And on January 21st of this year at their booth in Anaheim, CA, TASCAM announced the SD-20M, a user-friendly solid-state recorder at an affordable price. The 1U rackmount includes a pair of microphone preamps with phantom power for direct microphone recording. Both the mic inputs and line inputs can be recorded simultaneously in four-channel mode. The dual recording mode captures a copy of your audio at a lower level, as insurance against distorted takes.

SD-20M includes a power backup system using AA batteries which enables the recorder to keep recording for hours in case of power loss. You can attach a wired remote or footswitch to control the recording and playback. Variable speed playback allows the playback to be changed without affecting the pitch.
