Tascam DR-70D 4-Channel Audio Recorder

Four XLR inputs and a stereo mic for versatile audio production the Tascam DR-70D is the ultimate audio recording solution for filmmakers. Designed to meet the requirements of professional production sound, the DR-70D is a high quality compact recorder and preamp featuring HDDA (High Definition Discrete Architecture) mic preamps that include 64dB of gain for quiet performances. Thanks to the compact form, the recorder can be mounted either above or below a camera and a user-friendly interface ensures quick and easy adjustment, with additional advanced features to keep recording levels under control.

  • Two built-in omnidirectional mics
    Two omnidirectional microphones allow easy recording of natural stereo sound without using external mics. Used in combination with one or two other mics, the DR-70D becomes a compact setup for recording interviews and ambient sound at the same time.

    4 XLR/TRS combo jacks allow a variety of setups
    Four XLR/TRS inputs are built-into the DR-70D. The four-channel design enables combinations of shotgun microphones, lavaliere mics, and the built-in stereo mic to be recorded individually. Channels 1 and 2 can be set to stereo input and channels 3 and 4 can be set to the built-in mics, making a variety of mic configurations possible.
    Built-in 4-in/2-out mixer enables 4-channel and stereo recording
    Each of the four inputs is sent to a stereo mixer. This allows each input to be recorded individually for post production while a stereo mix is sent to headphones and the camera guide track.

    HDDA (High Definition Discrete Architecture) mic preamps
    Microphone preamps do a lot of work to convert your mic-level signals to recordable levels, so they have a big impact on the quality of the audio that is recorded. The DR-70D uses TASCAM HDDA microphone preamps - created through careful selection of parts. An NE5532 op-amp was selected for its outstanding effect on audio quality. Through a mix of discrete architecture and hand-picked components, TASCAM has achieved an equivalent input noise level of −120 dBu.

    Compact, rugged design can be attached above or below the camera
    The DR-70Ds design is as compact as possible to stay out of the way while filming. The bottom of the unit has tripod screw threads for mounting under your camera or on a follow-focus cage. A removable camera attachment screw and hot shoe for the top of the unit are also included.
    Camera out jack for audio recording on both the DR-70D and camera
    A stereo mix of your audio is sent to the camera output for later synchronisation in your editing software. Simply drop your audio and video into the multi-camera feature of most editing software and audio will be automatically synced. Alternatively, software such as Red Giant Pluraleyes can be used to automatically sync audio and video.

    Slate tone generator makes alignment with video files easy
    The built-in generator can produce slate tones that can be used as references when aligning audio and video. Line up the waveforms when you need perfect sync between audio and video. In addition to being able to produce slate tones when recording starts or when it starts and stops, the SLATE button can be used to add slate tones at any desired point.

    3.5mm stereo mini jack input accepts video camera mics
    The 3.5mm stereo 1-2 input mini jack allows the connection of consumer video camera mics. For example, connect a video camera mic for ambience to jack 1-2, and shotgun mics to the XLR 3-4 jacks. This unit can supply plug-in power to the microphone and has a maximum input level of +10 dBV.

    Camera in jack for monitoring and playback
    The Camera In jack allows playback from your camera to evaluate a take. Either the camera signal or DR-70D can be monitored through the headphones.
