TASCAM's award winning DR-60D is the new audio recording solution for on-set filmmakers and videographers using DSLR's. For years, filmmakersProSound Network Best of Show have been trying different methods for recording audio - includng the use of bulky recorders designed for music and trying to transform the inferior audio technology built-into DSLR's. Now TASCAM has designed an answer that pros and amateurs alike have been waiting for.
|The DR-60D can record up to 4-tracks simultaneously allowing for various mic set-ups. Inputs 1/L and 2/R can be selected for monaural operation or stereo link operation. There are 3 outputs at one's disposal. A CAMERA OUT for reference track recording to the camera, LINE OUT to run to a mixer, and a Headphone Out for direct monitoring. (In 4CH mode, 1/L and 2/R inputs cannot be selected for monaural operation.)
The DR-60D supplies mixing functionality to all 4 tracks. Adjust PAN, Level, Limiters, HPF (40/80/120Hz) and Delay easily from the user-friendly set-up. TASCAM is well known for having the easiest to use controls in the market. The DR-60D is ready to use right out of the box with its external, non-menu-intensive controls.
|The DR-60D can be tailored further to one's recording needs with the various record modes. Choose between:
MONO/DUAL MONO mode：These modes are ideal for single source shootingSTEREO/DUAL STEREO mode：These modes are ideal for shooting with a stereo or mid-side microphone
4CH mode：This mode is ideal for all-around movie shooting. For example, you can record two sources separately plus one stereo microphone all simultaneously.
DUAL MONO and DUAL STEREO mode automatically provide a back-up safety track in case the initial levels where set too high and clips/peaks were encountered. The safety track can be set to record from -6dB to -12dB lower than the initial take.
|Every aspect of the DR-60D is designed specifically for DSLR Audio for Video Recording. The keys of the unit are designed specifically for quiet operation to eliminate handling noise. The Slate feature is designed to mark tracks easily while in production. The input and output layout is designed for versatile use. Whether the device is used under a camera, on a rig or strapped around a solitary sound engineer, TASCAM's DR-60D will meet all on-site audio production needs.|
Convenient Features Ideal for DSLR Shooting
|The CAMERA OUT connector outputs the sound mixed internally on the DR-60D. This output is equipped with an adjustable level control dial due to the lack of input level control on most DSLR's. This ensures a quality reference track is recorded onto your camera. Everything being recorded to the SD card can be sent to the camera - including slate tones - to make sync easier.|
|The internal slate tone generator produces various tones for easy track making and recognition. Slate tones can be generated from 2 operation modes;
Automatic：OFF/HEAD(rec start)/HEAD+TAIL(rec start and end) (You can select duration of the slate tone: 0.5/1/2/3 sec)
Manual：Push the SLATE button for tone. (In HOLD, the SLATE button is disabled for mistake prevention.)
|The DR-60D can be placed between a DSLR Camera and a tripod, or mounted to a rig easily. In addition, the bracket of the top panel can be removed when you wish to attach the DR-60D to stabilizers.|
This unit has a REMOTE jack for connecting a TASCAM RC-3F footswitch-type remote control or TASCAM RC-10 wired remote control (both sold separetely) that can be used to operate the unit.
