Tascam's new DR-07 is a digital handheld stereo recorder based on its larger DR-1 design.
The DR-07 records to SD cards in WAV or MP3 formats. Features include pitch and looping functions. The dual microphones are electret condensers.
A USB 2.0 port can facilitate downloading recorded files. A mic stand mount is in the base.
The DR-07 ships with a 2 GB card and a windscreen.
Also new for Tascam is an upgrade to the X-48 48-track digital audio workstation.
Version 1.10 includes a "fail-safe" recording mode. This enables the machine to save the file being used every five seconds as a safety measure. Another change enables a VGA monitor to replicate a meter bridge.
