Roland R-44E 4-Channel Portable Recorder
A COMPACT, SOLID STATE, 4-CHANNEL FIELD RECORDER The R-44E is a compact, four channel, solid-state field recorder that uses SD or large capacity SDHC cards as the storage media enabling quiet and reliable recording for a variety of professional audio needs.
Capture up to 4 channels of uncompressed audio with selectable bit depths (16-bit or 24-bit) and sampling frequencies (44.1kHz/48kHz/88.2kHz/96kHz/192kHz). Onboard effects include limiter, low cut filter, 3-band EQ, 6-band GEQ, Enhancer, and DeEsser. The R-44 is a part of our series of audio field recorders. 24-bit/192kHz WAV recording Solid-state recording to SD & SDHC cards 4 hours of recording time with NiMH batteries Dual gain and sensitivity control Record 8-channels by linking two units. Built-in Effects 3-Band EQ: 3-band parametric EQ ; allows precise equalization with high/low shelving and peaking 6-Band Graphic EQ: 6 point frequency band equalization; ideal for recording Noise Gate: Minimizes noise during low audio levels, cuts low frequency noise Enhancer: Cleary defines and enhances sound; good for dialogue Comp & DeEsser: Cuts hissing, smoothens the sound, makes audio level uniform MS Mic Mixing: Generates stereo mix with specified spread from inputs of Mid-Side Microphones Channels4Data TypeFormat : WAV/BWFSampling Bit Rate16/24-bitSampling Frequency44.1kHz/48kHz/88.2kHz/96kHz/192kHz (Limited to Stereo x 1 at 192kHz) * 16 or 24-bit sampling rate can be selected with any frequencyRecording MediaSDHC / SD memory card (compatible with 64 MB – 32 GB)Recording Time using 8 GB SDHC card16 bit/44.1kHz : 755 minutes (Stereo), 377 minutes (4ch) 16 bit/48kHz : 694 minutes (Stereo), 347 minutes (4ch) 24 bit/48kHz : 462 minutes (Stereo), 231 minutes (4ch) 24 bit/96kHz : 231 minutes (Stereo), 115 minutes (4ch) 24 bit/192kHz : 115 minutes (Stereo) * Recording times are approximate.
