Tascam DR-07 Handy Recorder : Review


Many things in little space

The two built-in mics can capture a wide stereo image and in MP3 or WAV format. It provides many advanced functions, like the MP3 loop, the auto gain setting, a limiter and a low cut filter. It can really produce a good result in a small, portable device that can work with two AA batteries.

The Variable Speed Audition

A much useful function that can help learning music. It slows down the audio without changing the pitch, so the user can study a Riff, a solo and so on.

The USB port

It can be connected to a PC via the USB, so to transfer files to the PC and vice versa. When connected, it will appear like an hard disk.

Three sources for the signal

The built-in mics, an external microphone or the line input. The choice is fast and easy. Simply, the user must press the Menu button, then he can choose the input. Everything is immediate.


The DR-07 is a good recorder and provides all the necessary for a clean job, but Tascam in this sector is a certainty. The price includes a 2GB SD Card.

    Compatible with MP3, WMA and AAC files. It doesn't provide a slot for a memory card but only a 2GB built-in memory. The price is valid.

  • VN-7200
  • Olympus

    A product that can be the perfect solution for who is looking for a cheap device but with all the necessary for a good final result. The display is much large and the autonomy, really remarkable, is an important added value.
