Product Description

Hire this Edirol/Roland R-44 solid state 4 channel audio recorder.
The R-44 can record sound at 16bit and up to 24bit/192khz across up to 4 channels. The unit has 4 individual XLR jack combo inputs (XLR or large jack combined in each connector)and a phono audio out to another device. You can even combine two units to synchronise start/stop and give you 8 channels of recording.

The R-44 records onto SD or SDHC cards and the data can be quickly transferred to your computer via USB or using a memory card reader (supplied). It also features an OLED screen which displays recording levels and other information

This can be paired up with an audio mixer (both fit into one petrol bag) or can be used on its own to record high quality location sound. Use with shotgun or radio mics - the unit will provide Phantom power -48V for mics that require it (switchable on the unit)

The Edirol audio recorder is normally shipped in a protective Peli case with the following:

  • Edirol R-44 recorder
  • Mains power adaptor
  • headphone adapter to convert the built-in large jack to a mini stereo jack
  • 4Gb SD card (good for 10 hrs single channel recording)
  • USB card reader

If you need any more accessories like larger SD cards or batteries please let us know.
