TASCAM's DR-680 brings multi-channel portable
recording within reach of any musician for polished live, location and
surround recordings. Up to eight tracks can be recorded to solid-state
SD card media at 96kHz/24-bit Broadcast WAV quality. Six mic inputs
provide phantom power and 60dB of gain for great-sounding recordings
with your condenser microphones. Record the six microphones along with a
digital S/PDIF source for 8 track recording. Each mic input has a
selectable low cut filter and analog limiter for optimal sound.
Inputs can be monitored using a built-in mixer with level and pan
controls for each input. The stereo mixdown can even be recorded along
with the six mics for quick stereo playback of the event. There's even a
built-in speaker to check recordings without headphones.
In addition to WAV recording up to 96kHz, the DR-680 captures stereo
audio at 192kHz/24-bit for audiophile-quality masters. The DR-680
records up to four channels of MP3 audio for web-ready recordings. Two
of the recorders can be connected with a cascade cable for up to
14-track recording on battery power.
Multi-channel portable recording has never been as simple or affordable
as the TASCAM DR-680.

Most of our portable solid state sound recorders are
2-channel stereo devices for reporting, live music, meetings recording
and similar applications. You will see from our product pages for these
recorders that we normally offer a few microphone recommendations for
these kinds of uses. The Tascam DR-680, however, is a multitrack
recorder and thus can be used for a much wider range of applications.
Hence we ask you to use our comprehensive microphone section to select
the right mics for the job/s you are going to do. You can select from
our microphone section menu on the left further up the page.
