Superlative audio fidelity for the studio and live sound rig.

After consulting with top recording and mastering professionals, Korg created the MR2000S Recorder. Designed from the ground up, the MR2000S brings the same 1-bit sonic performance of Korg's M-1 series mobile recorders home for use in any recording studio environment.

Born to Run
In keeping with the MR Series' heritage of portability, the MR2000S adds a number of features to meet the requirements of the most demanding recording studio, yet retains a sleek, single rack-space profile. This compact rackmount recorder is ideal for any live recording rig, for grabbing that "off-the-board" live recording night after night, as well as shuttling your recordings from venue to studio and back again. So whether you want to capture that once-in-a-lifetime performance with impeccable detail, or need to transfer those priceless recordings from session to session, the Korg MR2000S is ready to roll.

Master. Class.
All of Korg's MR Series recorders feature the 1-Bit/2.8224MHz format used in creating the SACD (Super Audio Compact Disc). The MR2000S goes above and beyond this industry standard to provide 1-bit/5.6448MHz recording. At such accelerated sampling rates, the entire sound stage is faithfully captured, even during the softest passages. The clarity, ambience, and true dynamic range of the original sound source are preserved with incredible accuracy.

By mastering in this superior format, the recorded material can always be re-created natively in whatever format you require, providing a true future-proof archive. In supporting these recording requirements, the MR-2000S uses the high-quality components”the CS4398 Digital to Analog Converter from Cirrus Logic and the Burr-Brown PCM4202 Analog to Digital Converter from Texas Instruments Corporation”minimizing any possible degradation of the audio signal.

Format Fiesta
In addition to the aforementioned 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz/1-bit formats (DSDIFF, WSD, and DSF formats are supported), the MR2000S is ready to record in any of the current 16-bit and 24-bit formats (from 44.1kHz up to 192kHz) directly, in BWF (Broadcast WAV) format.

Easy on the Ears, Easy on the Eyes
The fidelity of the Korg MR2000S is a feast for the ears, but the multi-stage LED metering is a treat for the eyes as well. Accurate and responsive, each channel employs 24 bright, color-coded LEDs to provide detailed level information that is highly visible from nearly any vantage point, whether in the studio or in a remote live capture environment.

Got the Hookup?
Versatility is the key when creating an audio recorder with a wide range of applications, and that's where the MR-2000S shines. The XLR analog inputs feature a selectable -12dB, -14dB, -16dB, -18dB, or -20dB reference level, ensuring the proper level match with nearly any sound source. XLR analog outputs are also provided. In addition, the MR-2000S is equipped with analog RCA style inputs and outputs for maximum flexibility.

On the digital side, coaxial S/PDIF digital I/O provides smooth integration into any 16-bit or 24-bit digital studio environment”from the music workshop to the broadcast studio. The Korg MR2000S also provides word clock I/O for reliable digital synchronization between various digital audio equipment or even between two MR2000S Studio Recorders.

Save it for Later
The MR2000S delivers a whopping stereo record time of nearly 120 hours (16-bit/44.1kHz). Even at the highest resolution (1-bit/5.6MHz), the 80GB internal hard drive provides a generous 14 hours of stereo recording time. In fact, the entire file structure of the MR2000S has been designed to provide ample versatility and ease of use. When you begin recording, the MR2000S creates a date folder for that day (just as digital cameras can date each picture). Up to 400 "Date" folders can be created on the hard drive, and each can contain up to 400 "Projects". Each recording creates two types of files: one containing the audio data and a second containing any marker data or protect settings. Collectively, these two files are called a "Project", and the MR2000S recorder handles them as a single audio file.

To keep the internal drive ready and available, a convenient hi-speed USB 2.0 port allows files to be quickly saved and stored via PC. In fact, the MR2000S' internal hard drive can be used as a FAT32 USB external drive to carry source material and other files when needed.

Journey thru the AudioGate
AudioGate is Korg's exclusive file format conversion software, and is indispensible for working with recordings from MR Series recorders. By saving your MR2000S 1-bit recordings as the high resolution archival master, you can then use the AudioGate software to transform the data into multiple format masters. For example”the same source material can be used to create a CD master (16-bit/44.1kHz); as the soundtrack in a DVD (DVD Audio = 24-bit/96kHz), or imported into the latest DAW Session (at 24-bit/192kHz).

AudioGate”Version 1.5 uses refined conversion algorithms that deliver exceptional results. In addition, AudioGate provides useful tools for treating and working with files. Individual songs may be spliced into one, or a single concert recording can be broken out into individual songs. Gain control, fades (in or out, linear or exponential) and DC offset correction are provided. With Version 1.5 you can also adjust the left/right balance, enter locate points numerically from the keyboard, and link individual mono files into a single stereo song. Support for importing new file formats”AAC, Apple Lossless, WMA and even MP3”has been added as well.
