Tascam DR-05 Portable Handheld Digital Recorder


The Tascam DR-05 is an ultra-compact digital recorder, with pristine stereo sound quality and a small footprint that fits in the palm of your hand. Use the built-in omnidirectional microphones for point-and-shoot recording, or connect your own microphone to the stereo 1/8" input and record it all in 24-bit/96kHz studio quality to microSD or microSDHC cards. Easy to understand and maneuver through the menus, you can use a single thumb to engage a limiter to prevent overs, a low-cut filter to get rid of the rumble or wind noise in field recordings, adjust levels, nix bad takes and more. The Peak Reduction feature automatically optimizes your recording level, and when paired with the limiter you'll never clip the DR-05 and ruin an otherwise great recording.

    this thing is amazing! definitely a couple quirks with it stopping recording when it's silent and starting a new track.. but amazing sound quality. extremely simple and easy to use.

    The output on the Line out is terrible also the built in speaker is barely audible. The sensitivity on the mic isn't so great but do-able in certain situations. Transfer your audio files to PC for better audio quality, even then its kinda meh. Buy something else, this just isn't that great.
