I ordered the DR-40. The DR-40 has XLR inputs with phantom power as well as the built in condensers.

The unit should be here tomorrow. I am hoping it will replace my laptop dependent field recorder.

Here are some sound clips recorded with the unit.

The first clip was recorded in a classroom. The BIAB backing tracks were played back using ch 1/2 while the students were recorded to ch 3/4 using the built-in mics in the a/b configuration. The SmartBoard Speakers were used as monitors. The two .wav tracks were imported to Audacity and mixed for volume. There are no effects added.

SAMPLE 1

The second clip was recorded from the passenger seat of my 20 year old Saturn Wagon using the internal mics in the a/b configuration. The gain was set low to prevent clipping. This is the raw wav file edited for brevity only.

At :18 you can hear the rubber on the pavement. From :30 to :40 you hear passing traffic (the driver's window was open) at :50 you can actually hear the texture of the road change -- this is a rough section just before my subdivision. At 1:00 I am pulling into my drive and at 1:10 you can hear my reason for existence.

SAMPLE 2
