Our church is in serious need of portable multitrack recorder. Our old unit is not as effective anymore. The recording produced is not as clear. The children's choir recorded some Christmas songs. The live performance was quite impressive. However, the recorded songs were a bit scratchy, if you know what I mean.The person in charge of the audio-video booth is considering to replace the old multitrack recorder with a tascam dr680. This portable 8-track recorder is best since we could bring it on location. It's now pegged at $600. Not bad huh?
