San Francisco - Nov 5, 2010 - Tascam's DR-680 portable recorder version 1.20 adds features for recording with mid-side microphones, which offer a solid mono image with adjustable stereo width. Mid-side signals must be decoded before used in a mix. DR-680 now offers two modes for mid-side decoding. The encoded signal can be recorded and decoded through the headphone outputs, or the input can be decoded internally and recorded.

The Tascam DR-680 is a portable recorder that records eight tracks (or six discrete tracks and a stereo mix) at 96kHz/24-bit resolution. Six microphone inputs with phantom power are available for multi-channel or surround recording. It records to SD/SDHC card media in WAV, Broadcast WAV or MP3 format, and stereo 192k recording is also available.

The free firmware update for the DR-680 can be downloaded from the Tascam website at the end of November 2010.
