It’s taken just four years for EDIROL to establish themselves as major players in the field recorder market. The ‘R’ range of recorders has already become the industry standard and has been used in every situation requiring professional quality audio recording. Musicians, journalists, podcasters, video editors, educators and broadcasters who need crystal clear, reliable and dependable audio recording have all become fans of the ‘R’ range.
The new R-44 picks up where the R-4 left off – a four-channel recorder that uses SD or large capacity SDHC card storage media for the ultimate in quiet and reliable recordings. It offers very flexible recording options with up to four channels of uncompressed audio available at selectable bit depths (16- or 24-bit) with sampling frequencies between 44.1kHz and 192kHz (stereo mode only). Broadcast wave is also supported and two R-44s can be synced together to offer up to 8-channel recording for surround sound applications.
The R-44 weighs in at just three pounds – despite the metal chassis – for true field recorder strength and features both XLR and ¼-inch TRS jack inputs. The high quality XLR inputs are derived from the EDIROL R-4PRO and come equipped with individual phantom power as well as a limiter. Eleven steps of input sensitivity enable the connection of multiple devices with a variety of input levels from microphones to musical instruments. The high-speed USB 2.0 port allows for quick and easy copy and archive to a computer. Conveniently the R-44 can also operate as a USB host.
Power is supplied by external PSU or onboard AA batteries.
The R-44 also offers comprehensive effects, including limiter, low-cut filter, 3-band EQ, 6-band GEQ, enhancer and de-esser, making it the ideal high-quality recording solution.
The R-44 will be available from March, price £499.
