Any comments on the Tascam DR-60D with the BMCC

Wondering if anyone's given this a try especially as a pre-amp running line out. If so how it sounds/works.

sounds and works great. don't think it's as clean or powerful as the mix pre-d but it has the built in recorder function. I've done 4 mics (on camera ref, boom, 2 wireless lavs) all recorded to 4 channels on the tascam, but fed out to a mix on the camera (lavs on one side, boom on the other)

so far i'm pretty happy with it. but really it's only made me want to a mix pre-d to accompany it

It has digital faders instead of analog, so when you ride the levels during recording they make a clicking sound on your wave file. That rules it pretty much out for me. Too bad, I would love to buy one.

Should have added the Beachtek DXA-BMD as well.

Until BMD fix the BMC firmware, I'd recommend using the audio off the Tascam DR-60D, rather than the audio recoded on the BMC via line out. Just record a guide track to the BMC, then use FCPX or PluralEyes to sync in post.

The digital faders are a massive disappointment. Could've become the defacto standard for budget/DSLR shooting.

But you could just run a good mixer in front of it. But that kinda defeats the point of an all in 1 solution.
