24/96 Recording
The R05 provides pristine, uncompressed stereo recording directly to SD card — up to 24-bit/96kHz resolution. Whether you record directly with the built-in stereo mic or are capturing sounds from an externally connected microphone or stereo line input, you’ll be impressed with the R05’s detail and clarity. And for worry-free recording, the convenient Rehearsal mode ensures that you won’t overload the input.

Onboard Editing
Even though the R-05 integrates fluidly with computers via USB 2.0, this new-generation recorder doesn’t require a PC for editing. For speed and convenience, you can trim, divide, and combine within the R05. And for those who’d like to apply a high-gloss finish to their recordings, the R05 is equipped with built-in reverb.

Rehearsal Mode
In a rehearsal studio, you can make clear recordings of your band, even at high volume levels. The R05 can automatically set the optimum recording level, and can split the songs for you automatically. It’s also possible to simultaneously record a high-quality WAV file for CD production and an MP3 file for file sharing.

Music-Practice Partner
The R05 can help you practice your instrument or vocals. You can repeatedly loop a specified region of audio, or change the playback speed without changing the pitch. You can play back a difficult phrase slowly or play back at high speed to grasp the overall structure of a song in a short time.

For Non-Musicians Too!
Musicians will naturally gravitate to the R05, but this portable recorder is great for many non-musical applications as well. Record lectures, speeches, and meetings, for example. The high-sensitivity, built-in microphone will clearly capture all of the voices in a room. The included windscreen and tripod mount enhance optimal placement and cleaner recordings as well.
