Turn Your Room Into a Studio
Apart from handheld recording, the DR-07X can also be used as a USB audio interface with two inputs and outputs, making it a strong yet easy gear for voiceover work, live streaming, podcasting and songwriting with studio-quality audio.
Adjustable Unidirectional Microphones
The DR-07X's onboard condenser microphones empower you with stereo capture for sources producing sound pressure levels up to 125 dB, so loud concerts won't be a problem, and the DR-07X also features adjustable unidirectional mics. The unidirectional mics minimize the pickup of sound entering from the rear of the capsules, resulting in a more focused tone with fewer reflections.
Transcript Your Voice Recordings
The new Dictation Mode enables the user to jump back and forth in preselected increments while playing back a file. It can be combined with speed control and a special dictation EQ making it useful for transcribing minutes recordings, for example. The new tape-style Overwrite mode with one level of undo allows users to select a drop-in time and replace part of an existing recording.
3.5mm Line Input with Plug-In Power
For maximum intelligibility and optimal vocal tone, recordists often prefer to use lavalier microphones that can be attached to the subject's clothing. The DR-07X's 3.5mm mini-jack input is designed for precisely that situation. Knowing that many lav mics require a small amount of voltage called plug-in power, Tascam offers a selectable setting to supply plug-in power to the 3.5mm input. Additionally, if you need to record the output of a wireless microphone receiver or an audio mixer, the 3.5mm input can accommodate it with its line-level signal input.
3.5mm Line Output
When you want to record to your camera and the DR-07X, just connect the 3.5mm mini-jack output from the DR-07X into your camera's input, then use the +/- buttons on the Home screen to adjust the output level. Alternatively, connect a pair of headphones to the 3.5mm mini jack for critical listening. Quick monitor checks can be done through the DR-07X's built-in mono speaker.
Ideal for Handheld or Tripod Use
Designed for optimal portability, the DR-07X is both small and light. The streamlined body lends itself to comfortable pocket or handheld use. To stop unplanned button presses in such situations, simply engage the side-panel hold switch. There is also a 1/4"-20 thread on the underside of the DR-07X which allows it to be mounted on a mic stand or tripod for stability.
Supports microSDXC Cards up to 128GB
To maximize compactness and portability, the DR-07X records directly to media cards: microSD, microSDHC, and microSDXC cards (up to 128GB capacity) are supported for long recording times even at high audio resolutions. With a 128GB card, the DR-07X can record in stereo for up to 192 hours at 16-bit / 44.1 kHz using uncompressed, BWF-compliant WAV format.
Power at your fingertips
With 2 AA alkaline batteries, you can power the DR-07X for up to 17.5 hours of stereo recording time at 16-bit / 44.1 kHz resolution. For long-duration sessions that require extended recording time, the DR-07X may be powered via a USB connection to a computer or mobile battery, or through the Tascam PS-P520E AC adapter (available separately).
