The R-09 is the latest addition to Edirolâ€™s popular portable recorder lineup.
Building on the success of the R-1, the R-09 takes many of the most desired features â€” 24-bit uncompressed recording and a built-in stereo mic â€” and shrinks it all down into a more streamlined, stylish, and affordable package.
Although itâ€™s ultra small and looks like a gadget the R-09 is actually a serious, top-quality professional recorder with time-stamp capability. Source material can be captured at a crystal-clean 24-bit resolution with your choice of 44.1 or 48kHz sample rates. Record and playback can take place in MP3 format as well (up to 320kbps). Once recorded, files can be monitored through the R-09â€™s headphone jack and/or exported to a computer via USB.
Pretty much self-contained, the R-09 is a point and record and machine. A quality stereo microphone is built right into the unit, complete with a dedicated input control, mono/stereo selector, low-cut filter, and gain boost. The R-09 also offers a 1/4â€� mic input.
Hereâ€™s how Edirol see this new machineâ€¦
â€œThe R-09 is perfect for recording live music events, recitals, and rehearsals. Itâ€™s also handy as a songwriterâ€™s sketchpad, ensuring that no moment of inspiration is lost. But the R-09 has many valuable uses outside of the music world as well. Students can use it to record lectures. Broadcasters and journalists can throw away their antiquated cassette recorders and use the R-09 for in-the-field interviews â€” the audio-capturing applications are endless.â€�
