The R09 is perfect for capturing live music events, recitals, and rehearsals. It’s also handy as a songwriter’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. Wherever, whenever there’s a need to capture audio, the R-09 can do it hassle-free thanks to its built-in microphone and long battery operation.
The Edirol R09 is a serious, top-quality professional recorder; it’s ultra small and looks like a gadget, but make no mistake, it performs. The R 09 can capture source material at a crystal-clear 24-bit resolution with your choice of 44.1 or 48kHz sample rates. You can record and play back in MP3 format too (up to 320kbps). Once recorded, your files can be monitored through the R-09’s headphone jack and/or exported to a computer via USB.
To record audio into the R09, there’s no extra gear to buy or no cables to connect. 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. Just point and record! If you wish to use an external microphone, the R09 offers a 1/4″ mic input.
