OVERVIEW

Record and playback from a single rack unit.

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/¼" combo mic input and balanced XLR outputs. On the front, the recorder provides ¼" stereo line inputs, a ¼" mic input and a ¼" 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.

    Comments about Gemini DRP-1 Rack Mount Digital Recorder:

    I purchased this for my church to record services. The instruction manual was very vague and frankly the unit didn't work like it was supposed to. I sent it back and purchased the Dennon Professional DN 500R. The Dennon unit cost twice the money but is certainly the better investment. The documentation, functionality, and ease of use will be appreciated by my sound techs. The Gemini unit made three of my best sound techs angry because it wasn't user friendly. You get what you pay for.

    Comments about Gemini DRP-1 Rack Mount Digital Recorder:

    I own several recorders and have for decades..this unit intrigued me being rack mount. It operates well, as expected with a couple of out of the box curious oddity's. It records just fine to an SD card or a USB memory stick, no issue. You can select 3x MP3 modes and 1 wav mode. The rotary wheel selects files and adjusts recording volume..so far so good. reading some reviews I noticed some folks talking about erratic record volume levels then returned the unit..TRUE..but the reason why is the unit has AGC and it needs to be turned off, there is no mention of AGC in the manual. In record standby, hold the stop button, AGC ( seen on screen) will turn off. Same with a Noise Gate, turn unit off, pull the mem card., turn on, hold the record button to turn NG off. You cannot delete files directly, no big deal...if you are USB connected to a PC you have to turn the unit off then on and the unit will connect to the PC..delete files thru the PC..or just take the mem card out and plug it into the pc...no big deal. Overall, pleased, keep the record level at the 3rd bar or so and you will have clean recordings with proper volume.Stay out of the black and saturation levels like any digital recorder .For the price this is an excellent unit..if it lasts !

      Comments about Gemini DRP-1 Rack Mount Digital Recorder:

      We purchased another item before this that while less money, it was very complexe. We exchanged it for this one and what a difference. I don't know how well it will work for a band, but for recording our church service it is great. With different people in the sound booth, it is very easy to operate. Just put in your zip drive, push record, and then push record when you are read to start. you can pause or save when you push stop. that was it.

      Comments about Gemini DRP-1 Rack Mount Digital Recorder:

      This is the least expensive rackmount audio recorder available. I use these units frequently for speech recording in various lecture halls and classrooms. It records at .WAV or a handful of useful MP3 data rates to SD card, and I've been told you can also record to a USB flash drive. The unit accepts unbalanced stereo -10dB (RCA jacks) and mic level (XLR) and mono mic/stereo -10dB (¼" phone jacks). It's a decent recorder for capturing audio from the mixing console. The only negative features are that it does not accept +4dB line level at the XLR jack, the time-elapsed indicator doesn't indicate seconds after an hour of recording, and the LCD-based VU meter only indicates higher levels. Fortunately, the headphone jack and serves for confidence when the VU meter is not active. I recommend this unit for basic recording, such as house of worship, classroom, lecture halls or MP3 playback.

              I was excited to get this item disappointed when I tried to use it.
              The construction was okay I suppose, but the sound quality was just awful recording levels going up and down on it's own tried every configuration every Support idea I could think of.

              I need up returning it and moving on.
