Top-grade components, world-class sound -- Searching for the highest recording quality in a portable device? Edirol hand-picked the top analog and digital components for the R-1. The unit records and plays back at crystal-clear, 24-bit audio resolution without compression. Electrolytic capacitors provide stable, reliable power to the analog circuits, eliminating DC interference and offering a truly low-distortion sound. Audio recorded into the R-1 is stored directly onto a removable CompactFlash(tm) card. Maximum recording time is approximately 137 minutes (MP3, 64 kbps mode) when using the included 64 MB memory card. The R-1 offers nine quality modes ranging from 64 kbps compression to 24-bit linear WAV.
Record via built-in mic, external mic, or line inputs -- Need to record quickly, easily, with pro results and without having to buy extra components? The R-1 is equipped with two omni-directional electret microphones for quick and clean capture. It offers superior results using internal microphones because it is completely solid state -- the R-1 makes no noise itself for the internal microphones to pick up. Just press the record button; the level indicator pops up on the display, and you're instantly ready to record. The R-1 also lets you capture audio through its external line or microphone input.
Internal effects, metronome, & tuner -- The R-1 goes above and beyond the competition with its pro-quality internal effects processor, equipped with 13 tools for perfecting your sound (microphone simulator, noise suppressor, hum-cut, EQ, reverb, center canceller, and more). The EQ of the R-1 offers a variety of presets for various styles of music. The R-1 also provides tuner and metronome functions, making it an excellent portable music-practice tool!
Take it anywhere -- Robust, rugged, and ready to travel, the R-1 is built to withstand the rigors of the road. Capture the sounds of nature, record live music, use it as an MP3 player, plug it into your studio gear or stereo for pristine playback -- the options are vast. The R-1 runs on two AA batteries or from the included AC adapter.
Convenient connectivity -- In addition to its headphone output and external audio inputs, the R-1 can connect to the outside world via USB 2.0 for importing and exporting WAV / MP3 audio files directly to the computer. The R-1's headphone jack also doubles as an S/PDIF optical out, so you can stream audio to digital equipment such as digital speakers or DAT / CD / MD recorders.
