Portable Recorder for DSLR Cameras and more

The Tascam DR-70D is a compact HQ audio recorder that allows the aspiring DSLR user to create audio recordings in very high quality in parallel to their film or video shots. The recorder can be mounted directly between a tripod and the camera or on top of the camera, resulting in a very nice portable and compact package.

Two Built-in Microphones
The two omnidirectional microphones allow you to easily record natural stereo sound with just this unit. Used together with small shotgun mics, you can even record audio from people speaking in an interview and the ambient sound at the same time (on different tracks), for example, with a compact set up.

4 XLR/TRS Combo jacks allow a wide range of seupts
The four-channel design enables use of two shotgun mics and the stereo mic to record ambiance and each speaker individually. Since channels 1 and 2 can be set to the stereo input and channels 3 and 4 can be set to the built-in mic, a large variety of microphone setups is possible.

MONO/DUAL MONO mode: This is best for recording the audio of a single performer.
STEREO/DUAL STEREO mode: This is best for recording with the built-in microphone or a stereo mic.
2MIX/DUAL 2MIX mode: This creates stereo files of the signals of multiple inputs that have been mixed.

Built-in Mixer 4 inputs & 2 outpuuts
The mixer can take a total of 4 channels from among the four XLR inputs that support phantom power, the stereo mini-jack input and the built-in stereo mic. In addition to adjust pan and input level, this unit also offers a limiter, a five-setting low-cut filter and a delay that can compensate for distances between mics. Moreover, a mid-side decoding function allows the use of two microphones in mid-side configuration.

Quality Audio with HDDA Microphone Preamps
Mic preamps,  have a large impact on the quality of the recorded audio material. The DR-70D uses Tascam original HDDA (High Definition Discrete Architecture) microphone preamps that we created through careful selection of parts. With a mic amp circuit that uses discrete architecture comprised of meticulously-chosen parts, we have achieved an equivalent input noise of −120 dBu.
The A/D converter that converts analogue signals to digital is made by Cirrus Logic and is equivalent to those used in our successful DR series of linear PCM recorders. Recording at resolutions up to 96 kHz/24 bit is supported.
