Convenient Palm-sized Recorder!Smaller, lighter, and easier-to-use than other handheld recorders in its class, the TASCAM DR-05 puts high-quality stereo recording into the palm of your hand. The DR-05 is capable of recording in MP3 format at up to 320 kbps and in Broadcast WAV format at up to 24-bit/96kHz resolution. A pair of uniquely designed omnidirectional condenser microphones provide crystal-clear recording and are able to handle sound pressure levels up to 125dB, making the DR-05 perfect for live event recording. In addition to handy recording functions, such as automatic peak reduction, the DR-05 also sports a self timer, allowing you to delay the start of its recording for 5 or 10 seconds. What's more, the DR-05's Level Align feature matches to relative volumes of both channels, so you can create professionally balanced recordings, right in your recorder!

An awesome recording tool!!
by Jason Anschutz from Sturgeon Bay, WII'm a musician who get ideas for songs all the time. Most of the time I get them at work where I have to try and hum the melody or tap it with my fingers. Since I purchased this recording tool, I've u... read more [+]sed it every day and am very glad I paid for what I got.I don't need all the bells and whistles in my recording since I can make them later with my DAW. I do need a "scratch pad" (which the DR-05 provides) and a way to obtain those melodies and rythms in my head. The Tascam DR-05 gives me everything I need and delivers an awesome sound. For all the musicians deciding on what recording unit to get, try the Tascam DR-05 for a pleasant surprise. You'll be glad you did! close [-]

It can also be used as an external mic for computers, which is a feature I hadn't originally planned on using. It makes recording straight onto your computer very quick and easy. All you need is a cable to connect to your computer's imput. So far I haven't found any problems, 5 stars for the Tascam DR-05. close [-]
