, or get all the important meeting notes recorded as well.

      TASCAM’s DR-07mkII improves on one of their best-selling portable recorders ever with adjustable microphones, clear sound quality, and a great new design. The stereo recorder features a pair of adjustable condenser microphones. The built-in cardioid pattern mics can be moved from an XY position, for tight imaging, to an AB position, for a wider ambient sound. You choose the best sound depending on the source and environment.

      Superior Sound Quality
      The sound of the DR-07mkII reflects over 30 years of TASCAM’s recording experience. A separate power supply for the codec enables the full capabilities of the A/D and D/A converter, and separate analog & digital circuit boards and low impedance circuit design reduce noise in the design. The DR-07mkII records to microSD or microSDHC media, recording in MP3 or WAV (BWF) file format at up to 96kHz/24-bit resolution.

      The 1/8" mic/line input allows you to plug in your own microphones and can supply plug-in power for mics that need it. The Level Align function prevents uneven volume levels during playback through the 1/8” headphone output or built-in speaker. Variable-Speed Audition–which changes playback speed without affecting pitch–and looping are also available during playback for transcription or learning new music. 17.5 hours of longer battery life at 44.1kHz/16-bit, WAV (BWF) is long enough for any recording situation.

      Advanced Recording Features

      Sharing some features with the new DR-05, the DR-07mkII makes recording simple enough for any musician. The Peak reduction function sets the optimum recording level even in recording to avoid the over level. Quick Menu selects commonly used parameters in playback or record like auto level setting or limiting, while deeper settings are available through a full-featured setup menu.

      Some DR-07mkII features that aren’t found on the DR-05 include Overdub mode, which records over your previous take but keeps a copy of the original. The portable recorder also includes Auto Record and Auto Mark settings for hands-off operation. A reverb effect is also provided to give your recordings that mastered polish.

      I have really put this unit thru the mill. The on-board mics are more than good. Beware that if you are recording live music you may want to use the menu and find the minus Bass EQ. I've found this feature to be handy when using the mics and also receiving signals from an external mixing board. Unless you are in a recording studio, the on-board mics seem to pick up a "boominess" from room acoustics. I found my greatest success with a headphone jack out from my mixing board connected to the line-in jack of the MKII. The fact that Tascam publishes their owner's manual online for free played a huge part in my decision to purchase. This unit is very user friendly. Don't be afraid of 100 and some pages of instructions. You can record right out of the box with the "quick start" feature in the first few pages. I have laid down several tracks including drum, lead guitar, vocals and acoustic guitar using a Jam Man looper and running it through my board. The output of the MKII is clean and every nuance is captured. The big surprise came when coupling the MKII to my computer. Three key strokes and you are transporting music from the MKII to the computer music file where it can be burned to a CD with a couple more strokes.One slick feature is that when you name your tracks, the track names automatically appear on the MKII as well as the computer. I feel that Tascam has really taken a user-friendly concept to the max with this unit and with MF's 45 day trial, you'll learn to love this thing.Buy the MKII. You won't be disappointed.
      The size and the menu possibilities make this unit easy to navigate through any recording options that you may find necessary for a quality outcome. The on-board mics are very handy but the built-in speaker only tells you that you have recorded something. It's not very loud. If you want to hear it after years of ringing music in your ears, you should attach MKII to a live monitor system.
      Let's face it ..every thing that is not the space shuttle is made of plastic . The MKII seems to be well constructed, and the input's and push keys are well built.
      I have owned other brands (zoom, Galaxy) the MKII blows them away, what you get for what you pay is well worth the money. Don't tell TASCAM or MF, they could get more!

      I chose this over similar-priced units because of the moveable mic pair - I like being able to switch between XY and AB. The mics are decent quality, and capture sound with good detail. However, switching between mic configurations isn't automatic, and throws up a weird user prompt that isn't entirely intuitive. The same can be said for navigating the file system - it isn't intuitive, and takes a lot of button pushing to delete a file. The construction is cheap plastic, didn't feel nearly as solid as the Olympus I had that got stolen. And seriously Tascam, throw in a case!

        Comments about TASCAM DR-07mkII Handheld Digital Recorder:

        Great tool for songwriting. Records ideas quick and easy. Excellent sound. Easy to use. Intuitive interface. I would highly recommend reading the manual, as there are so many extras available below the easy-to-use surface features. Connects and interacts easily with both Apple and PC computers. One of my favorite features is the reverb option. Several types of reverbs are available. Microphones are of excellent quality for the money and are adjustable. Mounts nicely on a camera tripod. All in all, a classic digital recorder from Tascam.

          Comments about TASCAM DR-07mkII Handheld Digital Recorder:

          Works great for making simple/quick recordings of riffs or jam sessions to listen back to for ideas and what not. A lot of reviews talk about it being cheap/lightweight like a toy. Well, everything is plastic and solid state these days...so, deal with it. I've dropped it twice from hip height so far and no problems yet. Be careful with it, duh! Phones and guitars will break too.

          Bottom line, Simple to start a new recording. Simple to playback recordings. Simple to plug into your computer and upload to Itunes or wherever....its MP3 as soon as you push Record! A multit track will make you master everything and bounce it over or whatever just to get a quick recording onto your ipod.

          Comments about TASCAM DR-07mkII Handheld Digital Recorder:

          Set on a tripod and adjusted for input level, the DR-07 MKII does an excellent job of recording quality audio whether soft or loud. Captured Audio is superior to what a smart phone or compact video recorder can pick up and therefore it works well in parallel. Also since audio files can be exported to home recording software, they can be further edited and enhanced (and later added to video). Nice for remote locations too like recording your acoustic guitar on your boat etc...

                    I got this recorder to be able to give it to a sound guy at a show and have him easily record the house mix directly from the board. Unfortunately this recorder does not allow you to send a professional line level signal into the recorder, as even with the gain completely down the signal is still highly overdriven.

                    As far as using this for simple recording of rehearsals and the like it works pretty well and the audio quality is good, so I guess that is what I will be using it for and not for the purpose I originally had planned.

                    The sound quality if the recording is simply amazing. After recording an acoustic jam session, I played the music the my home stereo and was able to hear all of the instruments clearly and in stereo. It doesn't stand upright on its own very well, so I had to cut a hole in the styro foam in order to make it stand up. It is very light weight and made if plastic. I'm afraid if it gets dropped once, that'd be all she wrote. So need to be careful with this one.

                      Comments about TASCAM DR-07mkII Handheld Digital Recorder:

                      Easy to use, works great for sampling found sounds for use in songs or as a basis for Iris synth patches, and is very versatile. Would work great for paranormal EVP work, as well.

                      Be warned that a 32GB microSDHC will take a long time to full format (hours); this is normal, let it run.
