IF YOU ALREADY OWN A ROLAND R-05 YOU MAY STILL PURCHASE SOME OF ITS ACCESSORIES FROM OUR R-05 WEBSHOP BELOW.

 

Affordable General Purpose Pocket Recorder

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 Roland R-05 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 Sony PCM-M10.

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 the useful 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.

 

FEATURES

 

24bit/96kHz recording

The R-05 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.

 

Music-practice partner

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 accessories

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.
