Quite Noisy
Aaron482, 10.06.2020
The built in mics are quite good but the preamps for the external XLR's are quite noisy, especially for microphones with a lower sensitivity.

I would recommend to avoid this model
STARIY7, 26.07.2019
Been used TASCAM DR-40 last year and it was just fine, without any issues. But when I bought this one, and it's a new model (DR-40X) of the same product, I found out (and not only me), that it's not working (not turning on) with batteries included or any other ones. It only works when plugged-in with USB cable, for me it's not right and I don't want to use this product only with USB cable.
Such a shame TASCAM made new model like that, they've changed only USB port from mini-USB to micro-USB and changed the screen color, but ruined very good product it was before. And also now they're not supplying this item with SD-card like it was with DR-40 model.
Overall, recording sound is very good. But ... it's not portable.

Don't buy
Skip89, 23.09.2019
If you plan on using Phantom Power with this device make sure you buy a USB battery to plug in to your Tascam, as the minute you put Phantom on the Tascam turns off. which is a poor quality design.

Good Value
Oliver Munkholm, 24.10.2020
A solid recorder for the money

The preamps have a lot of noise, but that can be fixed with a fethead, and then it is a very good tool for portable reccording.

The multitracker is a great tool for musicians of all levels. It really can be a ‘studio in a box’ replacing many of the components of a traditional studio.
