Protects You From Overloaded Recordings!TASCAM'S DR-2d is cool in a bunch of ways. Not only is it a high-quality (and affordable) portable recording solution, but it also has a number of tricks up its sleeve aimed to make your recording duties easier. First of all, it has a built-in stereo microphone and a set of effects for shining up your sound. Next up, there's a built-in metronome for perfectly timed recordings, a tuner for perfectly in-tune recordings, plus a built-in speaker so you can hear everything back. The DR-2d records to SD media, by the way, and it comes with a handy 2GB SD card — plus a USB computer connection, so you can immediately connect it to your Mac or PC and transfer your files. Our favorite DR-2d feature on the TASCAM DR-2d though, is the dual record function.
So, what is dual record exactly? In a word, a lifesaver. Basically, you can record the exact same audio to the TASCAM DR-2d at two different input gain levels. That means if your first gain setting accidentally distorts — maybe the guitarist kicked it up too loud in the bridge or the drum levels got too hot — well, you'll have a second version of your recording at a lower level so you don't have to trash the entire take. If you comp the two of them, you'll have a flawless version of the recording, which will definitely put a smile on your face when you capture that impossible-to-recreate moment. Cool, right? We thought so too.
If you're rehearsing your music, you'll appreciate the built-in speaker. You'll also appreciate two more features. You are able to loop the playback, so you can work on a particular part without the recorder always moving ahead. Beyond that, the TASCAM DR-2d lets you slow down audio without changing the pitch — perfect for rehearsing that killer solo until you can nail it at the right tempo. Last, not least, the DR-2d includes a wireless remote control so you can take charge of your features from wherever you need to be — especially great if you're parked in front of a drum kit, a keyboard, or guitar rig... and don't want to make the trek to your perfectly placed TASCAM DR-2d just to start and stop the recording.
All in all, the TASCAM DR-2d is a sweet value. Whether you want to record band practices, capture your lessons, rehearse your favorite band's songs — all three or more — the DR-2d is a great pick.

Very cool! Nice mics, 24/96, WAV or MP3, small enough for a shirt pocket. OH where were you when I was getting busted trying to record concerts on big, bulky recorders that were not easy to hide? You could have saved me from being kicked out of some of the best concert halls in America! ;) NO ONE that considers themselves musicians should be without a flash recorder, period.
