The Edirol/Roland R-44 Solid-State SD Card Recorder Kit from B&H is an ideal choice for videographers, musicians, sound designers and more. The ultra-portable unit weighs under three pounds but packs a number of great features, while the Porta Brace case keeps it safe during travel. Record up to four channels of linear PCM audio at a variety of bit rates and sampling frequencies; up to 24-bit/192kHz.
The recorder offers four XLR/TRS combo jack inputs for great versatility. The XLR connections have phantom power, allowing you to use your favorite condenser mic. The R-44 can record to widely-available SD or SDHC flash memory cards, making it easy to store and share your audio. Because there are no moving parts, the R-44 delivers silent, reliable operation that you can depend on.
In addition to the input connectors, the R-44 also offers built-in stereo microphones and monitor speakers, allowing you to record and play back audio without any additional equipment. What's more, is that the unit will operate for up to four hours on four AA batteries. You can also use the included AC adapter to use it via wall power.
The Porta-Brace AR-R44 Audio Recorder Case is a custom-tailored bag that keeps your R-44 protected while giving you access to all controls, dials, and jacks. It offers extra space for storing accessories such as batteries, wireless mics, and memory cards.
Made of Cordura, the case is equipped with a comfortable suede shoulder strap. Also included is the RM-Multi wireless microphone case, which can hold up to four of the most popular receivers and transmitters and attaches to the side of the AR-R44.
