Tascam Updates DR-680 With Mid-Side Recording Features
Posted on Tuesday, November 30, 2010


DR-680 Version 1.20 Includes Mid-Side Monitoring and Decoding
San Francisco, CA – AES Booth 909 (November, 2010): TASCAM's DR-680 portable recorder will be updated to version 1.20, which adds features for recording with mid-side microphones. Popular with sound effects recordists, mid-side recording offers a solid mono image with adjustable stereo width. But MS signals must be decoded before used in a mix.
DR-680 version 1.20 offers two modes for mid-side decoding. The encoded signal can be recorded and decoded through the headphone outputs, or the input can be decoded internally and recorded.
The TASCAM DR-680 is a portable recorder that records 8 tracks (or six discrete tracks and a stereo mix) at 96kHz/24-bit resolution. Six microphone inputs with phantom power are available for multi-channel or surround recording. It records to SD/SDHC card media in WAV, Broadcast WAV or MP3 format, and stereo 192k recording is also available.

The free firmware update for the DR-680 can be downloaded from the TASCAM website at the end of November
