Roland is pleased to announce that
the R-05 WAV/MP3 Recorder
is now shipping.
This handheld, easy-to-use, and affordable compact digital recorder
provides crystal-clear audio quality, enhanced recording and editing
features, and an extended battery life of over 16 hours of recording
Whether onstage, in rehearsal, at school, on the street, or in the
boardroom, the R-05 provides pristine, uncompressed stereo recording
directly to SD cards with up to 24-bit/96kHz resolution. Record
directly with the built-in stereo microphone, or capture sounds from
an externally connected microphone. For stereo field recording, the
new Roland CS-10EM Binaural Microphone/Earphones
are a perfect companion. Simply wear the microphone-equipped earphones
to capture or monitor the surroundings.
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 automatically sets the optimum recording level, and the
R-05 can also simultaneously record WAV and MP3 files of the same
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.
The R-05 is now available with a suggested retail price of $299 USD.
