Another portable/hand-held recorder from Roland - this time its a 6-channel affair, with 2x stereo mic inputs - there are two pairs built-in, which Roland assure us are high quality and incredibly sentivie to caputre the finest ambient details. AN OMNI pair and a more standard X-Y stereo pair.
Plus you get the 2x combi analog inputs for line/mic inputs. This gives you 6 channels of 24bit /96kHz broadcast wave format recording in a hand-held package.
The other unique aspect is that the R-26 has a touch screen OS - no more jog and shuttle menu systems, just use your finger to setup this up.
