  TASCAM DEBUTS HD-P2 PORTABLE STEREO RECORDER
Professional Recorder Captures Audio at High-Resolution to Compact Flash Media with Built-In Timecode
Montebello, CA (October 7, 2005): Answering the call of remote recording engineers, the TASCAM HD-P2 Portable High-Definition Stereo Audio Recorder is the professional solution for the challenging requirements of live and on-location applications. It records at up to 192kHz/24-bit resolution for audiophile quality to Compact Flash media, locked to the built-in SMPTE timecode input. The Broadcast WAVE audio files are instantly available through the built-in high-speed FireWire computer connection.

"The HD-P2 includes the features that professionals rely upon, such as timecode sync, built-in analog limiting and dependable performance," says Rick McClendon, Division Manager for TASCAM. "We prepared the HD-P2 for grueling professional use while keeping it affordable and simple enough for anyone to use. It's the least-expensive recorder to ever feature timecode lock for recording and playback, and the 192kHz/24-bit audio specs are nothing short of phenomenal. The HD-P2 records to Compact Flash media - constantly saving the audio to prevent against data loss - and the time-stamped Broadcast WAVE files are available for instant use in any DAW."
Unlike consumer MP3 sketchpads, the professional HD-P2 incorporates high-end features like a SMPTE timecode input for synchronization to external devices while in record or playback. When recording, the HD-P2 writes time-stamped Broadcast WAVE audio files that can be loaded into your DAW projects with sample accuracy. Its XLR microphone inputs include phantom power and a limiter to curb distortion during unpredictable live events. The user interface has been designed for fast and intuitive use under stressful one-take-only situations, and its large, angled LCD is perfect for any application from over-the-shoulder location recording to concert recording and commercial use.
