Roland R-07 overview

  • 1Description

Powerful and easy to carry in a pocket, the black Roland R-07 is a portable audio recorder that provides musicians, journalists, or students with high-resolution audio and an array of convenient recording features to capture mission-critical sound on the go. Equipped with an onboard stereo mic and a mic/aux input to connect a lavalier mic or an external device, the recorder supports mono and stereo WAV recording at rates up to 24-bit / 96 kHz and MP3 recording at rates up to 320 kbps.

Bluetooth streaming enhanced with Qualcomm aptX audio technology is also available for low-latency monitoring with Bluetooth-enabled headphones and speakers.

Other features include various reverb effects and a Speed Change function that allows for 50 to 150% change in playback speed, ideal for transcribing an interview or learning a song. The R-07 directly records on microSD cards and microSDHC cards, and runs up to 15 hours on two AA batteries.

    Roland R-07 reviews

    R-07 Portable Audio Recorder (Black) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little pocket recorder! Picked this up as more portable, less obtrusive recorder for casual field recording and studio use when in the go. It’s small, unobtrusive (fits in my jeans, and when I’m using it on the street, people think I’m poking a cell phone. Captured audio quality is good for the price, and the user interface is dead simple so it’s hard to make mistakes. The Android control app works as advertised, and is handy for hands-free operation if you mount it on a tripod and move away. The construction is study but not rugged — I happily throw it in my laptop bag or pocket with no carry case, but I’d worry about repeated drops to concrete or that sort of thing. I’m very pleased for the price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from *UPDATED REVIEW * AFTER 4 WEDDINGS AND MANY TESTIMONALS PROS* BLUETOOTH WITH IPHONE APP IS BY FAR VERY RELIABLE TO CONTROL 2 R07. VERY HELPFUL IN THE SITUATION WHEN I AM FILMING TESTIMONAL VIDEOS / RECORDINGS OF A DJS BOARD. I AM ABLE TO MONITOR LEVELS AND ADJUST THEM AS NEEDED WITH THE IPHONE APP. DUAL RECORDING AS SHOW IN PHOTOS IN ORDER TO GET THE FULL BENEFITS AND CONTROL OF THE R07 I HAD TO PURCHASE A SESCOM SES-MKP-27 TO BE ABLE TO LOWER THE VOLUME OF A HOT MIXER. SINCE THE LOWEST SETTING IN LINE LEVEL MODE IS 40 IMPUT IN DUAL RECORD MODE. WITH THIS SESCOM AND R07 I HAVE AWSOME CONTROL. FOR TESTIMONIAL RECORDINGS WITH A LAV MIC IT WILL RECORD A SAFETY TRACK AND WORKS WELL NO NEED FOR SESCOM UNIT. BATTERY LIFE AND PORTABILITY AND RELIABILITY THE MAIN REASON I CHOOSE ROLOAND R05 AND NOW R07 SERIES RECORDERS. LONG BATTERY LIFE AND VERY PORTABLE AND VERY RELIABLE. CON* THE ONLY CON AND THE ONLY REASON FOR NOT GIVING IT A 5 STARS IS THE ISSUE WITH MONITORING THE AUDIO WITH ONLY A LAV MIC. I USE A TRAM TR50 LAV MIC WITH THESE RECORDERS AND IF I WANT TO MONITOR THE RECORDING TO HEAR THE SOUND QUALITY OR IF THERE IS TO MUCH NOISE FOR TESTIMONIALS THE AUDIO COMING OUT IN THE HEADPHONES SOUNDS LIKE ITS GETTING BAD FEEDBACK OR LIKE A TIN SOUND. I CANT EXPLAN WHAT IS CAUSING THIS. IF I RECORD THEM PLAY BACK IT SOUNDS PERFECT. SO THIS ONLY SOUNDS THIS WAY BEFORE THE RECORDING. THIS ALSO ONLY HAPPENS WHIT A LAV MIC AND NOT AUX INMPUT. I HAVE TRIED SEVERAL LAV MICS AND IT DOES THIS TO EVERY MIC. HOPEFULLY A FIRMWARE UPDATE CAN FIX THIS. MESSEGE TO ROLOAND* FIX THIS ISSUE WITH MONITORING THE AUDIO WITH ONLY A LAV MIC. ALSO IF YOU COULD PLEASE INCLUDE EXT MIC TYPE IN THE SCENE MODES SO WE HAVE THE OPTION OF USING STEREO FOR AUX INPUT SCENE AND MONO FOR LAV MIC TESTIMONIAL SCENE MODES. OTHER THEN THAT I AM A HAPPY CUSTOMER. THANKS.
