Record up to 96kHz/24 bit audio in WAV format.

The pocket-sized Tascam DR-05 is your perfect go-to for recording birds, frogs, or speech in the field. Up to 96kHz/24-bit Broadcast WAV film recording provides better than CD quality to capture every detail. This device is easy-to-use with functions such as two-button record and the Quick Menu for fast setting changes.

Built into the DR-05 are a pair of omnidirectional condenser microphones, which are tailored for natural ambient recording, with a rich bass response and low handling noise. An additional stereo microphone can be attached for increased recording flexibility. The peak limiter prevents unexpected loud sounds from distorting your recording, whilst an auto-level setting sets the level based on the sound level in your environment, and a low-cut filter removes noise.

Key Features:

  • Records in WAV or MP3
  • Built-in microphone and speaker
  • High-end recording quality
  • Omni condenser microphones
  • Peak limiter prevents clipping
