Affordable Recorder Captures to 1GB SD Card
Montebello, CA (January 17, 2008): TASCAM has announced the DR-1 Portable Digital Recorder, a compact unit that captures hours of music using built-in mics to its 1GB SD card. A pair of microphones is mounted on a variable angle mechanism, which allows the recorder to record from almost anywhere. The unit includes a generous 1GB SD card for hours of recording at MP3 or WAVE file formats. The DR-1 also includes auto gain control and analog limiting for easy setup and a low-frequency cutoff to eliminate handling or wind noise. And with a MAP price of only $299, every musician is going to want one.
"The DR-1 is the portable recorder that everyone's been waiting for," said Paul Jenkins, Director of Sales and Marketing for TASCAM. "It's the first to include a card big enough for serious recording, and the price point is a wake-up call for the entire industry. TASCAM has a thirty-year history of creating the recorders that musicians want, and the DR-1 is sure to be our latest hit recorder."
The DR-1 packs a mobile truck full of equipment into a recorder compact enough to fit in your pocket:
