Bought with an eye on the pricetag to work as a field recorder for interviews while still keeping a possibility to record musical events etc with the same recorder it have shown to be a good and useful recorder.

The internal microphones are, as expected, sensitive to handling noises and without a windsock extremly sensitive for wind noise. Mounted on a stand and if needed with windprotector they are however quality microphones who produce good recordings.

Attaching an external interview microphone turns the DR-40 into a dependable recorder with great sound. The sound gets as good as the attached mic can get it! Here comes also one of the few drawbacks to surface, the settings for different microphones (internal/external etc) are a bit fiddly do deal with. The menue could be easier to manouvre in. Otherwise it´s a dependable working tool!

good recording

The tascam dr40 is a useable tool for keeping ideas in memory and capturing the mood of a session. Even using big tube amplifiers the tascam can be adjusted the kind of way that the signal does not distort, Bass frequencys are not the strengh of the tascam, might be due to the inner microphones. You can even put in the signal of an acoustic guitar, then the signal is much better. I think in this kind of way it might be with acoustic basses too. I have this device for more than a year now and i would not miss it at all. It became to an necessary gadget while gigging and having fun with band mates. The quality of the sound is of course not compareable with a studio take, but for a hobby musician the tascam is very very cool!
