Tascam DR-701D

6-track recording (4 tracks L-R stereo mix)
DR-701D

Using the built-in mixer, 4 tracks and their stereo mix (6 tracks total) can be simultaneously recorded. In addition to pan and level adjustments, the mixer includes a delay function to compensate for distances between mics. A mid-side decoding function is also built-in for use with MS stereo mics.

New function of V2.00

TASCAM becomes a Sennheiser Technology Alliance Member with the latest firmware update for DR-701D

Viewed as the ultimate portable audio system for video production the TASCAM DR-701D now supports Virtual Reality (VR) content creators with the Version 2.00 firmware update. This new update supports Ambisonics recording by enabling encoding both A and B formats and providing a real-time stereo monitor mix of B format content.
Along with robust and compact body, DR-701D is the ideal recording solution for VR production.

DR-701D
Main Features of V2.00 Firmware
  • Support Ambisonics recording in A format/ B format
  • Stereo mix of B format for input monitoring and playback through headphone out and line output
  • Support AmbiX and FuMa for B format recording
  • Support input monitoring and line output with stereo mix of B format source
  • Four XLR inputs with ? phantom power
  • GANG function for precise control of 4 channels at once
  • Selectable mic positioning allows flexible setting of Ambisonic mic (Upright/ Upside Down/ End Fire)

Various synchronization functions using HDMI connections

Perfect camera sync using HDMI video clock synchronization
DR-701D

An HDMI input and output allows 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 drift out of sync.

One button press on the camera starts sound recording on the DR-701D

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

Cascade feature for additional track recording
DR-701D

By connecting multiple 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
DR-701D

The built-in SMPTE generator allows the camera and DR-701D to store the same location reference. Several options are available to integrate SMPTE LTC into your camera system. The BNC timecode input can follow a source signal, or can be "jamsynced" 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. And the internal generator can be started without an external reference for a simple time-of-day stamp on recorded BWAV files.

The magnesium-alloy chassis is lightweight yet rugged enough for daily on-set use

The DR-701D's chassis is forged using a magnesium alloy, chosen for its lightweight but solid structure. Desipte its compact size, a high number of inputs and outputs are included. Screw threads for mounting a tripod are included on the bottom of the unit, while a removable camera attachment screw and hot shoe are included on the top of the unit. The DR-701D includes a number of mounting options ? either below the camera for best cable management, above the camera, or mounted to a follow-focus cage.

DR-701DDR-701D
High-quality HDDA (High Definition Discrete Architecture) mic preamps

 

DR-701DThe microphone preamps have a significant impact on the quality of the recorded audio. The DR-701D features TASCAM HDDA mic preamps. The differential mic preamp circuits use discrete architecture, built with carefully selected components. For example, Texas Instruments OPA1652 op amps were selected for their high quality and low noise ? with even better audio performance than the previous DR-70D model. As a result, the unit boasts an equivalent input noise of -124 dBu or better.

 

DR-701D

The A/D converters, which convert analog 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 faithfully convert the amplified audio to digital. Resolutions up to 96kHz/24-bit are supported when recording 6 tracks and 192kHz/24-bit when recording 2 tracks.

Multiple mic inputs support various recording options
DR-701D

The four XLR/TRS inputs can be adjusted and recorded independently, allowing various on-set recording options. Talent can be recorded using shotgun mics, lavaliers, or both simultaneously. Ambience can be recorded using a stereo mic (or the built-in microphones.) The 3.5mm stereo input can be selected for channels (1-2) and the built-in omni mics for channels (3-4) for an even wider range of mic setups.

Multiband limiter and 5-stage low-cut filter built-in

The limiter function automatically adjusts excessive input levels, and can operate independently on each of the four inputs. A more natural sound quality is achieved because a multiband limiter is employed, affecting only the frequency ranges that have excessive input. In addition, a low-cut filter can be adjusted to five different frequencies to cut wind noise, rumble and other undesirable low frequencies without damaging the source audio.

Record the built-in stereo mic together with external mics
DR-701D

Two omni condenser mics are built into the DR-701D for natural stereo sound images. Used in combination with small handheld or shotgun mics, speakers can be interviewed while capturing the surrounding environment in a compact setup.

A temperature-compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO) provides a solid internal clock

A high precision TCXO is employed for the internal clock generator. Like other TASCAM professional studio equipment, the TCXO reduces clock errors (jitter) to improve the quality of the digital recording. Additionally, a PLL (phase-locked loop) circuit with a discrete filter further reduces jitter for the best possible audio quality.
