Whether onstage, in rehearsal, at school, on the street, or in the boardroom, the R-05 provides pristine, uncompressed stereo recording directly to SD card with up to 24-bit/96kHz resolution. Record directly with the built-in stereo microphone, or capture sounds from an externally connected microphone or stereo line input. The R-05 also features the same I.A.R.C. (Isolated Adaptive Recording Circuit) as the flagship R-09HR, a dedicated analog circuit optimized for recording with the onboard A/D converter.
A variety of practice and performance features make the R-05 ideal for the recording musician. Specified regions of audio can be looped, and the playback speed can be adjusted without causing a change in pitch. Rehearsal mode can automatically set the optimum recording level, split songs automatically, and simultaneously record identical WAV and MP3 files.
The R-05 allows for easy file transfer with computers via USB 2.0, and also enables users to conveniently trim, divide, and combine audio files within the recorder itself. For those who desire a high-gloss finish to their recordings, the R-05 is equipped with built-in reverb.
Musicians will naturally gravitate to the R-05, but this pocket recorder is great for many non-musical applications as well. Record lectures, speeches, and meetings, for example. The high-sensitivity, built-in microphone will clearly capture all of the voices in a room. The included windscreen and tripod mount also enhance optimal placement and help produce better recordings.
