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 REC, 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 adaptor.
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/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. *EDIROL designs its USB devices in accordance with USB specifications and has passed all compatibility tests, which are continuously held and organized by USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF).
