Product Description

The DR-07MKII is a portable, high-quality stereo recorder capturing audio at high resolution up to 96 kHz/24 bit to microSD or microSDHC media. A pair of cardioid condenser microphones handles high sound pressure levels and can be set up in AB or XY orientation for a wide stereo field or extra-clear reproduction with reduced phase displacement between both channels. Users can also use their own microphone or line-level source through the mini-jack stereo input which includes plug-in power for microphones that need it. The DR-07MKII is quick and easy to use with one thumb. Operations like recording, adjusting levels, deleting bad takes and adding marks are only a button press away. Other features like variable speed audition, limiting, low-cut filtering, chromatic tuner and others more can be chosen from the menu. Users may apply one out of six reverb effects to the input or output signal, and an Overdub feature allows recordings to be added to existing audio files. The Peak Reduction feature automatically reduces the level to prevent accidental distortion. It works in rehearsal mode or in record and can be combined with the built-in limiter. There is also a Level Align function that allows to smooth out any sudden volume jumps during playback, and a built-in speaker is provided for quick check-back. Internally, the unit?s digital and analogue circuit boards are built separately to increase noise performance, with a low-impedance design to further decrease hiss. A separate supply voltage is used for the A/D and D/A converter for even better audio performance. The result is clean sound quality with high signal-to-noise ratio, very little distortion and wide frequency response. Two AA batteries can power the recorder for more than 17 hours, even while recording at CD quality. Operation by USB bus power or an optional AC adapter is also possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perspective from a DSLR video shooter 26 Dec 2012
By M. Bhangal TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
I bought my DRO7 to add sound to my DSLR videos. For anyone thinking about doing the same, I've included the full thought process that resulted in my selecting the DR07 Mk 2 over the other competing choices (Zoom H1, Tascam DR05, Zoom H4n/TascamDR40).

**Why you need a separate sound recorder**

If you are shooting DSLR video, the weakest link in your production is the sound. It doesn't matter that (with good glass and variable ND filter fitted) your DSLR camera can do full HD better than most pro equipment from 5 years ago. If your sound is awful, your whole production looks cheap and amateurish. The trouble is that most DSLR's inbuilt microphone gives barely better sound quality than the microphone on a cell phone.

**Tascam DR07 vs Zoom H1**

The first deciding factor is where you are going to fix your microphone: on-body, in-hand or where the action is. This is the deciding factor on choosing the Zoom H1 or a Tascam DR05/DR07. The H1 Is light enough to fit on the camera body, whereas all of the Tascams are too big and bulky. If you are going on-camera, then your only choice is Zoom H1 because the Tascams are too big.

All the Tascams have a ridged body, meaning that if you grip one firmly with your fingers then, with a bit of practice, you don't hear any creaks or slides from your hand. Not so with the Zoom H1 - its lightness comes via a cheap and thin plastic body which creaks terribly if you hold it firmly, so it doesn't work for in-hand.

The best place to put a mic *by far* if you want quality sound is on a boom so you can follow your actors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for home recording 31 May 2012
Verified Purchase
I bought this recorder to record myself practicing my Northumbrian Smallpipes so that I could hear how well I'm playing. With only a small amount of fiddling to get the right levels set, I found that I could record myself and get pretty decent results ([...] if you really care!). Much more satisfactory than using the mic attached to my computer, and handily portable for those times when my wife encourages me to practice my pipes in the garage.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tascam DR07 Mk2 25 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase
The recording sound quality of the Tascam DR-07 Mk2 is remarkably good indoors. However, prospective purchasers of this product need to be aware that any attempt at 'outside broadcast' use is severely limited. The integral microphones are extremely sensitive to the slightest wind interference and my purchase of a hairy "wind jammer" from another source has proved to be a total waste of money. Every outdoor recording has been ruined by the slightest breeze. After 40 years of outside recording using properly wind-protected external microphones feeding a three-head portable casette deck, the results obtained from my Tascam DR-07 have been very disappointing.

I must reiterate that the recording quality of the built-in stereo microphones on the Tascam DR-07 is nothing less than amazing until the product is used outdoors.

I can only suggest that all Tascam digital recorders should be sold with an adequate protective windshield included in the purchase package.

5.0 out of 5 stars Studio grade HD quality sound!! 19 July 2012
By James
Verified Purchase
The Tascam DR-07mkII records unbelievable quality. I was pleasantly surprised. Pretty straight forward to use, but you need to briefly read the instructions. It comes with 2GB micro SD (which is ample recording space), USB cable and 2 AA batteries.

I found making room/meeting recordings I needed to reduce the headphones volume and increase the record levels (using skip bttns >>), otherwise the volume of the recordings were too low when played on your computer. Works fine with Mac OS, and you don't need a micro SD card reader.

Its true that you can't really hold the device when recording as the mics are very sensitive, and picks up sound through the casing. However the Hama Table-Top Tripod with Removable Telescopic Tube was the perfect partner - even though its 13 it's well worth it; the rubber feet and soft grip handle made it possible to make recordings while holding it, although still best on the tripod. I was amazed that I could record the ambient noise of a room, clocks ticking, and voices as clear as listening to them live. That chap who only gave it 2 stars to record his lectures should try this tripod. The Tascam's mics are sensitive enough to record from a distance.

I've not tried it outdoors, but a windjammer is essential. For close-up voice recordings (even indoors) a foam windshield is needed to reduce blow noises (you know what I mean!).

The DR-07 is much better than my Samson USB mic, the joy is that I don't need to drag cables around, and the sensitivity will record anything in a room.

If you are toying with the idea of getting this Tascam - go for it, its a brilliant piece of kit for the money.

Essential accessories:
Hama Table-top tripod with telescopic handle (product number - B000V7UAJS)
Windjammers/foam windshield

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive all-rounder 6 July 2012
Verified Purchase
I bought this recorder principally for radio interview work. Previously I had been using a Zoom H2 which was fine, but I occasionally had some card corruption issues and the microphone arrangements, although versatile, were not always condusive to straight one-to-one interviews in noisy conditions. Also the display on the Zoom H2 is not really very clear.

So I turned to the Tascam and I have not been disappointed. It's smaller, but the display is clear and you can adjust the amount of time the backlight is on display. You soon learn to grip it firmly when using it 'hand-held'. Any movement of the fingers is picked up by the mics. However, to be fair this is common in all devices of this type. I feel that the microphones are a bit 'exposed'. A foam wind-muff would not have added much to the price and afforded a little protection. I purchased a suitable one for 4 from a High street retailer. Unfortunately the mic can only be used in the 'crossed' position using this. More versatile 'dead cat' wind muffs are available on the internet specifically for this device. There is no need to pay the outrageous price of a Tascam brand one.

My first outing was to a local agricultural show where I recorded a school 'dixie' band playing in the open air. When I played this back through the hi-fi I was astounded by the result (MP3 320kps). It was a 'studio-like' performance. Far better than I imagined.
Can't wait to try some other live performances. As an interview mic, it's fine. I agree the speaker output is rather low, but it is sufficient to confirm that you have a recording. Ok using earphones.

Amongst other things I like is the intuative menu set-up. Easy to remember and work your way through.
