4-Channel Audio portable Recorder
Extended Recording Time with 40GB Hard Disk Drive 4-Channel Portable Recorder for Professional Use
Record up to four channels at once. Edit waveforms on the recorder itself. All this plus a compact size and light weight that assure mobility in the field.
Equipped with a 40GB hard disk drive, the R-4 can record up to 17 hours at maximum sound quality or up to 58 hours at CD quality.
L Terminal for Linking a Digital Video Camera
The R-4's L terminal lets you connect a similarly equipped digital video camera to synchronize the camera start/stop while R-4 is recording and playback. Counting the camera's two channels, this configuration gives you a total of six audio channels.
The 4 XLR/Phone combo jacks come with switchable phantom power and give you a choice of MONO, STEREO, STEREO X2, or 4CH recording. In addition, a digital input and output is provided. Four-channel recording gives you good flexibility. For example, you can use mics to capture the ambience of a performance hall while using line input to record the performance itself. Or you can record at several different level settings simultaneously.
Built into the analog stage, the Limiter helps deliver a stable and reliable recording free of clipped noise from sudden input surges.
Built-In Nondirectional Stereo Microphones: the R-4's nondirectional, back electret condenser microphones offer superb transient characteristics and vibration resistance.
Pre-Recording Function: when the REC button is pressed, the current material is appended to a buffer that contains recorded material from a few seconds earlier. This helps prevent missed recording opportunities or sound bites/actualitie at the beginning of a recording.
Five High-Quality Effects
The R-4 lets you tailor the sound during both recording and playback.
