Pedigree Portable Field Recorder
The FR-2LE is a compact field memory recorder for
professional use offering 24bit 96kHz recording in the industry standard BWF file format.
It has a good pedigree given Fostex's previous success with their DAT
portables (PD2 & PD4) and latterly with their solid state FR-2 and its optional full timecode
Now with their latest FR-2LE, they have an even more compact offering for high quality field
recording, interview recording (MP3 mode also available), or simple
film/broadcast audio recording.
The FR-2LE is equipped with two professional phantom powered XLR
microphone inputs (XLR-Jack combo) complete with precise control over
the recording level. It features a 1 take = 1 file recording system
which eliminates overwrites and its 2 second ‘pre-record’ buffer means
there should never be a missed take or lost soundbite. There’s also an
MP3 mode and built-in stereo microphone.
• Long Battery Life The FR-2LE can run for up to 4 hours on 4 x AA Alkaline batteries and up
to 8 hours with the optional NiMH BATPACK battery pack. A choice of two
BATPACK chargers are also available - one for the mains and one that
also charges your pack from a 12V car outlet.
