Affordable General Purpose Pocket
The eagle-eyed amongst you will possibly have noticed some similarities
between this Roland recorder and Edirol's classic (but now discontinued)
R-09HR. You are not wrong. Edirol used to
be part of the more music-market orientated Roland Corporation. The
is loosely derived from the Edirol R-09HR but do not consider it to be
an R-09HR with a cheaper price tag. It isn't. It costs less because it
is a down-specified version. So if you are looking for an equivalent
recorder to the old R-09HR then you should be looking at the
However if you are looking for a more affordable compact recorder with
reasonable performance and facilities then the R-05 is certainly worth a
thought. It even includes some of
features of the R-09HR - 24/96 capture, basic editing features, and extended
battery life. So for capturing your recordings on stage, in rehearsal, at
school, or whenever inspiration strikes and without breaking the bank, the R-05
will serve you pretty well.
• 24bit/96kHz recording
provides uncompressed stereo recording directly to SD card up
to 24-bit/96kHz resolution. Whether recording directly with the built-in
stereo mic or capturing sounds from an externally connected microphone
or stereo line input, you’ll be impressed with the R-05’s detail and
clarity. And for worry-free recording, the convenient Rehearsal mode
ensures that you won’t overload the input.
• Simple onboard editing
Even though the
R-05 integrates fluidly with computers via USB 2.0, this new generation
recorder doesn’t require a PC for simple editing. For speed and
convenience, you can trim, divide, and combine within the R-05. And for
those who’d like to apply a high-gloss finish to their recordings, the
R-05 is equipped with built-in reverb.
• Rehearsal mode
In a rehearsal studio, you can make clear recordings of your band, even
at high volume levels. The R-05 can automatically set the optimum
recording level, and can split the songs for you automatically. It’s
also possible simultaneously to record a high-quality WAV file for CD
production and an MP3 file for file sharing.
The R-05 can help you practise your instrument or vocals. You can
repeatedly loop a specified region of audio, or change the playback
speed without changing the pitch. You can play back a difficult phrase
slowly or play back at high speed to grasp the overall structure of a
song in a short time.
• Not just for music
Musicians will naturally gravitate to
the R-05, but this portable recorder is also acceptable for many
non-musical applications as well e.g. recording lectures, speeches, and
meetings. The included windscreen and tripod mount enhance optimal
placement and cleaner recordings as well.
• Wide variety of optional
To enhance and extend your R-05's capabilities we offer several optional
accessories in our webshop section below, including headphones, external
stereo microphones, a microphone stand adaptor, a cover/windscreen set,
silicone rubber case and carrying pouch.
