When you don't need the digital input, a two-channel mix can be recorded to tracks 7 and 8. The internal monitoring mix can be recorded as a stereo track, with completely separate level and pan settings from the 6 independent tracks. Share a stereo mix immediately, while retainig the multitrack version for mixdown. TASCAM premium HDDA (High Definition Discrete Architecture) mic preamps. Microphone preamps have a significant impact on the quality of the recorded audio.
The DR-680MKII has HDDA mic preamps - designed by TASCAM with carefully selected components. Each HDDA mic preamp is built with a differential amplification circuit that employs discrete architecture, and made with parts selected for their audio quality. These preamps also provide +48V phantom power. 8-channels recording at 96kHz/24-bit (6 tracks + stereo mix track) or 2 tracks at 192kHz/24-bit.
In addition to WAV format, this unit also records in BWF format - which stores the recording start times in the metadata. Using the WAV/BWF format, the DR-680KII can record 8 channels at 96kHz/24-bit (6 tracks + stereo track) or 2 tracks at 192kHz/24-bit. Simultaneous recording of 4 channels in MP3 format possible. Recording of MP3 files with up to 4 channels is also possible at 96, 128, 192 and 320 kbps.
This allows efficient control of files sizes when in situations requiring long recording times. Stereo or mono file can be selected for file type. Digital output and 6 unbalanced line outputs. The unit has a built-in coaxial digital input and output (S/PDIF, AES/EBU) and 6 unbalanced line outputs. By connecting a mixer to the outputs, this unit can be used as a 6-track playback device.The built-in mid-side decoder enables use with mid-side stereo mics. The 1-2, 3-4 and 5-6 channel pairs can each be set separately. Decoding is possible during recording or when monitoring. SD/SDHC/SDXC cards used as recording/playback media. 6 balanced mic/line inputs (1-4: XLR/TRS combo jacks, 5-6: TRS jacks). 6 unbalanced outputs (RCA pin jacks). COAXIAL digital input and output (S/PDIF, AES/EBU).
Recording/playback formats: BWF, WAV, MP3. With BWF format, recording starting times can be stored in files.

Built-in stereo monitoring mixer for headphone mix and/or recording.
Dual-recording function allows two files to be recorded simultaneously at different levels. GANG function allows the input gain of multiple channels to be operated simultaneously.
Pre-recording function allows the capture of audio two seconds before recording is started. Automatic-recording function can start and stop recording automatically in response to the input signal level (48, 24, 12 or 6 dB).Even when multiple tracks are used, all recordings made at the same time can be managed as a single take/file. Track incrementation allows a recording to be split by creating a new file at the desired point without interrupting recording.
Up to 1000 takes and 5000 files can be recorded on a single card. Mark function can be used to move to specific points (up to 99 marks per take). Wheel can be used to change the playback position. Panel lock function to prevent misoperation. Cascade function allows transport control of multiple DR-680MKII units using a master unit.
