I love it
Recently, I decided to start recording our pastor's sermons to make them available to our congregation. I was familiar with Tascam gear, having used their mixers, tape decks, dat machines etc., and I liked the portability factor of the Tascam hand held recorders. I was originally looking to purchase the DR-5, but my sales rep, Ian Lemberg thought that the DR-40 would be a better fit for my needs. As usual he was right. I totally love all of the features of the DR-40. I am able to make a clean recording of the Sunday sermon, take the recording home, transfer it to my DAW via USB, edit it, and master it. I love using the features such as the built in limiter, and the low end roll off to help make my editing and mastering chores a lot easier (these are only a few of the MANY features of this unit).. It's also pretty cool that you can record hours and hours of audio in either mono, stereo, or 4-track in .wav or mp3 formats at up to 96Khz sampling rate.. I always wanted a portable recording setup to capture sound outside of my studio, and this does the trick!
