Seamless integration of recording, mixing and an audio interface - a new dimension in professional portable recording.
The Roland R-88 includes all the features required by location sound
professionals including a full on-board mixer, various timecode modes
and slate tone/mic for memos. The stereo mix output on the R-88 is
perfect for location sound recording applications enabling a stereo mix
back to the camera to record reference audio or provides a stereo
monitor output while simultaneously recording individual tracks. With 8
discrete outputs you can also embed the audio tracks into a SDI video
feed by using a multi-channel SDI audio embedder. It also features
professional AES/EBU digital I/O to digitally record from or send to a
mixing console or other digital source.
The R-88’s built-in mixer is equipped with a 3-band EQ enabling a
quality stereo mix to be monitored and/or recorded simultaneously along
with each discrete audio track. The large touch screen display enables
clear and intuitive device setup and control. You can lock the display
and front controls to avoid any accidental operations.
Beyond field applications the R-88 is nicely suited for post-production
environments featuring a built-in 10-input/8-output USB audio interface
for multi-channel recording. The eight-output ports are especially
useful for surround projects. The interface function is also able to
provide a backup record mechanism simultaneously recording all tracks to
a DAW of choice.
The R-88 is extremely portable weighing less than six pounds including
eight AA batteries. Optional accessories include a custom carrying bag,
and remote footswitch controllers for start, stop and record, marking
