MP3 - WAV Recorder
.








The recording of the sermons and other presentations at the Cottonwood SDA church requires that files be available in MP3 or WAV
format.  Presently, the webmaster is using the .CDR audio CD's which are recorded in the sound room, ripping the files each week to
MP3 or WAV format and uploading them to the website.  This is a time consuming process.  The webmaster is needing to record the
audio directly in MP3 or WAV format so they can then be uploaded directly to the website, eliminating the ripping process. 
   Several models of equipment are available which can do this.   There are two portable units out at $100 and $200 respectively
and two rack mount units one which records to SD card or Jump Drive and one which records to CD, SD Card or Jump Drive.
Price for these units is $500 and $1000 respectively.   Factory provided sales literature on each model is given below for the purpose
of making information available to the Audio Visual Committee and Webmaster to make a recommendation to the church board. 
Members of the church who have input should contact the webmaster prior to the board meeting Jan 22.


TASCAM Model DR-05 portable recorder  -- $100.00

TASCAM’s DR-05 brings high-quality stereo recording to an easy-to-use portable powerhouse with a size and price that anyone can handle. The DR-05 records in MP3 or WAV format – including 96kHz/24-bit high-resolution audio – to microSD or microSDHC media. A pair of all-new microphones handles up to 125dB SPL with the sensitivity to capture every detail. With new recording features like Peak Reduction and Quick Menu, the DR-05 puts album-quality recording in the palm of your hand.

Premium-quality Sound

Everything about the DR-05 is designed to get the best quality recordings of your music. A new pair of built-in microphones withstands up to 125dB SPL – the volume of a jet plane from 200 feet away – yet still have the sensitivity to capture every detail of a performance. You can add your own microphone or line-level source through the 1/8” stereo input, including plug-in power for microphones that need it.

Internally, the DR-05’s digital and analog circuit boards are built separately to increase noise performance, with a low-impedance design to further decrease hiss. A separate power supply is sent to the A/D and D/A converter for even better audio performance. The result is clean sound quality – over 92dB signal to noise ratio, under 0.05% total harmonic distortion and 20Hz to 40kHz response (-1/+3dB) at 96kHz/24-bit resolution.

Simple to Operate

The layout of the DR-05 has been revamped to be quick and easy to work with one thumb. Operations like recording, adjusting levels, deleting bad takes and adding markers are just a button press away. Dig deeper to find features like limiting, low cut filtering, a built-in chromatic tuner and more.

One new feature that makes the DR-05 easy to operate is the new Peak Reduction feature. This setting automatically sets your recording level by listening to the input and adjusting for the best level. Unlike Auto Gain settings, this one only goes down to prevent accidental distortion after a period of low level like a break. Peak Recording works in rehearsal mode or in record, so if the performance is louder than the soundcheck you’re still safe. Used with the built-in limiter, it’s unlikely you’ll distort your career-making live recording.

Other classic TASCAM features are included, like Variable Speed Audition to loop and slow down music without changing the pitch – perfect for transcribing or learning new music. A Level Align function can be switched on for playback, to smooth out any sudden volume jumps, and a built-in speaker is also provided. The two AA batteries are enough to power the recorder for 17 1/2 hours, even while recording at CD quality.

For musicians and recordists at any stage of their career, there’s no easier way to get great-sounding recordings than TASCAM’s
