Great 4 track ENG recorder

studio amsterdam, 01.05.2018
Great recorder with time locking possibilities, steady audio quality and lots of features like Low pas filters on different frequencies. I have bought a bunch of them for the video academy I work. They are not Sound Devices quality, but they are not that price either!

Good, but unfortunately too expensive compared to the competition!

The DR-701D is a professional version of the DR-70D and has the following features:

- Magnesium housing instead of plastic
- 4dB low-noise microphone amplifier
- HDMI input and output for timecode
- stronger headphone output

I had the recorder sent to me because I wanted to build a lightweight video rig with a SONY RX-100 M5 compact camera. This camera has an HDMI output with timecode. When connected to the HDMI input of the recorder, recording starts synchronously with the camera's video recording and remains synchronized for a long time. The recorder can even record the HDMI audio signal on another stereo track. The output of the recorder transmits the HDMI signal unchanged eg to a monitor or a video interface. These functions are not available on any other Recorder I know.

Everything works fine and the sound result is without blame, as long as you do not overdrive the input, because the built-in limiter works on the digital level and does not get it when the microphone preamp is distorted.

The device is pleasantly compact and lightweight and meets semi-professional requirements. With 4 AA cells it runs 2-3 hours and it can be powered by a 5 volt USB power pack.

So far so good, but unfortunately the company ZOOM with the F4 has recently brought a recorder on the market, which surpasses for a only 10% higher price various technical data of the TASCAM and also can work as a USB interface. There is even a controller with right faders for it. Besides, he is not quite as fiddly to operate as the TASCAM. But you can take the higher weight and the larger dimensions in purchasing. However, the zoom has an SDI interface instead of an HDMI interface, ie you can not synchronize it easily with semi-professional cameras.

Therefore, the DR-701D unfortunately had to go home. If the TASCAM were unrivaled, the price-performance ratio would have been right, but not so. I think that TASCAM soon realizes this and clearly lowers the price of the DR-701, then you can definitely recommend it.

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.
