OUR R-05 WEBSHOP BELOW.
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.
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, youll be impressed with the R-05s detail and
clarity. And for worry-free recording, the convenient Rehearsal mode
ensures that you wont overload the input.
Simple onboard editing
Even though the
R-05 integrates fluidly with computers via USB 2.0, this new generation
recorder doesnt require a PC for simple editing. For speed and
convenience, you can trim, divide, and combine within the R-05. And for
those whod like to apply a high-gloss finish to their recordings, the
R-05 is equipped with built-in reverb.
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. Its
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.
