Ideal part

Achim489, 27.05.2013
I often take courses and seminars with several cameras and different sound sources. So far the R-44 has done very well, but with the necessary improvement of the sound quality, new microphones and radio tracks were added.

The various experiments did not lead to a satisfactory situation. Because of the intersection, 3 video tracks with up to 8 audio tracks from different recording sources (speakers, participants, room) must be synchronized. Since we were very satisfied with the R-44, we considered the purchase of a second part. Just in time the R-88 came on the stage.

We have stayed in the price and are very satisfied. The operation is better than the R-44. Ideally the dual setting possibility of each of the eight input channels. The part is robust and only slightly larger than the R-44 used so far. If you want to have up to 8 input sources synonymous have, in our opinion, hardly a better (transportable) device. We have not been able to test the duration of a battery pack, since our recordings usually have electricity.

The only downside (however only for us): The recording time of a takes is with us about 3 hours. Since the card (32 GB) is synonymous with 8 monospuren barely full, a 128 GB SDXC card is unfortunately not recognized. A bit of buffer would be better. Since we take 2 takes with 3 hours a day, we could get a card with a larger capacity one day. If the 3 hours are over, begins something nervous recording. However, this is unlikely to play a role for most people.

Overall, the R-88 is worth every penny and we do not regret the purchase, on the contrary: we recommend the recorder to anyone who needs many tracks on the road.
