From Our Research Team:
Get Great Recordings on the Road!The R-4 Pro shares the R-4's rugged construction, robust feature set and great sound quality, but the R-4 Pro also includes AES/EBU support, SMPTE time code and superb electronics. Record up to four channels at 24-bit 96KHz and monitor each channel discretely. The durable DC input jack allows for industry-standard battery packs to extend your record time. Its 80GB hard drive will store up to 116 hours of high quality audio. You can plug in any standard USB drive and enjoy fast back-ups of your projects. Like the R-4, the R-4 Pro has on-board effects and WAV editing features. Geared for pro videographers and recordists, the R-4 Pro delivers professional sound and features in a package that everyone can afford.
Edirol R-4 Pro At-a-Glance:
4-channels of Simultaneous Recording
The R-4 Pro is capable of recording up to four simultaneous channels of audio at either 16- or 24-bit and up to 96kHz. Why are 4-channels of audio better than 2-channels? It enables you to capture more ambient sound at any shoot for an overall more convincing soundscape. Plus, you can place mics on each participant in conferences, panels, reporters, etc. It also offers the option of a redundancy or backup mic in case of camera mic noise or drop out. .
SMPTE Time Code
The R-4 Pro accepts SMPTE time code which enables it to slave to video cameras or VTRs. Four channels of high quality audio can be fully synchronized with video. In addition, the R-4 Pro can also act as the master, sending out time code to slave devices. This is integral for any kind of serious video production.
80GB Hard Drive
Equipped with a 80GB hard disk drive, the R-4 Pro can record a stereo audio file for approximately 116 hours at 16bit/44.1kHz/ 106 hours at 16bit/48kHz, 70 hours at 24bit/48kHz, 34 hours at 16bit/96kHz, and 30 hours at 24bit/96kHz. This should be ample storage for almost any video shoot or news-gathering event. You can also use the R-4 Pro as a 80GB storage device.
Instant Backup via USB 2.0
The USB host terminal of R-4 Pro enables high speed and instant backup of recorded data to affordable and easy obtainable media like Flash Memory, Memory Cards via card reader or HDD storage. Easy and high speed duplication of recorded data improves production workflow across multiple locations. Edit R-4 Pro files directly from DAWs and other applications.
