Why the Tascam DR-40X is the Best Affordable Audio Recorder for Most People



If you need a great audio recorder for the least amount of money, the new Tascam DR-40X is probably the best option available. Get the full story here ▶️

If you primarily record audio with external dynamic microphones like the Shure SM58, the Tascam DR-40X isn’t the best choice for you.

For everyone else, the DR-40X is your best budget-friendly option. It works wonderfully with condenser mics, like shotguns, wireless, and large diaphragms. Plus, it handles line-level audio excellently.

  • Sam! When recording 4 channel using the built in ones and just one external condenser, is it possible to have the external source recorded in stereo? I am getting just the left channel

  • Amazing review, Sam. I'm currently shopping for a device for recording audio from DJ boards at weddings and other events. The Zoom 6 I rented recently had a cool feature where I could take a Line out feed through its dedicated port and send to my camera through a wireless Receiver/Transmitter unit. Though I see Line Out listed among the outputs of the DR-40x, I'm uncertain how it works because the "line out" doubles as a earphone port.

    I'm interested to know if it can work as the Zoom 6 does. I will appreciate your feedback.

  • Hei 🙂
    So, i have to choose between this new beautiful model from Tascam, the DR40X and the Zoom H5, considering that it will be used for weddings, mostly from Dj's mixer, what would you choose? Thanks 😎

  • Nice overview Sam and I enjoyed the recorder history . I have the older DR-40 so I I also appreciate the comparison between new and old. One point I am unclear about is that you indicate the the DR-40s have 4 independent channels and I find that not to be quite true for the DR-40. In comparison, the Zoom H4N can record a mono track to any of its 4 tracks. The DR-40 can only multitrack by recording a stereo pair over a prerecorded stereo pair. Has this changed with the DR-40X?

  • So what is best do you think, for both line level recording, as well as using dynamic mic external mic input? I want to record two channel (stereo) mixes from my dj mixer output, over 6-9 hour events. I currently use my laptop and audio interface but want to have something that doesn't need to be plugged in (sometimes I get some noise through monitor speakers if laptop plugged in) and takes up less room.

  • Really great video! It's funny because I just got a new dynamic mic for videos and didn't realize dynamic mics could have issues with these recorders
