The Tascam DR-40X Four Track Audio Recorder is a highly portable recording device ideal for musicians, sound designers, filmmakers, and field recordists.

The DR-40X intuitive design makes it incredibly easy to use. Record, adjust levels, delete bad takes, add markers. All at the push of a button. And the ability to change between recording techniques (A-B and X-Y) is as easy flipping the microphone swivel. The dual XLR/TRS combo jacks support line and mic level. In addition to the dual condensers on top of the device, the DR-40X is a versatile, portable recording tool that is extremely effective regardless of context.

The DR-40X is extremely compact but does not skimp on sound quality. The pair of condenser microphones responds to SPL levels of 125db meaning it can get crisp recordings in almost any sonic environments. Capture every detail.
