Up to 24-bit/96kHz WAV or MP3 recording with auto backup.

The TASCAM DR-2d Portable Digital Recorder brings high-resolution recording to a compact, affordable package. It offers up to 96kHz/24-bit WAV or MP3 recording to SD cards, and recordings can be transferred to your computer through high-speed USB 2.0.

A dual recording feature has two modes. Mode 1 records a copy of your audio at a lower level, so if the level suddenly jumps you have a backup instead of a distorted performance. Mode 2 records two separate stereo tracks at once, one from the built-in mics and a second from an external mic or from the line in, which could be a send from your mixing board or any other line-level stereo source. The resulting stereo tracks can be mixed together on the DR-2d or imported into your DAW for further editing.

Record using the new built-in condenser microphones or plug in your own. You can slow down recordings without changing the pitch, and there's even a metronome and built-in speaker. The DR-2d provides hours of recording time using a pair of AA batteries, making it the perfect partner for songwriting, live performance, rehearsal or home studio recording.
