For filmmaking, television, audio-for-VR, and web broadcast applications where you want to record direct sound, ambience, and your real-time mix, the Tascam DR-701D multitrack field recorder is an ideal companion for your DSLR. Capture up to four tracks of high-resolution audio from external sources and the onboard omnidirectional microphones plus a stereo mix, route audio to and from your camera, and conveniently monitor through headphones. With versatile mounting possibilities, timecode support, and tight camera sync via HDMI I/O, the DR-701D integrates seamlessly into your video production setup.
Versatile powering methods and remote-control options make the DR-701D ideal for location recording and extended video shoots. Its four 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 settings such as stereo safety track recording, automatic level control, limiting, and low-cut filtering to achieve a clean, undistorted recording. Thanks to its available Ambisonics A-/B-format recording with real-time stereo monitoring, the DR-701D is ready to produce audio for your next AR or VR project.
Simply pressing the record button on your compatible camera sends a trigger to the DR-701D to start audio recording. Unlike other systems that force you to press record on both devices, the HDMI start system prevents missed takes, syncs the two recording starts together, and makes single-operator shoots much easier.
Cameras that send timecode through their HDMI output can be followed by the DR-701D's timecode input. Alternatively, the internal generator can be started without an external reference for a simple time-of-day stamp on recorded BWF files.
