The Marantz PMD661: Portable Digital Recording Made Easy

There are many options in the portable digital recorder market today, but there aren't too many choices that promise a solidly built device designed specifically for broadcast professionals. One such recorder is the Marantz PMD661, and it's packed with many useful features that may not be immediately apparent.

Multi-Track Field Recording Gets Affordable with the Tascam DR-680

In today's crowded field of portable digital audio recorders (Tascam alone has seven different models on the market), the new DR-680 has managed to carve out an impressive niche for itself. It's currently the most affordable battery-powered field recorder that's capable of recording six separate microphone inputs onto their own individual track. That's big news for anyone on a tight budget who's involved with producing reality television, live music recordings, or any job where numerous microphones need to be recorded discretely. There are other portable recorders on the market that can accomplish these tasks, but the closest competitor costs over three times as much. This machine has rewritten the rules of what is and what is not possible on a strict location audio budget.
