OVERVIEW

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

TASCAM' 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' 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!

Great recorder for band practice

By ivecadit

from Cincinnati, OH

Comments about TASCAM DR-07mkII Handheld Digital Recorder:

This is an easy to use, great recorder for bands. I only get together with my group once a week, so we can run through new songs, record them quickly with excellent sound quality, then I can practice to it at home so we're not "re-learning" our material the next week. A smart choice for all musicians!

Comments about TASCAM DR-07mkII Handheld Digital Recorder:

I am a guitar player. This thing is great. I bought it because of its ability to 1) Overdub 2) Playback/Loop and 3) Playback at slower speeds, and 4) It had a built in speaker. The screen is not initially all that intuitive - you will need to refer to the book but once you do you will be up and running quickly. The speaker is not great, but does allow you to hear the track sufficiently to navigate around the files. Interfaces with my computer with no problems. Other users mentioned difficulty in importing from Itunes. I was able to get songs from my ipod to the Tascam by putting a cord from the headphone jack on my ipod to the line in of the tascam. This worked great for figuring out bits of songs (guitar lead). The quality of the recordings when played through headphones or the computyer is outstanding. Other users mentioned difficulty in using it to record because of the inability to use a metronome while recording. I found that by recording the rhythm track first, and listening to this in the headphones, I am able to overdub additional song parts with good results. Battery life seems to be pretty fair, and you can always power it up through the USB input. I recommend this product.

great bang for the buck

By Anthony Bero

from michigan

Comments about TASCAM DR-07mkII Handheld Digital Recorder:

this is almost as essential at rehearsals as my instruments. my band can get kind of loud and it records well without distortion. i've used it in rehearsals with my community theatre and it does a pretty good job of recording distant voices that aren't using microphones without making the pit band sound too loud. the best part is that i don't have to fart around with a bunch of controls to make it sound decent. that being said, don't expect it to sound like you just came out of abbey road. it's easy to use & well worth the money. good battery life, too. if i had a fire, i would buy it again.

    Comments about TASCAM DR-07mkII Handheld Digital Recorder:

    I bought this to catch ideas at home before the goldfish memory struck. The down side for me is that i play mostly unplugged acoustic and the lowest reduction setting for recording is -6db (w/ a max of -48db), that may be great for setting close to your amp, but to even hear the recording on the lowest reduction setting i must set the recorder VERY close to my guitar (like 6"). I am happy w/ the product, though i would have shopped around more if i had known it was made for extreme db recording. I have yet to record a live show, but i think this machine will shine in that setting.

    Awesome Portable Recorder

    By Seth L'Hote

    from Michigan

    Comments about TASCAM DR-07mkII Handheld Digital Recorder:

    This was a great purchase. It records well, without having to do too much tinkering. It wasn't outrageously expensive either.
    This recorder has a bunch of functions to help adjust the sound. Even though right out of the box sounded good, you can play with it to make it sound even better.
    Tried recording my drum set with the dr-03 and it just didn't cut it, the recording was way too choppy and distorted. But I pulled the dr-07mk2 out of the box and hit record and it sounded fine just like it was. I even set the recorder practically right next to me and it still recorded just fine, no distortion!!!
    For the price this is a great portable recorder. Easy to use and the battery life isn't too bad. Records everything awesome, picks up the noise you want it to, when you want it to.

    First Use of my new DR-07MKII

    By Robert Edwards

    from USA

    Comments about TASCAM DR-07mkII Handheld Digital Recorder:

    I believe I covered this topic, as well, in my comments on 'features'.
    This is my first reaction. to the TASCAM DR-07MKII. About any product I use regularly I most often find my understanding, therefor my appreciation, increased over time. That said:

    The device produces a faithful recording, free of unwanted noise. It is ridiculously easy to handle and 'set up'. It fills the need I envisioned, and offers the possibility of more advanced uses I had not anticipated. I used it, more or less successfully, to record a live performance of an instrumental combo by setting it on a chair and hitting 'record'.

    The difficulty I encountered came in 1) learning to understand how to properly adjust record-levels manually (the mid-point theory I intuited did not work as well as I would have liked) and
    2) understanding the tightly written, complex-seeming instructions from the manual for almost any operation.

    Specifically, the manual seems to assume the opportunity to do a 'test' level-adjustment. It was a live performance - I had no such test opportunity and lacked earphones and had not learned how to monitor the recording (e.g., visually - those tightly written, complex instructions again).

    It is, as stated, my belief that I will, eventually, manage to learn how to do what I wish - it is always a learning curve. The machine seems designed to perform well for a person who can learn to use it. The combination (salubrious) of compactness with great range and scope of functionality is, at once, its' principal outstanding feature and its' most frustrating impediment to first use.

      For the first year, this was an awesome recorder. However, now I can hear a high pitched squealing sound in the background all ALL my recordings. It sounds like a tape being fast forwarded. I've tried to contact Tascam but it's been days and I haven't received a response. I can no longer use it to record music because of the interference. I'm about to replace the recorder unless I can get a solution to the nuisance!

        I use this recorder to record interviews with bands in my local area. The sound quality is great in XY and AB positions. The Line in feature for a mic gives this unit an awesome capability to hook up lapel mics to it. I use this in conjunction with a portable camcorder mixer, a couple of spliters, and up to 8 condenser lapel mics. Great audio quality for the money. I don's see the need to jump up to a more expensive model, as this thing has all the features I need.

        Comments about TASCAM DR-07mkII Handheld Digital Recorder:

        This is my 1st recorder so being able to make great live rehersal recordings right out of the box is great. It takes little bit to get used to all the info displayed on the little screen, but with some experimentation with setting the levels and placement I'm very happy with it. I've been using it on the 44.1 / 256k mp3 settings and you can get over 20hrs on the included SD Card. The battery life has been great, and uploading to the computer is a snap.
        Haven't experimented much with them
        It's plastic but feels decnently built and the buttons have a postive tactile feel

          Comments about TASCAM DR-07mkII Handheld Digital Recorder:

          I have a studio at home so I am used to working with good mics, pre-amps, etc. I got it for traveling around the world, recording sounds (monks, bands, market music, songs I'm writing)and was between this and the Zoom H2. I chose this simply because it seemed easier to be handheld where the H2 it seemed you'd want to set it down on a table or hold it awkwardly when recording something live.

          For the price it's a good deal. I didn't want something expensive that I would be bummed if it got stolen. So far I've recorded some piano with it and it is actually really clear but lacking in bass frequency. It records in WAV files though so that might be something I can fix by eqing in my DAW.

          The construction is plastic so it seems like it could get damaged but I haven't put it through the ringer yet. Lighter than I was expecting even with the batteries in it. I haven't used it long enough to know how the battery life is.

          Purchase was a big mistake

          Comments about TASCAM DR-07mkII Handheld Digital Recorder:

          I would not purchase this item again, and am hoping to get some type of credit or refund from Tascam. Be careful purchasing this item that it will work for the purpose you intend.
          The DR-07II unit has a lot of features, but some are difficult to access and learn how to use. But that pales in comparison to the bigger problem, see next entry . . .
          I am using this unit to record live performance direct from a mixer. The level sent by the mixer to the tape out is relative to the overall level set on the mixer, it cannot be controlled independently, and must be set to an appropriate level for live performance When recording direct to the Tascam unit in this way, there is no way to reduce the input level on the unit sufficiently to avoid distortion! Vocal peaks in performance create a TERRIBLE DISTORTION in the recording. Even setting the Tascam to ZERO for manual level is not low enough.... There are settings for PEAK REDUCTION, ,AUTO LEVEL, AND LIMITER but none of them actually do anything much to control this problem. . . the only response given to me by Tascam support is to turn down the amp. WHAT?? This is completely unacceptable.
          A Marantz unit I owned previously had no problem at all handling these peak levels. This unit does not do as was advertised and has proven to be a complete waste of money on my part. If you're using this only with built in mics, it's probably OK... And for those parts of the performance where peak levels don't come into play, the unit sounds pretty good... BUT . . .

          Read the manual, it's important in order to understand all the great features of this recorder. I really like the design and ease of use.
          All the features that I need in a handsome lightweight package. If I could make but one suggestion to TASCAM it would be to offer a case for this recorder. I don't want it to get scratched up or damaged as I travel around with it. I went ahead and made my own slip-case out of headliner material and vinyl but would have preferred to have a professionally made case for it.
          Superb recordings. I can't believe how good this thing sounds.
          Great value! I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better deal.

          I like the recorder a lot. For the price one of the best. I'm using it for field recording and sound design. Overall real good product. The microphones are really sensitive in a good way. I really like you can record close or wide (ambient).

          My only complaints are that it should come with more accessories for mounting and holding. Because of the plastic build, you get a lot of surface noise picked up the by the microphones.

          I had to buy a holder mount with a soft grip to avoid the surface noise.

            OK a portable recorder to record gigs. I didn't have high hopes. Figured like a cassette recorder. I was wrong. Man, I put it in the sweet spot by the monitors, and I sync the sound with the camcorder footage since camcorder mic sound is horrible. I was blown away. It had the quality of the live albums that you buy from the big time bands you love. You cannot beat paying this price and getting near-CD quality sound for your videos. And the moveable mics make a huge difference in getting the best treble response. And no room noise...just get it, you'll see what I'm talking about. And it's Tascam. Always had amazing greatness from them.

            The device made pretty good recordings. I had trouble figuring out how to turn on autorecord, as it is shown on the record settings menu, but cannot be turned on or off from there. You have to put the device into record standby mode, and use the "quick" key to get to the menu that turns autorecord on and off. Also, the machine began limiting its recordings to 4 minutes, and I don't know why, because there was plenty of space left on the 2GB chip that came with it. It behaved normally again after I erased all files on the chip and started again. However, I have tried some voice recordings at home, and it seems to give good recordings, which can be conveniently saved or erased.

              I bought mine last year and it is my faithful companion. I have a home studio, however I do not always want to go down there to record a sudden inspiration (too many things to turn on). So, I grab this little thing and record the acoustic guitar track. Then I check it out using headphones and if I like it I transfer it to the computer and email it to work so I can listen to it several times in order to start evaluating how to finish the song.

              I also use it to record the final mix directly from my console (it saves disc space in my console) and then I use Audacity to give it the finishing touches.

              Definitely worth having one if you are like me who gets inspirations without warning.
