Product Highlights

  • Premium-quality sound

    Everything about the DR-05 is designed to get the best quality recordings of your music. The built-in microphones still have the sensitivity to capture every detail of a performance. You can add your own microphone or line-level source through the 1/8"" stereo input, including plug-in power for microphones that need it. Internally, the DR-05's digital and analog circuit boards are built separately to increase noise performance, with a low-impedance design to further decrease hiss. A separate power supply is sent to the A/D and D/A converter for even better audio performance.

  • Simple to operate

    The layout of the DR-05 has been revamped to be quick and easy to work with one thumb. Operations like recording, adjusting levels, deleting bad takes and adding markers are just a button press away. Dig deeper to find features like limiting, low cut filtering, a built-in chromatic tuner and more. One feature that makes the DR-05 easy to operate is the peak reduction feature. This setting automatically sets your recording level by listening to the input and adjusting for the best level. Unlike auto gain settings, this one only goes down to prevent accidental distortion after a period of low level like a break. Peak recording works in rehearsal mode or in record, so if the performance is louder than the soundcheck you're still safe. Used with the built-in limiter, it's unlikely you'll distort your career-making live recording. For musicians and recordists at any stage of their career, there's no easier way to get great-sounding recordings than Tascam's DR-05.

  • High-end recording quality

    Tascam's DR-05 puts premium recording quality in the palm of your hand. Up to 24-bit broadcast WAV film recording provides better than CD quality to capture every detail. The DR-05 is simple to use with functions like two-button record and the quick menu for fast setting changes.

  • Omni condenser microphones

    The stereo microphones are tailored for natural ambient recording, with rich bass response and lower handling noise than most handheld recorders. The built-in microphones capture a wide, natural frequency range suitable for any type of voice, nature or musical recording. A 1/8"" microphone input is also available for adding your own stereo microphone or recording a line-level source. The DR-05 includes playback modes to loop a section of playback or slow it down without changing the pitch, perfect for learning new music. A built-in speaker is included for checking recording without headphones. The level align feature smooths out level jumps during playback to help you monitor your raw, unmastered recordings.

  • Peak limiter prevents clipping

    A built-in stereo peak limiter prevents unexpected loud sounds from distorting your recording. Just flip it on to keep sudden jumps from ruining your takes. Another recording mode is the auto level setting, which sets the level based on the sound level in the room. Other settings include a low cut filter, useful for removing rumble or wind noise when outdoors.
