Tascam DR-60DmkII 4-Input / 4-Track Multitrack Field Recorder

For filmmaking, television, and web broadcast applications, the Tascam DR-60DmkII multitrack field recorder is an ideal companion for your DSLR. Capture up to four tracks of high-resolution audio from external sources, route audio to and from your camera, and conveniently monitor through headphones. With strap-friendly handles, a tripod mounting socket, and a camera-mount screw attachment, the DR-60DmkII is compatible with a variety of setups and working styles.

Versatile powering methods and remote-control options make the DR-60DmkII ideal for location recording and extended video shoots. Its two balanced XLR-1/4" combo inputs handle mic- or line-level signals (even +4 dBu from high-end sound mixers) and can independently supply phantom power. A 3.5mm mic/line input with selectable plug-in power is provided for situations that require you to record a lavalier microphone or the output of a wireless receiver. Utilize modes such as stereo safety track recording, peak reduction, limiting, and auto level to achieve a clean, undistorted recording.

Dual XLR-1/4" Mic/Line Inputs with Independent Phantom Power

Dual locking XLR-1/4" TRS combo jacks support mic level and +4 dBu line level, allowing you to record external microphones or balanced outputs from a professional multichannel mixer. With individually switchable phantom power (24V or 48V) and up to 64 dB of gain, the low-noise HDDA (High Definition Discrete Architecture) mic preamps can serve a variety of microphones such as dynamic, ribbon, or condenser types.

3.5mm Mic/Line Input with Plug-In Power

For maximum intelligibility and optimal vocal tone, recordists often prefer to use lavalier microphones that can be attached to their subject's clothing. The DR-60DmkII's 3.5mm mini-jack input is designed for precisely that situation; clip a lav mic (available separately) to the talent, then plug it into the 3.5mm input on the DR-D60mkII. Knowing that many lav mics require a small amount of voltage called plug-in power, Tascam offers a selectable setting to supply plug-in power to the 3.5mm input. If you need to record the output of a wireless microphone receiver or an audio mixer, the 3.5mm input can accommodate it because it supports mono and stereo inputs, as well as line-level signals, and handles a maximum input level of +10 dBV.

3.5mm Camera, Line, and Headphone Outputs

The DR-60DmkII boasts three 3.5mm outputs for simultaneous hookup to your camera, a secondary recorder, and headphones. Each is designated for a specific type of level—mic, line, and headphone—and offers separate volume controls next to each jack for efficient management of levels. Plus, the side-panel 3.5mm camera input is ideal for simple monitoring of playback from your camera.

Supports SDHC Cards up to 32GB

To minimize size and maximize portability, the DR-60DmkII records directly to media cards (available separately). It supports SD and SDHC cards (up to 32GB capacity) for long recording times in standard or high resolution. With an 8GB card, the DR-60DmkII can record in stereo for over 13 hours at 16-bit / 44.1 kHz using the uncompressed, BWF-compliant WAV format.

Powered via AA Batteries, USB, or AC Adapter

Using four AA alkaline batteries (available separately), you can power the DR-60DmkII for up to 4.5 hours of stereo recording time at 16-bit / 44.1 kHz resolution. For long-duration sessions that require extended recording time, the DR-60DmkII may be powered via a USB connection to a computer, mobile battery, or optional BP-6AA battery pack, or through the Tascam PS-P515U AC adapter (available separately).

Ideal for Tripod- or Camera-Mounted Use

The DR-60DmkII's body was manufactured with rigid plastic for a durable and lightweight design. In addition to its light weight, the DR-60DmkII is only 5.25" wide, so it won't interfere with camera operation. All batteries can be replaced without removing the device from the camera or tripod/rig.

The DR-60DmkII can be placed between a DSLR camera and a tripod, or mounted to a cage or follow-focus rig. A tripod socket is on the bottom of the unit, and a removable tripod bracket is mounted on the top. Also, handles on the front left and right sides protect the screen, and permit the attachment of a shoulder belt.

Soft-Touch Controls

In the likely event that you need to press buttons while shooting, you don't need to worry about picking up clicks in the recording. The DR-60DmkII's soft-touch rubber keys are designed for quiet operation to eliminate handling noise.

Stereo Safety Track Recording

Filmmakers and videographers often experience sudden audio volume spikes during filming. An actor could suddenly scream, or a documentary subject could do almost anything. The DR-60DmkII has a dual-recording mode that captures a copy of your take (from a selectable mono or stereo input) at a lower level as a safety track in case of sudden distortion.

Built-In Level Modes and Signal Processing Enhance Audio Quality

Enhance the sonic impact of your audio with the DR-60DmkII's built-in level modes and signal processing. Engage automatic level control to increase or decrease the recording volume when the input sound is too quiet or loud, and switch on the limiter to compress the signal before it reaches the point of distortion. In rehearsal mode or while recording, the peak reduction function automatically reduces the input gain to a suitable level.

Mitigate wind noise and low-frequency rumble by selecting the low-cut filter, which can be set at 40, 80, or 120 Hz. Upon playback, treble, mid, and bass frequencies may be boosted or reduced for custom output tone.

Selectable Recording Functions

The DR-60DmkII offers several recording functions that simplify your workflow and save you from missing the beginning of a performance. Once enabled, the pre-record setting keeps the DR-60DmkII in standby mode, which allows it to capture up to two seconds of signal before you press the record button. The DR-60DmkII is also capable of recording in response to input signal; its auto-record function can begin recording at a user-selectable decibel threshold of -6, -12, -24, or -48. If you'll be recording yourself playing an instrument such as piano or drums, use the self-timer mode to initiate recording after 2 or 10 seconds.

Tone Generator for Synchronizing Files

An internal tone generator makes it easy to synchronize files recorded on the DR-60DmkII and your camera. When the DR-60DmkII is connected to a camera, the adjustable slate tone may be sent to the camera and recorded to the DR-60DmkII. The resulting tones can be used as guides when synchronizing the files in video-editing software. Generate slate tones automatically at the head (or head and tail) of each clip, or manually via the slate button.

Supports External Remote Control

Hand- or foot-operated remote control is possible via the RC-3F footswitch or RC-10 wired remote (both available separately); start/stop recording, make marks, increment tracks, and more without having to touch the DR-60DmkII.

Rode NTG2 Shotgun Microphone

Capture quality sound indoors or outside for your next indie film, TV shoot, or documentary project with the Rode NTG2 shotgun microphone. With low handling noise, the ability to endure loud sound sources before distortion, and support for battery or phantom power, the NTG2 offers a versatile, cost-effective solution for recording clean dialogue and sound effects.

The NTG2's elevated sensitivity allows it to produce strong output levels without having to apply extreme gain at your mic preamp. Sonically, the NTG2 delivers consistently clear sound due in part to its gentle rise in high frequencies and its rumble-reducing selectable low-cut filter. The durable and lightweight high-grade aluminum housing is finished in hard-wearing epoxy paint to withstand the stress of location recording.

Quality Sound Capture

The combination of the NTG2's 11" long body and supercardioid polar pattern yields focused front-facing directionality and enhanced attenuation of sound entering from the sides. Its low self-noise of 18 dBA and sensitive condenser element communicate detailed audio unburdened by the hiss that plagues many low-cost microphones. Plus, its balanced output allows longer cable runs than most camera-mount shotgun microphones.

Battery or Phantom Powered

Thanks to its 3-pin XLR output and operability with 48V phantom power or a single AA battery, the NTG2 is compatible with a variety of handheld audio recorders, field recorders, and mixer adapters as well as built-in preamps on cameras and camcorders.

Ideal for Boompole Mounting

The NTG2 includes a mic clip for easy placement on a mic stand or boompole. Alternatively, mount the NTG2 in the Rode SM4-R shockmount or Rode PG2-R pistol grip (both available separately) to impede the transfer of vibrations in boompole or handheld applications.

Windscreen Minimizes Wind Noise

The NTG2 has a foam windscreen to reduce unwanted wind noise from breezes, fans, heaters, and air conditioners. For maximum reduction of handling noise and wind noise in indoor or outdoor environments, consider the Rode Blimp furry windshield and shockmount suspension system (available separately).
