A pocket-sized, 2-track recording studio.

The Edirol R-09 HR takes a step up in audio quality from the best-selling R-09 thanks to its high-resolution, 24-bit/96kHz sample rate; high-quality preamps and components; and 3 discrete circuit boards that eliminate electrical crosstalk. The R-09 HR's frequency response is impressively flat, which means that what goes in is what comes out without noticeable changes in timbral quality. And speaking of what comes out, the R-09 HR adds a noticeable sheen to source material. The updated R-09 HR also includes a wireless remote control, stand, and Cakewalk's Pyro Audio Creator software.

24bit/96kHz linear PCM + I.A.R.C. (Isolated Adaptive Recording Circuit)
Experience precise audio reproduction and clarity with a wider dynamic range when using the higher bit and sample rates that the R-09HR offers. The R-09HR supports up to 24bit/96kHz linear PCM recording, which has over twice the digital audio resolution of a standard audio CD. I.A.R.C. is a newly developed, dedicated analog circuit optimized for recording with the R-09HR's onboard A/D converter. Electrolytic capacitors provide stable, reliable power with an independent power source for the analog circuitry, and another power source for the digital circuit board, thus eliminating DC interference between components in the R-09HR. The I.A.R.C. also contributes to high quality, low noise MP3 recording with the R-09HR.

Professional-grade, high-sensitivity stereo condenser microphone built in
When recording with the R-09HR, there's no extra gear to buy or cables to connect. A professional-quality stereo microphone is built right into the unit, complete with a dedicated analog input control, mono/stereo selector, low-cut filter, limiter/AGC (Auto Gain Control), and a gain boost. The onboard electret condenser microphone elements are very compact, ultra-sensitive, and placed to capture 3-dimensional sound naturally and accurately. To further avoid possible noise interference from internal components, the microphone housing is separated from the main circuit board . . . another sign of quality design from EDIROL (For use an external microphone, the R-09HR offers a 1/8" stereo mic input).

Compact, hand-held body allows for convenient portable use
Small enough to fit in a shirt pocket, the R-09HR has a new tactile feel that is easy to grip. It also has a user-friendly graphic display for ultra easy operation. The large 1.5" OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) display provides wide view-ability, at-a-glance level meters, peak indicators, and additional recording information on the screen.

Preview Monitor (Small Speaker) built in

Without headphones, you can easily check out the recorded sounds right after the recording, thanks to the preview monitor on rear panel.

Wireless remote controller included

With the included wireless remote controller, transport functions such as recording start/playback start, fast forward, rewind, volume control, and input level control can be accessed from a distance away. This allows the R-09HR to be placed in exactly the right position for recording, and allows for quick and easy touch-less operation.

Cakewalk Pyro Audio Creator
The R-09HR comes with Cakewalk's Pyro Audio Creator LE CD-ROM*. This software is perfect for WAV/MP3 audio file editing; to trim cut, or fade audio sections, publish a web page with sounds, to publish a blog with audio, to podcast an interview or performance, and so on. With Audio Creator's virtual toolbox, you are just a click away from recording and editing audio; burning and ripping CDs; cleaning and converting albums to CD or MP3; encoding, tagging, and organizing your sound library; backing up your files to data CD, DVD, or Blu-Ray; and even publishing music to the Internet. With Pyro the R-09HR package becomes truly a complete recording solution suite from recording to CD-burning.

High-speed file transfer via USB 2.0
The R-09 can connect to the outside world via USB for importing/exporting audio files to a computer very quickly. The R-09HR supports Hi-Speed USB (USB 2.0) mass storage so file transfers are very quick and convenient.

Wide variety of optional accessories
Perfect for many recording applications from rehearsals, recitals, concerts, interviews, podcasts, research, photo journaling, law enforcement, to nature and field recording, and business meetings, the R-09HR optional accessories are useful to pros and novices alike.

easy to use hiquality recorder reasonable price!!

By KillahE

Ok. so I am totally into analog but when yr band is trying to write parts to arrange into songs tape really sucks. You gotta be good with organizing cassettes and then have to fast forward and rewind and yr band mates ask you to digitize everything and email it to them. You know these problems. That is why yr looking at this device. Digital is the way to go. This is why I got this device. Well I was really in the market for the ultra cheap zoom model because that is what I can afford but I was able to trade a painting I made for this particular model. If you can afford the xtra hundo for this product I would highly suggest getting it! The Zoom model tends to produce playback crackle even when you are recording below peak levels. Its screen is also inferior. Not only does the Edirol do the job, and doesn't crackle but as other reviews have stated, the quality is so good I would release a demo recorded with this. I recently recorded a band live at a show and had a friend master it and it sounded just as good as a high end portable stereo tape recorder (like the old Professional Sony Walkmen). The analog models of course have their issues... such as being super expensive... alot bigger and maintenance issues that are inevitable. This machine is awesome as a song scratch pad! Its screen is easy to read from all angles.... its "find" button option allows another way of finding a track without waiting for track load if you were just pressing next and back on the main screen. Some people wouldn't release something recorded on this because of their standards... its all relative but this model offers so much clarity for rehearsals... everything is heard so well with proper placement. My only complaint is that it did not come with a mic stand adaptor. for being the more expensive unit it should come with one. But oh well it still kicks tons of tail!
