Tascam announce new 4-track recorder

SD-20M recorder designed for installation

Tascam have announced that they will release the SD-20M 4-track recorder for installation, in May. With an SRP of only  £225 inc. VAT, the SD-20M is an affordable solution for conference centres, schools and houses of worship, with an emphasis on reliable and straightforward recording.

Featuring stereo RCA line-inputs on the rear, the 1-U rackmount includes a pair of microphone preamps with phantom power for direct microphone recording. Both the mic inputs and line inputs can be recorded simultaneously in four-track mode. Using the dual recording mode, users can capture a copy of the audio at a lower level, as an insurance against distorted takes.

The SD-20M also includes a battery backup system: AA batteries can keep recording for hours in case of power loss. A wired remote or footswitch can be attached to control recording and playback, whilst variable speed playback allows the playback to be changed without affecting the pitch.

Key features:

  • Four-channel solid-state recorder
  • Two microphone inputs with phantom power on XLR - 1⁄4" combo jacks
  • RCA stereo line inputs and outputs
  • WAV or MP3 recording formats supported
  • AA battery backup – keeps recording even after power loss
  • SDXC media slot supports up to 128GB cards
  • File divide feature
  • Dual recording function records a copy of your audio at a lower level for a distortion-proof safety track
  • Variable speed playback changes speed without changing the pitch
  • Simple user interface
  • 1/4" stereo headphone output
  • Remote jack for wired or footswitch control
