We reported on the new colours for Edirol’s diminutive digital recorder from the winter NAMM show but the company have been in touch to give us some more details and news of some new accessories so we are passing it on. Here’s what they have to say in their own words:
“To celebrate the R-09’s success, Edirol are releasing two special edition models in red and white plus some new accessories, making the R-09 the most complete, innovative and portable recording package on the market. The R-09W (in white) and R-09R (in red) will both retail at the same price as the original black version.The new accessories include a carry case for the main unit and an earphone set with carry case.
The R-09 won the MIA (Music Industry Association) Award For Innovation last year largely because of its groundbreaking design which combines ease of use with advanced recording features. You can record via the high quality, built-in stereo mic in crystal-clear CD quality or in space-saving MP3 format. The unit uses SD data cards (a 64MB one is included) to store your sound – no tape required. All recordings can be backed up to your computer via USB and the unit features an amazingly functional OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) screen for sublime ease of use and data management. It also has an ultra-long battery life so can be relied upon in any situation.� R-09 key features
