A Supreme Back-Up
This is the second unit of this type I have purchased, as a 2-track back-up to remote session recordings, and will now be the standard for all other remote recording suites my company sends out. Small, high-res, and a great way to have a back-up in the archives "just in case" the Tascam DA-3000 will be the standard for our recording team. If, in this multi-track world, having a 2-track backup seems a bit archaic, in the past year alone I have had one CD project where the 2-track backup, because we leave it running all the time and don't stop between takes, became the ONLY source for a specific measure which was rehearsed, and therefore recorded on the back-up, where all other actual takes of that section of music had concerns. And, as is typical for the 2-track in the booth, the mix is very close to the final mix, or else we would not be listening to the session that way. Minor adjustments of the multi-track mix balance leading both into and out of that section madke it indistinguishable to the listener.
