Tascam DR-60DMKII is a 4-track linear PCM recorder that can improve the audio quality of videos when used during filming with a DSLR (digital single-lens reflex camera) and video camcorder. A high level of sound quality and user-friendliness was achieved by installing professional audio recorder technology that Tascam has fostered throughout many. One function of the DR-60DMKII that is optimal for audio recording in videos is its slate tone function, which makes audio alignment during editing easy. Not only can users manually record the slate tone by simply pressing the slate button, but the automatic tone function can also automatically record the slate tone when recording starts. The device’s shape and form were also designed with consideration toward camera attachment: by having the tripod screw threads on the bottom and the camera screw attachment on the top, the DR-60DMKII can be mounted between the tripod and the camera. Despite using lightweight plastic for the body to keep the overall weight low when mounted to a camera, the ribbed internal structure achieves robustness as well as its lightweight. Also, the width was kept to 133mm, the same as a standard DSLR camera’s width, to achieve a design that will maintain operability with DSLRs. The DR-60DMKII’s high-sound quality design features include preamp, which plays the role of increasing the input sound level, has Tascam’s unique HDDA (High Definition Discrete Architecture) circuit installed and boasts a stunning EIN rating of -120dBu. The DR-60DMKII is equipped with two XLR/TRS input jacks that support a phantom power supply for professional condenser microphones, as well as a +4dBu line level that receives input signals from mixers. Also, it’s stereo mini jacks support general camcorder microphones allow for a total of 4-channel simultaneous input. Furthermore, HI+PLUS gain was newly added to support recording low volume sounds.
