    A Decent Audio Recorder for the Money

    As a self contained multimedia journalist, I wanted to step up from the limitations of the Zoom H1 for the audio slideshow and video projects I produce/create. I went with the Tascam DR-05 due to it's smallish size and additional capabilities.

    The audio quality of the built in stereo mics works well with capturing ambient audio and even for voice recording if using baffling to minimize any room echo.

    For using an external mic, I initially went with the Pearstone LMT-100 3.5mm to XLR adapter, but had issues with it. I then ordered the Comprehensive 3.5mm to XLR cable and found it to be of higher audio quality than the Pearstone cable.

    A serious issue I discovered is if you're going to use an external mic with the DR-05, you NEED to use a battery powered mic such as the AKG C-1000S, Rode M3 or NTG-2 (and similar mics) due to the noisy mic preamps. There's a fair amount of pre-amp line noise if used with dynamic mics like the Audio Technica AT8004 or Shure SM58 - both of which I tested and found to be of no use with this recorder.

    When I tested with a loaned AKG-C1000S from a colleague, the audio quality was flat out lovely (I ended up purchasing an AKG-C1000S as a result). I recommend this recorder/mic combination for NPR style voice recordings both in studio and in the field.

    Bottom line: This is a much better audio recorder compared to the Zoom H1 for the money IMO. The overall build and ease of use of the Tascam DR-05 is superior and as long as you understand its limitations for external mics options, you'll be happy with this unit.

    In at least 3 places in Tascam's website, they claim the DR-05 has a "line in", this is NOT the case, the only input jack can only accept a minuscule -20 dBV (nominal) input signal, way below the normal -10dBV output from a "recorder out" jack from a stereo or mixer and WAY< WAY below the +4 dBV output of a normal mixer standard output. It may be great recording from the built in mics or external mics (I don't know), but it really misses the mark for recording from other sources because of the lack of a line in (even though Tascam keeps saying it has one.) By the way, the new DR-07 mkII has no line level input either (but the old DR-07 did).

    Note: Below, I checked "experienced" - had there been a category between 'novice" and "experienced" I would have selected that, but I'm closer to experienced than novice.

      Comments about Tascam DR-05 Portable Handheld Digital Audio Recorder:

      The unit seems solid and well designed for dictation but it is not designed for stereo input recording. The only line in on this unit is a 1/8 inch mic jack. With the record levels at optimal it will give you decent results in mono but when you switch to stereo you will get a really poor result. I am not a pro so the best way for me to describe what I got is some sort of lo-fi effect. Bottom line is that I could not get it to record anything usable with the 1/8 inch mic input in stereo mode.

        This little gem works great for everything I have tried it on.... mount it to a light stand to record your band rehearsal sessions - yes, it really works AND the drummer is not all you hear...I use the Limiter function when live recording my band. Get the 'Filmmaking Kit' and use it for your back-up and even primary audio. I do all my mixing and sweeting inside my computer programs so the DR-05 version is what I use. Really one of the best investments I have made in a while.

          I used to use the first generation Zoom and couldn't deal with the very small display any longer.
          The DR-05 is easy to use and the battery life is fantastic and the display is reasonably large.
          The only thing that I wish I had was an input volume knob.

                I use it for birding. To record and play some bird songs that I don't recognize. So I can attract it and take pictures. If well configured it can record far far sounds. The speaker power don't help, so you'll have to use an external speaker.

                  Comments about Tascam DR-05 Portable Handheld Digital Audio Recorder:

                  I have been using the Tascam DR-40 for 3 years and the DR-05 for three months. I love the quality of sound from the internal mics on both machines. Rarely do I use external mics now. But I am beyond frustrated by the need to hit the record button twice to record: first for paused recording, second to actually record. In bright light, both recorders' record-indicater lights are nearly impossible to read: it can be nearly impossible to know if recording or paused (if record light is blinking, solid or at all lit). Of course, even using headphones, audio sounds the same. I've lost countless hours of material, conducted entire interviews on paused recording. Perhaps I've been spoiled by Marantz' field recorders, which have a separate button for pause and record, but when I hit "record," I would like to know I'm recording.

                  The second huge problem is that these Tascams are terribly feeble and sensitive to jarring while recording: entire files are lost if the machine is bumped or tips over on a table. I've lost interviews to a subject's hand gesture, bumping the recorder while held as a mic in my hand.

                  I haven't found a way to recover these files. Without end-of-track write-out, they're gone. Again, I hate to compare to my Marantz PMD660, because it's so much bigger and has no internal mic worth using. They are in kind of different categories--I can't carry my Marantz everywhere, the way I can these Tascams. But loss of files in both cases are very serious drawbacks and I believe design flaws: no amount of reasonable professionalism or compensation helps beyond a point. No matter how careful, the longer I use these machines, the more files and great tape I lose.

                      It works well recording with the microphone or a direct connection. However the small speaker is not very useful. Need to use earplugs to hear playback.

                        Bought this to record a recital literally one hour before it started. I was able to set it up pretty quickly and get a good recording out of it.

                              Amazingly great sound from the device. Microphone sensitivity is good but with an external directional mic it gets better. For the price it is really worth the investment.

                                I bought this Tascam (the cheapest one, $) because the next one in the line was twice the price, I believe. It really worked for me, it was just what I needed. I asked the guy that helped me in the store (he was really polite and helpful) to compare Tascam vs Zoom, and he told me that in the cheaper version he preferred Tascam, even though I liked better the position of the mics in the Zoom. I also bought a 8gb memory, which was cheap. It turned out very well, I recommend it.

                                I bought this recorder to use to capture all of the audio tracks of life that I can't get in my home studio. For instance, all the funny little things the kids do and say while we're out of the house, band practices/shows, the sounds of nature etc. to use in my productions. I really liked the thought of this recorder because of it's simplicity, limiting capabilities and price. I can spend a couple hundred or thousand dollars on top of the line mics and I have some pretty nice mic/preamp equipment (Neumann, Shure, Warm Audio, Focusrite etc) so I'm familiar with what great sounding audio sounds like and I can say that this recorder fits the bill for what I need it for. The sound is crisp and even, the limiting does not really distort the sound or create any unusual artifacts and it's simple to use, you just hold the power button for 2 seconds, it's now on, then hit record button twice and it's recording onto another new track. A nice feature for quickly grabbing a sound source in the moment. The only thing I'd like is for more line level inputs, though this can be had on one of the more expensive units. Transfer to your computer is simple, you can just plug in the provided usb and open the files on your computer without removing the sd card, so I can manage the device data at the same time I'm loading it to the computer to free up more room for new recordings. Highly suggest if you need something cheap and efficient. I don't see why I personally would need one of the loftier priced versions. I'd prefer to bring my recording set-up if I needed super pristine, studio grade audio recordings. The microphones on this unit are much better than I anticipated. The condenser mics capture the sound really really well at all volumes.

I like it because its small, light weight and versatile . Even I sounded good on it and I am not a professional voice guy and don't normally like the way I sound!
