Combination SD Recorder and Portable Sound System Makes Recording Fun and Easy

Montebello, CA (October 9, 2009): The TASCAM BB-800 Portable SD Recorder is built to make recording portable and simple. Four microphones record to SD Card media at CD or MP3-quality, and a pair of XLR inputs is also available for using external microphones. Recordings can instantly play back through an internal stereo sound system.

The BB-800CD offers uncompressed recording to SD Card as WAV or MP3 files. The recorder can blend two microphones on the front of the unit, two mics on the rear and a pair of XLR mic inputs with phantom power as the recording source. Tracks can be played through the built-in speaker system, and can be looped and slowed down without changing the pitch. The built-in tuner and metronome provide audio-visual feedback for practicing students. A set of AA batteries powers the unit, or it can be plugged in with the included power supply. The BB-800 also includes a wireless remote for starting the recording from anywhere on stage.
