Lectrosonics PDR overview

  • 1Description

Designed for capturing high-quality digital audio that can synchronize with timecode, the PDR from Lectrosonics is a digital recorder which captures industry-standard 24-bit/48 kHz audio in WAV (BWF) formats. It is particularly useful in situations when using a wireless microphone is impractical, such as when distance to a wireless receiver is too far, or when the quality of wireless recording simply won't cut it.

The PDR stores its recordings on microSDHC cards, and accepts audio via its TA5M 5-pin male connection point. An LCD and on-board keypad allow for quick and intuitive operation of the unit's controls. Via simple controls, the PDR's input can be adjusted to record at both mic- and line-level sources, utilizing a Lectrosonics' servo-bias preamp for both 2 and 4V lavalier microphones. You can also monitor directly from the unit through headphones or any compatible line-level device, so long as it boasts a 3.5mm connection point.

To synchronize time code with video and film production, a 5-pin LEMO jack is provided. This ensures that you can easily align its audio in the video timeline of any editing software, and gives you the ability to tether to a camera for the purpose of capturing a high-quality backup recording to boot. At 2.4 x 2.1 x 0.7", the PDR is easy to conceal in costumes, and can easily be left out of sight on a set to capture ambiance, as well as environmental and location sound. Its machined aluminum construction is durable.

    Lectrosonics PDR reviews

    Portable Digital Recorder is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not perfect -- But good Used these on a few television productions where range was an issue for traditional analog or digital lavs. These units are robust with great sound quality. Also love the fact that when the battery dies, the files are saved. Also, the dual track recordings save the day! The bad: Once every 5 minutes, you'll have a second or two of lost audio, very randomly. Also, you'll have drift for longer clips in the timeline when sync'd up with a camera. Also, it eats batteries fast!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Device Fabulous sound quality. Exceptionally low noise pre-amps...can gain up low level recorded clips massively in post with very little or no noise. Dual level recording excellent. Robust build with excellent switches...no switching off or stopping recording by accident. File recovery if power lost very reliable. Must use lithium battery...preferably a new one for each job. Time code jam to Tentacle sync works well as regards the initial sync, but can expect several frames of drift compared to other tentacle synced devices due to internal...but easily corrected in the edit by sliding the audio a touch. Overall no other audio recorder of comes close to it's capability. I have used two of them with the Sanken micfor over a year now problem free.
