Perfect and amazing value!

20.10.2015
So what can you do with this thing? Well, google the Tascam DR-05 Reference Manual, download and read it. Alternatively, here is what we have done with ours!

1 We recorded three sessions, that is 9 hours, of our three piece band playing covers and jamming, and that was on the same day we opened our Thomman package! That is how easy and intuitive the Tascam DR-05 is to use.

We were able to do as many takes as we liked. These can be started manually, or automatically if you set the input level above which the recording will start. Takes can be continuous, pausing recording in between, or in separate files which are created automatically. Bad takes can be deleted immediately with a couple of button presses.

The stereo is great, accurately placing the surrounding performers. No trouble setting the levels and avoiding any distortion. The drumkit was just as clear as the electric guitar and vocals.

2 Copied a GB of our favourite artists' songs from the computer to the Tascam DR-05.

These can be WAV or MP3 files. The Tascam DR-05 came with a 4GB micro SDHC card installed, so plenty of room for songs from our music collection, and cards are cheap when more storage is required. Now we have the real thing right next to our covers all on the same tiny device, which we can play back through any of our amps or PA.

3 Any song or recording can then be looped between marker points, which are very easily set in playback control. This is perfect for listening to sections you are learning, or identifying your own mistakes. You can also slow down, or speed up the playback from 50 to 150%. This is great for practice.

4 Plugged keyboard, electric guitar, and microphone (separately of course) in to the Tascam DR-05 for direct recording. All we needed was a 1/4 inch adapter to 3.5 mm jack. Just set the levels and perfect DI recording!

5 Overdubbed vocals and other instruments over a backing track!

Works for any WAV file or a recording we just made. I recorded rhythm guitar, then just chose overdub and a new track was created when I played the solo, then another track was created with the vocals added!

6 Sat the Tascam DR-05 on the orchestral music stand (cables through the holes so it couldn't commit a suicidal leap) next to an iPad and sheet music, DI instruments/mic and headphones for monitoring - perfect!

It fits in your hand nicely with all the controls easily reachable, or in a pocket or guitar case. It is solidly built but light, and attractive - great ergonomics. Tascam have been in the music recording business for a long time and this is designed to match their needs. However, it can also be used as a regular field recorder or voice memo device.

Tascam DR-05 V2 great for field recording

Nigel H., 02.05.2017
I purchased the Tascam DR-05 V2 as i wanted a handheld field recorder to capture sounds on the go.

The unit is well built and can fit comfortable in a jacket pocket. It is pretty easy to learn to use and has some nice features. The built in speaker sound quality is not great but to be honest i never use it anyway. The quality of the recordings is very good (24 bit). note - if you are using the direct line to record make sure your input is down low as this unit is sensitive.

You can change micro SD card easily and there is a place to add a tripod. Playback features are easy to use and file navigation is easy. you can connect the unit to usb for bus power or as a storage device for transferring your recordings to your computer.

To summarise this is a high quality field recorder and is ideal for recording on the go. highly recommended!

The multitracker is a great tool for musicians of all levels. It really can be a 'studio in a box' replacing many of the components of a traditional studio.
