Gemini DRP-1 Digital Rackmount Recorder

The DRP-1 from Gemini is a standalone digital rackmountable recorder that allows you to record and playback from one convenient device. Its single rackspace design ensures discreet integration into your rack setup, making this handy recording device ideal for DJs, musicians, bars, clubs, schools, houses of worship and anywhere else high-quality audio recording is a must. The DRP-1 is also great for front-of-house applications, even as a backup recorder for the most sophisticated FOH setups.

For true recording versatility, the DRP-1 features a USB port and SD card slot, allowing you to record directly to a thumb drive or memory card. And to ensure your file format suits your specific recording needs, the DRP-1 gives you the option to record in a variety of MP3 formats or in WAV at 44.1kHz/16-bit. For added flexibility, you can also choose to record in Stereo or Mono mode. And once your recording is complete, it's easy to download the file to your PC or Mac -- just use the included USB cable to connect the DRP-1 to your computer, or simply eject your media storage device and hook it up to your computer directly.

To ensure total connecting convenience, the DRP-1 has a host of inputs and outputs, allowing you to hook up microphones, keyboards and other electronic instruments with ease. Or, if you're recording a full band, go direct from your mixer and capture true soundboard audio. On the back, the unit features a stereo RCA line input, stereo RCA line output, XLR/1/4-inch combo mic input and balanced XLR outputs. On the front, the recorder provides 1/4-inch stereo line inputs, a 1/4-inch mic input and a 1/4-inch headphone jack with dedicated volume control.

Navigating through files and folders on the DRP-1 is easy thanks to its large, bright full-color LCD screen and Search jog wheel. During recording, the display screen indicates information like file format, track time, file number and amount of space left on the SD card.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "So Far So Good"
Overall: I've never done any recording with any device other than my PC, so this is a whole new experience. It took a lot more understanding that I anticipated, and that's where it got to be a good experience. I called Gemini customer service and got "Eric", not once, but twice. What a great help. He explained the little idiosyncrasies of the DRP-1. It wasn't long after that that I overlaid my voice on a couple of .mp3's that I had created as backing tracks for some songs that I use in my solo act. The DRP-1 does exactly what it's supposed to do and that is, to give you a decent recording in whatever format you choose. The only problem I encountered was that the bass was way too strong, but, by tweaking my mixer settings, I was able to correct that too.
Style of Music: I play rhythm & some lead guitar and bass. My music is mostly country, blues & some old rock

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Review of Gemini DRP-1 Digital Rackmount Recorder"
Overall: I do volunteer work for a faith-based non-profit. We were looking to replace an aging cassette recorder to record life-cycle events, concerts, lectures, etc with a unit whose output format was more compatible with the digital age. The DRP-1 was a perfect match for our requirements. It fit perfectly in an available space in our audio rack and easily connected to the existing audio setup. The multiple output formats (WAV and MP3) make it a truly flexible unit. Operation is fairly simple and straight-forward with a minimal number of buttons, thus making it easy for non-technical people to operate it. Since installation it has been used to record several 2-hour sessions and concerts as well as convert a number of old cassette tapes to MP3 files. We are extremely pleased with the results obtained to date and look forward to many years of good recordings ahead.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
