8-track portable recorder
The Tascam DR-680 brings multi-channel portable recording within reach of any musician for polished live, location and surround recordings. Up to eight tracks can be recorded to solid-state SD card media at 96kHz/24-bit broadcast WAV quality. Six mic inputs provide phantom power and 60dB of gain for great-sounding recordings with condenser microphones. Record the six microphones along with a digital S/PDIF source for 8-track recording. Inputs can be monitored using a built-in mixer with level and pan controls for each input. The stereo mixdown can be recorded along with the six mics for quick stereo playback of the event. There’s even a built-in speaker to check recordings without headphones.
