CES 2018: Roland Rolls Out Portable Recorder


Roland, a company as famous as it is ubiquitous in the world of audio, has a new product out just in time for CES 2018. Called the R-07, it's a handheld recording device designed for on-the-go use and, as such, is perfect for musicians, journalists, podcasters, students, or indeed, anyone looking for a portable solution for recording high-quality audio.

The R-07 gives you multiple recording modes, including dual-recording for protection against clipping, as well as a hybrid limiting function; these two modes, used together, will ensure that you have clean audio capture every time. Thanks to its Bluetooth technology, the R-07 is equipped for remote operation and audio streaming, utilizing Qualcomm aptX tech for low-latency monitoring over Bluetooth.

Looking to record WAV files? The device supports mono and stereo PCM files up to sample rates and resolutions 96 kHz/24-bit. Need to cram as much audio as possible into a relatively small amount of space? Record MP3s at 320 kbps for lossy—not lousy—files.

Also, the R-07 comes equipped with stereo microphones for recording audio straight onto the device, utilizing a corresponding app compatible with both iOS and Android platforms for remote control. This handheld device only requires 2 AA batteries to run, though it can also be powered through USB.
