Tascam DR40 4-Channel 96kHz/24-bit Digital Recorder with XLR Inputs and Adjustable Microphones. Four-track recording and extended battery life of the TASCAM DR-40 give you the flexibility you need to record tracks anywhere. 
The DR-40 captures up to four tracks from built-in, high-quality condenser microphones, XLR mic or line inputs. The internal mics are adjustable from XY to AB position, helping you to tailor your recording to the sound of the room. A pair of great-sounding Tascam microphone preamps welcome condenser microphones with phantom power, recording at up to 96kHz/24-bit resolution. It accommodates balanced XLR or 1/4" line inputs using locking Neutrik Combo jacks. The DR-40 accepts SD or SDHC cards up to 32GB, and a 2GB card is included. 
Once recorded, play back your takes with EQ and the optional Level Align feature to avoid volume jumps. A stereo reverb effect is also built-in, as well as a speaker and chromatic tuner. Transfer recordings to computer using the USB 2.0 jack. Other features include overdub mode, variable speed playback, limiting and low cut filter, and much more – all with Tascam's simple-to-use interface. No other recorder makes home or live recording as simple as the Tascam DR-40.
