Good easy live recording!

Rainer289, 09.11.2009
I bought this device to be able to record church choirs simply and in professional quality live. Previously, I had taken a Zoom H2 of our church choir. For concert recordings I was looking for a higher quality alternative. At first I had the H4n in mind, but then again rejected. As part of my search, I found the Edirol R44.

The possibility to record not only a stereo microphone but a chorkonzert, but also with two supporting microphones (eg, for a choral recording to record the tenor and the bass individually), I found very good.

With a few small diaphragm microphones as the main microphone, I then recorded a musical. I used the internal stereoparar as a room microphones. The sound quality of the internal microphones is very good. They do not sound as brilliant as the connected external miniature microphones, but they are very good as room microphones. The stereo image is clean and precise even though the unit was on the floor under the chairs. The external microphones are recorded cleanly. The microphone amplifier is low noise and an extra microphone amplifier seems to me not to be necessary. In this way, I could also create a surround sound for the video part of the event and a CD from both stereos. The device has a loudspeaker, but for a reasonable assessment of the sound during the recording, a closed headphone should be used.

The device handles without complaint all connected power sources and with a set of cheap alkaline batteries, I was able to described above event of approx. 120 min. Without any problems.

Because of the small construction, of course, the operating elements are relatively small. After a brief familiarization phase, however, they are easy to use.

I find it regrettable that, unlike the big brother R4, the limiters and the roll-off filters do not work analogously before the converters, but only after the analog-to-digital conversion, so it must always be carefully selected. It would also be nice if the USB port could be used not only to connect to the computer but also to connect an external hard drive.

First recorder

Antback, 13.05.2015
(Purchase in November 2014)
I'm very satisfied with this recorder: I use it all the time for short films. We can choose how many tracks we activate, but I find it shame the fact that can only activate 2 to 88 / 96KHz.
The preamps of the R 44 are very correct: these are not the best, but for a first recorder they are very good.
The big fault is in the effects display: you can put (for example) a compressor, but there are no values ??in dB for the threshold, which makes it less accurate.

All in all, it is a very good recorder that I recommend for users who know a minimum sound.
