Tascam DR-40 - Great value and consistent performer.

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!

Nice portable mp3 recorder

neoman1, 22.05.2017
I am using it for musical instrument samples. It is very easy to use. If you use external mics then the recording goes way up! The only disadvantage is the AAA batteries but at this price it is totaly acceptable.
