Tascam - 'DR-701D'
Six-Channel Audio Recorder For DSLR Cameras

Tascam DR-701D

Compact High-Quality Multitrack RecordingThe Tascam DR-701D is a flagship audio recorder for one-shot video production. It features a timecode input and a timecode generator for simple synchronization with a SMPTE generator, camera, or smart slate. The HDMI in and out enables a DSLR camera to begin recording on both devices, and video clock prevents drift between sound and picture.

Four mic signals can be separately recorded and mixed to a stereo channel, for a total of six recording channels. For more channels, multiple units can be cascaded together. The lightweight yet rigid chassis is made from magnesium alloy. Tripod mounts on the top and bottom allow the unit to mount under a camera, attach to a follow-focus cage, or be used stand-alone.

Made to meet the needs of professional filmmakers, television producers, advertisers, and documentarians, the DR-701D features high-quality multitrack recording into a package compact enough package for use with any camera.

at a glance • Compact, professional-grade audio recorder designed to be used in combination with a DSLR camera
• Recording at 44.1/48/96/192 kHz, 16/24-bit, WAV/BWF format (192 kHz only for two-channel recording)
• High-quality recording inputs through Tascam original High Definition Discrete Architecture (HDDA) microphone preamps
• Mark function allows up to 99 points to be added to a single file

HDMI Video Clock Synchronization

Tascam DR-701D

Perfect Camera SyncAn HDMI input and output enables the DR-701D's internal clock and the camera to be digitally synchronized. Even when shooting long events, the video files recorded by the camera and audio files recorded by the DR-701D will not go out of sync.

Just by pressing the camera recording start button sends a trigger to the DR-701D to begin audio recording. Unlike other systems that require you to press record on both devices, the HDMI start system eliminates missed takes, syncs the two recording starts together, and makes single-operator shoots much easier.

Additional Track Recording

Tascam DR-701D

Cascade FeatureBy connecting several units using HDMI, slave DR-701D units can be made to follow a master unit to start and stop recording simultaneously. Since audio can also be output through the HDMI connection, monitoring selections can be made using slave units without reconnecting headphones.

SMPTE Timecode Stores Time Data In Recorded Audio Files

Tascam DR-701D

Multiple Timing OptionsThe built-in SMPTE generator means the camera and DR-701D can store the same time reference. Multiple options are available to integrate SMPTE LTC into your camera system. The BNC timecode input can follow a source signal, or can be "jam-synced" a few times per day for independant freewheel operation.

Cameras that send timecode through their HDMI output can be followed by the DR-701D's timecode input. The internal generator can be started without an external reference for a simple time-of-day stamp on recorded BWF files.

Six-Channel Recording

Tascam DR-701D

Four Channels + L-R Stereo MixWith the built-in mixer featuring four inputs and two outputs, four audio channels and their L-R stereo mix, six channels in total can be recorded simultaneously.

Along with pan and level adjustments, the mixer also includes a delay function that can compensate for distances between mics. Also built in is a mid-side decoding function for use with mid-side stereo microphone setups.

HDDA Microphone Preamps

HDDA Microphone Preamps

High-Quality AudioThe mic preamps that amplify the audio output from microphones have a large impact on the quality of the recorded audio. The DR-701D comes with TASCAM HDDA mic preamps, differential mic preamp circuits use discrete architecture and are made with carefully selected components. For example, op amps have a large impact on audio quality, so the OPA1652 by Texas Instruments was chosen, this has even higher quality and lower noise than those used in the previous DR-70D model. As a result, the unit has an equivalent input noise of -124 dBu or better.

The A/D converters that convert analogue signals to digital, are made by Asahi Kasei Corporation and are equivalent to those used in the top models in the TASCAM DR series of linear PCM recorders. High audio quality HDDA circuits truthfully convert amplified audio to digital. Resolutions up to 96 kHz/24-bit are supported when recording six channels and 192 kHz/24-bit when recording two channels.

Access To A Wide Range of Setups

Tascam DR-701D

Four XLR/TRS combo jacksThe DR-701D has four XLR/TRS inputs. The ability to adjust input levels independently and the availability of four channels make it possible to do separate miking of ambience and individual sound sources by utilizing two shotgun mics and one stereo mic.

Since a 3.5-mm stereo input can be selected for channels 1-2 and the built-in omni mics for channels 3-4, an even wider range of mic setups are possible.

Multiband Limiter & Five-Stage Low-Cut Filter

Tascam DR-701D

Eliminate Excessive InputA limiter function is included for all four inputs that automatically adjusts excessive input levels. A more natural sound quality is capable due to a multiband limiter which is used to affect only the frequency ranges that have excessive input.

A five-stage low-cut filter can also be adjusted to cut wind noise, rumble and other undesirable low frequencies. Safety files can be created by recording two audio files simultaneously at different levels in case the main recording clips due to unexpected input overloading.

Record The Same Audio With A DR-701D & Your Camera

Tascam DR-701D

Monitor Audio From The CameraA dedicated connector is included to output mixed audio to the DSLR or video camera. As a result. the same audio can be recorded by both the DR-701D and the camera. The output level has been made adjustable considering that input levels change depending on camera manufacturers and input adjustments on cameras are limited.

A camera input makes it possible to monitor the audio from the DSLR camera during playback. Using this with the DR-701D monitor selection function means you can easily listen to not only the DR-701D but also audio from the DSLR camera.

Record Ambience Using The Video Camera Mic

Tascam DR-701D

Easily Align Video FilesThe external input can be used to connect video camera mics that have stereo mini jack outputs, such as the TASCAM TM-2X. One potential setup is to connect a video camera mic to the EXT IN 1/2 input for recording ambience, and XLR shotgun mics to inputs 3-4. Plug-in power can also be supplied to the mini jack input for those mics that require it.

Can Be Used As A Standalone Field Recorder

Tascam DR-701D

Easy Outdoor UseThe DR-701D can be used as a six-channel field recorder with four input channels. You can add a strap to the red handles for comfortable outdoor use. Whether hung around the neck or shoulder, the unit can be easily operated and adjusted.

Easily Align Video Files

Tascam DR-701D

Slate tone generatorA slate tone generator is built-in to guide alignment in post production. By zooming into the waveform of both the camera and DR-701D audio, the sine wave can be perfectly lined up for exact synchronization.

Along with producing tones automatically at the start (or start and end) of recording, slate tones can also be produced at any point by the press of a button.

Tascam DR-701D Linear PCM Recorder/ Mixer for DSLR Cameras is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 'Quality' Well built ,small, quality 4 track audio recorder with many of the attributes of 'professional' jobs costing many thousands ,if not more so, especially with the HDMI/timecode 'syncing' included. Hi quality audio recording with a choice of many variable settings to suit your needs . Takes time to learn and evaluate it's true potential but once done ,amazing results. . Much better design than 'handheld' reporter type devices particularly with DSLRs' I have previously owned many 'Tascam' machines i.e. 32/2B half track, (which I still have and use) , 34/4 and the 38/8. All beautiful machines in their time and still hold great appeal, but it's now the 'digital' age and size decreases , functionality increases. For the moment ,I will not say audio quality increases when you consider what was achieved by those machines and ,of course ,the considerable current revival of 'vinyl' , once again, the analogue world. Back to the 'Tascam 701D' - well worth it ,amazing, practical audio recorder.
