The Tascam DR-60D MKII Portable Recorder is a 4-track portable recorder/mixer designed for DSLR filmmakers. The streamlined design fits perfectly under a DSLR camera rig, without relying on bulky recorders or the limited audio quality of the camera’s microphone in.

The Tascam DR-60D MKII Portable Recorder, an update of the award winning DR-60D, is the audio recording solution for on-set filmmakers and videographers. The Tascam DR-60D MKII is the next generation of 4-track solid-state recording, based on TASCAM’s decades of recording innovation. The upgraded HDDA microphone preamps provide up to 64dB of gain, capturing every nuance of a performance. Up to four channels at a time can be recorded to the internal SD Card, at up to 96kHz/24-bit WAV file resolution. Two of the mic inputs utilize locking XLR connectors with 48V phantom power, the other two use an 1/8” stereo connector for wireless and lavaliere microphones.

A Camera Output sends the mic mix to the camera for later synchronization, and a Camera Input is provided for monitoring playback. An additional headphone out and line out assist the crew during filming. The Tascam DR-60D MKII is designed for low-noise operation, including soft touch buttons and dedicated gain controls. Multiple recording modes are available on the Tascam DR-60D MKII. Four-Channel Mode records all four microphone inputs. Dual Recording is an alternate setting, capturing a copy of your audio at a lower level for a distortion-free safety track. Menus and operation are well laid out, owing to decades of innovative recording design. Reach beyond the limited performance of your camera’s audio to capture the other half of your film. At a cost less than competing preamps, the TASCAM DR-60D MKII is the ultimate 4-track recorder designed for filmmakers, television, live events and web broadcast.

High-Quality HDDA Mic Preamps
High quality mic preamps are a necessity for high-grade sound. The Tascam DR-60D's HDDA mic preamplifiers (High Definition Discrete Architecture) employ discrete circuitry and premium parts, approved after months of evaluation testing. The HDDA s circuit achieves an incredibly high EIN (-120dBu) for the lowest noise level available. The DR-60DmkII mic preamps have been upgraded for up to 64dB of gain with new XLR input jacks for greater cable compatibility. A CIRRUS LOGIC's AD converter (used also on the DR-40 portable recorder) is used to ensure detailed recording from any input signal.

A Variety of Inputs and Outputs With Internal Mixing
The Tascam DR-60D MKII can record up to 4-tracks simultaneously, allowing multiple microphones to be used while filming. Inputs 1/L and 2/R can be selected for mono or stereo link operation. Three sets of stereo outputs are provided. A Camera Out sends a reference track recording to the camera. The Line Out can feed a mixer or recorder. Finally, a powerful Headphone Out is available for direct monitoring. Each of these outputs has its own level control, and the Camera Out can be attenuated to microphone level without the need for an attenuating cable. The Tascam DR-60D MKII has an internal digital mixer for all 4 tracks. Adjust pan and level, add a Limiter or Hipass Filter (40/80/120Hz), and set individual channel Delay from the user-friendly set-up. The Tascam DR-60D MKII is ready to use right out of the box with its external, non-menu-intensive controls.
