Roland R-05 fun, easy to use and great quality sound

Kenneth8644, 27.05.2014
Having used a Zoom hand held recorder before, I found the Roland much easier and faster to use. For simple stereo recording tasks the built in mic gives great results. The line in option is very easy to control. The input and output volumes are accessible and any clipping is easily corrected as the red led flashes. I found the recorder easy to use in the dark, although those who need reading glasses will need to use them as the display is quite small. Down loading to both Mac and PC was easy with no set up required. Just plug in the R-05 and the files can be seen and dragged across. To begin recording press the record button once, the levels can then be set. Press record a second time to start recording from the built in mic, external mic or line in. I love this little recorder and now use it much more than my previous Zoom model. Highly recommended for high quality, simple (stereo) Wav or MP3 recordings.

Rating from 06.11.10 to 23.08.13. Everything OK.

Dennis731, 17.11.2010
I bought the R-05 since he got four top ratings.

According to my hearing, it takes great noise without noise or very well via line in. Externes Mic I have not tried, but I will not need because because synonymous not much much better results will come out.

On the SD card are demorecordings on it with the built-in Mic are recorded. The best demo is with the acoustic guitar. Crazy sound. The rehearsal key automatically measures the best input level, but you can still go five input steps loosely up and it does not peakt. The with the recording quality MP3 and Wav with 16 and 14 bit as well as sampling rate with 44 and 48 hertz I can not judge whether there are audible differences. With Wav recording there can be problems afterwards on the PC or USB stick.

Must then be converted to MP3. Whom that is the case should better record only in MP3. The Record button can only be operated with the fingernail.

I changed the speed only once. In my opinion one can forget that. The cutting function works for beginning and ending of a song. For professional use, however, it is overwhelmed or you can not create a clean, unmistakable transition in the middle of a song that you want to put together. The unit has no built-in loudspeaker. You can also use the R-05 as an MP3 player. However, he hears up a folder. You can not let everything play. To do this you should have no folders then it should go. The display or device can not represent ä, ü, etc.

Only the Kurzanleitung is in German on paper. The correct book is in English. If you want to read the entire guide in German you have to load the file to the computer.

Otherwise, I'm very satisfied except for the deficiencies which is justifiable because yes for the price not quite professional recorder. So seen everything very satisfied. I can recommend the R-05 to anyone who does not want the Zoom H1 because bad processing and a bit more money can spend.
