Product Description

The compact R-05 is easy to use, affordable, and packed with big-ticket features that raise the bar in its price class. Experience crystal-clear 24/96 capture, enhanced recording and editing features, and extended battery life (over 16 hours per charge). On stage, in rehearsal, at school, on the street, in the boardroom -- whenever inspiration strikes, let the R-05 capture the moment with convenience and quality.

Features

- High-quality stereo recording (24-bit / 96kHz) with the built-in stereo mic or external input
- Records directly to SD card with extended battery life (over 30 hours continuous playback, over 16 hours continuous recording)
- Strong, attractive metallic exterior
- Onboard editing functions; built-in reverb
- Music-practice features (change tempo without changing pitch, loop playback, etc.)
- Auto record start, auto song split, auto level adjust
- Pre Record function (captures 2 seconds of audio that precedes pressing REC)
- Use as a high-quality portable audio player (plays WAV and MP3 files)
- Windscreen and tripod mount included

24/96 Recording

The R-05 provides pristine, uncompressed stereo recording directly to SD card -- up to 24-bit/96kHz resolution. Whether recording directly with the built-in stereo mic or capturing sounds from an externally connected microphone or stereo line input, you'll be impressed with the R-05's detail and clarity. And for worry-free recording, the convenient Rehearsal mode ensures that you won't overload the input.

Onboard Editing

Even though the R-05 integrates fluidly with computers via USB 2.0, this next-generation recorder doesn't require a PC for editing. For speed and convenience, you can trim, divide, and combine within the R-05. And for those who'd like to apply a high-gloss finish to their recordings, the R-05 is equipped with built-in reverb.

Rehearsal Mode

In a rehearsal studio, you can make clear recordings of your band, even at high volume levels. The R-05 can automatically set the optimum recording level, and can split the songs for you automatically. It's also possible to simultaneously record a high-quality WAV file for CD production and an MP3 file for file sharing.

Music-Practice Partner

The R-05 can help you practice your instrument or vocals. You can repeatedly loop a specified region of audio, or change the playback speed without changing the pitch. You can play back a difficult phrase slowly or play back at high speed to grasp the overall structure of a song in a short time.

For Non-Musicians Too

Musicians will naturally gravitate to the R-05, but this portable 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 enhance optimal placement and cleaner recordings as well.

5 out of 5 (8 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Product, Great Battery Life..."
Overall: In general, I've never met a Roland product I didn't like and The Roland R-05 is no exception. Easy to set up, easy to operate and the results so far have been very good.I have recorded live bands/music so far from an acoustic duo to a 7 piece horn band with vocals and even a 5 piece country rock band.The battery life with the 2 included double A batteries seems very good also.I did end up buying a 32GB SD card, just to facilitate more recordings of higher quality, but even with the 2GD SD card included with the unit I had no problems fitting quite a bit of material before having to transfer it to my computer.I got a Great price from zZounds and I'm very happy with my purchase.PS: I think I got the unit in less than 24 hours from when I ordered it. :)
Style of Music: Many styles

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Roland R05"
Overall: This is the fourth in the evolution of handheld recorders I've owned. So far it is the best. Primarily because the case is no longer made out of some wacky coating that breaks down over time and becomes annoyingly sticky to the touch. Same great recordings, longer battery life and less expensive.
Style of Music: We are a blues, rock and roll band.
