  • 1Description

The Edirol R-4 Pro offers portable four-channel recording and editing with a wealth of useful features. The rugged construction and great sound of the R-4 are still found, but the R-4 Pro adds a larger hard drive, AES/EBU support, SMPTE time code and more.

Discreetly monitor each of the four channels. Extend your recording time with industry-standard battery packs. Record up to 116 hours of audio on the internal drive. Connect any standard USB drive for fast back-ups of your work. All this and more with the R-4 Pro.

Wave editing and built-in effects such as 3-band EQ, noise gate, and de-esser make tweaking your audio a snap. You can even record and play back without any other equipment, using the R-4 Pro's built-in microphones and speakers.
