Tascam DR-680MKII - 8 Track Field Recorder

The Tascam DR-680MKII brings multi-track portable recording within reach of any musician for polished live, location and surround recordings. Up to eight tracks can be recorded to solid-state SD card media at 96 kHz / 24-bit Broadcast WAV quality. Six mic inputs provide 60 dB of gain and phantom power for clear recordings with condenser microphones. Record the six analogue input signals along with a digital SPDIF source for 8-track recording.

Inputs can be monitored using a built-in mixer with level and pan controls for each input. The stereo mixdown can even be recorded along with the six analogue input signals for quick stereo playback of the event. There’s also a built-in speaker to check recordings without headphones.

The DR-680MKII is also able to capture stereo audio at 192 kHz / 24-bit for audiophile-quality masters or record up to four channels simultaneuously in space-saving MP3 format – ideal for minutes recording.
